Don’t worry about it.  DH’s parents got married in 1984, which was also a Leap Year, and they have a very good marriage still going strong.  I don’t put much weight in superstitions, though.

I’m not superstitious, so I don’t think it matters. Not to mention, I doubt that a year ending in 13 would be considered lucky from a superstitious perspective, if you did wait until the following year.

No worries…

Do you think the people that got married on 9/9/99 have a lesser divorce rate than those that didnt that year?

Or that those that got married on 1/1/11 will be more succesful than anyone else married this year?

It will affect you only if you let it. Marriage is about you and the work you put into it.

@Kevanna: I’ve never heard of this. We’re getting married in 2012, and I don’t expect it to be unlucky.

Apparently the world ends in 2012, so no don’t be superstitious, it’s all scare mongering!

I just wanted to say that the only date I would avoid in the leap year would be February 29th- only because I think it would be sad to not have the real anniversary “date” every year.  But avoid the WHOLE year?  Thats just silly.

I think it’s silly to put off your wedding one whole year just because people in your family have a superstition. it doesn’t even sound like you believe in it. do what is right for you and your Fiance.

OMG I never thought about it!

I’m not supersitious and it’s just another year, would you really put your wedding on hols because of a superstition. Try to turn it around and brag about how special your wedding is being in a leap year.

I wouldn’t have even thought about it, and now that I am thinking about it, I wouldn’t worry about it!

It never occurred to me at all. Considering leap years happen quite often it seems that a LOT of marriages would be unlucky by that logic. I just want to get married before the apocolypse next December 😉
