It was reported on September 23rd of 1962 that a 26-year-old church organist from Stanley Common, England had decided to cancel her wedding.

Sheila Roe called off the nuptials because her husband-to-be, 22-year-old David Graham Hardy, gambled away all of his money. 

“He lost the very last of it this week – the day before we were going to be married.”

The name of the horse that he placed his last bet on was – get this – the appropriately named Wedding Expenses.
