“My fiancé (31 male) and I (25 female) are getting married soon,” she wrote in the original post.

“There wasn’t much we disagreed about during the planning of the wedding, other than the food. Me and my family are vegan and there are so many reasons we have chosen this lifestyle and one of them is that we have had health issues in the past.

“My fiancé and his family are the complete opposite. They are hardcore meat eaters, which is obviously fine with me.”

She said she wanted to add four or five vegan options to the menu, but her fiancé disagreed, saying it was “a waste of money” and “not real food.”

“I refused to argue about it and said it was final,” she wrote.

“I found out the other day that he had eliminated all vegan options and removed them completely from the menu behind my back. I cooked. I called him at work but he kept hanging up.

“I went straight to his place of work and confronted him there and just freaked out. He was stunned to see me. He first said it was his mom’s idea, then he said to go home because I’m making a scene at the office.”

The woman described how the fight then continued at home, where her fiancé “defended himself by saying I somehow got him to do this after I kept wiping his thoughts and inputs and refusing to give his.” accommodate family”.

“But there were LOTS of meat dishes. Why don’t I get four or five vegan options? if i pay for it He screamed that it was his wedding too, not (just) my family’s,” she wrote.

“She also pointed out how I kept saying ‘I paid for this,’ saying that technically this isn’t just my money, it’s mine and his because we’re getting married. She suggested I get smarter and get rid of the “my money, I paid for it” mentality,” she wrote.

“She finally mentioned how ‘bad’ this whole situation makes me look and said that she and her son had already offered a number of compromises, which I declined and decided to make it my ‘strange’ hill on which.” i would die

“She said that not only was her son upset, but so were she and ‘the family’ after hearing about it, and suggested that I just agree to her compromise and be done with it.”

The post drew more than 3300 comments from Reddit users who were appalled by the story.

“For God’s sake don’t marry that man,” one wrote.

“What better way to start a marriage than making sure the bride has nothing to eat on her wedding day?” said another.

“Are you sure you want to marry this man and his family? They have absolutely no respect for you and yours,” wrote a third.

The bride has since posted a second update to say their conversation “didn’t go well” and the wedding was called off.

“Realizing that even my partner thinks it’s okay to override my opinions and decisions just because he puts others and their opinions ahead of me was really upsetting and not something that could be overlooked,” she said.

“I gave him the ring back and called it all off. I just couldn’t imagine living like walking on eggshells for his family anymore and basically letting him override my opinion and have the final say no matter what.

“Marriage is about compromise and he has nothing to lose here, but he chose to do this to me and my family.”

Many praised the decision.

“Nice for you! Marriage is about compromise and it doesn’t sound like your ex is keen on compromising or even giving you the say. This isn’t a partnership,” one said.

Another added: “You made the right decision. Your ex isn’t ready to get married if he has to resort behind your back to food options at your own wedding. He has a lot to do growing up.”
