This user was asked by her sister to pay a huge sum of money for her wedding. When she told her sister no, everyone started treating her like she was being a snob!
OP (Original Poster) is married to the love of her life. But aside from lucking out in the love department, OP’s husband also happened to be very rich.
She wrote, “He’s very wealthy, and so is his side of the family.”
It’s Already Covered
When they were preparing for the wedding, OP’s parents had offered to help “chip in” for the ceremony. However, OP declined since her husband was able to pay for the entire ceremony easily.
Aside from that, because OP’s husband and her in-laws were so wealthy, they were able to have a “very big, extravagant wedding.”
Sparing No Expense
When OP got married, her sister was one of her bridesmaids. Given all the savings she had because her husband and her in-laws were funding the wedding, she had some money to spare.
So, since she was financially able, she generously paid for her sister’s bridesmaid dress and everything else she needed.
Worked to the Bone
OP was committed to making her wedding the absolute “best day ever.” She spent countless hours organizing and planning the wedding.
Money was no barrier, and so she was also able to “spend a lot” to ensure her wedding came out perfect.
OP’s sister helped with planning her “hen weekend” as well. However, her sister merely helped with the planning phase but did not pitch in financially.
What Friends Are For
OP got the most help from her best friend and maid of honor. She invested far more time and energy into helping OP plan everything out, unlike her own sister.
Love in Bloom
Now, OP’s sister has found a man she loves and wants to marry. She was thrilled for her but would soon find out something big awaited her.
It turns out that her sister had an outrageous demand!
Time to Pay Up
Out of nowhere, OP’s sister demanded that her husband pay for her wedding. She felt she was entitled to $26,000 from her brother-in-law!
What Are You Thinking?
OP loved her sister, but she had never heard a more outrageous request than this.
She firmly told her sister that what she wanted was “ridiculous.” OP also suggested that she either try to pay for her own wedding or ask her parents if they could help.
Spread the Wealth
Her sister couldn’t contain her rage when OP refused to pay for her wedding.
Her sister claimed that OP’s wedding had been “100 times more expensive.” On top of that, she felt that since OP had the money, she ought to pay; otherwise, OP “wasn’t being fair.”
Angry Mob With Pitchforks
Ever since then, OP has been harassed on a near-daily basis. Her sister’s friends and fiancé have said that OP is being “snobby” and treating her sister “badly.”
OP found herself the center of gossip and hate, all because she won’t pay “anything toward their wedding” when her sister had helped out “so much” with OP’s. However, in truth, OP’s sister had barely helped, putting in minimum effort.
Unwanted Text Messages
OP is even plagued by text messages from her sister’s friends, calling her an “awful person.”
One of the text messages went so far as to state how OP’s sister was marrying her husband for the “right reasons and not for money,” clearly insinuating that OP had only married her husband for his wealth, which wasn’t true at all.
The Community’s Pieces of Advice
Redditors were quick to come to OP’s side and assure her she wasn’t in the wrong for refusing to pay for her sister’s wedding and that, in fact, her sister was being overly demanding.
One user said, “‘I had the money and wasn’t being fair.’ She should have landed a richer husband. Block her friends from your phone, email, and social media. They have no business badmouthing you. Not the a**hole. You and your husband don’t owe her anything.”
“Your sister thinks you’re a gold-digging a**hole—who owes her—and that’s what she’s told others. And clearly green-lighted them attacking you. This is a serious breach of trust. You need to have a serious re-setting of boundaries with her,” said another Redditor.
Envious and Entitled
More users jumped to OP’s defense, saying that if anyone’s wrong here, it would be no other than OP’s sister, her fiancé, and her friends.
“OP, you are not the a**hole. Your sister and her fiance are envious and entitled. If you give in to them now, you will be paying for it for the rest of your relationship with the greedy pair,” commented one user.
Another Redditor chimed in, saying, “I’m very sorry you’re going through this. You are not the a**hole. Your sister is, though. She sounds very entitled, and so does her husband. They need to live within their means. Just because your means are bigger doesn’t mean you should have to give them some of it.”
Do you think OP should have paid for her sister’s wedding? Was OP’s sister being entitled and outrageous with her demands?
