Two very different milestones in life: weddings and funerals.

They don't intersect much... and you don't want to confuse one for the other.


u/Abre724 asked:

What's something you can say at a wedding but not at a funeral?

Here were some of those answers.

It Does Happen

Let's do a silly photo this time

Irish funerals. Sombre ceremony, calm for the most part, completely silent except for the responses during mass and some crying. Then off to the pub. Massive piss up, celebration of the persons life. Many silly pictures can and probably will be taken.

Finally! I know this is the happy ending we all wanted.

Doesn't she look lovely in that dress?

Wink

That's going to be you one day.

I feel like you can absolutely say that someday you will die, at a funeral.

Like when you are single at a wedding and your aunts and uncles say: You're next

At funerals I look at them and say: You're next, with a wink.

An Open Season

"This is the happiest day of my life."

Glittering-Inside

While you may be joking, that is one of the requests I've made too my wife for my funeral. Open bar, open ice cream bar, and as they lower me into the ground I want the sound of you going down the pipes in the original Super Mario bro's.

It Moved On

"I'm proud to say that I'm the one who's responsible for us being here today."

Oops

My mom once said "Congratulations" at a funeral because she didn't fully understand the language yet.

I feel like if someone says something inappropriate but obviously is struggling with the language they should get a pass and a quiet explanation later on.

Over And Over

"Maybe this time it'll work out."

I'm imagining this being said at someone's second funeral. They were supposed to be dead at the first one, but so who came back to life for a while.

I Object

If anyone objects to this union speak now or forever hold your peace.

"I object!"

Over And Over

Till death do us apart was going to be my answer, but i could see a "grieving" widow maniacally mutter that phrases as they realize they have been freed from the iron chains of matrimony.

Mainly I would in that situation. Strip iff my clothes running into the sunset, on a quest to find the moon so I can howl at it.

Just Giving It Back To You Dude

i remember being at my distant cousin's wedding and an old man walked up to me and said "that'll be you one day". a couple months later one of my aunts sadly passed away, and at her funeral i saw that same old man. i walked up to him and said the same thing. apparently that's not a good thing to do?

You know what?

I genuinely like being an adult. I don't exactly like paying bills (who does, right?) but it's nice to know that I have my independence and that there is no one else impeding on my time. When I was a kid, I was very annoyed with the rituals of life, like going to school and seeing the same terrible people each day. Being out and about in the world, being free of these things, has been a game-changer.

But there are things you're never really prepared for, such as the fact that there's always something to do.

We heard more after Redditor Bootyshortsforcorgis asked the online community,

"Adults of Reddit, what part of being an adult caught you completely off guard because no one talks about it?"

What if? That could happen. You never know. All thoughts that muddle the mind. It is unhealthy to live life in a vacuum of despair and scare but really... you do never know. And anything can happen.

So! How to proceed. First we must figure out are you scared or cautious? And are those messages getting confused? They are important questions.

It's natural to be concerned in life, and it's smart to be ready, but living in fear is no good. For instance, serial killers exist. In fact several are reading this now. That can't stop us from going outside. Can it?

Redditor u/IgnoreAndScroll404 wanted to chat about all the things that leave us shooketh in life, because maybe, you never know. They asked:

What unlikely event are you terrified will happen to you?

Capitalism wants to push its workers to work for ultimate productivity--even if that comes at the expense of other things. A worker's well-being has been placed second to their productivity in America for too long. That time is changing now.

Workers are no longer willing to be completely mowed down for a paycheck. Something's gotta give--and either it's the money or the job. And more people are willing to stand up for themselves.
