getting left at the altar...

must be one of the worst things that can happen to you i was just watching Demi Lovato's new music video (Tell Me You Love Me) about her getting married. And i just thought about other people's marriages where one of the couples leaves... fortunately i have not attended a wedding with a runaway bride or groom. but does this really happen in real life? If it does, i can't even imagine the pain the one left behind feels on what is supposed to be one of the happiest days of their lives

I can tell you about a friend who went through this. She was about to get married to the love of her life . . . but I think at her own bachelorette party, she found out he was with her best friend (the matron of honor for goodness sake). So of course she canceled the wedding, lost her husband to be and a best friend. It didn't exactly happen at the alter, but good thing she found out sooner than later. Thankfully, she later found a good guy and lived happily ever after.

@hereandthere It really did . . . it devastated her - and for a long time. But she was young . . . she eventually moved on to find her current husband . . . they have 2 children who are now grown - all are doing well .

It happened to a friend of mine. He never showed up at the church. He moved away. She was devastated. It was just awful. A few years after that they got back together and are now married.

Wow, your friend has a large heart. Most people wouldn't or would pretend to go along with it to exact their revenge

I've only heard of that happening, but never knew anyone personally that that has happened to. How awful that must be.

I know, it is even more awful when the reason for it is cheating than not being ready

I don't think it happens often, but anyone would be crushed by it. I think it's a very selfish thing to do. The runaway bride or groom must have known they weren't so down with the wedding and pulled out when it was still respectable and a bit less devastating to do so.

right? anyone who does this is quite selfish indeed. Since it is also very embarrassing and costly
