Wedding, The First Dance

Please let me introduce you to the new couple…they will be dancing their first song as husband and wife to “When You Say Nothing At All”, by Keith Whitley.

“The smile on your face let’s me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if wherever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all.”

Sounds, lovely huh?  When you don’t have to say nothing at all…when in all actuality it was the opposite. When someone is not saying nothing at all, it can also be unhealthy for a relationship.

Weddings are all about the celebration, right?  Well, there was a lot of celebrating going on that night.  Especially, when you are blindly marrying an alcoholic and you have a family member attending, that is also a raging alcoholic.  That is just a recipe for an interesting wedding reception with some embarrassing moments coming from your family side.

There was the usually cake cutting with the smashing in the face…and eye.  Then the highlight of the evening was when my alcoholic family member got to wear the  the garter belt and have it removed…I don’t need to give anymore details as it was embarrassing enough, she was acting like a horny toad!

Then after the wedding, there is all of those memorable photos, those shots that no one was aware that was being taken.  Especially, the ones that shows how slushed the alcoholics were…I think, you skip putting those photos in the wedding album.

These are the problems that you deal with when there is alcoholics involved, even if you haven’t realized you just married one.  I would discover that my alcoholic husband would “Say Nothing At All” not in a loving way.  Instead he would drown his sorrows in alcohol and not say a thing.

You’re not alone, you are loved,

The Girl that was Abandon
