Getting married is something that a lot of people aspire to do. Having that one person to be your companion forever is definitely a rather romantic thought that makes a lot of people happy and filled with desire. But, not every person you date should necessarily be heralded up as ‘the one’, not even if you’ve been dating for a long time. They say you ‘know’ when a person is the one, but there are a lot of people who believe that their significant other might be the one even despite all the warning signs.
And yes, the warning signs have been there all along. For example, if your significant other has cheated on you multiple times then marriage probably won’t fix that. If you’re an irresponsible person who can hardly even take care of an animal, maybe you and your spouse shouldn’t be planning to have three kids.
Still, people do wind up getting married to people that maybe they shouldn’t have and other people can definitely tell when that might be the case. Although it’s definitely too late now, the following 24 Reddit users shared the times they attended an extremely uncomfortable wedding where divorce predictions were swiftly made.
1. My niece was 27-years-old, a top-tier lawyer, and a really beautiful woman. She was marrying a thrice-divorced 42-year-old man who has somewhat of a mysterious means of financial support. He was attractive but aloof. Her parents were getting their teeth because they hated the guy. We flew in a day before the wedding and after the rehearsal, I had a few minutes alone with my niece.
I was always her favorite aunt, so all I had to do was ask if she really wanted to marry this guy. The floodgates opened and she started to bawl as she wasn’t sure and she didn’t know what to do. I calmed her down and she told me she realized this guy wasn’t the right man for her however she was too afraid to back out with all time, money, travel, and planning that had been invested.
Long story short, we had a midnight meeting with her parents and she called off the wedding. Of course, it was difficult and the groom’s family went ballistic. Thousands of dollars had been spent but everyone close to my niece was extremely relieved. Instead of a wedding reception, we had a family reunion with all the food. My niece ended up marrying a nice a guy a couple of years later in civil ceremony. They’re stable and have three kids now. (longleglady)
2. I went to a wedding with my husband and the bride there wouldn’t stop hugging MY husband, who unbeknownst to the both of us, was her first “true love.” He thought they were just good friends but all HER friends knew that she was in love with him and was shocked when he showed up to the wedding. My husband was clueless. She was clinging to him and crying, it was horrible and we bolted as soon as possible. (streamstroller)
3. I attended the most extravagant wedding ever but it was a disaster from the start. It must have cost well over 100k. Cocktails were serves before the reception so the groom was smashed. One of the bride’s best friends compliments on how great his eyebrows look. He replied back with “what are you trying to say?” and then tried to kick her out even though she was just being polite.
After that, he kept on drinking. It was time to cut the cake so normally you would cut it and rub a little on each other, but no he ball pitched the cake straight into her face. Everyone went silent, the bride ran out crying, her brothers got in the groom’s face but things were calmed down pretty quickly. When she returned the groom decided to make an apology over the mic, it was an incoherent mess.
As the night was coming to an end, the groom tried to fight the bride’s father and brothers outside. The marriage was annulled the very next day. (heyuitsmeme)
4. This one wedding I went to was pretty nice and everything seemed fine for the most part until the after dinner. We’re all sitting down to eat and someone asked the groom why they got married as they were probably interested in hearing how much the groom loved his bride. Instead, the groom responded with, “Well, tax season is coming up,” and it wasn’t a joke. (tweetchops)
