A man has claimed his friends have accused him of sabotaging a wedding after he said the event could no longer be held at his house – as he was uninvited.
In a shocking post on Reddit’s Am I The A**hole, the unnamed man explains how one of his best pals, a woman he calls Carla, is getting married soon and she only wanted a small, backyard wedding.
Carla asked if they could hold the ceremony and reception at the man’s house and he agreed as he had plenty of space at his property and it’s nice and private.
However, the groom has recently discovered that he and Carla used to date and she was in love with him.
As such, the groom doesn’t feel comfortable having him as a guest at their wedding anymore, even though he’s married to someone else.
So he’s been told he can no longer attend – even though the wedding is at his house.
When uninvited from the big day, the man asked where the couple planned to hold the wedding now and to their shock, they replied that they were still planning to use his property.
Writing on Reddit, the man said: “My wife and I are expected to just… not be at our home that weekend.
“I told Carla no. They’re going to have to find someplace else since we’re not going to simply leave our home to them for the weekend. Not only for safety reasons but it just doesn’t make sense.
“The groom doesn’t want me around because he’s not comfortable but is comfortable enough to have their wedding at my house?”
He continued: “They really want their wedding here though and because of that I’ve been bugged by not only her but also the groom and some friends who think I’m being a petty a**hole for not letting them have the wedding here anymore. Honestly don’t think that I am, it just doesn’t make sense at all to have to leave our own place for a wedding we’re no longer welcome to and leaving our home totally vulnerable.
“Still, being accused of sabotaging their wedding and the groom believes it’s the least I can do after everything. AITA?”
More than 3,000 people have responded to the post, sharing their thoughts on the situation.
One person said: “All these ‘friends’ who are calling him an asshole can pony up their house to use.”
Another wrote: “Bottom line is that OP is NTA. If OP doesn’t regularly rent out their home then this is just something OP is doing for a good friend. It’s awkward and weird and an impossible situation for OP. I would never leave my primary home to someone else for the weekend (friend or not), at least not unless a whole ton of money was involved but my place isn’t nice enough for that anyways.”
A third added: “The fact that the groom feels like OP owes him something because of actions years before he even knew Carla existed just does it for me. Is this guy for real?”
