Inwas kind of into this concept until they started really pushing the whole Confederates undertones. Granted, it was a different (less sensetive) time when this film was made, and its mostly just played for laughs, it doesn't age well. Also Patrick Dempsey is way better than that other dude. Like, she discovers that her shitty ex makes glass and suddenly falls head over herls for him. We didn't even discover the standard trope that Dempsey was a secret asshole and only wanted to marry her so he could buldoze the town and put up child labor sweat shops. He literally just forgives her and walks off when she leaves him at the alter. What a stand up dude.
