Weddings ceremonies are the best hunting grounds for prospective future spouses. At weddings there are lots of like-minded persons converged in one gaily gathering to aspire for their own similar moments, hopeful of celebrating future successes or glutting over past misadventures in the marriage enterprise. It is mainly the latter, but it doesn’t show through all the exotic attires and deceptive cheery faces worn. There are lots of near misses in these mostly elusive searches for the perfect matrimony and the countless losers always out number the winners.

So at weddings most of the well wishers carry fake smiles that do not paint the reality in their hearts on the picture on their glowing faces. Yet those who either had it bad before or not, will try again to mislead yet another possible victim of another lingering incompatible union and lure them into yet another hopeful pathetic try.

  1. Excellent! I love the irony, the narrative voice making a smooth transition from apparently objective reporting to the final ironic statement about “yet another pathetic try.” Of course, a big part of the irony here is that the whole piece is narrated by a character who is totally subjective, and — it seems — one of the “losers who outnumber the winners.” Very good use of characterization, narrative voice, and irony.
