Being stood up at the altar on the day of one's wedding sounds pretty much like a scene from just romance movies, something you'll find in only soaps and novels.

It's an embarrassing scene no one ever wants to play in but the possibility surely exists.

Just ask this groom whose bride returned to her ex on the eve of their wedding and was no where to be found on the morning she was supposed to be reading her wedding vows at the altar.

In the latest episode of Pulse's "What if", we put people on the spot and ask them what they'd do if they find themselves in this unfortunate situation.

Members of Kenyan music group, Sauti Soul, are celebrity guests on this episode and they say if they ever get dumped at the altar, they'll proceed to go on the planned honeymoon without the runaway bride.

Polycarp, the group's guitarist says he's going to just try and "meet new people," and enjoy the timeout as much as possible, given the circumstance.

All four talented members of the group agree that it is better to be left at the altar than to get divorced.

"It's a bullet dodged," says Willis, the saxophonist of the lot.

Other respondents to the question have interesting answers.
