  • Shame on all of you. 

    Delegitimizating a union between two people for the fun of it, and harassing another human being (a stranger!). I would love to see a poll of who is still “married” 50 years from now. But since the Establishment doesn’t take into account happiness—only “marriage”— you are bound to be okay (by law!). 

    Remember that another human being is behind this screen. One with a pulse, a family, and an image of themselves and the world. Don’t taint it with your alarming lack of compassion and empathy. 
    you seem to be the only one here with their head on straight!! All I saw here was a bunch of bullies who take so much pride in being married I can imagine it being their only life goal. Not everybody wants the same thing, she said multiple times that she has all the protection she needs to live out her life, even if they should split. Everybody here is also acting like if at any point they wanted to make the switch from the illegal bond to legal, they couldn't just go to city hall and do so. Literally, almost everybody in here tried to delegitimize their union, some even going as far as telling her what she could and could not wear, and another spoke up how they would "resent" being invited to such an event because it comes off as an "ego-fest." What's confusing for me is, is the sole purpose of attending a wedding not to celebrate the love and unity of two souls? how could you resent that? Why did she feel entitled to know someone's marital status as a taxpaying citizen? shut the hell up, your ego is larger than you!

    @knottiec9020e22781d5ee8 this thread is  nearly 3 years old.  The original poster is no longer a member on The Knot.    

    Let that be your first lesson - before you post look at the dates on a thread.  If the thread is more than 6 months old since the last post it's inactive and considered a "dead" thread. 

    Secondly, this is not a matter of egos.  It's a matter of honesty.  If you present yourselves as doing something and ask people to give up their time to see you do something that isn't what it is, you're lying.   People put down lying because deceiving others is wrong.

  • Y’all all are delusional. If I want to call it a wedding.  I will do so. I can call it whatever I want to call it. None of you are paying the bill for the “wedding” and you’re not attending my event. I am!! Haha

    Who are you talking to? This thread is 3 years old. OP pretended to get married or came to their senses and didn't years ago. 

    This is the equivalent of walking into an empty room and yelling at people who moved away years ago. You sound unhinged.
