'Already married' syndrome: The video montage

By Jen Chaney

In honor of the release of the new movie adaptation of "Jane Eyre" -- which, as all good English majors know, involves a major reveal about Mr. Rochester's wife -- Vulture has put together this montage of classic "Wait, you're married?" moments from TV and film.

Watching them all in a one-minute-and-40-second-long clip makes one realize how even the best uses of this narrative device -- "Up in the Air," "Casablanca" -- can seem cliche when rolled into a viral video.

Also, for the record, I'd just like to point out that the clip of Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper in "He's Just Not That Into You" shouldn't count because Johansson's character already knew Cooper's character was married. In that particular scene, she was merely angry because he just had sex with his wife (Jennifer Connelly) while Johansson was hiding in a bathroom.

Yes, it is pathetic and sad that I know that.
