Most thirty-somethings remember Britney Spears’ first marriage, which lasted only 55 hours. Back then, we thought that it had to be a world record. However, since then, many couples who are not celebrities have beaten that record. The record for the shortest marriage belongs to a Kuwaiti couple, who, in 2019, divorced after being married for a mere three minutes.

It's hard to know for sure, but there were probably some red flags for these short-lived marriages during the wedding ceremony. Recently, people who attended such weddings where the couple didn't last for long shared their experiences, as a netizen prompted them with a question: "People who went to a wedding where the couple didn't last long, what happened?"

Maybe you have attended a similar wedding and have a juicy story to share? Let us know in the comments!

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last My cousin (female/bride) was “dancing too much” at the reception so the groom hit her. My uncles gave HIM a ride to the hospital which he needed very badly by the time he got there. It was annuled pretty quickly.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last During the reception the brides niece accidentally knocked over a drink that splashed the brides shoes and she back handed her in front of everyone. It caused a huge fight and the groom walked out right then.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last The groom was about 35 the bride was 25. The groom was a high-flying corporate lawyer with no understanding that his young wife was far more intelligent and driven than he was.

His entire speech was about how she was a total idiot and how he was her meal ticket and life-guide.

They lasted a year. He’s still doing very well as a lawyer, she was on the board of major organisations before she was 30. He either utterly misjudged her as a person, or was threatened by her.

Either way she divorced him and moved on.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last My very sweet and adorable cousin has epilepsy. We really liked her boyfriend turned fiance and they seemed like a great match. We were all confused when she divorced him a year after their wedding. Turns out after they were officially married a switch flipped inside him and he became very emotionally abusive and manipulative. He would hold her epilepsy medication hostage in order for her to do whatever he asked. He was so psychologically abusive. As soon as she gathered enough courage to leave him, it’s been amazing seeing her recovery to being her authentic, free self again after him.

I have never seen rage shoot from someone’s eyes like that before. She walked out of the wedding, and tore up the certificate. Called the whole thing off. Apparently there had been other red flags with the groom but this was the final straw sort of thing. Honestly, I’m happy for her. Groom gave me weird vibes the few times I’d met him.

It’s kind of handy when you are only officially married once you register the certificate. In my country you are married the moment you sign and annulment is even more complicated than divorce, if things go wrong at the reception there is no easy way out really.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last Didn’t go to the wedding, but did go to the bachelorette/goodbye party. We were in college, she was 19, from a super conservative family. Her long time boyfriend visited her once and was terrible - wouldn’t talk to anyone, basically sulked the whole time. He clearly hated that she was in school. When he proposed, her parents pulled the plug on college tuition because “she didn’t need it anymore.” So she dropped out at the end of her freshman year, moved back to central California and got married to the sh*thead. I never saw her again, but from what I’ve seen on Facebook she finally dumped him in her mid-20s, moved across the country to get away from her family, and was working restaurant jobs while trying to get a degree. We’re in our 30s now, and she still seems pretty angry about everything she missed out on and how she was treated, but she’s living her life on her own terms. Not a happy ending, but I’m happy for her.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last I was at a friend's relatives wedding. Groom slurred his way through his vows. The ring he tried to put on her finger didn't fit. Then he gave a very drunk speech saying if he didn't screw up his life by cheating on his ex then she would be sitting there right now and not his new bride. The ring didn't fit because it was one he bought for his ex fiance. He started crying and left. Like he left the venue. Bride had the marriage annulled. Groom tried to get back with his ex. She had moved on and was engaged already. He then tried to get back with the bride. Fortunately she had firm backbone and told him to f**k all the way off. Last I heard she got with a great guy and they have kids. Groom is still alone.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last From the first time I met him, I knew my friend's exhusband was an insecure, controlling, arrogant a*****e. Interesting that my friend didn't see it, considering what a strong and independent woman she is. Anyway, after he accused her of being in love with a coworker (she wasn't), he spent a furious evening burning all of her stuff in the yard, including her wedding dress and a not inexpensive clarinet. She divorced him before their first anniversary. The bakery that did their wedding cake had a one year anniversary cake written into their contract, so she enjoyed that cake with her mom and sister, toasting to her divorce.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last We went to a wedding and the bride found out the groom was cheating on the bride with her maid of honour. The maid of honour was (unknowingly) pregnant with the grooms baby at the time of the wedding. The bride found out on their honeymoon when she saw a text message from her “best friend” on her husband’s phone informing him of his new parental status.

The bride filed for divorce when they came back home and she moved back in with her parents.

