She asked Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum for advice. Her sister Jenny is getting married and chose their other sister Maddie to be the maid of honor. Jenny gave Maddie a plus-one but refused to give the Reddit poster an extra invite. Now the family is feuding because of the ordeal.
“During discussions about who will be invited, it was revealed Maddie will be given a plus-one and I will not. At the time, Maddie was single. She now is back together with her on-again-off-again boyfriend who our family greatly dislikes (he tried to get her to drink and drive with me as a passenger when I was 15, treats her badly, is rude, etc.). I have been with my boyfriend for almost two years now. My family doesn’t get together except for weddings and funerals, and I live out of state, so Jenny’s wedding is possibly the only time my boyfriend would get to meet most of my family until someone dies.”
The poster’s father also couldn’t understand why her boyfriend didn’t receive an invitation.
“When my father asked why my boyfriend wasn’t invited, Jenny said she ‘just doesn’t know him,’ as well as [saying] comments about my relationship being ‘less important’ because we’re young and ‘will break up anyways’ (despite Jenny dating her now-fiancé when she was my age). My dad even went so far as to offer to pay for my boyfriend’s meal at the wedding, but Jenny still refuses to give me a plus-one. Instead, she listed my boyfriend as ‘number one on the waitlist’ in case anyone doesn’t RSVP.”
Reddit posters did not approve of Jenny’s decision.
“Jenny is being really inconsiderate,” one person said.
“Frankly, that’s just rude,” another added.
“Your feelings are valid,” a user wrote.
