Question of the Day: If you found out your fiance "hooked up" at their bachelor party, would you still marry them?
Boy, this is a loo-loo isn't it? Tough call for sure. I think it's easy to say, "No way!" "Never!" "They made their bed, they now can lie in it," etc, but it's such a personal situation and definitely depends upon the couple, the circumstance and all of the details surrounding the evening. I mean, bachelor parties are, for the love of God, meant to be filled with debauchery, over-indulgence and corruption. If you think about it, it's a "set up" for the bethrothed when a night of carousing has been planned and yet he/she is "not allowed" to parktake in the festivities.
I think its perfectly okay when a couple separates and goes off for a night of depravity with their bff's before their nuptials, so long as they agree ahead of time, what behaviors are acceptable versus not. The main question here, however is, would you go through with the wedding if your fiance breached an agreement while at their bachelor/bachelorette party. You know, weddings, with all their pomp and circumstance, sure have a way of making people very forgiving. Perhaps too much so because it's certainly easier to call of a big, long awaited "party" then it is to get divorced. But again, a traditional night off sin has to be looked at differently unless, however, the infidelity has been a recurring issue in the relationship.
