A high school classmate recently shared a funny story about her marriage and someone else’s divorce which is worth sharing.
“We lived together for eight years before we got married. We had been saving for a house and wanted to start a family so we didn’t want to spend money on a wedding, so we eloped to a local courthouse. We were ushered into a courtroom where a bitter divorce fight was going on. We sat in the back and listened to insults and anger. Finally, the bailiff handed a note to the judge who stopped the proceedings and called a short recess. “There’s a couple here who wants to get married!”
We stood before the judge and said all the words to make us married. Then he said to us “And I never want to see you in here again!!” Everyone laughed.
Maybe more couples should get married during a recess in a divorce hearing in court!
