This woman justified her decision saying that people would only focus on the man in a wheelchair whenever they saw her wedding photos.
A woman was left shocked because her sister did not invite her husband, who is in a wheelchair to her wedding. That was because she didn’t want him in any of the pictures. Understandably, she was left of.fended by this. So, the woman told the bride-to-be that she wouldn’t be attending her big day after all. Instead of being understanding of the situation, her furious family ended up blaming her for upsetting her sister. That’s the reason why she took to Reddit to ask strangers if she was in the wrong here.
The user who goes by the name FungalBroth wrote: “My sister is getting married next month. My husband and I were both planning on going but when we got the invitation it was only for me. When I called my sister and asked about it she said my husband was, of course, fine to come but she requested that he not be in any family photos. My husband is in a wheelchair. I’ve been married to him for 8 years. He has been in a wheelchair since he was 16 and my family has always ever known him to be in his chair.”
The bridezilla craved attention to such an extent that she wasn’t ready to share it with her brother-in-law. “Apparently my sister doesn’t want him in any of her wedding photos because she is afraid that he’ll take attention away from her because he is ‘different.’ This woman justifies this by saying when people come over and see our family photo they always ask about him because he’s the only one that is in a wheelchair so he stands out. She says she wants to be the main focus in her photos.”
This left this Reddit user furious who went on to give her sister a piece of her mind. She noted: “I was livid. I went off on her and told her she was being a selfish bridezilla. I told her we wouldn’t be coming,” . But after all, what she didn’t expect was how her family responded to her sister’s childish demands. “I’ve been getting calls from parents and relatives telling me I need to apologize to my sister because now she’s upset… I’m angry at them for thinking it’s OK to leave my husband out of family photos because of his disability.”
What’s more heartbreaking is that her husband was ready to attend the wedding and not be in the pictures, if it helped manage the situation. She expressed: “My husband hates being a burden on people and he says he’s fine with not being in the photos. Which made me even angrier because now he feels bad about himself for something I feel is unwarranted,”. Finally, she posed the big questions: “Am I the a**hole if I don’t support my sister’s big day because of this? My husband says we should be there for family even if he can’t be in the photos. My family says I need to apologize. But I feel like this is an issue I need to fight for. Am I wrong?”
The post attracted a lot of comments from strangers who gave their two cents about the matter.
“You know what’s hilarious? The bride could do a pbotoshoot of them all sitting and then he wouldn’t stand out, if it bothered her that much.”
“NTA [Not the a**hole] at all. This is ABSOLUTELY an issue that you need to fight for. Your sister wants to exclude your husband for no other reason than his wheelchair, and that’s unacceptable. She is being a bridezilla, for sure, and your AH family members are backing her up. Don’t feel one ounce of guilt for her. That’s just freaking awful, and she needs to get over herself,”
How about you? What do you think?
