A groom is facing a bill of £25,000 after his wife-to-be left him for another WOMAN just six weeks before their wedding.
Heartbroken Adam Vickers, 24, had planned to marry childhood sweetheart Laura O’Callaghan, 24, in a beautiful rural venue and they had already sent out invites, hired a photographer, DJ and Bentley for the bride.
The couple of 10 years had even booked their honeymoon to Thailand, bringing the total cost up to £25,000.
However, just weeks before the big day, plumber Adam discovered his partner had been having an affair with Sinead Keziah.
Adam was forced to cancel the wedding and has taken to Gumtree to sell items to pay for it.
Now the plumber has plunged into a deep depression which was made worse by seeing pictures of his ex and her new girlfriend on Facebook.
Adam, from Middlesbrough, said: “It came as a huge shock. We had been together for ten years and I never suspected she was a lesbian.
“I tried to keep my emotions in but everything was crashing down around me. I was absolutely devastated. I never thought she would lie to me like that.
“I was bothered about losing the money but the main thing was Laura. We had been together for ten years and I adored her.”
Adam revealed that he only realised what was going on after he had gone to Tenerife on the week he and Laura were due to be married.
He said: “Laura had blocked me on social media so I couldn’t see what she was posting but one of my friends sent me a picture of her and Sinead together.
“That’s when it clicked. I felt physically sick in my stomach. I was gutted… I couldn’t help thinking it was down to me not being good enough.
“I never suspected that she liked women. She was affectionate and everything was normal. She never expressed any interest in girls.
“It totally broke my heart. We had been planning the wedding for months.
“We were going to get ready and then go to the church and get married. All our family and friends were going to be there. It was supposed to be the dream day.
“If she had just come out and said how she felt it would have been easier. What she did instead was evil.”
Adam and Laura met at Newlands Catholic School in Middlesbrough and began dating in 2007.
They went to prom together, enjoyed luxury holidays and made plans for their future lives, even picking out names for their children.
In June 2013, loved-up Adam popped the question on a beach in Cuba and last February they moved into their first house together.
They then started planning their wedding for July 30, last year.
But Laura, who was studying nursing at university at the time, had hit it off with a colleague and they’d started seeing each other secretly.
Adam added: “Looking back when I know what happened I started piecing things together. Laura’s body was there but her head was elsewhere.
“She was talking about Sinead a lot but it blew over my head because I’m laid back.
“We all met up once – me, Laura, Sinead and a boy she was seeing. She seemed up front and confident. We were all chatting.
“I thought she seemed fun but I didn’t think anything of it. I didn’t know what was going on behind my back.”
The pair argued more in the run up to the wedding before Laura walked out and messaged friends to tell them the big day was cancelled.
She has since updated her Facebook cover photo to a love padlock locked to a fence inscribed with her and Sinead’s names and hearts.
And in February, Adam claims a post on Laura’s page showed the women celebrating their first anniversary – meaning they were together four months before she left him.
He estimates he lost £20k in total in money splashed on everything from outfits and catering to invites and cars, though the honeymoon was in Laura’s name.
Adam, who now has a new partner, added: “It totally broke my heart at the time.
“Now I feel angry more than anything. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for the girl. It was a massive betrayal.”
Laura confirmed she left Adam a few weeks before the wedding and is in a new relationship.
She said: “I haven’t left him in any debt whatsoever.”
Told of his heartache, she added: “Tell Adam to f*** off and do one.

Look I'm not a violent guy. I don't play violent video games. Never had any interest in them. I'm a Madden guy. I've never even been a real fist-fight before. Shit, even when I was a kid, I wouldn't let my mom kill bugs, I'd tell her to set them free. Big pussy move by me, I can admit that. But what I'm trying to say is that I'm a chilled out, laid back dude. That shit just isn't me.
But I can't lie to you, after reading this article the first thing I thought was "he should fucking kill her" Just how I felt. Which I can't lie kind of freaked me out thinking that. That's not how I'm wired. I'm not like that.
But can we be honest for a second?
Not every murder is the same. It's not all black and white. There's a lot of gray area. There's plenty of examples of justifiable homicide throughout history, and I just want set up a dialogue here. Would you be mad at this guy if he killed his ex? Would this fall under that umbrella of "yeah I get why he did it" murders?
I'm not condoning murder, I'm just saying there's times where you get where the killer was coming from. Let's think about this for a second, they were together for TEN YEARS. That's a longgggg time. That's impressive for people in their 40's. Doing that at 24 years old that blows my mind. That's some 1950's shit. High-School sweethearts aren't really a thing anymore. For nearly 42% of their lives they were together. I'd argue it was even more because life doesn't really start until you're like 5 years old. Before that you are basically a pet that your parents have to make sure doesn't die and knows how to read. So for over half their "alive" lives these two kids were together.
So these two were together for a decade, had been engaged for like four years (which seems a little excessive) and had already spent £25,000, which I (google) just did the math, is about $31,000 on their wedding. That's a lot of money, especially for young people.
Then six weeks beforehand she reveals that not only is she leaving him, she's leaving him for a girl AND left him eating the bill for their wedding that never happened. Oh and they've been together for like 4 months already.
I'm not saying he should kill her, but I'm just asking would you understand if he did? Would you get mad at this guy? Because honestly I don't think I could. I think if he did people would understand. Kind of like when you hear about a dad murdering the dude who rape his daughter. Nobody is mad at that dad, in fact, they usually respect the move. Sure you're still going to jail, but at least people respect you. I'm just curious would this situation be potentially viewed similarly? This dude lost everything, his girl, AND his money. What does he have to live for? It's not like he's 33 and some girl he met when he was 30 broke up with him after they were engaged. These people were basically together over half of their lives, including all of their adult life. Love and money are honestly the only things that matter in life. The people you love and the money you have to support them/yourself, that's what matters. I'd call this situation rock bottom for Adam.
Not only did she leave this poor guy, but she also left him with a $31,000 tab afterwards. Talk about your classic salt in the wound scenario. The very least she could've done here is gone Dutch with the guy. Plus let's be adults. She left him for a girl. That hurts more. I'm not homophobic, that's just straight up facts. Cause you know his friends busted his balls relentlessly that he "turned his girl gay" or something of that nature. That 100% happened. If this dude has any friends I guarantee at least one said something. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm just being 100. Now he feels like less of a man. The dude lost everything and was emasculated.
I'm not saying he should kill her, but I think everybody would understand if he did. Not only that, but she has ZERO remorse. When asked about it she said "tell him to fuck off". Are you fucking kidding me? That alone warrants at least a few slaps and I'm wicked anti-hitting women. I think there's no situation where it's okay. At least I did until I read that. It's not like she's feels terrible that she broke his heart and had this big whole, "I just couldn't live a lie anymore" song and dance. At least you could understand that. Nope. The complete opposite. She's just saying "fuck him" and left him a broken (literally) man. Chicks man, they really are the worst. I'm not saying I would kill her or that murder is okay, but I think we can all be adults here and say given her actions, if she was murdered people would definitely understand why. So to answer my own question: No, I would not be mad at this guy if he killed her.
P.S. Not only did this guy lose his girl and all his money, but she also got hotter and is dating a pretty good looking chick. I feel like either he has to kill her, or kill himself. I don't see a world where they both can stay alive. Somebody has got to go.
