A bride has revealed her anger towards her mother-in-law after she shared a major announcement in the middle of her wedding day.
The 24-year-old took to Reddit to reveal the moment her mother-in-law, 42, asked to say “a few words”.
“Stupidly we figured she would talk about us at our wedding, so we never asked what she planned to say. Big mistake,” she said.
“She announced that she’s expecting a baby.”
The bride said that the moment was a “huge shock” and “completely took over the night”.
However the horror did not stop there.
The bride went on to say that she was also expecting and had planned to share the happy news in her speech but decided to ditch the idea as “everything felt a bit sour for me after that.”
She went on to say she “felt like the attention was taken away from us without our permission and it was so unfair to spring that on us.”
“Apparently I ruined my own wedding because I was obviously p—d off about the good news and that I was being ‘totally selfish’,” she said.
“It was my wedding day that was already ruined by a pandemic!”
She said her husband was on her side, along with other users who took to the comment section to support the woman.
“Wow, she could have at least asked your permission,” one person said.
In an updated post, the newlyweds revealed they had decided to cut ties with his family, after an attempt to smoot things over didn’t go well at all.
The mother “apologised immediately” and “started sobbing”, but still blamed the couple for ruining her pregnancy announcement, “so if anything we were both to blame”.
“Eventually my husband told her that he was really happy about the baby but that she should have asked us, and she pointed at me and said “she wouldn’t have let me” which just told us she knew EXACTLY what she was doing, and I have zero regrets now. We tried,” she wrote.
“We did not mention our pregnancy at all.
“She still doesn’t know, and we probably won’t tell her ourselves because she doesn’t deserve that.”
