A bride-to-be recently reached out to the Reddit community, seeking advice over a conflict that erupted during her wedding planning. The disagreement, stemming from their different dietary preferences, led to a heated argument and has her questioning the future of their relationship. This is her story.
Preparing for Their Wedding
OP is a 25-year-old woman in the midst of preparing for her wedding. Her groom-to-be is a 31-year-old man.
They Agreed on All But the Catering
The happy couple agreed on just about everything as they were planning the ceremonies.
But OP and her fiancé just couldn’t see eye to eye on the food selection.
Vegan Vs Carnivore
OP and her family are vegans, while her fiancé and his family are all heavy meat eaters.
OP doesn’t mind if her man eats meat, but he apparently is not quite as accepting.
Her Man Wanted Meat
Right off the bat, the fiancé came up with his preferred menu for the wedding, and all the choices were loaded with animal products.
She Wanted Plenty of Options for the Vegans
OP wanted to add 4 or 5 vegan options so that her family would be able to eat and, more importantly, feel welcome.
Providing ANY Vegan Options Was a Waste of Money
But OP’s fiancé and his family didn’t want to add any vegan dishes at all.
They thought it would just be a waste of money over dishes that aren’t “real food.”
Salad Is More Than Enough for the Vegans, Right?
Besides, the fiancé argued, they were already having salad. That should be plenty for OP and her family to eat during the wedding.
She Put Her Foot Down
They went back and forth about it for a while, but OP finally put her foot down and said that they had to have vegan dishes.
It was the only way her guests could truly be comfortable in the wedding.
He Should Care
OP didn’t care if her fiancé didn’t understand the vegan lifestyle.
It Was the Healthier Option
She thought he should care, though, since a big part of her family’s motivation was to avoid health issues that had plagued earlier loved ones.
He Betrayed Her
So that was that, and the couple went about planning for their big day.
Then one day while working on wedding prep, OP found out her fiancé had called their caterer and removed all the vegan options from the menu, without even talking to her about it.
He Didn’t Respect Her
OP was livid and drove to her fiancé’s workplace.
She stormed into his office and completely flipped out about his deception and disregard for her feelings.
Mommy Told Him to Do It!
At first, OP’s fiancé said it had all been his mom’s idea.
Then he asked her to please go home and cool off because she was making a big scene at his place of employment.
OP did go home, and when her fiancé arrived later, they started fighting again.
He Had to Undermine Her as She Wouldn’t Do as He Said
He told her that it was her fault he had to go behind her back because she never listened to him and disregarded his input on everything.
Her Family Were the Ones Paying for Everything
At that point, OP reminded her fiancé that most of the menu was just as he had ordered, and that she only wanted to add a few vegan items.
OP also reminded him that her family was paying for everything, so she couldn’t imagine how he could object on the basis of cost.
His Mom Used It as a Chance to Criticize Her
Later on, the fiancé’s mom called OP to support her son’s point of view.
The older woman said that OP and her family always disregarded the groom-to-be’s opinion.
His Mom Thought She Should Be Grateful
Not only that, the fiancé’s mom said, but OP had been way out of line for causing a scene at her son’s work.
And she thought OP should be grateful for trying to save some money.
How Could She Trust Him After That?
OP is beyond frustrated with the whole incident.
She’s not thrilled that she caused a ruckus at her fiancé’s workplace, but she feels betrayed by his actions and wonders how much she can trust him.
Do You Really Want Her as a Mother-In-Law?
Reddit commenters almost unanimously support OP’s position in this situation.
They say that the fiancé and his mother are being super controlling, and many warn OP that this may be a preview of what her marriage would look like.
It’s a Huge Red Flag
Plenty of Redditors tell OP to just outright walk away from the relationship because they don’t think it will get any better.
He’s Clueless About Her Diet
Others are just shocked that they’re on the verge of getting married, yet the fiancé seems to be clueless about what sorts of food OP might eat.
