People felt it was inappropriate for the bride to peg herself as a submissive wife when marriage was supposed to be all about partnership. Even in the context of religion, people felt the bride took it too far to show just how committed she was to her groom. As the bride knelt in her white dress, a bridesmaid held the microphone in front of her so she could say her vows.

The woman went on to explain that their marriage went beyond the love they felt for one another – it was about God and their mission on Earth.

While people at the wedding itself seemed to think the bride's gesture was noble and pure, people who watched the video clip on the internet had other opinions. In fact, they were appalled that the bride chose to kneel in front of her husband.

Internet Users Slammed Both the Man and Woman For Their Actions

People on Twitter believed kneeling in front of her husband wasn't necessary. However, others felt that if the bride thought it was the right thing to do, then the groom should have knelt and met her halfway.

"If a woman is going to pour her all into loving you, you should meet her halfway. He could have gotten down with her as a real man," a user commented.

"God forbid, please," one woman wrote after watching the video.

"Being married 53.5 years, I can tell you, this isn't the way to do it. Marriage is a partnership, certainly not one being submissive to the other," another echoed.

With so many mixed reactions about what transpired, people are torn whether it was the bride or the groom in the wrong. Others wondered whether there was anything wrong with the gesture at all.
