A woman shared her troubling wedding dress dilemma on Reddit’s “Off My Chest” thread. She had been with her fiancé, Ryan, for six years and had been engaged for eight months. Ryan surprised her by asking her not to wear a white dress for their wedding, which she had always envisioned. She initially thought it was related to his artistic side and ignored it. However, tension arose when she finally bought her white dress and Ryan became explosive upon learning the color.
Ryan believed that brides should only wear white if they were “pure,” and he questioned her choice based on her previous relationship. This led to a heated argument between Ryan, his mother, and the woman. Despite seeking support from his mother, she ended up siding with the woman. The confrontation left Ryan in tears, but he remained steadfast in his belief that her wearing white would deceive their wedding guests.
The woman was deeply disturbed by Ryan’s actions and began to question their future together. She found it perplexing that Ryan, who was not particularly religious, was so fixated on her past and her loss of virginity before they even met. She vented her frustrations and sought understanding from others.
In a later update, the woman revealed that she had ended her engagement and was going on her first date in six years. She sought advice on what attire to wear. Commenters suggested that she wear red, as a symbol of her newfound freedom.
The story sparked discussion among readers about whether the woman made the right decision in ending her engagement. Many empathized with her and criticized Ryan’s outdated beliefs and double standards. Overall, the woman’s experience highlighted the importance of open communication and compatibility in relationships.
