Bride furious her fiancé won't get a second job to fund €70k wedding
"What happened to 'happy wife, happy life'?"
A bride has come under fire after she insisted her fiancé get a second job to be able to pay for their €70,000 wedding.
She also said that she had quit her job as "wedding planning was taking up so much time."
The woman's admission was initially shared on Facebook, before it was reposted onto Reddit's Bridezilla forum.
“HELP I NEED ADVICE. My fiancé and I are having lots of issues right now, we can’t stop fighting and I don’t know what to do.
“I quit my job because wedding planning was taking up so much time, and my fiancé is refusing to get a second job.
“He doesn’t understand that I don’t have time to get ready for work, drive to work, be somewhere else all day and drive home.
“I need to be HOME to plan this wedding. I’m trying to find a job from home but it is difficult.
“I asked him to get a second job and he won’t. It really pisses me off because we are spending $80,000 on this wedding and he keeps saying we should spend less.
“UH, HELLO, NO. This is MY WEDDING I have been dreaming of since I was little and I REFUSE to have anything but my dream wedding.
“How can I convince him to work a second job to pay for this? What happened to 'happy wife, happy life'?????????”
Reddit users weren't particularly sympathetic to bride-to-be, with many people pointing out the red flags in her post.
"I can't believe someone needs to spend so much time planning their wedding that they have to quit their job," one person wrote.
"This can’t be real...can it? I really hope it’s not," someone else commented.
"If you have the money and want to spend it on your big day, good for you. But demanding your partner work 2 jobs to afford it (especially because she doesn't want to work) is crazy," another person added.
"Well, that marriage won't last. Hope the guy gets out before they even marry by the looks of how self-centred the bride is," a different person said.
“This isn't just a red flag. This is a strobe light with a few fog horns attached to it," another user advised.
