Lifestyle| | By Lauren Boudreau
Can you tell an unhappy couple when you see one? These people can.
In a very telling Reddit thread, wedding guests confess the exact moment they knew the “happy couple” wasn’t so happy.
The post asked, “What happened at a wedding that let you know the marriage was going to end in a divorce?” And boy were there answers. From something a parent did to the wedding vows, there are apparently a lot of indicators of divorce.
Check out some of the best responses below:
“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
“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 each other, 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
