A bride-to-be has demanded that her fiance get a second job so she can focus on full-time wedding planning which she says requires all of her attention.
A bride-to-be has come under fire after she posted on Reddit asking for ways to convince her fiance to get a second job. The bride says she gave up work recently as planning their wedding was taking up all of her time but needs her future husband to take on extra work to fund the extravagant nuptials.
The bride says that she can’t understand why her fiance is refusing to find additional employment, especially when she has put so much effort in to planning their big day.
“I quit my job because wedding planning was taking up so much time,” she wrote in her post. “He doesn’t understand that I don’t have time to get ready for work, be somewhere else all day and drive home. I need to be HOME to plan this wedding.”
Despite her husband-to-be asking her to reduce costs so he doesn’t need to find another source of income, the bride says she won’t give up her $80,000 dream wedding.
“This is MY WEDDING that I have been dreaming of since I was little,” she said. “What happened to ‘happy wife, happy life’?!”
Missing The Point
The bride says that she is determined to find her fiance additional work whatever it takes, but admits that her persistence has put a strain on their relationship.
“We can’t stop fighting and I don’t know what to do!” she told the forum. “How can I convince him to get a second job to pay for this?”
Comments on the bride’s post suggested that her inability to compromise, and lack of concern for her fiance, could be a bad sign for things to come.
“This isn’t just a red flag,” wrote one forum user. “This is a strobe light with a few fog horns attached to it!”
“Did you read the post?” another asked. “She is having a WEDDING…the marriage is irrelevant.”
While we won’t deny that wedding planning can be time-consuming and stressful, we can’t help but feel that this bride has forgotten what a marriage is all about…