She felt betrayed and humiliated by her friend and husband.

We dropped the husband as a friend as my husband and I have zero trust with cheaters.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last I'm offering up this one because it actually, ultimately, has a happy ending.

I got to know a guy in my home town who had a wife from somewhere abroad. Every time I was around at his house she'd glare at him, refuse to speak to or acknowledge me, and just walk around like the physical incarnation of a thunderstorm. She was the exact same toward everyone else as well.

When I asked my friend about this, he admitted she didn't really like where they lived, that being a town in the UK. And in fairness, it was not the nicest area of town by a very long shot, but he seemed oblivious to this. Their apartment was great, but the area around it looked like a set from The Walking Dead.

That marriage lasted six months. When I asked him after, why they got married, he told me he thought that since he was now (at that time) thirty years old, he should probably settle down. Which is the daftest reason to get married anyone's ever given me.

Then this happened, told to me, by him, after the fact.

From time to time he'd get emails from an old friend of his, a girl who had been a part of his circle of friends when he was younger, and who had since returned home to Asia. When she learned he'd married, her emails dried up for a few years.

Just days after his divorce, she got back in touch for the first time in a long time and he wrote back with the news he was divorced.

Three days later she flew halfway around the world to see him. They became a couple after a couple of days, married one year later, and now have three kids. And live in a much nicer area.

If you have any doubts, at all, don't do it! While my ex-husband and I loved each other, I don't think either of us was "in love" with the other. I felt horrible leaving him (he was still, working in the UK), until i got his letter saying he didn't realize how miserable he was until i left. We unnecessarily hurt each other because we wouldn't face the truth.

Turns out the side chick had no idea either so they had a long talk about him before confronting him.

She got an annulment due to the marriage having been entered into under false circumstances.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last I attended two Disney-themed weddings, and both couples had gotten engaged at Disneyland, spent a fortune on Disney decor for the weddings, and honeymooned at Disneyland. In both cases, the women wanted the whole dream wedding of being a princess and they totally glazed over the reality of marriage and the flawed nature of their outlook on it. They wanted the wedding but weren't ready for the future afterward. Both couples divorced in less than two years. My friends, who had a ceremony at the courthouse, have been together for almost 10 years now

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last Uh...The bride came out to slipknot. They wrote their own vows which were, shall we say, overtly and uncomfortably sexual, and they had been dating for a grand total of two whole weeks.

Any and all attempts to inform them that this was a mistake were met with "When you know, you know." or "You're just jealous."

But hey, a free bar is a free bar.


Edit: So many questions.

The song was the last/bonus track on subliminal verses. I'm told this track is called "Danger - keep away".

The wedding itself was a small thing with a registrar in a council building.

The staff there were very professional, and only laughed quietly.

The after party was at a pub owned by the grooms uncle.

The honey moon was at Butlins.

They were separated by the time they got back.

They were not in the military, just young/dumb.

We are all white trash, and that's fine.

I bought them a toaster from argos. I didn't ask for it back.

Big expensive wedding. Wife wanted a baby, father wanted to wait a little longer but agreed the timing was pretty good for a baby. When the baby was there the father did everything around the house and worked 60-70 hours per week on top of that. Wife cared for the baby but was annoyed by it 24/7 and wanted to work again (2 months after birth). Father bend over backwards to allow her to start her job sooner than expected. Still wasn’t happy and started a new job. Long story short she started f*****g her new boss and after a couple of months it came out. Divorce is through now and she’s with the new boss and now runs his small business with him. They constantly have expensive vacations but struggle for money the whole year for everything.

Ex husband has spent the year reliving his 20s and having tons of fun and is genuinely a very good father. The fact that his ex wife started f*****g a bald, fat 50 year old behind his back helped him lose all feelings for her.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last One of my best friends got married. None of us had met her before but we hadn’t seen him in years and were super excited to reconnect. This was the most elaborate wedding I had ever been to. Tuxes, an incredible meal, a hall that resembled hogwarts, an opera performance and a string quartet playing his favourite rap songs. It was incredible, yet we just knew it wasn’t “him”. We started to mingle with her friends at a table and we soon learned they didn’t really know her.. We brushed it off as we just wanted to be there for him and have a good time.

That was until the mother of the bride made a harmless joke about the bride being difficult as a child. This led to the bride eventually storming off after the dances, locking herself in a room, getting blackout and berating him, his family and many guests who had flown across the country to be there. It all started to click that she was just absolutely psycho. Most of the guests caught the vibe and left by 930pm. Me and my friends eventually sat with her “friends” and shut down the party. From 150 guests down to 8. Why would we let everything go to waste? He quickly came over after he was able to calm her down and apologized to us and left. We honestly thought we’d never see him again.

