The groom had played a video depicting the bride having an affair with the best man. All eyes turned towards the bride after the video finished. The guests expected her to speak up.
The sound of the bride's footsteps broke the silence as she rushed towards the exit. A few seconds later, the best man stood up to follow her, after which the groom's father "punched him out."
Everyone was shocked to see the video, and most of the guests started to leave. Just then, the bride's father apologized to the groom and asked everyone to stay back and enjoy themselves.

Meanwhile, the photographer approached the groom and asked him why he invited the guests when he knew the bride was cheating on him.
The groom explained they had signed a prenup which stated that if either party is proven to have committed adultery by the time of the divorce, the offender would have to pay $15,000 to the other party.
"People aren't making prenups like that unless they already have a feeling that something is going on," Redditor orthopod stated.

The photographer revealed that the bride's father had inserted the clause in the prenup because his elder daughter's husband had cheated on her. He wanted to ensure things were still under control if the same happened with his younger daughter.
Most Redditors felt happy for the groom and believed he took his revenge in the best possible way. They were also glad the bride's father asked everyone to stay and enjoy the rest of the party.

Questions to Ponder:
Would you take revenge in the same way if you were the groom?
Some people might think the groom went overboard with his revenge since it was pretty embarrassing for the bride. However, other people like the groom might feel this was the right way, thinking she got what she deserved. What do you think?
Do you think the groom was at fault for wasting the bride's father's money on a wedding that he knew was going to end quickly?
Since the groom had the evidence in his hands, he could have confronted the bride and called off the wedding. Instead, he allowed the wedding to continue and the bride's father to pay for it. Since the bride's father was innocent, the groom could have saved his would-be father-in-law the expense of a wedding that was bound to end quickly. What do you think?
