Wikihow has published a useful guide listing three ways to stop a wedding. What they don’t tell you is that it ain’t even over when it’s over. Here are two more ways to fight a wedding after the ceremony ends.
Method 4 of 3: Seek Annulment
1.Weddings can be voided even after the white veil occasion through a process called annulment. Annulments can be granted both by civil and religious authorities for a variety of reasons. The most common is non-consummation.
2. Prevent Consummation: In order to prevent the couple from consummating the marriage, you will have to move quickly. Organizing a shivareea mob that disrupts the couple on the wedding nightis the most common method. You will need pots, pans, and bottles (first full, then empty) along with a large crowd.
3. Prove another defect: In some jurisdictions, including the UK and certain US states, weddings can be annulled if one partner has a sexually transmitted infection at the time of the wedding. Making this claim could help dissolve the marriage but might make restoring your own relationship more difficult.
Method 5 of 3: Wait It Out
1. Wait: Thirty percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce in the first ten years. Your attempts to disrupt the wedding may help increase your loved one’s odds of having a failed marriage. If your loved one lacks a college degree or has a low income there are even higher odds that the marriage won’t last.
2. Pray: While some religious traditions still view marriage as permanent, there are signs of this changing. Catholics, for example, can pray for a continued outpouring of the spirit through its appointed vessel Cardinal Walter Kasper. Do not pray to St. Thomas More or St. John Fisher.
3. Cope: Some experts recommend that if your loved one gets a rock, you should get stoned. Another option while waiting is to read a religious text, from which many take comfort during periods of trial. Those reading the Bible should be sure to avoid passages like Matthew 19 and the accounts of John the Baptist’s beheading.
