Seminary or Starbucks

My best friend from high school called me last night. Some people from our high school are trying to get together and plan a reunion. She doesn't want to help plan it, but couldn't think fast enough to get out of the meeting on Thursday. TheCount was on the phone with the dude right when she called me so I was like, oh well, TheCount just got us out of it! I haven't talked to my friend since 2 days before my wedding. Why? She was supposed to do my makeup, it looked horrible at our rehersal dinner trial run and she wanted to charge me way too  much. We told her never mind, my cousin was going to do it because we didn't have any more money. She never showed up to the wedding. Last night we did our catching up conversation. I asked how her husband was doing...
Background: December 2007, I was graduating from college so I called to invite her over for my graduation/Christmas celebration. She was like sure, and told me she was dating a new guy. It shocked me because I thought she was still dating her college boyfriend (of about 3 or 4 years). She was like, no. I asked why. She told me while she was working at Mac this dude that worked at the Starbucks came up to her and they began talking (this was November). She told him that she had a boyfriend but that they could be friends. Within 2 weeks of meeting, he convinced her that her boyfriend wasn't serious about marrying her (even though he said they would as soon as he got out of seminary school) and that she should be with him instead. Ok, whatever floats your boat. He was in his 30's with a 7 year old daughter, she was 22. Anyway, I talked to him on the phone, he sounded a bit to effeminate for my liking, but considering she had dated 2 dudes that turned out to be gay before, I guess she likes her dudes a bit softer. Anyway, they never showed up for my graduation celebration, but it was cool. In February 2008 (3 months after meeting dude) I see on Facebook that she is married. So I call her and I'm like, excuse me, what's going on? She tells me that on Valentine's day they decided to sneak off and get married. I find out that I'm not the only one mad at her,  her parents were livid. They were crying and stuff because it's just not wise to meet and marry somebody in 3 months. You have to date them long enough to let the crazy come out so you can make sure you can tolerate it! Come on, I hid my crazy from TheCount for over a year! Ever the supportive friend, I was like, ok, what's done is done, I wish y'all the best. The last time I talked to her, October 2008, they were doing well. When I talked to her last night, I find out that they are divorcing. Why? Cuz he's crazy! He is controlling (duhhh, he convinced you to leave your long term boyfriend after knowing him for 2 weeks) and won't let her do what she wants (duhhh, you were going to move to Ohio, until you met him and he said don't). And you silly behind snuck off and married him! If you have to sneak, you shouldn't be doing it. She makes me so mad, lol. So she's back at home with her parent's now. I'm going to have to make a point to talk to her more often now because she is too smart to act this dumb.
