Alice is Ax-Crazy
after Fred, who's into Claire who's avoiding Bob who's a secret agent in hiding. Somehow Claire also managed to piss Alice off by stealing her bike and now Fred is blackmailing Bob for -- oops, we're out of showtime. Quick, something!
Claire and Fred get married. Everything is settled. The end.

Compare and contrast with Weddings for Everyone
, which covers examples where characters get married after
the other aspects of the plot have been concluded.
