People can get downright rude when it comes to who will or won’t be invited to their weddings.
But what happens when you start cutting out the significant others of your family members because you don’t agree with their lifestyle?
Read this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page and see what happened…
AITA for refusing to go to my brother’s wedding if my girlfriend cannot come?
“I (31F) have a girlfriend of 3 years, (32F), we don’t yet live together but have begun to look for a place to get together as both our flats are too small to have two people so things are very serious.
My brother (34M) is planning his wedding to his Fiance (29F), I of course assumed my Girlfriend would be welcome to come as my plus one after all she’s basically one of the family now and we will be living together soon but no, my Brother told me that he doesn’t think it’s a good idea for her to come as the wedding will be in a church and that his Fiance’s family are “traditional”.
He tried to tell me that she could come to the reception etc but he’d rather she just wasn’t at the ceremony.
My Girlfriend is willing to accept this but I feel as though my brother is being unfair considering our younger sisters boyfriend of six months is invited, it’s clear this is just because I am dating a woman, so I told my brother if my girlfriend wasn’t welcome at the ceremony I wouldn’t come either and i’d just go to the reception after too, this caused a lot of drama from my family and my parents and siblings are all insisting i’m “Overreacting” and how it’s “Not personal” and that as it’s not my day I should just accept this.
Honestly at this point I want to just skip the reception too…so..AITA?”
Now check out how folks responded on Reddit.
This reader said that this is definitely about this woman being gay.
And this Reddit user said that if this is to make his in-laws happy, that makes it even worse.
And this individual said that she probably won’t be welcome to any events in the future with these folks.
Lastly, this reader said that the in-laws aren’t “traditional”, they sound like something a lot worse.
