The Internet is seeing red over the story of a best man who proposed to his girlfriend during his best friend’s wedding, hijacking the day. The recent bride wrote to Slate advice columnist “Dear Prudence” about what happened, saying her husband’s best friend “John” who was the best man at their wedding and officiated at the service, proposed to his girlfriend, “Jane” and announced that she was pregnant during the actual wedding ceremony. The bride writes, “I couldn’t even hear the vows my husband wrote or the rest of the ceremony over the noise of Jane’s happy sobs, her very surprised family who were also guests, and people seated nearby who were congratulating her. Even the videographer cut to her frequently during the ceremony and you can’t hear anything over the chatter. When John gave his toast, he apologized for being caught up in the moment, and then proceeded to talk about he and Jane’s future with nary a mention of us. During the reception John and Jane became the primary focus of our guests. John even went out of his way to ask the band to play a special dance for just him and Jane on the dance floor.” The bride said she’s still angry weeks later, and her husband hasn’t spoken to his friend since the wedding. She said, “My husband has joked that he’ll resume his friendship when John and Jane give him a $40,000 check for “their half of the wedding”. She asked Prudence if they should end the friendship, and while the columnist was on their side, calling what John did “selfish and self-absorbed”, she said it wasn’t worth throwing away the long friendship without at least talking to John first about what happened.
