One of the happiest moments in a young couple’s life is when they get to see their engagement announcement in the local papers. That thrill can be somewhat diminished if they have an unfortunate combination of names. But you have to admit they are good for a laugh.
It takes a lot to make a marriage work—and among the many obstacles that can sometimes stand in the way of love, some couples have to battle incompatible names from the get go.
Newspaper clippings reveal some of the most awkward pairings to have ever appeared in wedding and engagement announcements, often making for some very rude headlines.
As seen in the archives, Mrs. Moore once tied the knot with Mr. Bacon during a ceremony in North Carolina, while Mrs. Stolen married Mr. Ford.
These pairings, however, almost pale in comparison next to the ‘Golden-Showers’ and ‘Busch-Graber’ of the world.
