The belief that the day you get married is the best day of your life is not dead. And the best proof of that is never-ending stories of which some were already covered by Bored Panda. From bridezillas who want everything to be perfect and then messing up the whole thing to people celebrating long and successful marriages. But what happens in between saying “I do” and the day the marriage reaches its end? Marriage is full of customs and things that say “this is how it suppose to be”. Having this in mind, Reddit’s users started sharing their Shower Thoughts on matters such as wedding, marriage and relationship. The list includes statements that people rarely think of starting from a proposal: have you ever thought that proposing reminds you of begging and that this very important decision of life should not be put forward as a surprise? Or how the wedding means more to the happy couple than the marriage itself? These and many more thoughts crossed Reddit users minds. Do you have your own experiences to share? Don’t forget to leave it in the comments!
