Gliding down the aisle to see your loving partner waiting for you at the other end with tears in their eyes is something many young women dream of. 

But one groom's reaction to his soon-to-be wife coming down the wedding aisle was unorthodox, to say the least - and after seeing the viral video footage online, many are calling for the couple to divorce. 

In honour of their anniversary, TikTok user Taylor shared footage of their special day.

"Four years ago today, I walked down the aisle to marry the love of my life," she captioned the video, which showed her husband smiling as she approached him to Kanye West's 'Bound 2'.

"It was one of the most important and emotional moments of our life - and my husband did the most romantic thing...

"He checked his freaking phone."

Taylor added that her partner was "husband of the year" with crying-laughing emojis. 

The clip has racked up over 2 million views, with commenters split on whether the move was "hilarious" or downright "suspicious". 

"I'd turn around and walk away," one person commented. 

"Wedding cancelled," another wrote, to which someone else agreed: "divorce". 

Others jumped to the defence of the groom, saying he was probably nervous, or "had his vows on his phone". 

The response was so huge, Taylor posted a follow-up video, asking her husband of four years why he checked his phone during arguably one of the most important moments of their lives. 

His response?

"Because crypto never sleeps." 

Perhaps divorce is the right option.
