Bachelor and Bachelorette Party Misadventures That Made People Reconsider Getting Married
Across generations, the reasons why people marry have changed. For members of the Silent Generation (just before the Baby Boomers), for example, remaining unmarried was embarrassing. Marriage, therefore, was a necessity, and they committed themselves at a young age. By contrast, younger generational cohorts may go into matrimony for financial reasons, love, sex, and sometimes even simple convenience.

A Bachelorette at Daytime
A Reddit user confesses that this was the worst idea for a bachelorette party she’d ever witnessed, and it included the bridesmaids’ scavenger hunting for the event in the mall. It was like shopping for family and friends during Christmastime, only they were the only ones going mad.

A Strange Case of Confused Arousal
This happens to most people at least once or twice in our lifetimes – you wake up early in the morning not knowing where you are. It’s as if life had just begun at that very moment, and you re-experience infancy. That’s what this person’s great uncle thought the morning after his bachelor party. The confusion only grew when he discovered that the people around him spoke an unfamiliar language.

Can you imagine waking up the morning after what started as a simple party among close friends that eventually turned into a drunken spree? You immediately check your phone for drunk texts and to remember what happened last night. How on earth did you get home, and why do you have a bump on your head?
Jam Packed Party Full of Strangers
Nothing beats hanging out with old friends, especially the ones you haven’t seen in a long time. But, it comes with the realization that despite the long span of not seeing each other, nothing much has changed between you. Spike that up with a few drinks (this incident involved a lot of them), and things can go nuts.
A Violent Affair
In a celebration arranged for a man who is about to marry, the least the guests can do is let him enjoy being single one last time. He is about to pass a point of no return, filled with endless responsibilities and duties up to the neck, so let him have some fun – so long as it is relatively innocent!

The Practical Side of Marriage
It’s crucial to account for the practical aspect of marital union. To look at relationships through the eyes of a helpless romantic, with recurring themes common to sentimental fiction, will only lead to a rude awakening down the track.

Hen Party Away from Home
If you’ve spent most of your life in your hometown, it would be nice to hop on a mini cruise and enjoy a multi-state bachelorette party. Unfortunately, that can be quite a pricey plan. Perhaps the second best option would be to go on a road trip and party in a new place.
Late for Work
For some reason, people get jittery when they’re about to get married. We become irrationally paranoid. “What ifs” start to boggle the mind, even if there’s no indication that something terrible could happen to ruin the wedding.

Don’t Text When You’re Angry
Bad things happen to everyone from time to time. It’s how people react to adversity that matters. This groom might have overreacted to the news of his fiancee’s cheating during her bachelorette party. Instead of delving into the heart of the matter to clear it up and let things settle down, he made a preemptive broadcast to the world, which only gave people fodder for gossip.
Taking it all back must have been a difficult and awkward thing to do. Imagine if an addendum of angry texts came along with the groom’s cancellation advisory. Saying “I do” to her on their wedding day would undoubtedly be a tough pill to swallow before such a vividly enlightened audience.
