In the movie Richard Gere played the writer who was jilted by Julia Roberts but who won her over at the end of the movie. He ran after her initially as she galloped away on the horse where the two of them was supposed to ride off into the sunset married. However, Julia jilted Richard Gere and then changed her mind and she came back to him.

In real life, normally, people do not jilt each other on the day of the wedding. Nowadays, they usually “break off” the wedding engagement. To break off a wedding engagement sounds more appropriate than being jilted because the bride and the groom would not have been standing in front of the priest waiting to get married. Depending on the emotional state of the person who was jilted, they may choose to move on or to wallow in heartache and heartbreak hoping that the person who jilted them would have a change of heart. This scenario indicates that one of them in the relationship was more in love than the other. It takes time for the jilted person to realize that maybe the relationship was not meant to be and it was best that someone bolted instead of agonizing trying to make a relationship work.

To see someone jilted will most likely be played out on a situation comedy or in a movie such as Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. The comedy writers would have a situation that though painful for the jilted person would make a laughable event for television or movie viewers with paid sponsorship. In real life, however, the jilted person would be greatly embarrassed and most likely would appear in Judge Judy’s court room finding some way to get back the time lost trying to build a relationship. The jilted guy may want to sue to get both hisengagement ring and cost of the wedding ring back. Legal trappings usually follow present day jilted situations as most people today will not take being humiliated and left at the altar without a legal recourse of action.

Jilted? The relationship was not meant to be because it was stopped before the legal proceeding of marriage. There is not a relationship brewing with only one person standing before the priest or the justice of the peace. The best thing to do is to move on and chart the experience up as a lesson learned that everything happens for a reason.
