We also watch SVU but I can't binge it anymore. Makes me too depressed. But the original with Briscoe, I can watch all day.
An episode, I'm surprised they never did was a murder case over paying for a wedding.
I was reading over on a wedding forum was that the fiance family wanted a $20k wedding but the bride's family didn't have that budget. At most, maybe a few thousand.
And of course there is much arguing.
What to do?
Well - if the Fi really wants that grand reception, then let them pay. Though I'd rather take the cash to start your life. You can throw a really good party for a couple stacks.
