The Becker family is well aware of the high divorce rate. They know about the recent Pew Research study showing that 39% of Americans now believe that “marriage is becoming obsolete”; that’s up from 28% who felt that way in 1979.
And yet the Beckers continue to see the ways in which a wedding dress speaks to life’s possibilities.
“I still believe there’s magic in the institution of marriage,” says Shelley, “that’s why I come to work each day with a smile on my face.”
A bridal gown remains a symbol of hope.
