BRIDE Denise Dancer called off her wedding when she discovered her fiance had a secret lover - her teenage daughter.
Denise and sweetheart Paul Bayliss, 34, had planned to marry after 10 "blissful" years together. They named the day for a $34,000 white wedding and Denise, 37, asked Emma -- her 18-year-old daughter from a previous relationship -- to be chief bridesmaid.
But her world fell apart when she came home early and found 157cm Paul with Emma in the garden of the house they all shared in England's West Midlands.
Denise, an office supervisor, said: "I glanced through the window and saw Paul and Emma, half-naked, kissing and fondling each other."
"I stood there transfixed like a rabbit in the headlights and I was shaking.
"They hadn't seen me so I just ran out, got into my Jeep and sped off in tears. I was almost physically sick. I couldn't believe what I had seen."
Mother-of-three Denise, of Oldbury, immediately cancelled the wedding for 150 guests and a honeymoon in Mauritius -- without telling anyone.
But it was eight weeks before she could find the courage to confront the pair.
She asked them into the lounge for a chat and they eventually came clean.
Denise said: "They confessed they had been having an affair behind my back for two years."
Amazingly, Emma is now to take her mum's place -- and walk down the aisle with Paul.
They are engaged and plan to marry next March. Emma, a translator, and window maker Paul moved into a nearby flat after Denise kicked them out.
Denise told how she had already turned down two proposals from Paul before he got down on one knee and produced a diamond ring.
Denise, whose other daughter Lisa, 15, was also due to be a bridesmaid at the August wedding, said: "I am devastated. I had a blissful relationship with Paul and thought we would be together forever. But I despise him for what he's done and can't bring myself to talk to a daughter I loved.
"He made contact to say he may have made a mistake and he wants to come back. I told him he'd made his bed and had to lie on it."
Paul said: "I didn't mean to hurt Denise but things happen and now I'm with Emma. That's all there is to it."
Emma said: "I'm with Paul now but I don't want to comment."
A guy who'd engage in an immoral relationship engaged in an immoral relationship.
Who could have predicted that?
Man, very troubling!
Next week, on .... As The Stomach Turns!
Please. The "bride" ignored the signs. "Groom" was a loser and she failed to see the red flags.
She and her daughter need some counseling to heal the wounds.
Groomie boy should HIT THE ROAD, Jack, and don't ya come back no mo', no mo'!
Size doesn't matter, size doesn't matter.....
What, I wonder, is the collective IQ of those involved.
Let's think about this Rhodes Scholar woman, Denise. 37 years old, 3 kids, one of them being from a "previous relationship" (one night stand, maybe?), and she has the audacity to have a "white wedding". She probably knew all along that her scuzzy lover was screwing her daughter, she just didn't want to admit to herself. If she really didn't know, this woman must have an IQ of 3 to not see the signs.
I don't feel sorry for this tart one little bit. She's also teaching her kids to be tarts. She has no one to blame but herself.
Shouldn't that be 157mm? Oh wait! Just what are they describing?
If she were any kind of liberal at all it would have
been a triple wedding.
The article didn't say whether or not this was 'in the happy state'...
I predict mother-in-law problems in the future.
"Tomorrow on Maury - Paul and Denise were ready to be married, until Denise caught her filandering fiancee in the arms of another woman - her daughter! Next on Maury!"
This is very unusual for the UK. Unusual that a woman would really get her knickers in a knot just because her bloke was boffing her daughter. Crikey, indeed.
Not to mention the "bride" had a child of 18, she now being 37, from a prior "relationship". I would say they deserve each other.
No kidding... Even marriage of mother and daughter to the same man is expressly forbidden in the Bible.
More likely, Jerry Springer.
quite=quiet My bad, Sorry
ROFL. Gee, you think?
