It All Kicked off When Her Husband-To-Be Refused To Accept Her Maid of Honor’s Polyamorous Relationship

A bride-to-be drew fire from Redditors recently when she revealed that she decided not to invite her maid of honor’s poly partners to her wedding. It was just too much for her new husband’s conservative parents to bear! Here is the full story.

She’s Excited About Getting Married

OP is a 25-year-old woman in the middle of preparing for her wedding to her 32-year-old fiancé. Her 25-year-old best friend and maid of honor has helped her every step along the way.

The maid of honor has been in a relationship with a now-24-year-old man for five years. In that time, they have added two more partners to their relationship, a 27-year-old man and a 22-year-old nonbinary individual.

OP has never quite understood how her friend made the complicated, multi-person relationship work, but it didn’t really matter. They were besties and always would be.

Or at least that’s what OP thought until her future husband came to her just before they were set to send out invitations.

Her Maid of Honor Is Like a Sister to Him

Her fiancé explained to OP that he loved her maid of honor like a sister, but he wasn’t thrilled about her poly relationship. And, since his family was extremely conservative, he knew they wouldn’t understand at all.

So OP’s fiancé told her that he didn’t want to invite the maid of honor’s three partners to their wedding. He wanted to avoid having to explain their love life to his family…

OP had already reserved four spots for her maid of honor’s group at the wedding, and she was surprised by her future hubby’s request. But she wanted to make him happy, so she agreed.

To make matters worse, OP didn’t have the heart to tell her friend the truth, so she kept it to herself.

But He Didn’t Think His Parents Would Approve of Her Polyamorous Relationship

But when the invites went out, the maid of honor called OP right away. She wanted to know why her invite didn’t include a plus-three for her partners.

That’s when OP had no choice but to break the news that her best friend’s partners would not be invited to the wedding. Her maid of honor went silent on the other end of the line, then just hung up.

It didn’t take long before the friend’s partners were on the phone, with one of them begging OP to reconsider.

He promised that the four guests would not act like they were in a relationship so they didn’t make anyone uncomfortable.

The Conversation Was Awkward To Say the Least

They just all cared for OP and the maid of honor, and they wanted to celebrate the wedding. But OP could hear the other partners in the background, and they weren’t quite as soft-spoken about their feelings.

OP stood her ground, though, and told her friend’s partners that they couldn’t come to the wedding. That ended the conversation for the moment, but her maid of honor texted the next day to say she wouldn’t be coming, either.

In a follow-up, OP said that she and her future husband spent some time talking through the situation afterwards, and both felt awful about it.

They ended up calling the maid of honor to apologize, and OP re-invited her and her three partners to the wedding. It took some coaxing, but they finally agreed to come.

Why Would He Ask His Future Wife To Stiff Her Maid of Honor?

OP isn’t sure the relationship will ever be the same, though, and she still feels mean for what she put her friend through.

Redditors wholeheartedly agree that OP and her fiancé were completely out of line in this situation.

They can’t believe that he would ask his future wife to stiff her maid of honor. They were even more shocked that OP agreed to his wishes in the first place.

So, what do you think of this story?

Should OP have just told her fiance from the get-go that she was inviting who she wanted to her wedding?

Or was there some compromise to be made that could have prevented this ugly situation?
