Groom arrives in church and watches as his bride marries another man

Carol and I have been dreaming about our wedding for a long time and planning how beautiful it would be. But our wedding day turned out to be an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE FOR ME. First I found out that my family members would not be able to make it to the ceremony. Because of this, I was late to my own wedding. But the final horror was when I entered the church and saw my beloved fiancée putting on the ring and saying her vows to another man. Her mom saw me and told me to get out of there. That day played on repeat in my head for years, until one day I saw Carol again. My story is in the comments below.


Alvin was over the moon to finally be marrying Carol, the love of his life. He was aware her parents weren’t fond of him because they believed he wasn’t the right man for her, but the two were soulmates and wouldn’t let anyone stand between them, or at least they thought so.

On the day of their wedding Alvin was running a bit late because he had received the news that no one from his family would be attending the wedding, and somehow, he lost himself in the sadness of that thought.

When he finally arrived at the church, he stumbled upon a sight that turned his life upside down. Carol was marrying another man. He couldn’t believe his eyes and froze for a second. As he was gathering the strength to shout, Carol’s mother, Andrea, stood in front of him and punched him in the chest.

“Alvin, leave now. This is what’s best for Carol. She deserves a better life than what you can give her, and that man is perfect for her. Go away and never come back,” Andrea stated, gesturing with her finger for him to leave entirely.


He wanted to protest, but at that moment, he saw Carol putting a ring on the man’s finger.

Devastated and shocked, Alvin left the church and got inside his car. He couldn’t help but wonder how could Carol do such a thing.

Years passed by and Alvin moved on with his life, but he never forgot Carol.

One day, he decided to learn if Carol had a good life without him and whether she had everything the two dreamed of having, a beautiful family, many children, and a nice house.

All he needed in order to learn all that was a single search on Facebook.

He found her profile and went through her photos. She had plenty of photos from a girl, who was probably her daughter, some photos of her parents, but not a single photo of her husband. Could she be divorced, Alvin kept asking himself.

In order to clear his doubts, he decided to message Carol. To his surprise, she responded right away and they decided to meet at the park near her home.


The meeting brought back many memories. Seeing Carol after so much time was a reminder for Alvin that he had never forgot her. He loved her as he had all those years ago despite the fact she had left him for another man on their wedding day.

“Do you want to sit down?” he finally asked when she arrived, and she nodded eagerly. “Ok. I guess we should get down to brass tacks. I wanted to meet you because I wanted to find out what happened with us in the past.”

“What do you mean?” she turned to him with a frown.

“Well, when I got to the church, you were marrying someone else,” Alvin replied, looking at her weirdly. “Why did you do that?”

“You got to the church?” Carol asked in confusion.

Alvin shook his head as he was now getting confused too. “What are you talking about? Of course, I got to the church. It was our wedding. I was running a little late, but I got there, and you were exchanging rings with another man.”


“You… you were there?” Carol kept repeating over and over again.

“What are you saying, Carol?”

“I thought you had left me forever!” she wailed, and tears gathered in her eyes.

“What?” he said in dismay.

“My mom told me you had run away, and no one could find you. I was so angry… I couldn’t think. I was heartbroken too, and when she suggested marrying Colin…. I just jumped on it. I didn’t want to suffer the humiliation of being left at the altar,” she explained through small sobs.

“That makes no sense, Carol!” he yelled at her, anger rising once again. “Why didn’t you try to call me? I would’ve explained that I was running late because I had just gotten a message that no one in my family was coming.”

At that moment, Carol placed her head between her hands and couldn’t stop tears from running down her face.


Once she pulled herself together she explained that her marriage only lasted for a year and that she had a 10-year-old girl named Veronica. Her ex-husband remarried but they were co-parenting.

They ended their meeting agreeing to see each other again.

Furious, Carol went home and had a massive fight with her parents. They kept asking for her forgiveness and although she forgave them, Carol moved out of their home a week later.

She and Alvin continued seeing each other and decided to continue from their they stopped years ago. Veronica accepted Alvin as her stepfather and even helped him propose to her mom and was a maid of honor at their wedding.

This story is a reminder that true love always finds the way.
