Nerves make us do stupid things. I completely forgot my vows in the heat of the moment. We still laugh about it 22 years later.

If I were in that situation, I'd probably just laugh uncontrollably for a few minutes, and then forget about it...

54, You don't have to do vows, no. That may turn out badly though because if they don't vow to be each other's one and only, if one of them cheats they could say, "hey it wasn't in the vows."

You don't have to do vows, but the whole point is a ceremony of commitment to one another. If there are no vows, what exactly are you committing to do? You can write your own to say whatever you want, but no vows leaves a ceremony that goes, "We're gathered here to witness the marriage between ____ & ____. Do you ____ want to marry him? .... Do you ____ want to marry her? .... Exchange rings. I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride." No promises; no commitment;

That's a bit harsh considering he was probably extremely nervous I feel sorry for who ever you marry, considering you seem to have zero tolerance for mistakes

PeeNaught- I guess you are perfect in all of your ways for you completely rule out the mess of nerves that comes with a wedding, right? Honestly, it's not like he screamed the mom's name during sex. You're a fool.

Whoa, wait... We are the closed-minded ones here? You want to get rid of someone for being nervous and saying his mothers name, when he could have easily been nervous and thinking about some piece of advice she gave him beforehand to make him feel better? And THEN, you quote the bible, yet you're the one who immediately judged OP's relationship without a second thought as to possible reasons why he could have slipped. Immediately JUDGING he is a momma's boy. I've got nothing against people wh

107, why? I would make a terrible Lawyer... I would hear out their case, and most times decide; "seriously? You sold drugs and now you come whining to me when you're caught with them in your car, while under the influence??? YDI. That'll be $500." I probably wouldn't make any money..

OP, it's your wedding day! This isn't an FML, he was nervous and made a mistake. Not everyone can easily handle a few dozen people watching them while they speak. There's such pressure to be perfect, some people crack under it. Lighten up!

Fmlsea, I'd rather my husband/partner say a parental figures name, rather than some woman I don't even know. A slip is very possible, they talk to that person a lot, have an important issue on their mind involving that person... A slip here or there with a name of someone you mutually know and have no worries about, is better than a slip of some random person you had no idea existed within your significant others life.

If I were in that situation, I'd probably just laugh uncontrollably for a few minutes, and then forget about it...

Fair point, well made. Besides, it's not as if anyone present would let me forget, this hypothetical situation... :P

Don't worry OP, nerves get to even the best of us. Now you have a special, and comic way to remember your wedding forever and how special and unique it was :)

A boy's best friend is his mother :P Jk, don't worry about it too much. It's the same thing as calling a teacher or someone "mom". It's just nerves.

My wedding was one of the most nerve-wracking days of my life. So many potential problems - potentially drunk relatives dancing on tables, forgetting the ring, forgetting the vows, forgetting Mrs. Bastard's name, etc. I can't blame this guy one little bit.

^ Until right now, it never occurred to me that The Doc's real surname could very well be Bastard. :P I very much doubt it, but you never know, I've heard worse. :p
