The bride-to-be was branded ‘selfish’ after revealing she wants to ban her fiancé’s pregnant teenage sister from their wedding because she doesn’t want her to ‘take all the attention’.
Reddit user u/Altaccountbutt admitted on the “Am I the M**hole” subreddit that she was worried that a 17-year-old girl’s water would break at the ceremony, saying she and her husband-to-be got into a fight because she no longer wants to be invited his younger sister.
“My fiancé proposed a few months ago and we are getting ready to get married,” the 25-year-old explained. “We are currently compiling a guest list and will send out invitations in the next few months.”
She insisted that she “really” likes his little sister and is “really excited” to be her daughter-in-law, saying that they intended to invite her to the wedding.

Critics could not resist when they showered her with comments, calling her anything from “selfish” to “bride”.
“However, a few days ago we found out that she is pregnant and plans to have a baby,” she said. “Now I’m not going to sit here and shame her for her irresponsible actions or anything like that, but I felt it was very important.
“My family is very [religious] and I know they won’t be happy and it could ruin their time if they see a pregnant teenage girl at my wedding,” she added. “That, of course, is not so important.
The bride noted that she was “more worried” about the date of birth of a teenager, which comes two weeks after the wedding.
“I am concerned that pregnant women require a lot of care and [accommodation],’ she explained. “There is also the risk that her water will break at my ceremony and take all the attention away from me on my day.
“Call me selfish, but I feel that [my husband-to-be and I] should be the center of attention,” she added. “I don’t want to risk that she will give birth and require even more attention to be paid to me. So I don’t think it should be there.
No wonder her fiancé was “incredibly angry” when she told him she no longer wanted a teenager at their wedding because she was pregnant.
A number of commentators agreed that her fiancé should think twice before marrying her.
“He told me that I was acting like a complete ass by not inviting her because he was her little sister. I understand that they are very close, but this is a bad idea, ”she insisted, claiming that she was actually worried about the well-being of a teenager.
“Note, I don’t think a teenage girl nine months pregnant should be on her feet for a wedding this close to her due date,” she explained.
“He told me I was retreating and I should be ashamed of myself. Then he told his whole family about it, and they are all mad at me for suggesting it.”
The bride wanted to know if she was wrong, and critics couldn’t resist showering her in the comments with all sorts of swear words, from “selfish” to “bride”.
“This is a girl who is most likely already going through a lot of ostracism and problems and you seem to be aiming to be first in line to make things difficult for her,” wrote one person. “Be careful, because you’re showing some true (and disturbing) colors to your future husband and his in-laws.”
“All her excuses for excluding her sister are thinly veiled judgments about her pregnancy,” someone else remarked. ‘That’s disgusting.’
Another added: “If I were the groom, I would rethink the wedding. That level of selfishness would 100% make me think.”
