Weddings should be about the love between a couple and the joining of families, but the issue of who pays the usually pricey bill can be a source of contention. Tradition dictates it's the bride's family's responsibility to take on most of the expense, but modern relationships and weddings are often anything but traditional. Especially when you consider the fact that many modern-day couples tie the knot at an older age and have been independent of their parents for many years. What's your take?
