Wedding Guests Reveal Shocking Signs That They Knew the Marriage Wouldn’t Last

Wedding Guests Reveal Shocking Signs That They Knew the Marriage Wouldn’t Last

Have you ever attended a wedding and spotted a sign or two that gave you doubt that the couple wasn’t quite meant to be? Perhaps the bride wasn’t as happy as you might have expected, or maybe the groom seemed distant and inattentive. We might see these signs every week on Married At First Sight, but seeing them when the couples are actually going through with the marriage for real can be shocking.

One Redditor asked the question “What happened at a wedding that let you know the marriage was going to end in a divorce?”, and the responses have left us a little shook here at MLHQ. Why these people bothered with paying for big extravagant wedding is beyond us!

? The groom looked drunk and the bride seemed incredibly angry. Then there was this woman walking around during the reception placing bets on when they would divorce. I later found out she was the mother of the groom. ~ destinydivided

? The groom said in his speech “when I joined a dating agency I never thought I’d be so lucky as to find my own personal cook, dishwasher, and washing machine.” Not only is that a shitty way to describe ANYONE, he’s in for a nasty surprise when he realises his wife is actually a complete diva and will expect him to do all those things for her! Bad relationship all round. ~ milliet

? Grooms mistress found out he was getting married and showed up at the wedding, in the middle of the I-do’s, walked right up on stage and smacked him in the face. ~ jenngraham2012

? The groom stabbed his new brother-in-law to death, with the knife used to cut the wedding cake no less. Well, technically it happened at the reception, not the wedding.

Backstory: About four years before the wedding, the wife’s brother had shot her in the leg during an argument. Yes, alcohol was involved. At the reception he started loudly telling the guests that he wished he’d shot her in the head instead, at which point the groom got stabby. Alcohol was again involved. ~ aHorseSplashes

? She flinched when he turned to kiss her. They were divorced within six months. ~ unlimitedanna

? The bride had the minister put “Til death, or divorce, do us part” into the ceremony. ~ Owtlaw1

? My cousin (the bride) told us, as she was going from table to table thanking the guests, that she didn’t think it would last. We were stunned. They lasted about a year. ~ [deleted]

? I thought my sister’s wedding was. Her husband got black out drunk and they got into an argument. He passed out and she ended up throwing a bucket of ice water in his face to snap him out of it. She was devastated about it.

Happy ending: He made it up to her big time. Also, he felt very out of it, even the next day. Turns out he had traces of rohypnol in his system. His own brother roofied him in hopes he wouldn’t marry my sister because he wanted their own friendship to remain the same.

My brother-in-law has disowned most of his family because of this and his brother just got out of a 4 year prison sentence. ~ juicethebrick

? Groom got caught getting frisky with a bridesmaid. That marriage lasted for about two hours. ~ SunkenLoki

? Best man did a speech mentioning that the groom came to him discussing if he should break up with her when they were dating. Bride later locked herself in the bathroom crying. Surprisingly 2 years later they’re still together. ~ Falcon187


Well, at least these events haven’t been a one way ticket Divorce City each and every time. Have you ever experienced something like these stories? Tell us in the comments!
