''Runaway Bride'' Ready to Tie the Knot
kyw1060.com ^ | 8/6/05 | unknown

Posted on 08/06/2005 3:38:07 AM PDT by beyond the sea

Word out of Duluth, Georgia is that runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks is ready to take the plunge with her fiancé, John Mason, 3½ months after wedding-day jitters prompted her to skip town and claim she was abducted.

The two have reportedly registered at Pottery Barn. The registry lists things like dining room furniture, a desk and some wine glasses, but shoppers say that's not what Wilbanks really needs:

"How about a mirror to take a look at herself?"

"A suitcase."

"A ball and chain to tie her to the room when he comes in."

"She should be registered at Athlete's Foot, right? Have sneakers!"

Wilbanks fled her fractured fairy tale wedding in April, attracting worldwide ridicule. Still, people say, they're hoping for a happy ending.

The two have reportedly registered at Pottery Barn. ---- This young lady is so "eccentric" you would think she'd be registered at "Bed Bath and Way Beyond".

At first I felt very bad for John Boy and saw his as a sympathetic figure. Now I think he's a complete Dumb***. Stay tuned for a miserable life, idiot!

And I'll kick in a 5-er for the Bud Light for anesthesia. Good luck to the happy couple!

Brings to mind an old 60's Del Shannon song:

===

As I walk along,
I wonder what went wrong,
With our love, a love that was so strong.
And as I still walk on,
I think of the things we've done
Together, a-while our hearts were young.

I'm a-walkin' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' you were here by me,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder,
Why,
Why, why, why, why, why she ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where she will stay-ay,
My little runaway,
Run, run, run, run, runaway.


I'm a-walkin' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' you were here by me,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder,
Why,
Why, why, why, why, why she ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where she will stay-ay,
My little runaway,
Run, run, run, run, runaway.
Run, run, run, run, runaway.
Run, run, run, run, runaway.

--Del Shannon, Runaway

This guy is galactic size idiot. Cheaters never stop cheating and women of dubious morality never change. They will continue to cheat on there husbands, write bad checks, charge huge amounts on credit cards, and yes make complete spectacle of their would be husband. A good woman is hard to find, and if you guys got one hold on to her.

I know my stepmother was that way. Marriages need a sound foundation, what kind of a foundation does this one have assuming you get this woman to the altar?

If she was serious they would elope, e.g., take him along next time.

Well, if I were a cheating lying thieving woman, the guy is just who I would pick if I needed a husband. They are like made for each other.

That said, I believe Jenn has reformed. I believe the hulk adores her lying little self. And I think they will live happily ever after with the occasional trip to the marriage counselor and brief stays at the local asylum.

I mean, don't yall know! Marriage is not perfect bliss!

Yes, she admitted that she'd had them done. She also had some sort of procedure done on her face, hence, the "bug eye" look.

LOL,,the first dance song for sure.

I love this story. I loved it even when I knew Jenn was more seriously deranged than just a nervous bride. I love it that they are getting married and are going to have little bug eyed hulky babies.

Even nutty law breaking lying girls and dumb guys need husbands and wives. I mean, is marriage reserved for the perfect or nearly so. Don't yall really believe the mperfect need it too. It is sort of like religion. Are only the really good people allowed in Church or are sinners, bad sinners, needed at church.

I wish these two well and really hope they make it.

Which part did you hear is not true? That she's going through with the wedding, or that she's registered and people are leaving their own gift suggestions?

LOL. That's how my wife and I did it 32 years ago. Her father was happy at avoiding all the costs of the wedding having had five girls........ but ........... mom-in-law wasn't too thrilled.

Her eyes looked perfectly normal in a picture that I have seen of her when she was a little younger .............say about 16. She was adorable............ a very sweet and curious face. She should have left her face alone!

I think she may get herself together. The love of a dedicated, loving husband, and a fair dose of firmness along the line can do wonders. I hope it works for them.

Yeh, they are. They looked fine when she was walking to or from court one day in a nice tight white t-shirt and a blue unbuttoned button-down sweater that she was quite careful to wear just so.......... it was hanging carefully to the sides of those attractive things.
