Bride says family refuse to attend wedding because they ‘hate’ her partner
Finding the one is something worth celebrating – but it's awkward if your family aren't keen on your partner.
One woman has found herself in this situation after finding out her relatives dislike her husband-to-be.
And their hatred is so bad that they're now refusing to attend her wedding.
The unnamed woman claimed her parents and other relatives will not be there to celebrate her big day as they "hate" her partner.
She explained the dilemma in an anonymous post on Reddit where she asked online users for some advice on the matter.
The 28-year-old said she met her partner while at university after she took a few years out of education when she had a baby boy.
During her second year of study, her fiancé was hired as a lecturer, he was 27 at the time but is now 31.
She wrote: "I hated him at first. He was nervous and overcompensated by acting like a w***er, and I was not impressed.
"By my third (and final) year he eased up a lot and was genuinely nice.
"The turning point was when Teddy [my son] got sent home, and I emailed him to say I'd be missing his lecture.
"He suggested I bring Teddy with me. He was only four at the time and very easily bored, and he spent the lecture alternating between helping us and entertaining Teddy."

She added: "This whole time, I was having regular phone calls with my parents.
"They noticed the shift from me ranting about my now-fiancé every chance I got to singing his praises."
A few months after graduating, the woman bumped into her partner in a coffee shop and invited him to sit with her and Teddy.
She told how the couple exchanged numbers and then after sometime they began dating.
Now the pair have been together for two years and are planning to get married.

Speaking about when she told her family, she explained: "We've made clear to everyone that he's not really a w***er, how the timeline works, and he's done his best to impress them.
"He proposed at New Year's (with Teddy's help). I said yes.
"We're planning the wedding, and when I asked my mother for help out with the guest list regarding my family, she said not to bother as no one wants to come, including her, dad, and my siblings.
"The only person likely to come is my brother (32m), but that's it for my whole extended family, solely because they don't like him.
"Is there anything that can be done at this stage? Something we can do, on our end, to get them to come? Is this the point where I should just give up?"

Since she shared her dilemma on the open forum, more than 300 people responded to the post.
One wrote: "It's frustrating, but I've learned to not vent EVER to friends or family about my partner, unless it was truly egregious behaviour.
"All they hear and remember is the time your partner 'mistreated' you. The cat is out of the bag here, though."
Another suggested: "I would talk to your family again very seriously. Lots of people don't like their in-laws but if you want a relationship with that family member you have to grit your teeth and be supportive.
"It sounds like the issue here is that they believe this relationship either started inappropriately/may be abusive in some way."
