When A Virgin Groom Tries to Make the Wedding Night Special, Secrets Spill!
By Moira McMahon, Researcher
In episode 307, The Hard Part, Newlywed Brendan rushes into Oceanside Wellness with his groomsmen because he's got a sexual emergency—priapism.
Priapism is a serious condition in which an erection won't go down—for hours. Not only is it painful, but without treatment, it causes permanent damage to the penis.
Brendan is a virgin—if he doesn't get treatment fast, he may be a virgin forever!
Wanting to make the first night "one to remember," Brendan took too many "enhancement" pills.
His bride, Melissa, is pretty nervous about their first night, too. Not because she's worried about the honeymoon—because she's pregnant. Melissa had sex for the first time at her bachelorette party. Thinking she would "get it over with" so that she would be relaxed on her wedding night, she broke her pledge to wait until marriage. Now she's got a pretty big secret walking with her down the aisle.
Secrets have a way of spilling out at the worst time. This one came out just as Brendan had a shunt in his penis to treat his priapism!
Brendan is so angry, he tells his new bride it's over. She's a mess, he's a mess—it's a big wedding day mess.
But Charlotte doesn't let Brendan walk away. She confesses that she had been married before—to someone she loved with all of her heart. He made a big mistake, and Charlotte ended her marriage. She encourages Brendan not to give up on his true love.
It turns out that Brendan isn't ready to walk away—he really loves Melissa for who she is—mistakes and all.
But did Brendan just make a huge mistake?
They made a promise to each other—and now Melissa is bringing another man's baby into their new marriage. Can love REALLY conquer all?
