Some women feel nervous and have second thoughts just before taking the plunge.
A recent research has revealed that such second thoughts might actually not augur so well for the marriage and it might be a good idea to pull back a little and take time to rethink.
A study of 232 couples in Los Angeles showed that newlywed wives who had experienced cold feet before their wedding were two-and-a-half times more likely to divorce four years later than wives who felt confident about the marriage in the beginning.
It is wise not to ignore one's gut feeling, and couples must not push such niggly doubts under the carpet assuming that marriage will make things better. Chances are that a marriage begun with doubts and negativity may end in ruin.
