11 Movie Marriages That Will Make You Never Want To Get Married

6. My Big Fat Greek Wedding

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Family


I, too, have a giant family who would drive me insane the entire time I was planning my wedding. No, please no.

7. The Graduate

The Graduate Laughing


Hey, honey! Want to spend a lot of time, money, and effort planning a wedding and just nearly going through with it? And, here’s where things get really fun: right before we say “I do,” how about you spice things up by leaving me at the altar and running away with someone else? Sound a-okay to you?

8. Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids Smile


One curveball that lots of brides-to-be probably don’t anticipate is their best friend losing her mind (and making you lose yours) because you’re ignoring her. Because you are busy planning your wedding.

9. The Wedding Planner

The Wedding Planner Timing


You mean to tell me that I could hire a person to help me plan the biggest (see: most expensive) day of my life and she could swindle me out of a husband? That hardly seems like a thing I’m interested in having happen to me.

10. Blue Valentine

Blue Valentine Hugging


Nooo, a marriage that deteriorates for no reason other than that the two people in it have grown apart. As people do often, because time is a ruthless mistress who does not give a damn. This movie is actually the worst kind of discouragement because it’s basically unavoidable.

11Mrs. Doubtfire

Mrs. Doubtfire Middle Finger


A little-known fact about this movie is that Robin Williams’ character, Daniel, is all the way out of his mind. Like, I get that he loves the teen girl, the boy with the mullet and the little one with bangs, but we can all agree that he has the problem-solving skills of an insane person. And what if I end up married to a person like him?! Talk about risky business.

    Even The Notebook, which is supposed to be all romantic and shiz, actually turns me off of marriage. Like, you can be the strikingly handsome business man and your fiance will run away for a shaggy bearded man who I’m pretty sure is unemployed!

      Looks like we all need to start swinging from ferris wheels in oddly-fitting pants to guarantee that we’re winners in the game of movie love.

      We need to make plans to head to Coney Island stat.
