Wed In Doubt

Wedding etiquette for J.Lo's trifecta -- EW gets the important questions answered when it comes to protocol for a third marriage

Congrats, J. Lo, on your nuptial trifecta! Yeah, yeah, this time it's forever, but just in case, EW asked Rosie Amodio, exec editor of wedding website The Knot, for etiquette tips.

This is marriage No. 3. Do we have to fork over a present every dang time?

You sort of do. You have a year to get a gift, and in a case like this where there's a shaky track record...you might want to wait out the clock.

If Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's marriage goes kaput, is the couple required to give back the loot?

As long as you actually go through with the wedding, you don't have to return the gifts. Unless you're Britney Spears and get it annulled right away.

Is it rude to take bets on how long it will last?

Only if you tell the couple.
