Well that's depressing...
At my wife’s sister’s wedding myself, my wife and my mother in law had a betting pool with the groom’s two brothers on how long the marriage would last. Lowest guess was 13 months buy mother in law. Lasted 10.
They started marriage counseling while engaged. The honeymoon involved separate vacations. Thank Christ there were no kids.
Her second marriage was even worse. (wdh662)
Sister here. Thankfully this marriage never happened; the relationship ended shortly after the proposal, but I knew my brother’s fiancee was a gold digger within an hour of first talking to her. My brother makes a ton of money, and I’m pretty sure that she latched onto him because she wanted him to pay her credit card and student loan debts. There were so many red flags, I’m kinda shocked that my brother managed to ignore them all. When I asked her what she liked about my brother, she said, “Uhhhhhh…. well, he has a really high paying job and he’s good at fixing things, so he’s pretty useful, hahaha!!” She also kept talking about how she was taking time off from medical school, and it became really obvious to me that she was trying to use the marriage as a way to drop out of medical school completely and live off of my brother’s money. She also spent the entire time talking about designer bags and dresses, and how she’d been taking out loans to buy herself thousands of dollars’ worth of bags. I hung out with her for a few hours, and by the end of it, I was 100% sure she didn’t like him as a person at all. I ended up telling my mom, who told my brother, and he confronted her and she admitted to all of it and they broke up. (901238)
So my mother recently married a man that she knew in high school (they didn’t see each other for 20 years, then reunited and got engaged within 3 months). He had no car, no job, and was living with his dad at 40 years old. She didn’t even know he was an alcoholic until after they were engaged. He slurred through the vows at their wedding!
