“My uncle red faced and screaming at 14 year old me on his wedding day to make sure I wear condoms so I don’t have to marry some bitch I knocked up.
Edit: This was thirty years ago when having children out of wedlock still carried a stigma. I’m sure my grandfather told my uncle to “do the right thing” and marry her. My mother who is older than my uncle got kicked out of the house at 18 for being pregnant with me and I’m sure that influenced my uncle’s decision.”
They were friends of mine who dated for nearly two years before their wedding. He loved her more than she loved him, obvious to all our friends, and we suspected she begrudgingly said yet to his proposal.
He said his vows first and went on and on about loving her for the rest of his life. During hers, she started with “438 days… that’s how long I’ve loved you.” It seemed sweet until she ended her vows with, “And I promise to love you for at least 438 more.”
Most thought nothing of it and some friends called me a dick for saying it was a subconscious sign she wasn’t in it for the long haul.
She left him exactly that amount of days after the wedding with a note that said ‘I kept my vow to love you for 438 days more, but I can’t for a single day more.’
Friend got married. On his honeymoon, his wife went to the spa, he stayed in the room to chill. Housekeeping came, young cute girl, friend paid her for a blow job. Told me about all proud. Didn’t last a year.
On Monday we got a call the Saturday wedding was cancelled. They were told that they would lose the deposit ( around $7,000).
Then on Thursday they said it was back on. When the guests arrived every one was pissed off. It seems they told everyone was it was off, then two days later that it was on. The ceremony was about 3 min.
The bride then changed into sweat pants and then everyone got angry drunk. ‘Well this won’t last long’ I thought. Then on the following Monday the bride walked into my (then) wives divorce attorney’s office.”
“My cousin’s wedding. The groom invited his ex, who was also the mother of his one year old son (he and my cousin had been dating for longer than two years), and my cousin (who was then very pregnant herself) got into a loud screaming match with him over it in a bathroom.
They eventually came out and got married, my cousin with puffy red eyes from crying that you can see in every wedding photo that was taken.”
