There must be someone who'd try to justify her, right?

She was definitely unreasonable! My least favourite character by far. Her reasonings and demands etc reminded me of high school boyfriend/girlfriend dramas, ugh lol. Sure, Ross said the wrong name and it hurt her, as it would most people I'm sure, but she went kinda crazy. Plus our introduction to her wasn't exactly great!

I'm probably the only one here who doesn't hate her?
Sure she wasn't my favourite character but I'm pretty positive a lot of people would act like she did if the same thing happened to them. Think if your fiance would say his ex-girlfriend's (and not just any ex-girlfriend) name when you're marrying him... Wouldn't that make you paranoid?!?! Although, I think she did the wrong thing by saying yes after that lol

I guess I can see where she was coming from. But I feel that the root cause is because Ross and her rushed into that marriage.

I don't think she was unreasonable for getting out of her relationship with Ross because it was rushed, embarrassing, and lacked trust, however her demands were. When she became engaged with that other guy not long after she and Ross broke up, I thought that stupid of her. . . you'd think she would learn to take things slow.

She was completely unreasonable. She took it out on Rachel, not Ross. Remember when she calls and all the Friends are hanging out and she says about Rachel 'he's knows what I think of her by now'... Um, what? Rachel did nothing. Ross was the one who said the wrong name. She had no reason to hate Rachel. I can understand where she's coming from in some aspects but that one comment... WTH?

It was just wrong on so many levels that she wanted Ross to cut Rachel out of his life. I can try and understand all other things she did and demanded but that particular thing made me dislike her so much.

Yay, an Emily topic!

She was wet, yes. Rachel said she couldn't go to the opera with her, yes. But she didn't even wait to listen to her. She was mad and pissed and left...

For sure! If she was reasonable, she would have cancelled the whole thing and that would be it. No "let's have a party and pretend everything is fine while I'm in the bathroom and my husband is trying to talk to me". It was a bad decision, maybe as bad as Ross saying the wrong name. If anything, she just made things worse, saying "I do".

Maybe yes, the haste might have been one of the things that resulted in such a bad marriage. But, as you said, ChanChanMan, this doesn't seem to be Emily's opinion on the subject, since it only took some months for her to get married again, and worse, while still thinking about Ross and wondering if they had made a mistake (!) getting apart.

Now, that maybe is what makes me hate her. ROSS got all crazy and said the wrong name. Emily was marrying HIM, she wasn't marrying Rachel. Why Rachel should be the person to get blamed for everything? She shouldn't be blamed for anything (maybe it would be better if she hadn't gone to the wedding, but still, she didn't make Ross say "Rachel" just by being there IMO). Emily was humiliated, yes and I understand why she would be mad (I would too, very much!). But she made bad decisions and went over the top completely, showing she wasn't mature, understanding or even, loyal to what she thought was "right" in a relationship.

In other words, stupid British bitch xD

I always thought she was right for what Ross did to her, but all the other things were just wrong. Hating Rach, agreeing to get married anyways after the wrong name thing, getting away from the party without talking to him and showing at the airport later (what's that about?!), asking for Ross to cut out people from his life, change apartment and furniture... just wrong!

I don't think Emily was in the right, but I can completely understand why she would be paranoid about Rachel. I think after Ross broke her trust twice (wedding and honeymoon) that she became super controlling to try and regain a sense of control over Ross.

I personally liked her as a character up until that point. I didn't like it when Ross tried to control Rachel's life with Mike (?) so in a sense he was getting a taste of what he had dished out to Rachel.

Ok.. Since we all love the gang we are on their side! haha giggling But I think Emily was reasonable ONLY after the wedding incident! I mean, your husband said someone else's name, then you saw him getting on a plane with her, then you were lied to about being with her. Come on, that would be hurtful!
We all knew that Ross had no wrong intentions and that he wanted to be with Emily, but if we were in Emily's shoes, we wouldn't have known that of course. But putting myself in her shoes I think she was reasonable when not wanting Ross to be with her. But since we know what was really happening I hated her and she was unreasonable! hahahaha lol Does that make sense? what? hahaha smile
