A groom in Germany is already in hot water, forgetting his bride at a gas station on the way home from their honeymoon.

The man didn't notice she was missing for more than two hours.

The couple was heading home to Berlin from France when the man pulled over to fill up their van late Thursday, police told The Associated Press.

His bride, who had been sleeping in the back, got up to use the bathroom unbeknownst to him.

He drove off before she returned, and didn't notice she was gone until he was 2 1/2 hours up the road, according to the AP.

The man called police, who told him his bride was patiently waiting back at the station.
