“Things quickly turned sour when the would-be-bride arrived on Dongmen Old Street in Shenzhen wearing an ‘old face’. A heated argument between the couple ensued, to the bewilderment of onlookers.The girl then asked her boyfriend if he would love her at 70-years-old. If so, she said, then he would not mind taking the photos with her dressed accordingly, Shanghaiist reports.Witnesses say the groom demanded his girlfriend remove the makeup. When she refused, he yelled abuse, hurling his glasses onto the ground before leaving the woman crying inconsolably in the street.The woman deliberately applied the makeup to see whether her boyfriend would still be devoted to her when she grew old, she said.’He is such a philanderer and he used to have many girlfriends,’ she said.” – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2812042/So-honeymoon-happening-Groom-storms-wedding-photo-shoot-bride-look-like-old-woman-love-her.html
I was kind of disgusted when I scrolled further down and read comments by other readers of this article. Some were saying ‘good for him’ or ‘that’s what she gets she shouldn’t have disrespected him like that on their photo shoot’; mostly in favor of this ‘man’. My capacity for trying to understand why people would side with him is beyond my evolutionary scope. Your bride to be, your fiance, the girl you’ve been with for a couple years (hopefully) decides to test you to see if you would still love her when she’s 70. For me, I honestly don’t see the problem here. Personally, I would’ve loved to have put on ‘old person makeup’ also and take our wedding photos as such. Then take it off and take our actual wedding photos. What’s the big deal in doing both? Maybe I’m just a ‘go with the flow’ type guy. But this guy ‘rages’ and storms off as if she is nothing to him. Which is most likely the case since he is a ‘philanderer’ and probably doesn’t give a shit about her. Or maybe this girl has a huge misconception on what ‘love’ really is. Or maybe she’s just in it for the money. Or maybe he’s just in it because of her looks. Or maybe it was an arranged marraige. The fact of the matter is: people have forgotten what marraige truly is. It’s not about money, looks, fame. It’s not about having a ‘fairy tale’ wedding for the sake of it. It’s about devoting your time, your person, your life, your soul to one person for the rest of your life. I would love to marry a girl like that, just, you know, don’t be selfish and let me know what you plan to do so I can join you in ‘old person makeup’. I mean, we’re going to be spending the rest of our lives with each other, so why not make it fun?
