Blake and Cindy’s Wedding – (I’ll let them explain.)

 10313979_641631689249203_3971830231269731335_n[1]I learned a long time ago for me not to speak on Blake and Cindy’s behalf. So here is their wedding story he wrote on Facebook: Ok, I guess I have had enough fun with this. Here is the long and short of it. Mrs. Cindy received a call from her ex-husband a couple of months ago. Most people do not even remember, but she was married for a brief time right out of high school. He was in New York City trying to get a marriage license and couldn’t, because they said he was still married in Arkansas. Computer glitch right…wrong! At the time they had been married less than a year. There were no children and no property, so he hired an attorney. You sign here.  I sign there, and it was filed with the court. The problem occurred when the judge required more information to grant the divorce. Now this is where the ball was dropped. Not real sure of the details, but after no contact for 90 days the case was dismissed. Cndy was under the impression that by signing those papers it was all said and done. A few years later we decided to marry got a license, got married, filed it and went on with life that is10365844_642343675844671_1354075103064544883_n[1] until that phone call. You see in the state of Arkansas you can only be legally married to one person and with her first marriage still binding, ours was null and void. Papers were signed and filed and a month later a divorce was granted. That was about the time I went in the hospital. Once I was back on my feet we (she) decided that today being her birthday was as fitting a day as any and off to town we went. Uncle Mayor Stewart Nelson had married us the first time 15 years ago, and we wouldn’t have dreamed of letting any anyone else do it the second time around. Married, filed at the courthouse and both at work by 9:30 made for one hell of a morning. All I can say is we all sometimes wonder , “What if I had the chance to do it over?” Well I’m proud to say we were able to definitively answer that one once and for all.Wedding 1Wedding 2
