She Bit Her Tongue When Her Mother’s Fiancée Called Her a Gold Digger, but She Lost It When They Expected Her to Pay for Their Lavish Wedding

A woman recently wrote online about how her mother’s fiancée accused her of being a gold-digger. But the biggest joke of all was when her mother asked her to foot the bill for their lavish wedding. Here’s what she had to say.

The woman wrote, “My mom is 56, her fiancée is 59, I’m 29, and my brother is 19.”

“About four months ago, my mom got engaged to her fiancée, Joseph,” he added. “He is a fairly nice guy, but we do have different takes on a lot of differing topics like politics, behaviors, and appropriate boundaries.”

Joseph doesn’t call before he comes to see the woman and her family. He’s also partial to the occasional controversial joke.

One of Joseph’s jokes is to accuse the woman of being a gold digger. While her husband makes a great salary, he actually earned less than the woman when they first met.

The woman texted her mother. She told her she didn’t like Joseph’s jokes, especially when he made them in front of other family members.

Message received?

It seemed Joseph understood that these jokes had to stop. He told the woman that they would, but they didn’t. The woman did her best to ignore the jibes and keep the peace.

Her mother’s and Joseph’s wedding was coming up. Her mother was putting money away, but Joseph was less bothered, saying, “Weddings are just something to make your wife happy, and no husband actually likes them.”

The woman wasn’t sure how her mother didn’t see his statements and behavior as a red flag. But she clearly didn’t, because as the wedding approached, she received a text saying, “Hi Sweetie! You know the wedding is coming up, and I was wondering when you were gonna help pay for it?”

The woman was shocked. When she’d married her husband, her mother hadn’t helped financially. Instead, her father paid her share. Besides, she’d never heard of children paying for their parent’s weddings.

She texted her mom to tell her she was never informed that she was on the hook for the wedding. However, she did offer to buy the cake.

Emotional reaction

Her mother called her. She was crying and upset that the woman wouldn’t pay for her special day. The woman said she would consider it if it was a smaller wedding, but she wasn’t going to give her the $15,000 she wanted. Her mother pressed the point, so the woman hung up.

Was she in the right?

The woman loved her mother, but she felt that her request was totally out of line. She wrote to an internet forum to ask for advice and got plenty of great replies.

One poster said, “According to your mum’s partner, you’re a ‘gold digger’ who doesn’t earn enough to pay your way in your own marriage, so that should be enough of a reason not to pay for theirs.”

While another declared, “Tell her you will generously contribute exactly the amount she contributed to your wedding.”