6 weeks later he called me, he had returned home. They were done. The story just has so many layers to it.

Looking back, in the one day we had been around the situation there was SO many red flags. Thankfully we have him back and he’s thriving.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last Uh, it’s me, I’m the couple.

She started cheating on me like 3 months after the wedding (that I can prove) but I’m like pretty sure she was beforehand, at least emotionally. She cried at the altar, but not a sweet happy cry, it seemed like a really upset “I’m about to make a big mistake” cry. I remember thinking “this doesn’t seem right, whys she crying like that?” But she gave me no hints at second guessing the whole wedding at all so I literally had no clue until we were GETTING MARRIED. So we went through with it, she started cheating 3 months later, I found out about it 3 months after that, and we got divorced.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last Tale as old as time.

One of my roommates in college got engaged to a guy in the army after dating for less than a year. My roommates and I were so confused when she came back from Christmas break engaged.

During our senior year the fiancé was deployed and my roommate became “best friends” with the bouncer at our local bar, spending days and nights with him but denying there was anything going on. Girl, our bedrooms are right next to reach other.

Well when her fiancé got back one of his groomsmen had to drop out of the wedding so she INSISTED her new “best friend” be a groomsman.

I declined the wedding invite because it was obvious how screwed up the situation was and I didn’t support it. Definitely made for awkward times as we still lived together up until the wedding. Myself and another roommate did try to tell her fiancé what was going on but he totally blew us off. I think he was in denial and just made excuses for her. They lasted 10 months I think.

I didn't actually attend the wedding. During lockdown, when we were working from home, this one colleague was always reluctant to have work related one to one calls with male colleagues such as myself. Eventually, I found out that her fiance would moan and get jealous that she was talking to other men on Teams, even if it was 100% professional and work related. Even then, I thought "woah" but figured it wasn't my place to say anything.

They got married about 2 years ago. About 9 months ago, he asked for a divorce by text as HE, Mr Jealous, had found someone else.

(Witnessed by my parents, not me)

During the wedding reception someone asked the bride and groom when they were going to have kids (They had been dating for 8 years before getting married, so everyone assumed they were going to have kids immediately after getting married).

The groom loudly said "Oh man, I'm NEVER having kids!"

The Bride burst into tears and had to go to the restroom. They lasted about a year.

You'd think that's something they would have talked about during that long time, but who knows.

Went to Singapore to attend a female friend's wedding with a Singaporean guy. She'd been so happy up until the actual wedding. My friends and I arrived like three days before the ceremony, and the wedding girl was visibly troubled when she met us. We just thought it was nerves and all that. Wedding day comes and she comes out, in her full wedding gown, with an absolute b***h face. Like I'm-about-to-m*rder-someone kind of b***h face. I'm not even kidding lol. Never smiled once during the whole ceremony and the dinner. She loosened up a bit in the after party, and my gf went and asked if her she was OK. She waved my gf away. Right after the wedding, she went back to Hong Kong for work, claiming there's s**t she needs to do. Then covid hit and we're practically not allowed to travel anywhere for a year or two. We were worried about her marriage but she was always rather evasive, not answering our questions or just shooting the s**t whenever we talked about it. Our circle of friends learned not to ask about it anymore. Fast forward 5 years until now, it turns out that she never actually got married lol. The ceremony and everything was a show. We gathered that the dude probably had another girlfriend in Singapore and she only found out right before the wedding. But then she never said it out loud, hinted it here or there with some close friends of hers. Sh*ts unreal. 6 or 7 of us, with a 4yo kid, flew to Singapore just to witness a show of a wedding lol.

I’ve always pictured Singapore as being one of the farthest places away, no matter where you live…even Singapore.

“Asked For A Divorce By Text”: 40 People Share The Wildest Reasons Friends’ Marriages Didn’t Last My cousin was in a toxic relationship for a long time. They got engaged and he tried to leave her before the wedding. Her family (apparently d**g doing, trouble making hillbillies) pressured him into staying. The wedding was called off about a week before, and was back on in less than 24 hours. He married her and they separated like the next day. They’re getting a divorce now. She just had a baby, and we’re not sure if it’s his or not. This happened pretty recently, so it’s causing some family drama.

I mean that doesn't have to mean the marriage wasn't happy. Unless they started the fight with each other?
