She had a very close relationship with her dad and valued it a lot, and wanted her dad to walk her down the aisle, like most brides.
It's every daughter's dream to be walked down the aisle by her father. One woman was angry when her fiance refused to let her Dad walk her down the aisle. She took to Reddit to ask the community if she was wrong to brand her fiance 'selfish' for refusing her to live out her dream. Reddit user, u/throwaway569070, took to a subreddit and asked if she was wrong "for calling my fiance selfish for refusing to let my dad walk me down the aisle?" The 23-year-old woman, and her fiance, a 26-year-old male, had been together for two years. She came from a small family with just her "dad and...older sister." She had a very close relationship with her dad and valued it a lot.
"My dad has always been a single parent devoting his life for me and my sister and working over 14+ jobs in the past 6 years to provide for us. I love my dad and we have the best relationship anyone could hope for," she explained in the post. Unfortunately, her fiance did not happen to get along with her father. "They have different opinions on so many things," wrote the woman. "For example, my fiance one time suggested to my dad to sell the truck he has because it's been sitting there for years. My dad got offended because this is my grandfather's truck and he has no money to get it fixed. Another example is my fiance got mad at my dad at a party for talking about his struggle after my mom's death and accused him of collecting sympathy points but dad said that he always talks about it casually."
She went on to describe their most recent argument regarding the finances of the wedding. "Their recent disagreement was when my dad refused to give my fiance money to contribute to the wedding. My fiance complained but I said that my dad isn't obligated to pay for the wedding," the user wrote. She added that her father "refused to contribute because he has no money, he can not afford to pay."
To this, her fiance asked her to do something which she just couldn't. "My fiance told me to look for 'someone else' to walk me down the aisle and asked why," she continued. "He said that my dad refused to help with the wedding and he should be grateful he's still invited." She argued with him and also added that "just like any bride I want my dad to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day."
The finance didn't take this well and accused her of ruining his mood and upsetting him on the wedding day. She then "called him selfish for wanting to take away the moment I always dreamed of over his disagreements with dad." She added, "It's not fair given that, me and my dad are on great terms. He yelled at me for calling him selfish although it's our wedding not just mine and said that I clearly don't give a hoot if he's uncomfortable, then walked out. He's fuming and is insisting I'm being inconsiderate and projecting on him when I called him selfish."
Many users commented on her situation and seemed to not only support her but also shared their perspectives on how he might not be the one for her. User Nice_Butterfly_6903 empathized and concluded that the fiance could be controlling. User BringMeInfo also added by suggesting that she better reconsider the entire idea of marrying him.
