It is probably an awkward situation that no girl wants to be in.
On Reddit, a woman took her complaints to an anonymous post asking for opinions of netizens about an awkward situation she encountered. Her post has attracted the attention of many Redditors.
According to this woman, she is getting married in May, while her fiancé’s 25-year-old daughter will tie the knot in June.
A woman confessed she and her fiancé’ have not offered his daughter any money for her wedding – nor has she asked. However, the grandmother, the poster’s future mother-in-law, is absolutely furious.
“His mother is upset that we aren’t paying for his daughter’s wedding and has been making comments that we are selfish and he doesn’t need a second wedding,” the woman said.
“My mother-in-law told my soon-to-be stepdaughter that her father doesn’t care about her or that he would want to pay for her wedding,” she added.
The daughter’s wedding dress appointment was the “final straw” for the soon-to-be stepmother.
The woman said it was awkward once she realized her daughter only invited her because her mother-in-law was pressuring her. However, that wasn’t the worst part.
The bride found her dress and was about to buy it, when her mother-in-law turned to me in front of everyone (three friends, her future mother-in-law, and the consultant) and asked if I was going to pay for it.
She was even told to stop by his daughter.
“The dress cost $14,000.
“There was no way I was paying for that.”
The daughter eventually ended the grandmother’s outburst, but not before the grandmother added another comment about her father not loving her enough.
The stepmother wrote, “I finally snapped at her to shut up.”.
After that, the woman was repeatedly attacked by her mother-in-law with terrible and insulting words, but she couldn’t argue back.
“Mother-in-law said we were being too hard on her. That was a mean threat, and we are heartless,” she concluded.
Fortunately for the poster, fellow Redditors confirmed that she was not at fault – but what really concerned them was the price of the wedding dress.
“$14K for a dress! “I spent less than that on both of my weddings,” one reader wrote.
Apparently, the mother-in-law doesn’t ‘love her granddaughter enough’ to pay $14K, let alone the entire wedding expenses,” another said.
“Granddaughter didn’t even ask for money, and any bride who can pay $14,000 for a wedding dress clearly has no financial worries.
Enough is enough,” a third person complained.
What about you? How do you feel about this situation?
