SHE DIDN’T BOTHER WITH A PRENUP AND SHE DRESSED IN A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING DRESS BUT HER VOWS WERE HER REVENGE!
With or without a Prenuptial Agreement, getting married is one of the most significant moments in a woman’s life. Before you walk down that aisle, make sure that you KNOW your spouse-to-be. Have your friends warned you and suggested that you not go through with it? Making a mistake by walking down the aisle to “save face” after all of the expensive planning, can cost you in the future. A divorce can result in a negative financial impact not to mention that it can be terribly difficult emotionally.
So, this takes us now to Australia, where Karen (nope, not her real name) and Alex had decided to tie the knot. Karen had a gorgeous wedding gown. And it was a day she had dreamed of since she was a little girl. And now, it is the night before the wedding. Enjoying the evening with her BFFs and a very fancy hotel room, she received THE TEXT. You know…the kind of text that makes your heart stop. It said, “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?” And with it, Screenshots of amorous exchanges between Alex and Tiffany …many of which were just days old came flooding into her phone.
So, like many women, Karen decided to go ahead with the wedding, stating that she couldn’t face cancelling when people had traveled to be there and everything had been paid.
And then at the alter, she began her vows that she had written herself, which began with “It seems Alex is not who I thought he was”…The color in Alex’s face was gone. He said nothing as she read aloud his cheating texts to everyone in the church. He then walked out with his best man, and with his family looking on in horror.
The reception apparently was fun. She and her BFFs chose to celebrate following your heart even when it hurts.
The endnote here: know who you are marrying. Now that Karen can look back, she probably can point to some signs that all was not wonderful in that relationship.
