This is what happened to a woman named Casey, who handled the nightmare scenario in the fiercest way possible. According to her essay, she had been sure that her fiancé, whom she had been dating for six years, was the love of her life.
“I felt he was The One instantly. Our families became friends, our lives were entwined, and I believed we’d live happily ever after,” she wrote.
Then, on the eve of her D-day, she was sitting in a hotel room with friends when she got the message that changed everything. An unknown number had sent her selfies of Alex (her fiancée, name changed) with another girl, along with screenshots of some of the texts he had sent her earlier, ending with a simple question: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?”
The contents of the messages were disgusting:
“This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game.”
“Your body is [so] incredible. And [boy] do you know how to use it. I wish my Girl Friend had half the skills you do.”
“I miss you so much. I can’t stop thinking about…you. I’ve never had this kind of connection before.”
Casey burst into tears.
“Every word like a dagger in my heart,” the texts show.
Her friends were enraged and insisted that she call her cheating would be husband immediately to tell him the marriage was off, but she was so stunned and puzzled she just couldn’t bring herself to do it. Plus, what about all of those people who had traveled to attend a marriage that was only hours away?
Casey didn’t sleep all night, but by the morning, she had made a hard conclusion about just what she was going to do on her wedding day.
She walked down the aisle in her bridal gown, and when it came time for them to do her vows, she bowed to all of their friends and family members and said, “There will be no marriage today. It seems Alex is not who I thought he was.”
Then she took out her mobile phone and read the messages that he had sent this other girl out loud.
“With each word, more color left Alex’s face,” she wrote.
Crying, she looked him in the eyes, but said nothing. Instead, he simply stomped out of the church as his family looked on, shocked.
AS the article says, she turned to her guests for the marriage once more and said, “I love all of you and as horrible as this is I’m glad you all are here. There will not be a marriage reception today, but instead, there will be a carnival of honesty, finding true love and following your heart even when it hurts.”
All we can say is: Wow J.
