"Last chance to run", seriously...

Woah, if I was the mother of the bride, there would sure be some hell to pay for that bullshit! and if it turned out the groom was responsible for it, there just might not BE any wedding.

If my own marriages taught me anything at all about men, it was "Never Marry Assholes."

I think it's British.

Some excellent comments there.

"The number of guys I work with who are engaged who started pulling the “uh oh, life over soon, har har” shit that I have completely shut down with a simple “well if you don’t want to get married, then don’t”…*sigh* And they’re just like, hem, haw, welllll if I don’t then she might not stay with meee, which I respond to with “well, sounds like you need to have a pretty serious and honest conversation with your fiancee about your feelings then” and then the *panic!* look…"

Because they don't want to get married, and more importantly, they don't want to BE married. They want to 'keep their options open' - to fuck other people, spend their money as they please, pack their stuff and move out entirely if things aren't going well - with no legal, financial or social fallout. But if they have that honest conversation, their girlfriend will either leave, or, worse, decide it means she can keep her options open too, and bail if she gets a better offer.

Unfortunately, a lot of women don't find out that their boyfriends never wanted to be their husbands until after it's too late for them to not be the fathers of their children.
