Bride Seeks Divorce 24 Hours After Wedding Because Of Groom’s Cake Stunt

A frustrated bride is planning to divorce her husband of less than 24 hours after a stunt he pulled with the wedding cake at their reception. In its January 13 “Dear Prudence” column, a woman wrote in to say that when she agreed to marry her boyfriend in 2020, they both decided to share the wedding planning responsibilities 50/50. While she didn’t have too many requests, she did have one rule she refused to compromise on: don’t rub cake in her face during the reception. I think you can see where this is going.

  1. He didn’t exactly rub cake in her face… However, what he did was actually kinda worse. As the bride explained: “Instead, he grabbed me by the back of the head and shoved my head down into it. It was planned since the cake was DESTROYED, and he had a bunch of cupcakes as backup.” Yikes!
  2. She left the ceremony right away. Instead of causing a scene at the reception, the woman left the party right away and told him the following day that their relationship was over.
  3. People keep telling her she’s making a mistake. Many of her friends and family has said that her husband deserves a second chance. They blame her “I don’t want cake shoved in my face” stance on the fact that she got claustrophobia after getting into a car accident and say that she shouldn’t give up on him “at the first hurdle.” She feels strongly about her decision to end things and doesn’t want to go on, “but everyone is so united and confident in their assurance I am making a terrible mistake that I wonder if they are right.”
  4. Prudence actually supported the woman’s decision to leave her husband. As they pointed out, if he already has a major behavior problem, that’s not likely to get any better with time. Not only that, but her husband’s actions were kinda aggressive and he is clearly incapable of respecting her wishes or simply unwilling to. “Make a mental note about which of your loved ones don’t seem to value your happiness, and continue with your divorce,” Prudence concluded.
