You’re invited to a wedding and you’re sitting there waiting for the bride to show up when you realize that you know the groom and the maid of honor… and you know they had snuck off somewhere for some, ah, fun. And now this woman in the very pretty dress is slowly walking down the aisle, just moments from marrying this philandering bastard who cheated on her just last week.
How would your knowing this make you feel? Would you feel some need to jump up and say something when the official in charge asks if anyone has a reason why these two shouldn’t wed? Or would you sit there and maybe think of a way to let the bride know later that her new husband is a cheating scumbag?
Or would you just shrug mentally and say that it’s better her than you – then at the reception, do your best to enjoy your meal while watching the happy couple and knowing that the new missus is clueless?
Would you be feeling some kind of way about this even though you really don’t know the whole story? Hell, is it any of your business to begin with?
My thanks to Jayne for the inspiration for this.
