Pronunciation: ban-sab-at-er

Sentence: Sarah was so close to tying the knot with her darling John. If only her evil nemesis cousin hadn't turned up to the reading of the banns waving a copy of Sarah's current marriage certificate. I mean, she and Trevor hadn't seen each other for ages: it was a divorce in all but name. Couldn't her stupid bannsaboteur relative see that? And where was John, anyway?

Etymology: banns (public notice of forthcoming marriage) + saboteur (one who commits an act of destruction)
