This story is pretty clear for the most part. The groom had a date with some cops, reception still happened with a few obvious adjustments, and the guy ended up someone else. So far so good. Well, not good, but you get it.
What we are still missing here is what did the man do to deserve cops busting into his own wedding and whisking him away in handcuffs? We need to know!
Just Want to Party
People mature at different paces and the pace of the people around us doesn't always match ours. Looks like people around this former would-be groom were pressuring him into maturing faster than he was willing to do so himself.
Fully acknowledging that he wasn't ready to settle down, he decided that this whole wedding business wasn't for him. Despite his later doubts, we believe he did the right thing.
Most of life's choices come down to priorities. What's higher — eating that sixth slice of pizza or sticking to what your nutritionist prescribed you? Calling your ex's when you're feeling lonely or maintaining a shred of dignity? Committing to your fiancee and your unborn child or fleeing to Mexico and being the biggest jerk ever? Most of us will have the same priority about that last one. The groom, though, thought differently.
This storyteller also tells us where their priorities lie. Sure, it was sad and all, but as long as there's cake, it's all good.
Keeping the Faith
Look, we don't really know what compelled the groom into leaving his bride this way, but frankly, we are struggling to think of an excuse that would make us stop wanting to TP his house at the very least.
The sweet bride seems to have handled things bravely with her close friends and family and an adjusted ceremony that shows she still has faith.
Running Away From the Aisle
Remember that scene from "Runaway Bride" when Julia Roberts walks down the aisle and then right before she reaches the actual altar takes a sharp turn and starts running? This story is a little like that, except the walking (bride) and running (groom) are done simultaneously. The horror.
The story gets even more horrific when you realize the bridesmaids were all wearing what can only be described as an orange version of "The Handmaid's Tale" costumes.
