Bad Bride & Groom!
Posted: Jul 6, 2009 2:08 PM

Hey, all--did anyone here read Ask Amy today? Here's a living example of why brides get bad reputations. Deservedly, in this woman's case:

WTF..... Classy, classy people.

They threw a party for themselves and believe they deserve gifts as reparations?!?!? Reparations for having a fake wedding? Classy, classy people.

Ask Amy Amy Dickinson

July 6, 2009

Dear Amy: Recently, my fiance, "Timothy," and I decided mutually and amicably that we were not right for each other.

However, the date of the wedding was looming, and we had arranged and paid for it entirely on our own without assistance from relatives.

We decided to go ahead with the wedding despite our feelings toward each other, but we did not tell our families or friends how we felt because we want to keep our issues private.

A week later, we got the marriage annulled.

My uncle, who gave us an expensive breadmaker as a wedding gift, became very irate when we annulled the marriage.

He left long and obscene messages on my phone and on Timothy's phone, saying he wants the breadmaker back.

Timothy and I already divided the gifts between us, and he has the breadmaker and does not want to relinquish it.

We feel as though we threw an expensive party for our friends and families and, even though we are not together anymore, we deserve the gifts as reparation.

This is causing a lot of tension in my family.

How can I defrost the chilly atmosphere the next time I see my uncle?



    • Single Again

Dear Single: Your selfishness and cowardice have made a mockery of marriage, and now your greed is making a mockery of the generosity of your friends and families.

There is probably not much sense in throwing a little etiquette lesson your way at this late date, but let me try. In this case, substitute the phrase "common decency" for "etiquette"

If you have no intention of staying married beyond a week, you shouldn't lie to friends and family (not to mention judge or clergy) and participate in a wedding.

If the marriage ends quickly, the wedding gifts should be returned quickly.

Your uncle shouldn't leave long and obscene phone messages on anyone's phone, but you do owe him an expensive breadmaker. I suggest you have one shipped to him before he takes you to small claims court or drags you to appear before "Judge Judy."

You owe each and every invited guest an explanation, an apology and their wedding gifts.

Enjoy your single life. It would probably be best for everyone involved if you stayed that way for a while.

Who does crap like this? I mean, outside of stupid made for TV movies?!?! I'd tell her that since she invited me to a fake wedding, I'd be sending a fake gift!

Yowza! That is just... really... wow.

I have heard people jokingly say, "we should just get married for the presents" or whatever... but I never thought that someone actually would! Granted, they probably actually wanted to get married onceuponatime... but still, c'mon!

Unforgiveable... this reminds me of those crazy ladies you see on shows like Snapped! where they pretend to be pregnant for 9 months, then panic when its time to have the baby so they murder a pregnant woman and steal her child.

Okay maybe not that bad, but still pretty shameless.

I hope that's a joke write-in. Otherwise, eww.

P.S. I'm throwing a party next week. If you get me a $50+ present, I'll invite you.

I'm surprised that they went through with it and then got an annulment. I am not surprised that they want to keep the gifts.

My best friend told me about this girl who wanted to elope becuase weddings are too expensive but she wanted to throw a little backyard BBQ afterwards with guests bringing dishes and drinks to celebrate afterwards so that she could have gifts. This bride and groom have just taken it to another level.
That which does not kill us, only makes us stronger. Innocent

Kare your party is rather inexpensive so I will be happy to pay $50 to attend.

Dear HG,

At least they actually got married, if only for a week. We've seen people here who throw the whole she-bang and never actually get married.

Remember the Tax Dodger?

I'll come to your party but my present will be a $50 gift certificate towards a lamborghini so it will actually cost you to use my gift.

wow, some people's selfishness knows no bounds. if i were her family, i'd be wanting my gifts back too. but even so, for the bride to then complain about it like she's the victim. people are awesome sometimes.......
