    Marmalade Boy's anime version ends with a wedding but not between the main characters.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you so eager to see weddings?

    I'm interested in whether portrayals of Japanese romance in their visual culture impact their attitudes towards marriage, cohabitation, pre- or extra-marital sex, and divorce. And perhaps whether this is an accurate reflection of the current state of Japanese cultural attitudes towards marriage (which is increasing towards postponement or avoidance), or a deviant subculture. If you posit marriage as the mature expression of romantic commitment for a young couple, then out of the number of stories that young people read in Japan, how many reinforce that attitude, how many rebel against it, and how many simply ignore the question?

    Plus, I'm just curious. And I like to see my favourite girls in wedding dresses.

    Actually, Emma DOES end with the marriage, at least if you include Emma Bangaihen, which were released in tankobons as volumes 8-10 of Emma.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    I think they wouldn't have gotten married (or maybe postponed it to the future) if they are not expecting a baby.
