We went to a wedding on October 18. It was lovely. I just found out tonight that they are already divorced. Apparently, they came back from their honeymoon, and she sat him down and said that the feeling had been gone for about 6 months but she was hoping the wedding would bring it back. It didn’t, so she wanted a divorce. I am shocked! I mean, six months is a long time… she should have called off the wedding. I feel so bad for him because he was completely blindsided. The groom was a friend of FI’s so I don’t really know any of their friends too much except guys who don’t want to talk about such things, but wow. They have been together for about 2 years total, but engaged for about 18 months of that. They already had a house together, and he is basically out on the street. It is such a sad situation for him.

So sad. I had a coworker that something similar happened to. He made a comment about being single, and I was like, shut up you just got married, because I thought he was kidding. Open mouth, insert foot.
His wife cheated on him with his best man after the rehearsal dinner, and dumped him on the honeymoon. Ouch.

People are D****! I would rather be dumped before the wedding then after. How in the world could you even go through the wedding at all? I had a cousin who got dumped after his Fiance had the bridal shower. She took the gifts and ran. I don’t know about people.

I cannot believe that she would do that! If the feeling has been gone for that long WHY would you get married?!

Oh, my God. That is SO awful. : ( She should at least have the decency to let him stay in the house that he helped pay for!

Ridiculous. My old roommate met her boyfriend in August, married him in September and divorced him in November.
She’s working on hubby number 2 right now, and they’re already having problems because she’s “way too clingy” (and she is, she refuses to have anything to do with anyone who isn’t her hubby, even me, who was her best friend for 8 years)… She’ll probably be divorced by the end of the year, they’ve already been seperated twice.
She was in it for the gifts too. She suddenly loses her job right before she gets married and tells everyone how she needs all of these things for her house that she can’t afford now that she’s jobless…

@Amaryllis: What a bitch! She probably wanted to be princess for a day! Ugh! I feel so bad for him. Maybe they can get it anulled instead of filing for divorce. Geez. There goes one more for the divorce rate!

That is really sad. How can you do something like that to someone that you “loved” and sleep at night?

Oh, poor guy! I agree with MsTattoo–sounds like she was stuck on the idea of having herself a wedding & didn’t care what she put the poor man through.

My Fiance had a short first marriage. His 1st wife had an affair after only 6 months of marriage. Some people just shouldn’t get married.

Update — apparently, she did dump him on the honeymoon. They were supposed to go to Florida for a week then cruise in the Bahamas for a week. They flew home on day 6.
And then promptly cashed our gift check on day 7… It was made out to him so I guess I don’t feel too bad, but c’mon.
We all said this wasn’t going to end well for him, but we thought it would be down the road a while.

a friend of mine from work was only married for like 6 months too. she found out after a month that he had been cheating on her for over a year!!! She tried to make it work and forgive him but he kept cheating and she could not take it. I tink it is really sad but she is now happily married with two wonderful kids! 🙂

Poor guy. I can’t imagine doing this to someone, it is terrible. How’s your Fiance taking the news?
