Some peep are so into the comporting and cavorting part, that they can't handle it when the honeymoon is over and real work of a marriage begins.

I'm reminded of the 42(?) hour marriage some female celebrity-type had a number of years ago. (Don't recall who it was - Brittney Spears, maybe?) Married and annulled in Las Vegas on the same weekend, or some such. Makes me question whether it was all just a publicity stunt. "Sanctity of marriage," my foot! :D

I had a cousin who got married in Spain and was mad at my mom and me for not attending. My mum was retired living on a reduced SS and pension as my father had just passed.
She was also pissed that only a few of the 300 she invited showed up.
She would bring it every time we saw her and I just finally cut her out of my life as I could not deal with someone that petty

This thread brings one of my favorite quotes to mind:

Someone was just married for 12 days and got all their debts paid. I might be able to see my way clear to 12 days in Vegas to pay off all my debts. I mean, depending.

I have a brother who's been married 5 times (about).

The 1st -- ended when she started sleeping with "just a friend."
The 2nd -- was called off a mere 10 days after the wedding.
.... They never even moved in together.
The 3rd -- resulted in 2 great kids. Sadly, it didn't last.
The 4th (kind'a) -- they had a fake wedding w/o a license.
The 5th -- just started.
... This one seems to be sticking, for now.

... We're hoping they've both grown+matured a bit.

I have a good friend who is on her 5th, or 6th. When I first met her she was on number 4 (or 5). I get confused because there was one marriage that she didn't mention to most people. One of her husbands died, so she said she didn't have to count him. Anyway this last marriage seems to have stuck. It's been over 20 years.

I'd be up for that, if I could get my debts paid. Oh wait, I'm already married. Is that a dealbreaker? ;)

Sounds like my Mom. First husband, the lumberjack and love of her life, was killed in a logging accident while he was working in the woods. 2nd husband, (my Dad), the career military man. 3rd husband, the heavy equipment construction worker. 4th husband, the railroad engineer. 5th husband, the longshoreman. Marriages 2 through 5 each ended in divorce. Lots of drama at home, violence, fighting, whatever. Husband 6, the bookkeeper, was the one who brought humor and laughter to the household. They were happily married for the rest of Mom's life, almost 20 years. Odd, how the blue collar husbands were troubled marriages, (Mom enjoyed a manly-man, if you catch my drift.) Number 6 was the polar opposite of a manly man, and she loved him deeply. He was great to me, and I was closer to him than I was to my father. They're both gone now, and I still miss them both. I once told #6 "Anybody can be a Father. It takes someone special to be a Dad." :)
