FML - The follow-up
Emliy Say more :
Hey guys, I'm the OP. To clear a few things up, he didn't exactly ruin the wedding. He and I have always been able to joke back and forth, and quoting shows in fitting situations is almost like a contest to us, to see who can quote a show or movie that matches the situation the fastest and the best. Before the wedding, I was winning at this game, and he saw our wedding as the PERFECT opportunity to take the lead. This wouldn't have been so bad if I wasn't visibly shaking and feeling like I was about the puke throughout the whole ceremony. Don't get me wrong, I love him with all my heart and knew it was the right decision to marry him, but I was still a bundle of nerves. So when he said "Rachel," I immediately burst into tears, because my immediate thought was he was either cheating on me or in love with someone else (I knew the Friends quote, but when you're that invested in what's happening around you, your first thought isn't exactly going to be Ross Geller). So I guess I technically ruined the wedding a little more than him with my horrible sobbing that wouldn't stop even after I had forgiven him... After I calmed down, we went through with the rest of the ceremony. No slaps across the face, no leaving at the altar. We've been together since 8th grade, so I wasn't about to leave him after over 12 years of nothing but love and care.

No, I think it is hilarious but it didn't happen to me. I can understand why OP is upset as a wedding is a special day and OP might have been embarassed and shocked and angry when that happens. You plan everything and you probably have lots of hormones and emotions and if he said the wrong name you would be very upset. Once he'd said it was a joke you might still be too shocked to take it in.

you have to know your partner. If she got upset because you ruined HER wedding with a joke (No matter how good or lame it may be) then you obviously don't know your partner very well.

It's not just her wedding, it's their wedding. If she doesn't know him enough to know that he likes to crack jokes then obviously she doesn't know him very well. She shouldn't have taken it so seriously it will make her wedding stand out, since many are pretty boring anyway.

That being said, she probably got really upset when the joke was made, and likely other guests were shocked too. Regardless of finding out soon after, that feeling was still there on a day that's supposed to be entirely happy.

I'm sure different couples tolerate different levels of "fun" in the wedding ceremony, but these were the VOWS. You know, the part where you promise to love the other person for the rest of your life? Basically the entire reason the wedding exists. And he said the wrong name. Yeah, he ruined it.

I'm starting to think it wasn't him that ruined the wedding, but instead her. Notice OP said "fiancé" instead of "husband"? I may be wrong and she's just talking in past tense, but it sounds to me like she got upset and called the wedding off.

-45 maybe because the groom has a simple suit and tie and doesn't walk down the aisle, while the girl gets a giant dress and get to walk making her the center if attention >_>

Delta, I think you're missing the whole thing. He was quoting a tv show, it wasn't nerves. At that, he was quoting possibly the most popular tv show of all time. It's strange that you missed that.

What's with people adding "child' and " little girl" to their comments when they argue recently? It doesn't make everyone think you're an adult and right, it makes them think you're an ass even if your argument is right.

Delta, I think it's pretty obvious to everyone but you that he did it on purpose. He was making a joke. Some might find it funny, and some might find it intolerable, but that is kinda the point of humor.

DeltaDragonxx - A 24-year old calling someone "child" is laughable, especially when (s)he is simply speaking idealistically. Get off your high fucking horse before you fall. You don't know half as much as you think you do.

I would be a little shocked at first too, but after hearing it's a friends quote I would think that was hilarious myself. Don't be so upset OP life is too short. Just be glad he REALLY didn't mistake your name for an actual Rachel.
