Bride divorces husband 48 hours after wedding over one thing

Share This

A bride has been applauded for her decision to divorce her new husband just two days after their wedding – after he left her red-faced during their wedding.

She revealed how her then-fiance, Jake, had become obsessed with watching videos of wedding pranks in the lead-up to their nuptials. Despite his promise not to pull any stunts, he went against her wishes.

On Reddit, she said: “Among other things, these videos showed embarrassing photos of the bride being played on a projector in front of the whole room or the bride’s face being smashed into the cake. I told him straight away that I didn’t want anything like that at our wedding. He just laughed and said that he wasn’t planning anything like that.”

The bride said: “I thought that was the end of it but I kept catching him making strange arrangements with his friends. He suddenly wanted to choose the wedding photographer and the cake.

Initially pleased with his newfound interest in their wedding details, she encouraged him to take the initiative with the photographer and bakery. However, she issued him a warning the day before their wedding, reports the Mirror.

The bride said: “I reminded him the day before that if he did something like that [a prank], I would break up with him immediately.

“When the day of the wedding came, everything went smoothly until the ceremony. Until the moment came when the cake was to be cut.

“The whole room watched as I made the first cut and the photographer stood in front of us with camera in hand. Suddenly I felt a hand on the back of my head pushing me face-first into the cake. Not only my make-up but the whole wedding dress was ruined and the whole room laughed, my husband the loudest.

“At that moment the photographer took the photo and Jake said that this was now our wedding photo.”

Furious, she turned around and slapped Jake across the face before running out of the room in tears. Wanting to make sure she was OK, her new brother-in-law, Frank, chased after her to check on her.

She added: “Thank god karma didn’t take long to arrive and came in the form of his own brother. I ran to the toilet and started crying when I suddenly heard loud shouting from the hall. it was his brother Frank. I could barely understand what he was saying and when I left the toilet he was waiting for me.”

“He told me that Jake had something to tell me. jake was shaking and apologised without looking me in the eye. Frank told him to look me in the eye and apologise again.

“Even I was a bit scared of Frank at that moment because I had always thought of him as a kind and gentle man. I had never seen him angry before.

“Jake apologised again and then Frank led us back into the hall which was suddenly very quiet and most of our families looked down at the floor a little embarrassed. the festivities were cut short and I was taken home by Frank because I was too angry with my husband and I didn’t want to see him.”

During their drive home, Frank apologised for “blowing up” and revealed how Jake would do everything in his power to spoil every special occasion when they were children.

“When it was Frank’s birthday, my husband would throw his cake at him and break his presents,” she said. “But back then, their parents always brushed it all off by saying that that’s just how brothers behave. so he had to endure every humiliation, but when he saw my husband bury my face in the cake, he was fed up because he realised that my husband was just a bad person who got his satisfaction from humiliating others.

“I asked Frank if he thought it would be an exaggeration if I separated from my husband and he said no, because according to him I deserved better and he didn’t care how his brother felt about it because he had brought it on himself. then he told me that if I needed help collecting my things he would help me and gave me his number.”

She decided to file for divorce from her husband just 48 hours after their wedding. She explained: “Jake just told me not to do that because it was just a harmless prank. I was spammed by both his family and mine that it would be ridiculous to end our marriage over this.

“But I see it differently. If he does something like this to me despite multiple requests not to do it even after promising he wouldn’t do it then I can’t trust him. no matter what he promises me. I have to assume that the opposite can and will happen – and that he doesn’t care at all how I feel about his decisions.

“This situation can be projected onto so many much worse situations where it would be important for me to be able to trust him. His brother Frank seems to be the only one who supports me now and I will go through with the divorce. Call me humorless, call me what you want but I have given my reasons.”

A user responded to her story, saying: “I’m sorry this happened, but so proud of you. You warned him multiple times and he felt it was more important to get laughs than be a trustworthy partner. I don’t know why people think humiliation is a prank. If you have to explain that it was a joke, it’s not funny.

“Best of luck. Please let Frank know he’s a good man, and we appreciate him having your back.”

Another reader commented: “He lied and was disrespectful. Obviously not the things you want in a marriage. Divorcing him now will save you from dealing with more boundaries being broken and heartache. You deserve better.”

A third commenter pointed out: “You told him what the consequences would be. Now he gets to live with that choice. I don’t think you have to divorce. If you don’t file the marriage certificate within a certain amount of time, you aren’t legally married. Just make sure he doesn’t file it on your behalf.”
