My mom is an ordained minister. I asked her about that once upon a time…I think she had said there needs to be an actual, legal reason. Not “I can’t stand him!” or “she should be mine!” will cut it. The ceremony would go on

I’ve never seen it happen in person (just on TV/movies).
We didn’t even include that bit in our ceremony (custom ceremony), but it was small and everyone there was excited to be there, so it’s no like we cut it for fear of anything. I’m in the US so it isn’t required here, at least where I live!
