The pastor was not going to marry us!

With the pastor we had organised to marry us, he told us that we had to go to marriage councelling first. I thought this was funny because I thought that only happened after you got married and only if you had problems. We did all the councelling like we were asked and then we were told that we had to do a test to see how much we agreed on. So we did that too. The Thursday before our wedding, we went to the wedding rehearsal. When we got there he told us he wasn't going to marry us because we failed the test. He said that we only agreed on 3 things out of 100. We told him that if he wasn't going to do it then we would find someone else. He then agreed to do it but said our marriage would only last 6 months. We went on with the rehearsal and he got so mad with us because firstly he came making me walk down the aisle. He kept telling me that I wasn't doing it right. I found this to be so funny because I didn't think I would really be rehearsing the way I walked. Then it came down to the part where we had to say the vowels. My husband and I couldn't do it without laughing. Everyone that was watching was laughing too. Then the pastor yelled at everyone, we couldn't believe it. We were all just enjoying ourselves. We were glad when the rehearsals were over. We did get married by that pastor but really regretted it afterwards because he changed my wedding vowel on me. The funny thing is after 9 years of being married we saw him and said that he was wrong and we were still married, he denied saying that we would only last for 6 months. We have now been happily married for 13 years and have four wonderful children. I am so glad the pastor was wrong. Have you experienced anything like this or know someone that has?

Thats incredible. Have you ever thought of renewing your vow's? Id even go as far as inviting this pastor as a guest when you are renewing your vow's. Maybe also put something in your vow's that relates to your first wedding how you could not use your own. 13 years of marriage is a lot these days. Good on you both for loving each other for so long.
