When I see things like this I try to imagine what could be so bad that was left unnoticed all through the dating, courting and then the wedding planning, only to rear its head and cause a total shut down at the 11th hour.
I really sympathize with the couple because it's really difficult calling off a wedding at the last minute. So many couples who knew they shouldn't be together still went ahead to get married because wedding plans were already underway, everything; the date/venue/asoebi/bridal-train/etc was set, the vendors had been paid and guests had already been invited.
So it becomes a question of how do we now tell people that we're cancelling the wedding?
I wonder what the chances of the marriage working out are, in these situations. I'm aware of three situations, all family friends, where the marriage plans should have been canceled but they felt it was already too late; we've already sent out invitation cards.
What will we tell people?
How do we let everything just go to waste?
Well guess what, none of those marriages lasted up to a year.
So is it really worth it?
But what could possibly have gone wrong when two people have been planning their wedding for over a year? How sad...
