23 reasons why a marriage was annulled

“First of all, if you’ve never been to a Jewish wedding, the way it goes is they have the reception first (with the bride and groom in separate rooms), then the ceremony, then the family leaves to sit photos while the guests sit down to eat, then the bride and groom enter and the dancing begins.Between the ceremony and the photos, however, is this which is called Yichud, which roughly means “isolation together” – the bride and groom lock themselves in a room and are observed by two reliable witnesses outside the door for staying there long enough for consummating the marriage (although no one actually does it there: it’s considered downgraded).”

“After the Yichud, the bride came out and announced, ‘Sorry everyone, the wedding is off. We’re getting a divorce and we’re returning all the gifts… except for the bedroom, where I caught my new husband trying it out with my sister last week.

So what makes this remarkable? Well, think about it. She knew about the episode before the wedding. Why did she do it? Because according to Jewish law, if you have ever been married to a woman, even after getting divorced, you are not allowed to marry her sister anytime until your first wife has died. By going through with the ceremony, she actually prevented her sister from ever being able to reunite with her future ex.”
