Today's #tbt post comes from Wednesday, May 29, 2013 from my old blog. It's one of those things that just makes you say "Where they do that at?" Read on to see what I'm talking about...
It's been a moment since I have written a Wednesday Random Ramblings post. But this morning I had the unfortunate opportunity to see a bit of news that had me shaking my head and asking "Really? So is this how it all ends?"
Weddings are supposed to be blissful, romantic, a celebration of two lives coming together as one, an agreement with God and your significant other that the "two shall become one." The reception is party time, where everyone gets their dance on, most people get their drink on, and some party folks even get their flirt on, and hook up with their new boo. After all...this is a romantic event right? There has been a time or two where I've even heard about people getting their fight on at the celebration...possibly a result of getting their drink on. But the bride and groom?
This morning Atlanta's Fox 5 News reported about the arrest of a man who decided that he would beat his bride up after the reception. I don't know about you but where I come from you're supposed to be consummating the marriage after the reception, not beating her down. However, this groom decided the way to seal their nuptials would be to drag her by her hair, punch her in the face, bite her, and then pull out her weave! Who does this? And if it isn't already bad enough? On his mug shot he's smirking and laughing!
If this isn't a sign that she needs to run for the hills I don't know what would be. Your wedding day should be one of the best days of your life and I can only imagine this poor woman's devastation, and humiliation because of his ignorance and the evil within. When a relationship gets to this level it's best to get out before you have lost all self-respect, self-esteem, belief in yourself, and possibly even your life. I just don't get it...there is nothing that she could have done that would have been worth all this. I don't care if she did the most horrific thing in the world, walk away...annul the marriage. But to beat the woman? It's inexcusable and my prayer is that she is getting out of the marriage, and will not tolerate anyone treating her like this.
On the other hand my mind cannot help but wonder is this the first time? I only say that because for him to get so out of hand and in a public place, he had to be confident he could pull that off on her. I cannot imagine that he went from a loving, attentive partner to an abusive, irate spouse all in one day. He had to have shown some violent tendencies before, whether it was through physical means or emotional abuse. I just find it challenging to see the leap in personality. And if I am correct in my assumptions then the marriage never should have taken place at all. But hopefully this will be an eye opener and she will leave all her baggage behind at the Clarke County Jail, and move forward with a better life without him. Sometimes people come to a point in their lives where they must end the marriage. The circumstances may vary as well as the length of the marriage. However, no one dreams on their wedding day they will be wondering, so is this how it all ends?
