It turned out to be a bitter-sweet Valentine's Day for one robber this year when a judge in the US presided over his wedding - just moments after he had jailed him for up to 18 years.
Kevin Felder was sentenced to between five and 18 years behind bars for second-degree robbery in West Virginia.
Just moments later in the same courtroom Felder exchanged vows with his sweetheart Misty Johnson.
As he said: 'I do', he was still wearing his handcuffs.
Circuit Judge James Mazzone performed the wedding after sentencing Felder.
He declined Felder's request to have the handcuffs removed during the ceremony.
"I'm sorry, but I can't allow that," Judge Mazzone said. "You are in custody."
And they say romance is dead.
What was the point when your going away for 18 years. LOL
