She Skipped Her Sister-In-Law’s Wedding Ceremony to Run Errands, and Then She Interrupted Her Mother-In-Law’s Reception Speech to Call Out a “Homophobic” Insult

A woman recently went online to ask if she’d overreacted by getting into a heated confrontation with her mother-in-law at a family wedding reception. Here’s her story.

They weren’t going to the wedding

“My wife and I were invited to my sister-in-law’s wedding,” the 26-year-old began. “We decided that we’d only go to the reception because we had very important things to do at the time of the wedding.”

They promised to help

“We asked the bride if that was alright, and she said it was—as long as we got there early to make a few adjustments to the set-up.”

The woman and her wife promised to be there early. They also offered to help out by paying for a wedding photographer.

She thought it strange

The woman’s sister-in-law thanked the couple but said that it wasn’t necessary; they didn’t want a professional photographer or videographer. The woman thought it was a little sad that the memorable day wouldn’t be captured, but she thought nothing more of it.

She reassured the groom

The night before the wedding, the woman was surprised to get a call from the groom. He sounded worried and had a severe case of pre-wedding nerves. She told him that everything would be alright and that his wedding would be a wonderful day. He sounded reassured, and they said goodnight.

The morning of the wedding, the woman and her wife overslept. The woman awoke to her sister frantically getting dressed, as they had to run their errands and get to the reception early. She berated the woman for forgetting what day it was, calling her “stupid.”

At the reception, everything was going smoothly, and everyone was having a great time.

But then the woman’s mother-in-law got up to make a speech.

Her mother-in-law made a comment

The woman’s mother-in-law began telling the guests that seeing her eldest daughter “get married to a man” was her greatest joy.

The woman’s wife was embarrassed and sank further into her chair, but the woman, still annoyed from her earlier tiff with her wife, wasn’t going to take such passive-aggressive homophobia lying down.

The woman stood up in the middle of her mother-in-law’s speech and began shouting at her. Her mother-in-law accused her of causing a scene, and anyway, what she had said was true.

Then the mother-in-law stormed out of the reception.

She asked the internet

For days after the event, the woman was worried about whether she’d overreacted and ruined the reception. She asked the online community for their thoughts.

The internet responded

The internet took a dim view of the mother-in-law’s homophobia, but they didn’t understand why the woman and her wife would skip the wedding of a close family member. “You could have waited until after the wedding to let your mother-in-law know what you think,” said one. “But you made the whole reception about you. I’d also like to know exactly what was more important than you attending the wedding.”

“This was not about you,” chided another. “You were wrong to miss the wedding because you had to run ‘important’ errands. Yes, your mother-in-law was horrible, but you made the situation worse for everyone, especially the couple getting married, who did nothing wrong.”
