If women were to decide on a wedding, it would be: Blessed is the man who openly shed tears for he shall always be consoled. This is because men have a habit of closing up and hiding their emotions.
As a man, one of the most shameful things you can do (according to society) is cry in public. Being a man is akin to strength so crying is seen as a huge sign of weakness and men are supposed to keep a brave face at all times.
However for some men, certain moments can touch their heart and make them give into their emotions. One of these moments seems to be during their wedding.
Some grooms will smile, others will have a straight face but these days, some men will hold nothing back and shed tears. It may be during the wedding or after, but a wave of emotion will hit them and cause them to cry because of how blessed they are to have their wife.
Below are 10 grooms who cried at their wedding along with quotes about crying:
