This Mom Wanted to Pay for Her Son’s Dream Wedding Despite His Anxiety, but His Fiancée’s Struggling Parents Demanded the Cash Instead.

A loving mother was eager to fund her son’s dream wedding. But with his anxiety around crowds and his fiancée’s financially struggling parents pushing for the money, she found herself caught in a dilemma. Here’s what she had to say:

Her Son’s Engagement

Her son got engaged to his high school sweetheart named Bianca. Now, she and her husband were financially secure, so they offered to pay for the whole wedding. “My son said he would cover half the cost, which I’m happy he’s offering to pay, but I told him to save that and put it towards their honeymoon instead,” she said.

On the other hand, Bianca’s parents whom she never really liked said the couple didn’t need a big wedding. They proceeded to ask her to give them money instead. They were having financial problems and were about to be kicked out.

Their older son died in a car crash seven months ago. He was the one who used to pay their bills and rent. Before he died, he left them all his money. Instead of grieving him, her inlaws mostly complained about not being able to go on a vacation this year.

Bianca’s parents kept insisting that they needed the money. They said Bianca would rather have them live comfortably than have a wedding. But she didn’t tell Bianca all this. She even blocked their phone numbers when they kept contacting her. They never even asked Bianca for money, because she always refused them.

Bianca’s parents were invited to the wedding because her son thought it would make them happy. But she wasn’t comfortable with their old-fashioned ideas. “They always wanted her to be married. (Very sexist and old-time views, they expected her to be a stay-at-home-mom,” she said.

Lately, Bianca’s parents insulted her and said she was babying her son. They claimed that if she truly loved him, then she shouldn’t be forcing him to have a large wedding. They said this because her son had social anxiety and was scared of crowds.

Bianca’s parents clearly wanted the money for themselves. They said if she was a good mother, then she should allow him to have a courtroom or small wedding with just close relatives.

Despite his fears, her son was excited about the wedding and wanted to see Bianca walk down the aisle. He cared a lot about her dream of a beautiful wedding. But she was stressed because of all the drama.

One user said, “They are doing what they want. It seems like they are happy. As long as your kid wants the wedding, you are good. I’d block Bianca’s family and move on.”

Another user said, “If your money will not go to your son’s wedding doesn’t mean that it will go to Bianca’s parents. Your son’s future in-laws are somehow entitled to your money.
