The term “shotgun wedding” is outdated (because honestly, in this day and age I don’t think we should care if people decide to start their families before or after or they never get married.
That said, the family in question obviously feels differently – and they wanted their non-pregnant and already-engaged daughter to give up her dream wedding venue so they could marry off the expecting daughter under the gun.
The woman and her fiancee had even agreed to a three-year engagement so they could have the venue they wanted, so when she told her little sister that no, she wouldn’t give it up, the sister – and the whole family – pitched a toddler-sized fit.
It’s caused a rift in the family, with the original poster’s fiancee angry enough to disinvite the pregnant sister from their wedding and the family threatening to boycott altogether.
What. A. Mess.
Based on another post with more information, it sounds like their parents have long enabled the bratty behavior of the younger sister, and the father-to-be is on the original bride’s side, too.
Her in-laws, as well as most of the internet, are on her side – she’s definitely NTA (not the a**hole) in our eyes.
What do you think? I say good riddance to bad rubbish, though that’s obviously easier said when it’s not my family.
I hope they find a way to work it out going forward!
