Bride-To-Be ‘Humiliated’ After Groom Tells Her She Cannot Wear White As She Isn’t ‘Pure’
A bride-to-be was left feeling humiliated and distraught as her wedding day draws closer, as her man told her he thinks she isn’t fit to wear a white dress.
Her fiancé made a post on Reddit to explain why he made that choice, saying he told his future bride that his family is against the idea of her wearing white as she has had other men in her life before she met him.
The post read:
“So me (32M) and my soon to be wife (23F) are planning to get married in a few months.
“I come from a very religious household with strong Christian beliefs and one of the traditions in my family is if the woman getting married isn’t still a virgin they shouldn’t wear a white dress on their wedding day.”
According to the man, his mother asked about his fiancé’s dating history before she was even introduced to her.
He went on to say:
“My family knows my soon to be wife wasn’t a virgin when I met her because my mum asked me when I started dating her if she was pure, and I was honest and told her she had boyfriends before she met me.”
He then said that his bride-to-be was crushed when he told her.
“My wife was really upset when I asked her if she could wear a coloured dress on our wedding day but she agreed, so we’re looking at getting glittery blue dress instead.”
Unsurprisingly, the bride-to-be now has second thoughts about whether she should go on with the marriage at all.
The man wrote:
“Now she’s saying she won’t marry me because she’s too humiliated by the whole situation, but I really don’t see how it’s a big deal.”
Displeased Reddit users also shared their thoughts on the situation.
One person wrote:
“Making her parade down the aisle in something so ridiculous it’s like you’re trying to pin a giant scarlet letter on her.
“I think if you have such a poor opinion of her and want to cause her public embarrassment you should do her a favour and break up now.”
“This is sick, and I can’t believe your girlfriend stayed with you after this.”
And a third person added:
“This is not a Christian tradition, nor is it a modern tradition. There is no ‘Christian colour’ for virginity in marriage or anything else.
“Biblically, unmarried/virgin women wore multi-coloured robes.”
