Instead of being a man and saying "Hey I'm not comfortable getting married to you, maybe we should call this off," this guy faked his own death and did nothing to cover his tracks!
We've all been there - the relationship isn't working out, but you just can't find the nerve to break up. It's not easy. Breaking up with someone and firing someone are probably the two most dreaded conversations a person can have. But there's no way out of it - you have to steel your nerve and go in head first. Unless you happen to be Tucker Blandford, in which case you can just fake your own death.
Blandford wanted to call off his engagement to British fiancee Alex Lanchester. The two had met in college in Connecticut when Lanchester was studying in the States for a year. They got engaged last year before Lanchester returned home at the end of semester, and their plan was to get married in Connecticut last week.
Apparently getting cold feet and unable to face the conversation himself, Tucker decided to fake his own death to get out of the engagement. Where it gets really sociopathic, however, is that he called Lanchester himself, assuming a fake voice and pretending to be his father, to tell his fiancee that he was dead.
Understandably, she freaked out. She then called Tucker's mother to give condolences and was doubly shocked to learn that she had no idea what Alex was talking about and that Tucker was indeed alive and well. She was triply shocked to learn that Tucker's mom had no idea they were engaged.
WTF dude, she lives half a world away. Block her number, or be a man and tell her you don't want to get married.
Poses a great question though, ladies. Would you rather have a guy break it off before the wedding, leave you at the altar, or fake his own death to get out of marriage?
