Reddit users went all out on a woman who shared her story on the platform. The woman stated she wouldn’t attend her sister's wedding unless the date of the wedding was changed, leading to various comments against her decision.
Reddit continues to provide a platform for many of its users to share their stories, and then get different unbiased views and opinions from other members of the social media channel. That was again the case when a woman narrated her story, wanting to know if she had erred or not.
Asking Another Person to Change the Date of their Wedding to Suit one's self was Rude
The woman explained that she lives in the midwest while her sister lives on the coast. Now, her sister is planning her wedding, which would hold on a Tuesday in March.
The woman's sister wants her to be her maid of honor, and her daughters (aged 1 and 3) to be her flower girls. The woman further explained that she hadn’t received invitations yet and that her husband wouldn’t be able to attend the wedding if it falls on a weekday, as he had just resumed on a new job, and hadn’t gotten enough PTO.
She thus asked her sister if she could move the wedding to a Saturday to enable her husband to attend, to which her sister refused. Her refusal bodes on the fact that Tuesday happens to be the cheapest day to book their wedding venue, for which they had already paid a deposit.
The woman's complaint is that she is a "stay at home" mom and has no nanny, hence won't be able to attend the wedding by herself. She and her children would also be needing two days for travel, and would not be able to travel out on the same day because their airport is a small one.
She added that apart from the logistical issues involved in traveling with her young kids, she would love to come with her husband. She ended by asking if she would be wrong not to attend the wedding.
Her story attracted hundreds of reactions, with many of the comments accusing her of erring for not wanting to attend. One user said the woman wasn’t putting any effort in trying to attend the wedding, adding that she has a five-month notice to get childcare arranged if she really wanted to attend the wedding.
The user also added that asking another person to change the date of their wedding to suit one's self was rude. Another user shared similar sentiments, telling the woman that she was inconsiderate and that she didn’t have to go if she didn’t want to.
The second user added that the woman's sister really wants her to come, and that going as far as including her children in the ceremony showed how much she did.
Reddit Users were much kinder to another woman who shared her story about her not wanting to invite her parents to her wedding because they have a history of being rude to her fiancé.
Her fiancé was on the Autism Spectrum and had some issues. Her parents, however, always took up issues with him and were always aggressive towards him, and this has made her consider not inviting them to her wedding.
Most people who commented on the woman's story backed her for taking the decision, saying that if her parents couldn’t respect her husband, then they didn’t deserve to be at her wedding.
