“My friend is 30 and marrying a 26-year-old guy. Neither have been married or engaged before. They are polar opposites with regard to humor. I never heard my friend belly laugh; her spouse laughed long and loud about a lot of things. All of us that knew them both were sure it was a good match because she needed to lighten up a bit and he needed to tone it down a bit sometimes.
Wedding day, beautiful on the water gazebo for the ceremony. The bride arrives in a horse-drawn carriage. The ceremony begins and now, ‘may I please have the ring’ part comes. The Best man reaches to an inside pocket and pulls out a huge box of Cracker Jack and starts searching for the ring amid the caramel corn and nuts. Her spouse takes the box and tips a bunch into his hand, saying ‘Bro, let’s just eat it till we see the ring.’ As he makes the first crunch, the Best man gets a big smile and pulls out the ring.
My friend did not find this amusing in any way. Most of us thought it was PERFECT.
I see her later at the reception. She is smiling and taking pictures with her new husband. She walks toward me with a perfect smile on and whispers through her teeth ‘Can you even believe he did that’? I have to really work to keep a straight face, and I reply ‘you will have a lifetime of laughter.’
They divorced three years later.”
