8. The sister-in-law – User: 21stMonkey
The user’s sister-in-law wanted to marry her boyfriend. Both of them are rednecks. Furthermore, the boyfriend was abusive. The ceremony was to be held at a tiny park, but no one reserved the spot, so they were denied entrance.

At the reception, the groom started complaining about the DJ, but he didn’t pay a dime. He yelled swear words and insults. Furthermore, he decided to reveal his affair and took off in his truck.

4. Cheating groom – User: br0wnb0y
The couple bound for marriage had met six months before and decided to get engaged. By the time the wedding came, they had known each other for a year. They were very rich people, so there were several events before the actual wedding day.

When the officiant starts to say ‘I pronounce you,’ the groom decides that that’s enough. He grabbed his new bride, turned her and started yelling at the bride’s family. He told them that she was his and that they couldn’t take her away from him anymore.
It was chaotic, and when the bride tried to calm him, he hit her. Naturally, she fled the scene with her family. A few days later, the groom was arrested after breaking into their house with a gun. Luckily, the priest decided to crumple their wedding certificate, so it was never official.
1. The show must go on – User: BigOldCar
The Reddit user told a story about a wedding where the groom smashes the cake on his bride’s face – it’s actually a tradition in many cultures. However, this bride went crazy. She yelled at her new husband, hit him and stormed off.
It was just plain awkward for the rest of the guests. A while later, the father of the bride goes to the DJ, gives him $500 and tells him to continue working for the party. He said, 'Listen, this marriage... is over. She's actually left the building. But I've paid for this party and all my family and friends are here.’
Relationships are incredibly hard, so we all need to make sure that our partners are stable people before deciding to walk down the aisle. Most of these situations are hilarious to onlookers but we can’t imagine going through something this horrible.
