I understand feeling bad about telling a lie…even if it’s a little white lie.
And the question that arises from this story is whether or not someone should feel like an a**hole for not letting their own husband lie during his wedding speech.
Hmmm, I guess we’ll find out…
Go ahead and see what happened.
AITA for refusing to let my future husband lie about the house he and I purchased during his ‘groom speech’?
“My fiancè (37M) and I (33F) got engaged few months ago.
We’re getting married soon and invitations were already sent out. right now we’re focusing on much smaller details. We’ve also been busy moving into our new home that we purchased together (30% of his savings + 70% of mine). I have to say that saving up for this house took most of my savings and prevented me from enjoying the things I love spending money on.
My fiancè sat me down yesterday to talk about his ‘groom speech’. he talked about few points but what made me upset was when he asked if I would be okay if he mentions the house we bought and say that HE was the one who bought it. I was a bit taken aback, I asked why and he said it’s “just a confidence boost” during the speech and that’s it.
I said I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea because I think that it’s unfair not to acknowledge the fact that I’d sacrificed so much to be able to buy the house. I reminded him of how much I contributed but he said this doesn’t change that it’s our house so it shouldn’t matter to me if he said he bought it himself or we both did.
I refused because then people will always think the house was bought by him which is something that will never change no matter how hard I try to prove that I contributed 70%. He got made at me and said that I was really overthinking this whole thing and making a big deal out of it.
We got into an argument and he started yelling saying it’s just one favor he’s asking me to do and yet, I’m making this ridiculous, small request my hill to d** on.
He’s basically sulking and now he’s out and refusing to answer my calls so basically he’s started the silent treatment til I cave in. AITA for making this my hill to d** on?”
Let’s see how Reddit users reacted.
One person said she’s NTA and that he’s probably already been telling people this.
And this individual also said she’s NTA and added that this guy sounds shady.
And another Reddit user said no one would care anyway if it took two incomes to buy the house and that this probably won’t end well.
Now it’s your turn!

We’d love to hear from you!
