DH and I have a new roomate.
One of DH’s best friends got married in July and is already separated. DH’s friend is now our new roomate….temporarily.
DH and I have been to a few weddings the last couple of years, but his friend’s wedding was one of those that we didn’t have really good feelings about. I am a little shocked that the marriage actually ended so soon however.
The bride was a complete bridezilla and said many hurtful things to both me and one of DH’s other friend’s wife. We went to the wedding for our husbands’ sake. The groom was “whipped”, as DH says; none of his friends could understand what he saw in her.
She quit her job to be a SAHW, which I think was the beginning of the end, because DH’s friend was finally beginning to see what all his friends had been saying. He came home from work one day and found her with another guy in their bedroom. I think she was really surprised when he left and he doesn’t want to work it out. He is temporarily staying with us until he can figure things out.
They have been married 4 months.
Anyone else know anyone with a very short marriage?

One of my old roomates was married less than a year, 8 monts I think. She was cheating with anyone with a pulse, so it ended and was UGLY!

loveactually15: my first marriage was very short. I wish I had backed out earlier and ended the engagement, but I truly thought that we could work things out. I used to judge people with short marriages, but I don’t anymore. Life taught me not to.

3 months. They got married in March and it was over the beginning of summer. They got married on the beach and it was freezing. During their first dance she said “Next time I’m getting married inside”… I shit you not. I remember looking at my FI and saying that she wasn’t kidding, and sure enough she wasn’t.

There was a couple I knew from HS and were Facebook friends with both of them. They dated for about 8 years and married on my birthday in May. (that’s why I remembered their wedding date). Soon after the wedding, both of them disappeared on FB, and then by September, she was back on FB with a picture of her and some other guy while her ex-husband also returned to FB and just sulked. So their marriage lasted at the most 3 months. I felt really bad for him because he seemed really in love with her. 🙁 It’s been a couple of years and they have both remarried with a new baby each. Luckily, they didn’t have any children together.

The shortest I know of was about 4-6 months. She cheated on him, he got custody of their daughter (which is why they married to begin with.

I know someone who was married late August and is already separated with a restraining order and filing for divorce. It was pretty sad- he seemed like such a nice guy until they got married and he beat the crap out of her one night. What a douche.

My sister’s first marriage. She and her now-ex husband had their wedding in September, were legally separated by early June, and the ink dried on their divorce papers sometime before their would-be first wedding anniversary. In retrospect, I am not certain why they even got married in the first place – my best guess is that because my niece (who, by the way, was not this man’s daughter) loved him, and she didn’t want to rock the boat. I recall that my mom and I were helping her get ready for that wedding, and my sister was crying, and they were clearly from upsetment rather than from joy. In the end, my sister cheated on him with her current husband, but since her ex was verbally abusive, it was a mess all around. :/

BiddyC23: I always wonder how some people who have just gotten divorced or broken off a long term relationship get engaged to the very next guy they meet.

wifetobee63: I broke up with my fiance of 7 years for good in May 2012 and went on my first date with my now husband in June of that year, engaged six months later and now happily married. Sometimes that’s just how life happens.
