I think if it were made funny or more joke-like, it would be a lot better. As it stands, it is super serious and strange. I have no worries of this so I don’t find it offensive. However, it is kind of a strange thing to give a how-to for.

I actually thought it was kind of funny because it’s absolutely ridiculous. I don’t know anyone who still puts the objection wording in their ceremony, and if you do, don’t you think you’re asking for this sort of disruption?  And I guess if someone really felt like they had to make their feelings known before the wedding, then there really isn’t anything the bride/groom could do to stop them. My favorite part was: “Don’t be surprised if things don’t go as you hoped; this is a very left-field, highly emotional charged act. Instead, be gracious, nod politely, and apologize.” lmao.

I think that if someone is going to try to steal away a bride or groom they are going to do it without having to see that how to.  But, I really don’t think that someone should just put an article out there like that randomly when you would hope and assume that most people wouldn’t be interested in reading it?

I think it’s kind of funny, because it reads like the authors really tried to cover every base in a non joking way. But seriously, if you wanted to steal the girl, the wedding’s not the place to do it! 

Does anyone know of anyone that has actually done this? Were they beaten up afterward?

Wow…

At least there are warnings that (hopefully) prompt the reader to seriously reconsider. It’s scary to think that someone could see this article as encouragement. Then again, I’ve seen situations where people have married a horrible person, so in that case it would’ve been nice to see someone break it up! Hopefully, though, no one will take it too seriously.

I love that it says “Here are some suggestions for going about stopping a wedding with class and dignity” 

Um, sorry. It’s really just NOT possible to maintain class OR dignity when you’re doing something that ridiculous!

If that happened to me, I’d give a solemn nod to OK the beat down in the parking lot 😉 haha nothing major, just a couple bruises as a wedding favor to take with them on the plane across the country, b/c the article does make a good point about getting the heck out of Dodge.

i think it is hilarious! It recommends having a job and housing lined up in another country if you go through with it! LMAO

I just re-read this, and I’m trying to control my laughter at work. I think this made my day.

I think its funny because its done in such a serious tone. I would be PISSED if i was the bride. IMO a wedding is not the place to stop a marriage!
