“The dude was living a double life. [He had a] whole other family in a different State, said he traveled for work, [but actually went] back and forth between family and fiance.”

“My uncle and ex aunt called off the wedding because “god told them to wait” a month before the wedding. They lived across the country so my parents had to fly with three children under 10 years old and the tickets were non-refundable.

My uncle called my dad with the new date, about 6 months after the original date. My mom called him later and when he asked if we would be coming to the wedding she said that she spoke to god and he told her to bring her kids to Disney instead.”

#3. Dirty Laundry Aired

“Family member (very nit-picky) left her husband after two months of marriage for constantly leaving his socks on the floor. To this day, [she] talks about what an amazing man and partner he was if only he put his dirty socks in the hamper instead of on the floor.”

#4. A Wet Controversy

“My wife’s cousin’s fiancée canceled the wedding because they couldn’t agree on where to put used towels after showering. She would put a wet towel in the hamper after each shower. He couldn’t get past the fact that (a) she was putting wet towels in the hamper, and (b) that she only used the towel once.”

#5. A Costume Clash

“One of the most absurd reasons I’ve heard of someone canceling their marriage was because the groom insisted on wearing a costume from his favorite superhero movie to the wedding. The bride had envisioned a traditional and elegant wedding, but the groom was adamant about walking down the aisle dressed as a fictional character. The disagreement over the costume led to such a heated argument that they eventually called off the wedding entirely.”

#6. Unfounded Fears

“One of my former friends called off her wedding because she was convinced the guy was either cheating or would cheat in the future. He wasn’t cheating on her and hasn’t cheated on the woman he ended up marrying years later.”

#7. The Mail Pile-Up

“My friend realized that his girl never opens her mail and just lets it pile up. He said it’s a red flag.”

“Guy I went to school with called off his engagement when his fiancé admitted she was pregnant with her dad’s baby and it was a very consensual situation.”

#9. Secret Identity

“The groom had a fake SSN because he was dodging child support from a previous marriage. He told the bride he had neither an ex wife nor a child. The SSN was figured out at the courthouse when they were applying for a marriage license. He’d created fake documents at a Staples that morning.”

#10. COVID Conspiracies

“During the lockdown, the fiancé was out of work and went Q-Anon crazy. [He] didn’t want his future wife to get vaccinated; she did. That night she woke up to him running a magnet over her body. He said he was seeing if she was chipped or magnetized by [vaxers] and was happy that she wasn’t. She asked what he would do if he found it and he said “cut it out of you.” That was the last straw, thank god. Wedding was a couple of weeks away at that point and they lost a ton of money but she escaped the craziness.”
