Tina - I'll give you the fact that maybe not everyone (other than immediate family) gives a rat's ass. I've been to over 1000 weddings in my life as a professional in the wedding business, and have seen everything..of which is nothing.
HOWEVER, I don't think that fact belittles good manners, common decency or politeness, which is what the point of this post is about. It's RUDE to get tanked and make an ass of yourself at a wedding. Worse I've ever seen is overly drunk guests, usually only being rude to me and not bothering anyone else. Just because it's the only thing on the brides mind doesn't mean it is on other peoples.
The society also more easily accepts a relationship if it is the man who is older and not the woman. Even if the relationship is successful enough, he may die or become physically weak long before the woman is past her prime.
If the age gap is extreme, the couple will have to face many difficulties. A particularly cruel factor is if the woman actually entered the relationship due to false pretenses, such as not actually loving the man himself but his money.
