The son had decided to leave his parents out of his wedding, allegedly out of fear that they would ‘embarrass’ his partner’s family. This led to their unexpected response.

The Upsetting Wedding Exclusion

The parents were shocked when their son disinvited them from his wedding. He stated his fiancé’s family believed they were ‘not suitable’ to attend.

This exclusion was especially upsetting to the groom’s parents, who had provided significant financial support for their son, including a rent-free home.

The father decided to sell the house. He expressed the sentiment through a Reddit post, “Since he doesn’t want us in his new life, he has to get out.”

Financial Support and a Free Home

The parents had offered considerable financial support to their son, including a second home for him to use while attending college.

They took on the responsibility of property taxes and maintenance costs, while their son, who paid no rent, was responsible only for the utilities.

Tension Arose
