Wedding foiled by scream

About a year ago I posted about a wedding at which the bridegroom dropped dead of a heart attack right after saying "I do." I thought that had to qualify as one of the worst weddings ever, but this one is pretty bad also. As reported in the Chicago Tribune - Sep 21, 1907.

"Put him on an outgoing train" Are you kidding me?!? I wonder if he ended up hurting or killing her later. Sad how these things are mishandled and it still goes on today.

Hmmm ... Most long time married men would be more likely to threaten their wives with a gun to make them LEAVE !! (IMHO) hmmm

"he had a bad habit and she discarded him" What'ta'ya think, booze? loose women? nose pickin'? or..... GASP he'd want to impose his marital rights nightly?

Many years ago, on a hot Saturday afternoon, we stopped at a small town bar to pick up some beer. Walking to the door, we saw a woman in a bridal dress sitting alone in the back seat of a car. Inside the bar was the rest of the wedding party; and they had been partying for a while.

... I'll let you make your own assumptions.
