Steve and Marie entered marriage therapy barely a year after their lavish wedding — a three-day affair that cost more than a hundred thousand dollars. Nothing was spared for the couple's nuptials. Now, the young husband and wife were in a marriage therapist's office, broke and at each other's throats. So, what went wrong? First, with all the money spent on the wedding, not one cent had gone to premarital counseling. When the first signs of trouble arrived — not surprisingly, money problems — Steve and Marie blamed each other for overspending instead of facing their financial shortfall as a team. Their marriage had gotten off to a very poor start. Unfortunately, theirs is not an unusual predicament.
