Reddit: Bride To Be Refuses To Invite Her Family To Her Wedding Because They 'Don't Want To Be Vaccinated'

With weddings officially back on amid the lifting of lockdown, one woman has caused quite the stir on Reddit after revealing she is refusing to invite some family members to her wedding if they do not get the covid-19 vaccine.

Posting in Reddit's 'Am I The A** Hole' forum, the anonymous woman discussed her wedding plans as she and her fiancé draft their guestlist.

She began by explaining that she and her fiancé have agreed to have a small wedding.

"We are doing a small affair that requires all guests to be vaccinated for covid. I am doing less than 50 people and now I am at a conundrum," she said.

The first family member the woman mentions is her older brother who she has not spoken outside of times when it has been necessary. She explained: "He is 18 years my senior and eloped when he got married. He doesn't reach out unless he wants me to do something for him. I honestly cannot stand his wife and hardly know my nephew at all."

She also mentions that they are half-siblings and implies that he doesn't seem to view her as family.

Several commenters came out in support of the woman, with one person writing: "It's your wedding, you're not obligated to do anything that you don't want to do."

A second Reddit user said: "Just because someone is related to you doesn't make them automatically obligated to your life.

The person then mentions they own experience with deciding not to invite their half-brother, adding: "I'm not inviting my half-brother either. We never speak to each other and I don't think he particularly likes me - and I don't really care for him - so I don't see why I should invite him to a big event in my life just because we share a parent. Do what makes you happy!"

A third person shared: "They clearly don't care for you, you clearly don't care for them. You deserve to have people there that actually treat you like family and make you feel valued."
