The bride put ‘no kids’ on the invite hoping her fiancé would take the hint. She went on to call the baby “his mistake” in the post.
A bride kicked things off when she posted a question on Facebook, that also circulated the Reddit sphere, about how she could get her fiancé to not bring his own child to their wedding. While it is totally ok to not want to have kids, love kids or even have them at your wedding, Redditors slammed the woman for not being accepting of her fiancé’s child.
The Facebook post read: How do I tell my fionce I don’t want his daughter at our wedding? I put ‘no kids’ on the invites so I thought he’d get the point, but he keeps mentioning her being there??
Reddit users just couldn’t digest the post with one user going, “Omg pls let this not be for real!! How does she talk about her fiance’s kid like that?? Omg, this makes me want to cry.” Another user went all out on the woman, posting: I mean, THE NERVE that a man thought the literal most important human being in his life should be at one of the most important days of both of their lives. He’s gaining a miserable witch of a wife and his poor little girl is gaining a miserable witch of a step-mom, how fun for everyone!
After facing negative comments, the woman felt the need to update and justify her post but only ended up making it worse – by referring to the 3-year-old kid as a “crotch goblin” and that she was “his mistake, not hers.” She then went on to say the kid was “needy asf” and made “everything about her”. Redditors went crazy on the updated post as they took potshots at her; some funny, some vile, with a lot of references to Cinderella’s stepmom
While most Redditors urged the fiancé to make his escape while he could, few called out the groom for marrying a woman who didn’t care for his kid. The Reddit post has already seen over 3300 interactions.
One user said: “I’m pretty childfree and I think this is absolutely abhorrent. If you don’t want to be in a partners kid’s life, don’t be with that person at all! When I was single I had a strict no dating parents policy for this reason.” Meanwhile, another user said, “She’s 3… of COURSE, she makes everything about her … that’s all she knows. This marriage is gonna end quick or last way too long and be horrible the entire time.”
The bride had the support of ‘child-free’ people when it came to having a wedding without kids but everyone felt excluding the partner’s kid was a complete no-no. One of the Redditors said it was people like the bride that was giving childfree people a bad reputation.
An ‘un-evil stepmother’ provided some perspective to the argument and felt it was unfair to trash the bride for wanting a day for the couple and pointed out that the real villain in this story was the groom who proposed to the girl without really exploring the dynamics between the bride and his kid.
