Today, it was my wedding day. When my soon-to-be-husband was saying his vows, he didn't say my name. He said his mother's. FML

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; why get married at all?

Sometimes yes, it does, judge not lest YE be judged. It's funny you react like I'm the only one it bothers...it obviously bothered OP or it wouldn't be posted...OP obviously married too big a Momma's boy...My dads name would not be the first name outta my mouth on my wedding day in place of my husband to be...let the flaming continue...

You all are right, she should totally be excited too be married to a guy who had his mother on his mind during said vows on such an important vacation...besides people obviously want to flame an opinion...but then society is more close minded then ever...no surprise there...

My apologies OP, maybe it was slightly harsh, I just really would hate to see a new fml in two months about something going down with your marriage already because you got hurt...maybe it was an honest mistake on his end, if so, life goes on, I wish a happy future to you both...

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 who love their religion, but at least don't be so obviously closed-minded about someone else of you're going to use it against us.

You all may think I'm wrong, but yet there are numerous votes calling me a mistake...my life...and yet that's okay? No one has to agree with me, but also no one has the right to call me a mistake...basically saying i shouldn't be alive....yet , I'm wrong...for the record, I've been married and was nervous as hell and still wouldn't have made the mistake of calling my husband by my dads name...luckily your opinions don't matter...

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!

True but out of all the names he's picks his mothers come on its creepy . When my mate got married she only mixed up her husbands name by saying his middle name first then his name .

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.

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.
