A proposal is supposed to be an intimate, personal moment between two lovers. It’s about their future together and it’s not really about anyone else, but in recent years, the grand gesture has eclipsed the quiet one asking for somebody’s hand in marriage.
This woman decided to ask her girlfriend to spend the rest of her life together at her sister’s baby shower.
Her sister who she knew doesn’t really approve of her lesbian relationship.
Even though no one disagreed that her sister and family are sh*tty for not supporting her sexuality and her long-term relationship, everyone was also pretty much in agreement that someone else’s celebration is not the time to hog the spotlight.
Others pointed out that her now-fiancee also has reasons to be upset, seeing as her girlfriend used their special moment to get in a dig at her family.
While others pointed out that proposing in front of a crowd is a good way to pressure the other person into saying yes, and if it had happened to them, they would be having a serious chat with OP (original poster).
And we can all agree that rubbing something in your family’s face is not a good reason to propose at all.
And we’re all cringing just so hard, and we weren’t even there.
I’ve gotta agree with everyone on Reddit on this one – she’s definitely TA (The A**hole), and I’d hope her partner asks for some serious discussions before wedding plans proceed.
