They didn't really get married, now what UPDATE POST 84, and 234 (page 16)

<< < (2/55) > >>

You don't owe them anything.  Send your regrets and reduce them to Nodding Acquaintances.

Are they SURE they're not married? I don't want to get into legalities, but in some places a license and a ceremony are not required.

I would certainly send my regrets, and if they ask why, tell them. If not, then I think just distancing yourself is enough.

OP here, yes I am sure they are not married and no common law marriage where they live.

I assume you had reasons to feel so close and so fond of them as to be in their wedding, so for the sake of that friendship I might merely reduce them to the status of Nodding Acquaintence, rather than They Who No Longer Cast a Shadow, but it's a tough call.

Definitely would not attend any sham anniversary party, or any other invites.

This. And it wouldn't matter to me if they are considered married now. They went to a lot of trouble, and put a lot of other people to a lot of trouble, for a lie.

Out of curiosity, I would love to know what the paperwork was they signed.  Unless it was a traditional ketubah, that is taking it pretty far to deceive people.
