Bride Divorces Husband Day After Wedding After Giving Red Flag

When a couple gets married, it is typically because they have chosen to spend the rest of their lives together. While this path doesn’t always work out, most couples can look back fondly on that day as one of the happiest days of their lives.

Unfortunately, one bride found herself in an entirely different situation the day after her wedding when she had to ask for a divorce due to her husband’s disrespectful and violating behavior at their reception.

The only “hard rule” that the woman had set before the event was that she did not want her husband to rub cake in her face during the reception. To make matters worse, he went above and beyond her request and actually grabbed her by the back of the head and pushed her into the cake instead.

This incident left her feeling embarrassed and horrified, so much so that she decided she was done with him, a decision which received huge pushback from family members who felt she was wrong for ending it so soon.

In response to this situation, “Slate’s Dear Prudence” suggested that despite all these pleas, this bride should still go ahead with getting a divorce because of how much of a red flag this stunt was. It is understandable why everyone would be shocked given what happened but ultimately this woman needs to trust herself when making such an important decision regarding such a key moment in life.

The takeaway here is that communication is key when it comes to relationships, especially when planning something like a wedding which should be one of the most memorable days in someone’s life! Both people need to listen and respect each other’s requests and feelings if they want their marriage to last for years to come.

It’s also important for both partners involved to be aware of any potential triggers or issues that might arise during special occasions like weddings. Being understanding and willing to compromise will ensure no unfortunate incidents occur on such an important day.

Here is the letter the bride wrote about the situation:

I got married just before Christmas and am hoping to be divorced or annulled by the end of January. Obviously, that wasn’t the plan originally, but …

I never cared about getting married, but I wasn’t opposed to it. So when my boyfriend proposed in 2020, we decided to go for it. We each took on about half the responsibility for organizing the wedding, but I think I was pretty reasonable about compromise when he really wanted something. My only hard-and-fast rule was that he would not rub cake in my face at the reception.

Being a reasonable man who knows me well, he didn’t. Instead, he grabbed me by the back of the head and shoved my head down into it. It was planned since the cake was DESTROYED, and he had a bunch of cupcakes as backup.

I left. Next day I told him we were done. I am standing by that. The thing is that over the holidays EVERYONE has gotten together to tell me I should give him a second chance. That I am overreacting because of my issues (I am VERY claustrophobic after a car accident years ago, and I absolutely panicked at being shoved into a cake and held there). That I love him (even though right now I don’t feel that at all), he loves me, and that means not giving up at the first hurdle. I don’t want to, but everyone is so united and confident in their assurance I am making a terrible mistake that I wonder if they are right.

What do you think? Was she justified in her decision to divorce him?
