When life gives you lemons.....make lemonade! What a great young lady! This just might be Devine intervention. Her Prince Charming might be just around the corner...possibly at the new job.

This was written about yesterday in a different article. Most of the comments were along the line that there will definitely be a happy day somewhere in her near future. This lady certainly has a lot of integrity and character. I hope she attends this charity event in person to see their happiness.

To her would have been husband: You lost a good one here, good luck finding someone as caring and generous as her!

I guess there still is some hope for the human race after all. A nice touch from a nice person.

This is a fantastic lady, and she should be somewhat thankful the former fiance' is gone now rather than a year or two down the road. I think he should be on the hook for some of the money she paid, but whatever happens she will have earned the respect of many people for her actions.

What a kind and generous act. She could have just paid her commitments and called it a day. Instead she was very thoughtful to give to people who would enjoy the party. I hope she finds healing in this act. I also hope she finds someone more worthy of her kindness.

It is indeed sad that the marriage will not happen. However, here's my take on the stuation from the "groom's" perspective, as I was in a similar situation many years ago. I was very unsure, but opted to go forward with the wedding. It lasted about a year. I couldn't put up the constant interference from her family, and the string of broken promises she made. Adter divorcing and re-marrying, I now regret that I didn't stop the first marriage. I'm in a much better situation now.
