Can We Afford to Get Married?

A recent newspaper article reveals that the average cost of an American wedding is now $28,000.  This astonishing reality forces many young couples to ask themselves if they can afford to get married.  On today's show, Dr. Mohler addresses this important topic challenging Christians to consider whether we have accepted the culture's assumptions about weddings.  A central theme of Biblical theology, the wedding holds an important place in the Christian framework.  Yet, far from being a mere social gathering, a wedding should reflect the centerpiece of Christian Scripture: the gospel of Jesus Christ.
