Messy prenuptial agreement cancels wedding

Did you hear about the couple who pulled the plug on their wedding two hours before it was set to begin?  It seems an investment banker was set to marry a hotel heiress when their lawyers made a mess of everything.

Apparently the 33-year old and 28-year old couple reached an agreement but a day later the bride demanded that a clause stating she would receive alimony in the event of a divorce be inserted into it.  Ordinarily that is fine; however, she has a large trust fund of her own to fall back on.  An ultimatum was issue and the wedding was cancelled.
