Section 5, "Effects," has quite a lot of statements that seem to violate the article policies. A great deal of this content, while plausible, is not fact but opinion (contra the Neutral POV policy). And while there are some citations, much of the content is probably also unverifiable. I am not personally knowledgeable enough on the subject to rewrite it to my own satisfaction, so I'm afraid I'll have to leave that to others.

  • Also, the "fairy-tale wedding is practically mandatory" description conveys derision with the genre and thus also violates Wikipedia objectivity standards. See the "meet cute" for a trope considered silly by many which is yet written about objectively, not revealing the attitudes of the editor. Critical points of view are meant to be restricted to sections on criticism, cultural legacy, and so on, and cannot be those of the editor himself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joeletaylor (talkcontribs) 22:21, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
