A beleaguered young man cries out for advice as his family turn their backs on him following an exorbitant wedding fresh slammed on him by his in-laws.
The man in question told how his in-laws insisted he pay for his fiancée’s parents’ wedding to prove he was serious about their daughter.
However, his parents kicked the wedding after the in-laws budgeted for expensive wedding plans that were non-negotiable.
Ewad the full post below…
“Please post anonymously. My wedding is in 3 weeks. My fiancee and my mother had a fight. On the first day we visited my fiancee’s house. They told us that her parents were not married.
That if I really want to marry their daughter, I should sponsor their wedding first. What I have done. I spent about 1.2 million to organize a small wedding ceremony for my fiancée’s parents.
My mother is still mad about this but she saw how much I love her, she shut up. Now they gave us an exorbitant list. The clothes of my fiancée and her parents are 3.8 million. What they have planned for food. Kitchen and food are 2.4 million and others.
My mom got mad but because she doesn’t want to embarrass anyone, my mom called my fiancee outside. My mother told him that the food was too expensive. That she (my mother) will take care of it. Just to cut Our goal is 200 guests.
My fiancée told my mom to mind her own business. That it’s her wedding and that she (the fiancée) doesn’t need any body to intervene. My mother asked her how much she contributed to help. My fiancée whistled and left. Mom walked into the living room where we were all sitting, grabbed her bag and stormed off.
My older sister chased her and ended up not coming back. My mother told my older sister what had happened. My older sister called me and told me and asked that my fiancée call my mom and apologize. I told my fiancée and she got angry and said over her dead body.
Now the whole family supports my mother, including my father. They said if I married her they would disown me. The woman refused to apologize. She even says I’m a mama’s boy if I choose to provide for my family.
My trad and my wedding are respectively in 3 weeks and 4 weeks. Every plan is on hold and the bride said she doesn’t care. What can I do in all of this?
