Bride upset after wedding officiant proposes to girlfriend during ceremony

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania -- It's a bombshell scenario that led one pretty angry newlywed to write into an advice column.

What would you do if your best man proposed to his girlfriend - during your own wedding ceremony?

The new bride in this twisted ordeal wrote into Dear Prudence on explaining how their best man completely stole their moment. That best man, referred to only as John, was also the officiant.

The bride explained that with the mic in hand during the vows, he proposed to his own girlfriend, Jane, whom he also announced is pregnant.

She said everyone cheered, people cried and the videographer recorded the moment.

But then she asked: "Do you think John's behavior warrants the end of a long-term friendship, or are we angry over nothing?"

Prudence's answer? "I think it merits a fight! In between 'getting over it' and 'never speaking to John again' is the happy medium of 'having a difficult conversation with a longtime friend who did something selfish and self-absorbed on your wedding day.'"

Do you agree with Prudence? Is there a right and a wrong place and time to propose?
