HOUSTON -

An unhappy couple said a judge spoiled what was supposed to be their wedding day.

Larry Durham told local 2 he and his fiancee, Corrina Akos, went to see Judge "J" Kent Adams Friday morning.    

The couple had their wedding license in hand --but were forced to wait.

They said a man with no appointment was shuttled right into the judge's chambers.

The couple was frustrated and asked about the delay. They found out the man was a government worker who had a personal matter.

The couple said they decided not to let it ruin the moment, but when they got into the judge's chambers he brought it up.

"He looked at me and said, 'Well, I don't think you've got the right attitude for this.' And my response was 'I'm not irritated with her, I'm irritated with you.' At that moment he literally threw the marriage license across his desk at me, and he said, 'You go get married somewhere else,'" Durham said.

We spoke with Adams, who denied throwing the marriage license. He said he believed the man, who went before the couple, was there on official business. So he allowed that man to cut in line.


The judge did admit that he told the couple to come back when the groom was in a better mood.
