- Wedding: January 2015
So this weekend an out of town friend just got married. She sent me a tripod recording of the ceremony to review with an urgency…
The ceremony was going great, they were holding the rings and suddenly the groom falls backwards, knocks his friend over, and lays there for a moment while everyone rushes around him. At first I had to replay it just to make sure I had seen that right! My friend at first seemed upset but then after a minute she left crying… in the commotion he had dropped her engagement ring and someone stomped on it and broke it all apart…
So she went on to tell me that he did that on purpose, I’ll add some backstory here so she doesn’t just seem crazy.
Her FI is always “sick” when it is convenient for him. She had swine flu and was in bed for days – throwing up everywhere, her FI apparently had it after she got better and “threw up” outside in private where she couldn’t see… no fever or anything. Whenever he’d start a new job he’d get “violently ill” at work within the first few days but when he came home he was pefectly fine. He often “trips” and hurts his ankle and has to call in sick for work but this only happens when my friend has already left for work and when she gets home he apparently was out all day. She has a mental condition that makes her nervous in crowds, he doesn’t… but when he is having an episode he apparently suddenly is more nervous than she is and puts on a show! He also never had a problem with scents until one day on a crowded bus he “passed out” because a womans perfume was too strong, she thinks he just wanted a seat.
She could live with all of that, but now she is starting to wonder. She had warned him weeks before the wedding that he better not pull any “medical emergencies” because this was the one day she wanted to go perfectly. She is furious with him because when she seen the look on his face after he fell she could tell he had meant to “faint” and have everyone rush to help him.
She even sent me times to look at the video, as he is at the front waiting you can see him sizing up the area behind him, at times you can see him almost trying to lean backwards to fall but doesn’t do it, when he does finally do it you can see that he pushed backwards with his legs and didn’t just collapse.
She swears up and down that he ruined the wedding. When they got back to continuing the ceremony there wasn’t a ring for her to wear, there was no big smile in any pictures, she didn’t even get her dance because he was “feeling dizzy” but could stand around and socialize with his buddies and laugh about what just happened.
I just wanted to share this because I had never heard of something so ridiculous happening at a wedding before. She says their marriage may already be over becuase the honeymoon was cancelled because of this and she can’t even look at him.
