Runaway Bride

I don’t know all the details about this young woman from Georgia who fabricated her abduction to elude her massive wedding. I do have a few thoughts on the matter however.

You’d think that with what appears to be a loving and supporting family she would have had someone to turn to in her time of need. I mean who has 14 bridesmaids? At least one or two of them had to be close friends, don’t you think?

I find it quite sad that her only option was to concoct the story. I do hope that when she gets some type of punishment that the authorities also add therapy to her sentence. I truly believe she needs it.

I don't know all the details either and have too much to do to look them up. But I'll say this, while it's sad she didn't have anyone to turn to, I'm not sure she actually made up a story, did she? I mean, she went missing and then the press was full of that story and her family was all "she would never just run away, etc..."
So, either she never said she was kidnapped (it was assumed) OR she was so embarrassed, understandably so, when she re-emerged that she went along with the kidnap story for a bit. anyway, who knows.
