This covers 1703AD-now (where Matt25 starts, v.1), 17 mins. First use of 'bridegroom' is 1748-49, Treaty ending War of Austrian Succession
which WAS about who would husband (literally) the Holy Roman Empire. So I feel comfortable saying that's the satire, 'bridegroom' from politics, by those negative to God.
This was really the first world war, and the effective end of the Holy Roman Empire, though it would limp along a generation longer.
The War was fought on all continents. Read the Austrian Succession
link above, it's helpful.

Yeah, I'm thinking over the same topics as I type. Above are 2 audios in reply, but I need to firm up some ideas. The only thing I can say for sure is that it IS double-entendre (false vs real bridegroom), a theme from the beginning of Matt25.
Matt25 begins at 1703AD, if we counted sylls in Matt24 correctly. So it's a whole-world political transitioning largely impacted by the Industrial Revolution, which was just about to start, which had a HUGE impact on our political leanings, great shift into false saviors, etc.
So clearly the 'bridegroom' occurrences need to be traced to get the theme, in addition to the anaphora. Of course, what is typed below is speculative, just to get a hypothetical framework.
Remember, the Matt24-25 theme is still an elaboration on Daniel's Man of Time from Daniel 2, which Daniel updates in a timeline via his meter in Daniel 9, then updated by Mary, and now by Her Son. So we're tracing out the development of the feet of clay and iron, wondering if the US becomes the King of the North(west).
1st occurrence: 1748-49
(including the 30 years addon to get AD), the Succession itself which resulted in a fragmentation of empire, which resulted in the separate empires that would end up fighting in WWI.
2nd occurrence: 1820-21.
Not coming up with much here. Unless it's a biting reference to Napoleon, who dies in 1821, having been defeated since 1815
(delaying to die, is that the satire?)
3rd occurrence: 1845-6.
Nothing sticks out here yet. It should be important, for it's the shout that the Bridegroom is coming.
4th and final occurrence: 1975-76. just as the foolish virgin Christians are leaving, the Bridegroom actually arrives, and they didn't even see Him!
In America, it's a turning point for the prolifers, which seem featured (their denouement). Reagan becomes the darling of the prolifer conservatives in 1976, they really looked to him as a bridegroom/savior etc.
But probably more meaning than that, need to keep looking.
