There are a lot of jokes about it, but it’s pretty uncommon for a man to go through with a wedding they don’t want to go through with. They’re usually the ones that ask, so they are almost always certain it’s what they want. Still, there are a bunch of comedians out there who think that getting married is a bad thing.
Somehow it’s still a punchline despite there being clear evidence that married men live longer, are happier, and are more successful. One of them wrote a little message on the bottom of the groom’s shoes. Yeah, great joke, buddy. You’re going to have a message on your pants soon.
Just Like in the Days of Yore
Back in the day – and we're talking way back – the father of the bride walked the bride down the aisle because she was part of his family until she started her own with her new husband. Nowadays it's a symbol of the two families becoming one, and the tradition continues.
In this instance, of course, the tradition took a turn. Dad split his pants right down the middle right before the big moment. There are a rather large number of stories of men splitting their pants open, but usually, they aren't someone who wants to look their best for their little girl.
There Have Been Worse Weddings
Why was the bride sick? We don't know. We do know that this celebration was one slip away from being a disaster, but it seems to have turned out all right. The bride had to be in the hospital, and just barely made it to her own reception.
Some people can't stand receptions even when they're in the best of health – imagine going to one when you're sick to your stomach and feel gross. Could she even skip out? It's her reception, after all. If it's just the guests and the rest of the wedding party, it's going to feel really strange.
Dads Know Best
As you get older, you start to realize just how much your parents have gone through to raise you. Jobs, bills, medical issues. That's just the tip of the iceberg. After all that time and all that work, your loving parents might end up knowing you better than you do.
So if one of them has a big problem with the person you're marrying, at least give them an ear. They might be totally off their rocker, but sometimes they have a point, like in this case, when a dad embarrassed his daughter, only to turn out right in the end.
Maybe They Were Just Hot
Weddings may be solemn affairs, but the reception is a party, and no one can deny that. People dance, they eat too much, they drink too much, and they make fools of themselves – we all need some time to cut loose once in a while.
On this occasion, the groom's party decided that they needed a little bit of private time with the ice sculpture (the design is unknown). So they did what any of us would do – took their shirt off and parked it in the photo booth. We assume there is evidence. It was the photo booth, after all.
