A bridezilla turned to the internet for advice on how to ban her fiancé's daughter from their wedding and people were not having any of it.
Despite the ultra-romantic packaging weddings come in, every single one of them is the perfect recipe for drama. Once you get over the "OMG, I'm getting married!" high, you realize you're standing bang in the middle of a minefield of decisions. From the guest list to seating arrangements to the oh-so-overrated bride's outfit, and picking out who gets to be in the wedding, the couple finds themselves facing a huge mountain of decisions to make. One wrong move and Boom! Game over. It's incredibly stressful and can easily drive couples to consider calling the whole thing off just to get rid of the drama.
On the other hand, the wedding planning process is also one of the most effective ways to test how strong the relationship is. After all, you're entering into a lifetime contract to stand by each other for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health. How well/badly your future spouse handles the wedding preparations, the decisions they make, and the way they treat your loved ones in the days leading up to the wedding speaks volumes about them. While some couples come out stronger on the other side, some break things off before it's too late, and others fail to see the red flags staring them in the face.
Last year the internet spotted a giant red flag with a ring on her finger, aka bridezilla, when she took to Facebook with an epic rant against her fiancé's 3-year-old daughter. When the unidentified woman's post was later shared on a wedding shaming group on the platform, netizens couldn't believe the groom couldn't see neon warning signs before him. Why? Because the bride was seeking advice on how to ban her soon-to-be step-daughter from the wedding. Yep. She didn't want her fiancé's baby girl at one of the biggest days of her dad's life.
The post—which eventually found its way to Reddit—reads: How do I tell my fionce [sic] 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?? As you can imagine, Redditors were utterly flabbergasted by the woman's atrocious dilemma. No red flag exists that is bigger and brighter than this one, user Kittyplayzz2 noted. u/Chaosmusic kind disagreed, writing: This moved beyond flags. This is a big, red baseball bat pummeling the groom in the head and he still isn't getting the hint.
Similar sentiments seem to have been shared by commenters on the woman's original post as she came back with a fiery explanation, which—no surprise—only made things worse for her. Bridezilla wrote: She's three. I am marrying him not his crotch goblin. That's his mistake, not mine. I don't want her there because she's needy asf and makes everything about her AND I said no f***ing kids! If you don't have [anything] nice to say or any advice then SCROLL ON!
Her edit only further solidified her position as the worst fiancee/future step-mother/human being ever while many Redditors pointed out that the groom is also to be blamed if he hadn't yet noticed how his wife-to-be feels about his child. Pointing out that the woman's attitude sets up a bad environment for the groom's 3-year-old, u/SolarDragon4114 wrote: She isn't just becoming his wife only. She will be the stepmother of that 3-year-old. This even shows bad judgment on the groom's part. Knowing that his fiancee doesn't like his daughter then why would he still want to marry her. I would've dumped her as soon as I know that she wouldn't get along with my daughter. Marrying her could even put his daughter into danger. What will prevent her from one day killing his daughter? Or at the least abusing her to no end. Making life a living hell. Then in turn that could cause his own daughter to hate him. Regardless of the outcome, it is not a wise move to marry such a woman.
