Even if you don't understand why two people are together, that doesn't necessarily mean their future marriage is doomed for disaster. There is so much more to romantic relationships than what family and friends can judge, and it's usually best to keep your incendiary holiday dinner opinions to yourself.

The traditional elements of a wedding can often feel outdated and silly, but many marriage-related customs are still very much alive for some families.
