The question:What happened at a wedding that let you know the marriage was going to end in a divorce? 

"The groom looked drunk and the bride seemed incredibly angry. Then there was this woman walking around during the reception placing bets on when they would divorce. I later found out she was the mother of the groom." - DestinyDivided

"The bride had the minister put "Til death, or divorce, do us part" into the ceremony." - owtlaw1

7 things to never do when you're on a hen party

"'I've been planning this wedding since I was eight!' was her second marriage." - Captain_Trigg

"When my new wife's uncle and his son threw 200 live crickets into the front seat of our car as we got in it to leave the reception. 200 live crickets. They thought it was hilarious. My groomsmen had to drag me into the reception hall to keep me from going after them/having a meltdown on camera. My wife was covered in crickets." - sixteen_down

"The groom saying the bride looked really chubby in her wedding dress. The groom making fun of the deaf grandmother. The groom existing." - Bendrake 

16 wedding reception details your guests will LOVE

"The groom stabbed his new brother-in-law to death, with the knife used to cut the wedding cake no less. Well, technically it happened at the reception, not the wedding. Backstory: About four years before the wedding, the wife's brother had shot her in the leg during an argument. Yes, alcohol was involved. At the reception he started loudly telling the guests that he wished he'd shot her in the head instead, at which point the groom got stabby. Alcohol was again involved." - aHorseSplashes

"Groom got caught getting frisky with a bridesmaid. That marriage lasted for about two hours." - SunkenLoki

"Groom mashed the cake into the (pregnant) brides face so hard she went down backwards. Groom and his father ended up fist fighting in the bathroom, cops were called, fun times...." - efd0904

6 things to do with your wedding guestbook

"Groom got so drunk at the reception he passed out in the honeymoon suite by himself, but not before he latched the door so it couldn't be unlocked from the outside. Seeing the bride kicking the door and hollering at the top of her lungs to be let in at 3 am was not encouraging. They divorced like two years later." - Big_daddy_c 

"The groom pulled the ring off of [the bride's] finger during the reception and swallowed it 'as a joke'." - ColonialChicken

"She flinched when he turned to kiss her. They were divorced within six months." - unlimiteddanna

25 songs that will end your reception in style

"My mom was at a wedding where the groom said in his vows, "I'll love you as long as it's convenient." - diceorama 

"At the rehearsal dinner, the groom's mom is in tears, because "he looks miserable" and he was, we all knew it. During the vows they had written for eachother, the bride starts with "I know I can be a pretty terrible person, and I don't know why you've stuck around, but that's all going to change starting today! They were divorced a year later." - vogelarcher15

"The bride smashed the cake in the groom's face. He put the piece he was holding back down and walked quickly out of the building. The DJ awkwardly transitioned back to music and dancing but everyone was just standing around talking about what just happened. She followed him a few minutes later and they came back to the reception for a bit, but it was weird and uncomfortable. They held on for a year before getting a divorce." - BearyPotter

"At my cousin's wedding, they were under a carved wooden arch intertwined with white roses. When the pastor uttered the words "If any of you has reasons why these two should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace," a rose broke off the arch and bounced off the pastors head. Everyone laughed. They ended up getting divorced." - Plumhawk
