This woman thinks her brother-in-law’s secret wedding was disrespectful to the rest of the family. She said this to her partner, who got super mad and accused her of being a jerk. Here’s the backstory to this domestic drama.
Wedding bells were ringing
“My partner and I are gearing up for his brother’s wedding next year,” shared the woman. Her partner is the best man, so he’s been stressed about his speech and planning the bachelor party.
She bought a new dress
She doesn’t have a role in the ceremony. The only thing she has to worry about is finding a new wedding outfit. “I don’t get the chance to dress up often, so I’m going to pick up a dress I love,” she said.
There was a secret wedding
But a few days ago, the couple found out some shocking news. His brother had run off with his fiancée to get married in secret. “They eloped and had a courthouse wedding last month,” she said. “They couldn’t wait to get married anymore.”
It didn’t change the plans
The happy couple is still planning the ceremony and party for the rest of the family. However, they haven’t told them that they’re already married. And they’re not planning to!
She said what she meant
This woman couldn’t believe it when she found out. And she didn’t hold back on her opinions. She said, “The first thing out of my mouth when my partner told me was that I thought that was kind of messed up.”
He didn’t understand
He asked her why. She replied, “I feel like it was wrong to hide that information from people. Some might not want to travel or pay as much money for a wedding that isn’t an actual wedding.”
He didn’t know what to say
Her partner didn’t say anything for a few minutes. He also looked really confused, like he’d never thought about it like this before.
Then he got mad. He shouted, “Well, I’m still excited about it.” Then he stormed out of the room.
She ruined it
A few days later, he started accusing her of ruining the special occasion for him. And she can kind of see his point.
It wouldn’t be the same
“I’m, of course, still excited about the party and supportive of the relationship and wedding,” she said. “But I’m always aware that I burst my partner’s bubble.” In his mind, this special occasion doesn’t feel so special anymore.
She couldn’t decide
She hasn’t changed her opinion on the upcoming fake wedding. “I feel like they’re taking away that choice from people by hiding their marital status.” But she feels terrible for being insensitive toward her partner. So she asked, “Am I being petty about his brother’s upcoming wedding?”
The internet answered
“I think you are,” said one person. “It’s still a ceremony and a chance for people to celebrate and catch up with everyone they may not have seen in ages. It’s still exciting.”
“I get your point of view,” posted another. “But some opinions are best left unsaid, especially if they’re about stuff that won’t directly affect you. Just get on board for your partner’s sake. Sometimes, other people’s feelings are more important than our opinions.”
