Question by Mary: What would you do if your fiance said his ex-girlfriends name as you exchanged your wedding vows?
I don't know if this has ever happened, but what would you do if your fiance said his ex-girlfriend's name instead of yours as you exchanged your wedding vows?

I, Henry, take thee, (your fiance says ex-girlfriend's name OR his ex-wife's name instead of yours) to be my wife.

What would you do? You are at the altar with the minister or priest and in front of all your invited relatives and friends.

Marrying in Bulgaria: The tale of a USACE employee
wedding vows said by priest

Image by USACE Europe District
Three orthodox priests blessed the marriage of Paul Farley, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District construction representative, living and working in Bulgaria, and his bride, Slavina Tyulenova Aug. 28, 2011 in the town of Melnik. The wedding day was filled with Bulgarian customs and rituals. During the ceremony, the couple took part in the lighting of candles, sipping of wine and exchange of the crowns. Each gesture symbolized the uniting of the couple under god and their commitment to one another as husband and wife. During the week preceding the wedding, Tyulenova’s mother baked a traditional loaf of marriage bread. In Bulgarian folklore, the rising of the bread represents the creation of a new family unit. During the ceremony, the homemade honey bread was broken by the mother of the groom and fed to the couple, wishing them a sweet life together. After the vows were exchanged and the couple sealed their nuptials with a kiss it was time for the reception. A ten-piece band played Bulgarian music, while guests danced the “horo”. The horo is a simple, but lively Bulgarian dance, varying slightly from region to region. Smiling and giggling, guests held hands and circled the newlyweds. Even Farley’s American friends, Rich Thomas and Mattie Jones, fellow USACE employees, were able to pick up the horo and get their groove on. While the couple opted for a traditional wedding, their meeting and courtship was quite modern, explained Farley. “We met on the internet,” he said. Soon after Farley arrived in Bulgaria to work for USACE at the Novo Selo resident office he met Tyulenova on an internet dating site. At the time, Tyulenova lived five hours away in her hometown of Sandanski. The distance did not discourage Farley. He traveled to southern Bulgaria for a face-to-face meeting with Tyulenova. “I was looking for a companion,” Farley said. He found companionship and fell in love with Tyulenova. On Aug. 28, the couple said “I do” in both Bulgarian and English. The newlyweds are settling into married life and expecting their first child, a son, in October. (Courtesy photo)

    I would be really hurt and we would have to work through it.
    I suppose it all depends on if he saw her face and called you it by accident then thats not too much of a problem but if shes in his head then thats terrible!
    Reminds me of that episode of friends when Ross says Rachel’s name instead of Emily’s wen they are getting married! CRINGE

    personally if my wife did that when we were getting married id probably stab her in the throat lol jk id take it with a grain of salt at first and afterwords talk to her about what had happened and then hope things work out. this is why you make sure your lover is over there past lovers before you take the plunge.

    Then it would be Friends episode and not reality then, huh?

    If he’s still thinking about her after several years with me, we have bigger issues than a name slip up. The only time I’ve been called another woman’s name was when I was being cheated on. If her name is that fresh on his lips, something else has been, too. Fortunately, this is not going to happen in real life.

    I’d remove myself right out the door.

    Honestly, I’d probably be a bit irritated but I’d joke and tell him he still has time to stop the wedding if he wants too.

    It’s probably an honest mistake because he’s nervous but if it’s not..then u saved yourself a whole lot of time and suffering ..and a divorce later on down the road.

    I’d stop the wedding.

    He has no recourse or reason to be saying her name.
