wow that's a pretty amazing love story well, minus the no show for the wedding that kinda love is rare nowadays
Just because people have been together for a long time doesn't mean it's some rare form of true love. It sounds romantic, yes, but just because it's cinematic doesn't mean it's EXTRA special. Plus, chocolates and flowers get a C-/D in terms of grand gestures. When you're trying to win back the woman you jilted, you can't treat it like you had to work late on Valentine's Day. You have to treat it like what it is...breaking her heart and humiliating her in front of all her and your friends and family. Showing up empty handed with a sincere apology is so much better than showing up with your arms full of cliches.
OMG. The Hangover much? I'm sorry you had an ass for a boyfriend after supposedly all these years of true love.
oh dear, this story is near identical to mine and my boyfriends....lets hope the ending isnt the same!
There is a chance his bachelor part was the day before the wedding. There are A LOT of FMLs in moderation about guys oversleeping the day of the wedding after a night of partying. (Not necessarily today, but I've seen quite a few in general.) Give him a chance to explain, there could be a good reason. He seems like he is genuinely sorry, having shown up with flowers.
I hope you're not implying that getting too drunk the night before the wedding to actually wake up in time to get married is a good excuse? Maybe there could be a good excuse (like someone died or something just as bad...) but there are a million ways to actually let his fiancee know that something horrible has happened and they need to reschedule their wedding. I'm guessing since none of that happened, this guy just got scared or something. Which is NOT an excuse.
he's not really your ex. he's just your fiancee that forgot to marry you.
I don't know if flowers and chocolates are enough to make up for having abandoned your fiancee on your wedding day. Seriously, anything short of having been near-mortally wounded in a horrendous 38-car pile-up is pretty much unforgivable. It just shows such an utter disregard for his fiancee's feelings...
I agree. From the way the FML was worded I assumed that he had just gotten cold feet and didn't show up OR call OR let her know why he didn't show up(hence the word EX), until the next day when he stood there with chocolates and flowers...and that is just beyond f-ed up...if he had had a really good explanation he would have called her as soon as possible to let her know what happened. My husband also had his bachelor party the night before the wedding and from what I heard he got totally wasted...he did show up on time though and he looked perfect too...so it's definitely a) do-able and b) not THAT good of an excuse if the bachelor party really was the reason why he didn't show.
