“Wedding planning has gone well so far [a] few things about which he and I quarreled as the site and flower girl, “the OP revealed.” Now we have quarreled over my wedding dress. “

The woman revealed that since she was young, she had dreamed of having her “own beautiful wedding dress.” She can afford it, but her boyfriend thinks it’s not okay to “waste” a few thousand for a dress she’ll wear only once.

The OP admitted he could have a point, but she responded by telling him she was paying a “typical” price for a wedding dress. And in her opinion, it’s “once in a lifetime, so why not make sure it’s special?”

But the woman’s boyfriend was not entirely “convinced,” and he suggested she rent a wedding dress instead of buying one directly. He said she was “irresponsible with money” and he mentioned how much cash she had already set aside “for” renting a face “(he means makeup) and wearing” fake “hair (he means extensions).”

However, the OP has a “vision” of how she wants to look on her wedding day, and she believes it is her “right” as the bride. She ended up buying her wedding dress, but only a day later, she realized it was missing from the closet.

“I was scared,” said the OP, “but he told me he returned it and got the money. I was shocked, I asked him why he did it, and he said he thought the dress was ridiculously expensive.” and that was a waste of money and again suggested that I go and rent one. “

Things didn’t end there, though. The woman confessed that she “exploded and exploded” on her boyfriend, which she had not done before. He even took a few steps back and told her to “calm down.” She told him he didn’t have the right because she was the one who paid for the dress.

“He was upset and said that there is no‘ I myself pay for it ’in a wedding and that my attitude sets the tone for what dynamics we will have in our wedding,” she continued. “He went on to say that I should expect him to pay for everything while I keep ‘my money’ or spend it irresponsibly (but I never tell him how to spend his money). I replied that he had no say in how I spend my any kind of money. “

The woman’s partner told her she should “grow the f ** k up” and stop with the “dream wedding cliché.”

She said he left and called her mother, who was also involved, chewing out the OP, adding that she would not let her ruin her son’s “financial stability” with his business with money. She also advised the OP to rent a dress or get cheaper and go on, but the Redditor “refused.”

When it comes to the couple’s economy, they have an agreement they are separated with “consideration of joining them” within a year or two of marriage and when her partner has decided on her new job. However, her partner said if the OP continues it, he will “reconsider” that.

In another comment, the woman revealed, “money has never been a problem.” However, she has no clue why he is “still stretching” over it. He wants to spend less, even for other things not related to the wedding. He even reduced food and “monthly purchases like electronics and furniture that sound excessive to me. What bothers me most about it is that he does it with his and my money.”

She also added that her boyfriend still has the money from the dress, and he said he will return it to her after they come to a solution.

Redditor Reactions: Red Flag Wedding.

More than 4,000 comments came from the virus situation, and people fully support the woman while beating her husband for returning her dress.

Redditor thinks the woman should call the authorities about the man “who stole several thousand dollars from her instead of marrying him, but that’s just me”, adding that the theme of the wedding is “red flags”.

The wives will be dressed in red, “they said.” The groom will have a red suit. And the corridor will be lined with ever-larger red flags until she reaches the altar which is in fact just a tent made of one giant red flag.

“The bridesmaids will be dressed in red,” they said. “The groom will have a red suit. And the corridor will be lined with ever-larger red flags until she reaches the altar which is actually just a tent made of one giant red flag.”

Another user thinks the OP is not to blame, adding that they don’t even care if the dress was $ 10 billion, a person doesn’t return a bride’s wedding dress without talking about it first.

“And last I checked, your mother-in-law is not your accountant and shouldn’t say about how you spend your money,” they added. “If your boyfriend wants to discuss budget matters as a couple, that’s great! That’s the right and responsible thing to do. He gets angry and then crying to mom isn’t that.”

Some people have directly asked the woman to leave her future husband because of the stunt. “NTA [not the a**hole], throw away his a **, “Redditor said.” He will want to rule everything after you get married, including what you do with your money. Run away from this mess, or you’ll regret it later. “

Another added, “NTA, he’s incredibly controlling and reluctant of your opinions. It’s your money and an incredibly special day. I wouldn’t marry someone who would disrespect me like that and you shouldn’t either.”

Someone certainly sets the tone for what this wedding will be like, and if I were you, I would run in the opposite direction of all those red flags he is waving.

Reddit comment

One Redditor said they would make sure that if they were in the woman’s shoes, the man could not access her financial information, insisting, “NTA. Someone is definitely setting the tone for what this wedding will be like, and if I were. , I would run in the opposite direction of all those red flags he is waving. “

Some users even labeled the situation as a financial abuse, and one such user called the woman “crazy” if she married the man.

“This is just the beginning of his financial abuse,” they said. “The fact that he kept your money is amazing. Lots and lots of red flags here, darling. Coming to a deal means giving in to what he wants. This is your future, so be careful.”

Newsweek contacted Redditor @ Sealine5033 for comment.
