Lesley Amos, a 52-year-old groom recently had his wedding disrupted by the family of his previous wife.
The groom who was set to marry a local nurse Mavis, had kids from a prior marriage with a lady named Dorothy.
However, his mistake of not giving his first wife a token of divorce gave her and her family incentive to storm his wedding.
He had to leave his guests for almost three hours to talk to policemen when his former in-laws crashed the wedding venue, threatening to stop the ceremony.
Dorothy’s family showed the officiating minister the bride price list which Lesley confirmed as true, while insisting that he was angered by Dorothy’s character which forced him to arrange to marry Mavis secretly.
“We are here to prove that you are still our son in-law because you never gave Dorothy a token of divorce and you have kids with my daughter,” said Dorothy’s mother, fuming.
Lesley, whose mother was not part of the guests, blamed his sisters Moleen and Lynet for not giving the token of divorce to his first wife.
“My sisters advised me not to give Dorothy a token of divorce, saying there was no need and that I should go ahead with my plans to marry Mavis.
“I went to court on February 3 and tied the knot,” said Lesley.
