VIENNA, Austria - Wedding jokes aren't always funny. When a bride in Austria jokingly answered "no" instead of "yes" when asked if she wanted to marry her husband-to-be, the official performing the civil wedding promptly broke off the ceremony.
Not even the bride's sobs could reverse the decision and the couple had to wait two and a half months before they could give it another — successful — try, the Austrian newspaper Oberoesterreichischen Nachrichten reported Friday.
Officials at the registry office in the city of Steyr where the mishap occurred declined to comment directly but noted the incident was highly unusual, according to the newspaper.
What kind of awful, horrible person must that official have been to break the wedding off like that? She said she was joking. She then broke into hysterics when he wouldn't do the ceremony. And to make them wait another two+ months? What a ridiculous thing.
Get a sense of humor, jerk!
