A WOMAN called off her wedding after her almost-mother-in-law confessed her son cheated on an ex-girlfriend.
The anonymous woman took to Reddit to express her heartache after the situation, explaining that her fiancé’s mother told her the truth after he was involved in a car accident and nearly died.
In her first post about the horrific incident, the anonymous woman wrote: “I feel like a horrible person.
“We are to be married in a small ceremony. I’ve been with my fiancé for six years, engaged for a year. The best years of my life.”
She then explained how her fiancé’s mother came in after his accident: “She’s religious and when my fiancé was between life and death she was worried about his sins so she told me he had me with him about 2 months ago an ex he had cheated on.
“She explained that it was because of the wedding and the stress of planning. Apparently I was both stressed and he was stressed.
“He had a weak moment, it was a one-time thing and he regretted it so much.”
However, the groom did not die and eventually left the hospital to stay with his parents while he got better.
The bride continued: “Now both the fiancé and his parents are talking about the fact that we can still get married on the date we have set. I feel terrible because I don’t want this.
“Our relationship was over the moment I found out about the cheating. I stayed because I loved him (still) and I wanted him to get better. I couldn’t break his heart while he recovers.”
Her mother-in-law has since told the woman that she made a mistake in revealing her son’s infidelity and that she “shouldn’t take advantage of what she said out of desperation”.
The bride-to-be returned to Reddit a few days later to provide an update on her situation:
“I started by telling my parents, who are paying for the wedding, what happened and that I was going to call off the wedding.
“Hopefully they can recover some of the amount they paid through their home insurance. I told them I will pay the rest of the damage.”
However, at this point, she still hadn’t told her fiancé that she knew about his cheating or that she was calling off the wedding.
She ended up having this conversation with him and wrote, “He’s been telling me all the things they’re desperate to say. he was stupid He wasn’t thinking. He was stressed. He was afraid. It didn’t mean anything. He regretted it.
“He didn’t want to tell me because it didn’t mean anything and he didn’t want to hurt me. I should give him a chance to prove himself and his loyalty. He can ask his parents to pay for the wedding. We can postpone the wedding indefinitely.
“I can take the apartment and he will live with his parents. As long as it takes me to forgive him.”
She added: “His mum called me to say she felt guilty because she didn’t advise him to get clean at first but later revealed his secret to me without his permission.
“She was disappointed that I took advantage of her moment of panic, but that she understands I’m hurt.”
She said: “None of them (including my parents) believe it’s really over, nor do I have the energy to prove my point. I just need some time to myself right now and some peace and quiet.”
Reddit users quickly sided with the woman, saying that she dodged a bullet and that cheating, if anything, was unacceptable.
One commenter wrote: “Mom was scared he was going to die so she tried to make his confession for him. It was weird and gross, and she tried to use his near-death experience to manipulate OP into condoning his cheating, which he didn’t even admit to himself.”
“He did it because he thought he could get away with it. Never consider staying with a scammer. It’s quite possible that this wasn’t the only time,” added a second.
