So my cousin went ahead after thinking it through for a while, and did get divorced from her husband of 12 years. Not unexpected as he's a bum, but they met in college. He had high hopes, a now useless degree + unpaid loans, etc.
Oh, ye, they was going to go off into the sunset and start a life together... them 2 college kids. When the economy tanked, so did his dreams of making it big.
She waited for him to get his career going, but her patience ran out.
College. Wow, what a waste of time and money.
So, her parents had her wedding photos all over the house, in the living room, bedroom, a VHS copy of the wedding, an album of their daughter with her husband... oh, and shots of his parents next to him, and bride's parents next to her.
The in-laws came for Thanksgivings and birthdays, and family get-togethers... a lively bunch, to say the least.
Ok, so now what? Off into the dumpster those shots go? Her mom's both parents passed away a few years back, and our family I suppose are keepers, but why keep photos of ex-husband, ex-inlaws, and so-called "friends"?
BTW, she is 35, no kids. I say about 80% of weddings I've been to in the last 20 years end in divorce, mostly due to lack of jobs, loss of $ in stocks and real estate.
