However, once he finally gets them right, he discovers he accidentally recited them to a corpse. He stops to rest in the woods,and while practicing, he gets them right and puts his wedding ring on a finger-shaped stick in the ground and says his wedding vows.

Wandering through the black mangled trees, Victor just can't memorize his wedding vows. Victor's hesitance towards marriage causes him to jumble the words. Two prominent families have arranged their children to be married in order to overcome financial difficulties.
Victoria nearly groaned out loud to see her own mother storming towards them, all etiquette forgotten. Her father was trying to keep up, waddling from behind and breathing as if he had run across the vast mountains instead of across the street. Everglot reached them and grabbed her daughter's hand, pulling the girl away from her love.
Running off like that, and in the arms of someone who is not your husband, nonetheless! Lord Barkis is dead!
He died by his own hand. Everglot gave a loud gasp. Do you hear the vulgarity coming from your daughter's mouth? Everglot had finally caught up. Victoria looked at her parents, determined.
I was rather hoping, well…" "That is to say, we," Victor had snuck up behind her, sounding extremely nervous.
Victor van Dort
After all, who wasn't scared of Victoria's beastly mother? She glared, never really liking the Van Dort boy at all. But, if Lord Barkis was, in fact, dead, then what would she do for money? She stared daggers at him. She couldn't stay locked up in her room without Victor for an entire year!
Barkis was a beast…a murderer!

Is there no other way…? You will go through your mourning starting tonight. Then you will marry…" she sent a disgusted look in Victor's direction. He didn't flinch, obviously angry that Mrs.
Everglot had hit Victoria. Victoria stared longingly back at Victor and reached a hand out to the man out of her reach, feeling like she would cry all over again.
Victoria nearly had her heart broken from not seeing Victor for three days. Imagine what a whole year would do!
I thought the world needed more VictorxVictoria stories, so here it is! I know a lot of people prefer Emily and Victor to Victoria, but in the grand scheme of things, Emily had already lived her life and Fate happened to play the worst cards for the poor corpse bride. But the whole movie was about her letting go and being free. Victor was always in love with Victoria, even if Emily was entrancing. Haughty and contempt, Maudeline is a cold, distant figure whose primary objective is in keeping with proper decorum and civilized habits to preserve her family's good name.
She makes it clear that her feelings for her husband, Finnis, extends only so far as toleration, and that she does not "like" him and that her motherly duties are only to find her daughter a "proper" match in this instance- money. Let's assume that Emily is - was?
Corpse Bride () - Plot Summary - IMDb
Emily runs off with their family's fortune after their parents forbid her from marrying Lord Barkis. Emily then "disappears" diesand the family discovers, and is shamed, by their daughter's elopement.
Due to losing their finances due to Emily running off with them, they have no choice but to marry their other daughter, Maudeline, to the "wealthy" Finis Everglot. Or, Maudeline does so "out of duty" and "to help her family". However, the marriage is only for money, and Maudeline knows this. She only "tolerates" and "doesn't like" her husband, and when she speaks of marriage to her own daughter, Victoria, it's all about finding her a "proper match" - one with money.
Likewise, I feel it's safe to assume that, because Victoria grows up to look so much like Emily, this spawns resentment and bitterness in her mother - as Maudeline may have been forced to marry a man she didn't love Finis Everglot due to Emily's elopement.
Indeed, I feel that the Everglots particularly Maudeline ordering for Victoria to be "locked in her room" to keep their own daughter from running off - just like Emily, albeit not to wed someone - also alludes to Maudeline's past experience, and memories, of what happened when Emily "escaped" Maudeline's family was forced into financial ruin, or at least diminished wealth, due to it, and as such, she won't stand for similar behavior from her daughter.
Last but not least, I think that Maudeline Everglot's personality, appearance, and behavior, in contrast to Emily's, really highlight the differences between an older and a younger sibling.

Kevin Leman, a psychologist who has studied birth order since and author of The Birth Order Book: Simply by virtue of being a couple's first child, a firstborn will naturally be a sort of experiment for the new parents, a mixture of instinct and trial-and-error. Perhaps this will cause the parents to become by-the-book caregivers who are extremely attentive, stringent with rules, and overly neurotic about the minutiae.
This in turn may cause the child to become a perfectionist, always striving to please his parents. In contrast, if the couple decides to have a second child, they might raise their second-born with less of an iron first due to their experiences raising their firstborn. They might also be less attentive to the second-born since there's another child competing for attention, and they probably will be less inclined to impulsively dial every time the child breaks a sweat.
