The Wedding Singer Movie: How To Save A Failing Relationship?

Tuesday, January 3, 2017
(*Warning for possible spoilers for The Wedding Singer 1998 American romantic comedy film)

The Wedding Singer is about Robbie Hart (played by Adam Sandler) whose fiancée breaks his heart, but he is able to recover with the help of a special someone.

Dumped on the day of your own wedding

Robbie, the title character, is really looking forward to his upcoming wedding with his fiancée, Linda (played by Angela Featherstone).

Who would have thought that the bride wouldn’t show up at her own wedding and would actually leave the groom waiting and looking like a fool at his own wedding?

What Robbie had to experience was really terrible and it can really make the audience start to dislike Linda even before they meet her because of what she did.

Don’t keep relationship problems to yourself

If she was having second thoughts about marrying the wedding singer, if she didn’t want to marry him anymore, then she could have at least told him before the wedding so Robbie doesn’t have to face or endure the agony of having to wait for someone who will never show up and having everyone see what happened to him.

What was so wrong with informing Robbie about this so he’s not left waiting and looking like a fool on his own wedding day?

It’s okay to worry about your own wedding

Linda’s feelings of being scared and apprehensive about her own wedding may be understandable since this is a life-changing moment.

But, what can be hard to understand is how she could fail to tell Robbie about this so they could talk things over or even just postpone the wedding for now until Linda is ready to tie the knot.

Couples should talk to each other

Communication is very important in a relationship. If the two had just talked things over and shared their feelings and worries and concerns with each other, then maybe they could have fixed things and been able to salvage their relationship. What do you think?
