In a recent Reddit post, a user found himself embroiled in a wedding-related dispute with his atheist fiancée. Here’s the full story.
He Dreamt of a Grand Wedding
Harry’s religious upbringing had instilled in him a vision of a grand wedding ceremony, complete with a church setting, a choir, and, importantly, an ordained minister.
The Dream Changed
As he fell in love with his atheist fiancée, his wedding aspirations evolved to a more intimate affair in the countryside, surrounded by their closest friends and family.
He Wanted to Have a Pastor
Yet, the desire to have a pastor, or a family friend, officiate their wedding persisted.
His Fiancée Didn’t Like It
However, Harry’s fiancée was less than enthusiastic about the idea.
She Was an Atheist
Her strong atheistic stance and her family’s aversion to religion contributed to her reluctance.
Things Took a Turn
The couple’s discussions on the topic quickly escalated into heated arguments, with both parties feeling their emotions running high. Harry tried to reason with his fiancée, hoping to find common ground.
He Gave His Reasons
He highlighted that the pastor was a cherished family friend, making the gesture even more meaningful to him.
She Didn’t Agree
But his fiancée remained steadfast, refusing to engage in a conversation about the matter. Despite Harry’s efforts, it seemed that the mere notion of incorporating religion into their special day was a non-negotiable for his partner.
The Boiling Point
The confrontation reached a boiling point when Harry questioned why it mattered so much to his fiancée, given that he had not actively practiced his faith in years.
His Fiancée Retaliated
This comment struck a chord with his fiancée, who retaliated, expressing her family’s aversion to religious elements at the wedding and how it would make them uncomfortable.
He Snapped at Her
In a moment of frustration, Harry snapped back, “If your family actually loves you, they wouldn’t care who it was at your wedding.”
She Stormed Off
Then the couple just stared at each other for a moment and she called him a jerk and stormed off.
Had He Gone Too Far?
Now Harry feels bad about what happened and took to Reddit to ask whether he was in the wrong.
Redditors Shared Their Thoughts
More than a hundred comments poured in saying that Harry was in the wrong. One Reddit user wrote, “I don’t get why you suddenly want a pastor and a church when you haven’t set foot in a church for ages.”
“Your wedding is about the love between the two of you, not how it looks to other people. If you can’t compromise when you KNEW your fiancée was an atheist, why are you even bothering to marry?”
Forcing His Religion on Her?
Another Redditor added, “You have known she is not religious and does not believe in religion, and you have been completely ok with that. Now, you want to force your religion on her.”
“It’s Also Her Wedding”
A third Reddit user commented, “It’s also her wedding. Why should she have to be married in the name of a deity she doesn’t believe in?”
