Yep a gf who I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in her wedding we all had bets on how long their marriage would last.  And it didn’t last.. That was a long long time ago though.

Ugh yes, I have a friend who had a tumultuous relationship with her boyfriend. The first year they were dating, he had another girlfriend on the side. She knew he cheated on her more than once, and he was just awful to her. He would get mad or drunk and leave her places, not come home some nights, and basically made her feel like crap. Then he’d buy her things and apologize, and she just ate it all up and was a doting girlfriend. Next thing we knew, she was pregnant and they had a shotgun wedding last fall. The marriage may last because she will put up with anything, but it won’t be (and probably already isn’t) happy.

@harperlynn:  +1, LOL. And yes, I knew a couple like that. Got married one month after meeting each other. Needless to say the marriage lasted about the same amount of time.

Yeah,  friend from growing up got pregnant in high school,  baby daddy one ran off. She was 18 and fresh out of hs when she met,  got pregnant and married baby daddy two. They were married for long enough for the baby to make it home and about six weeks after. They barely knew each other at all when they got married and did it because their families thought they should. She is now somewhat happily married to her baby daddy number three,  but he is military and deployed a lot and she seems less than thrilled about it.

A ex-friend I had we all knew she would get a divorce. When she asked me to be a bridesmaid I said no (HATED THE GUY) Shen ended up eloping. They were divorced in two weeks.

This woman my mom used to work with knew her Fiance was constantly cheating but continued to get married and we attended her wedding. I had fun but the whole thing was just fake considering he had  zero respect for his new wife. Anyway, they got divorced 6 WEEKS later

There have been several couples who were engaged and I knew their marriage wouldn’t last. Interestingly enough, none of them ever even made it down the aisle to begin with.

Someone I worked with met a girl and got her pregnant within about three months. They got engaged even though he always complained about her and talked about how many problems they had. They spent $10,000 on the wedding and were separated after five weeks.

I did! I had a friend who started dating a guy we went to HS with a couple years after we graduated. He was military, they reconnected through facebook or something, and in what seemed like no time at all (months), she was moving half way across the country to see him for the first time since they started dating, got married, then moved permanently shortly thereafter. I gave it a year and they lasted 2 or 3. I knew she was too young to settle down and she was also rebounding bad from her first love.

I don’t know if it counts because they’re not married yet.

The girl is legitimately a hot mess. She probably has some sort of mood disorder, maybe borderline personality disorder? I don’t know. She has been dating this guy for like 5 months. They moved in together. He proposed two weeks ago.

I know this girl and if they manage to make it to the aisle I’ll be very surprised. If they get married I know it will end in divorce. She would talk shit on him all the time, complain that his ex’s were in the picture (there was some ultra-shady stuff that she forgave because she wants the ring– saw naked pictures of him and his ex on his phone but he tried to convince her they were from before) they fight and break up all the time.

Basically, the definition of a healthy relationship. :/

Yes. There is one couple who had the girlfriend tried to stab him multiple times, and he kept taking her back They are now married with three children.

Stuff like that puzzles me. But to each their own!
