He's asking your opinion on throwing away the old wedding photos. Comprehension is fundamental.

Thanks. Perhaps readers should read the entire post before posting a reply.

Vote: Keep or trash the wedding photos and videos?

Not to mention the wasted money on the divorce itself, lawyers, property, debts. Ifcourse, the now happily divorced cousin shall be removing her husband's name from all her IDs, forms, bank accounts, etc.

for as long as we both shall live." went right over her head during the ceremony.

As it does for %52 of married folks in America.

It would be interesting if her parents still keep all the wedding shots around the house.

The thing is who here cares what someone else chooses to do in their life?

Anyone in this position will make a personal decision based on their own experiences etc. Who are we to judge what is right or wrong for each individual?

Now if your are meaning to ask what others would do if they got divorced you could have just said... "If you got divorced would you keep or destroy your wedding photos?" and attached a poll. Instead there was a huge amount of totally irrelevant stuff.

I get it though. Every post or topic I've ever seen you post is geared to try and create heated argument and debate.

odd thread. I'd never hang up wedding photos, but if I did I'd take them down now, paint over them or throw them out, but I'd keep album and video for sure, actually would see to get the later digitized. Can't imagine she'd like to visit her folks if wedding photos decorate the halls. But throwing out everything would be shortsighted IMO. I still have photos of me with long hair and ripped jeans around somewhere, LOL

Heck. I would probably find a way to adhere them to a dartboard and give them to her as a Christmas present. Lots of use for divorced wedding photos.

I've heard of separation ceremonies, but yet to be asked to photograph one. "now lets get both families together for a nice shot"

I dunno... I've been married for 15 years, not all of them easy.. should I end up that route? I might have an initial reaction to go hell bent on destroying the photos... but I'm pretty sure I'd regret it later on. There's still memories there, and where we've been makes us who we are.

I like what was said by someone above: it was part of her life. Keep the photos... for better or worse, at least represent a moment in time when they were all happy. Isn't it better to hold onto to those moments for what they were worth, even if they conjure up bad memories?

To everyone else who judged the bride here - let's remember we're getting a 3rd person account of what happened? There's probably lot more going on causing this divorce than just financial issues. Financial stress can bring out the worst in people and create a permanent change in them - we don't know this couple and we shouldn't comment.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Really though, this thread was brought up to just stir up controversy. Do you really think the bride in this case is asking Gomar what a photographer forum thinks she should do with her photos?

Of course it wasn't. It was a Gomar post. We all know what they are all about.
