I was sitting in the church waiting for the wedding to begin. The woman I was dating was the maid of honor. She came running over to get me. Turns out the best man had just recieved a phone call that his newborn son, who was in the neonatal ICU since his birth two weeks prior, had died.

I filled in as best man. I thought I did an admirable job, given that I didn't know a single person there other than the maid of honor. The mother of the bride was stressed out and kept screaming at me to do things I had no idea were my responsibility.

The marriage lasted a few months. The bride never stopped "seeing" her "other boyfriend" and her husband found out.
