A bride's decision to tell her six-year-old nephew to leave her wedding for wearing white clothes has caused a wave of criticism online.
However, one woman threw an absolute 'tantrum' after one of the 'nephews was wearing white jeans and a white bow tie'.
"My wife (26) was very strict on the fact that no guest is allowed to wear white, which is understandable because for females that’s considered rude or bad luck at weddings I think," he wrote.
"The reception was going well too, until I noticed my wife walking over to the bathroom with her face held in her hands.
"Obviously I could tell my wife was upset as we’ve been together for three years now and I can tell when she’s upset. I rushed across the room telling guests 'one minute' as I hurried by them.
"Once I got to the bathroom I knocked on the door and informed my wife that it was me at the door. After a few minutes I heard the door unlock and open.
"When I got in a saw my wife sitting on the floor with mascara running down her cheeks."
The husband asked the Mrs what was wrong, and 'she told me that one of our nephews was wearing white jeans and a white bow tie'.
"I immediately thought to myself how she was completely over reacting because he’s a six year old child and had no idea that you can’t wear white to a wedding," he continued.
"I told her she was over re acting but in a much nicer way and I said that she should go enjoy the reception and forget about the whole thing.
"She eventually texted her sister to come to the bathroom and fix her makeup so she could go back out and have a good night."
However, as things started to calm down, the groom received and absolute earful off his sister - the six-year-old's mum - and threatened to leave the wedding entirely.
"My wife started crying again and saying that this is her day and she doesn’t want it to be ruined by our nephew," he said.
"This angered me because I had enough of her ruining our day over something silly. I then said she was not only selfish but that she was insanely insecure if she’s worried about a six year old looking better than her.
"My wife’s been staying with her mother since the wedding and we haven’t spoken once. Her mom reached out to me this morning and said that I need to apologise right away for being 'out of line'."
Asking fellow Redditor's if he has done anything wrong, one person commented: "Did she think people would confuse him for the bride?"
Another added: "Maybe people would have confused him for the bride, given she's acting 6 years old over the situation."
While someone else said: "White used to signify virginity. The six-year-old is probably much more entitled to the color than this guy’s weird-ass wife."
We can only send our best wishes to the not-so-happy couple.
