Here we go again…
It’s another story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page that centers around someone wanting to have a child-free wedding…and them catching heat for it.
Check out what’s going on in this one and let us know what you think in the comments.
AITA for wanting a child-free wedding?
“I (22f) am getting married soon.
Since my fiancé and I are childfree and because we plan to have alcohol at our wedding, we decided to have a childfree wedding with the age cutoff at 21.
This requirement so far has gone over well with most of our invitees (most of our invitees don’t even have kids anyway so it doesn’t make a difference for them).
I do have one friend “Mel” (20f) that I had to exclude from the wedding. After realizing that pretty much everyone else from the same social circle had been invited except her, she confronted me and demanded to know why she wasn’t invited.
I tried to explain that it wasn’t personal and that I just didn’t want to have to worry about underage drinking going on under my nose on my wedding day.
But Mel kept accusing me of being a bad friend. She argued that since we had drank together before it shouldn’t be such a big deal, but I told her that it was different since we were both underage at the time (I was 20 and she was 18-19ish when we started drinking together).
Now as an adult, I feel like I have a responsibility to prevent underage drinking, and as the bride, I feel like I have the right to have a childfree wedding.
Mel is unconvinced and keeps talking bad about me behind my back to our mutual friends and making snarky comments about me feeling superior. I don’t see why she can’t just relax and let me have my wedding day the way I like.
And here’s what Reddit users had to say.
This person said she’s an a**hole in a major way.
And this Reddit user said she’s an a**hole and that she’s being a bridezilla.
Another individual said no one should get married when they’re this young and that she’s a hypocritical a**hole.
