A BRIDE-TO-BE has found herself in a very awkward situation just weeks before her big day, after her two brothers refused to come if their stepdad is there.
The woman, 25, and her brothers, 30, went through a difficult time when their parents divorced, and when their mum remarried, the brothers didn’t want anything to do with her husband.

However, the bride-to-be lived with her mum and her husband and during that time they established a good relationship.
The bride-to-be took to Reddit’s AITA forum to explain her story.
She said: “My stepdad did what he could to help me out with school and everything, he even offered to fund my wedding which is going to be in five weeks time and I’m very grateful for that though this was his decision.
“I sent Dean and Kevin invitations but once they found out that our stepdad was going to be there, they said they might not come.
“They took time to think then gave me an ultimatum saying that if our stepdad is coming then they won’t be.
“I literally freaked out because I definitely want my brothers to be at my wedding so badly and I tried talking to them but they were being stubborn.”

The bride-to-be discussed the issue with her fiance and came to the conclusion that she had no choice but to “politely uninvite” her stepdad.
So she decided to break the news to him via email.
She continued: “Later I got a call from my mom yelling at me, calling me hurtful stuff saying I was acting like an ungrateful b**** by excluding her husband from the wedding after everything he’s done for me.
“I told her that my brothers threatened not to come which pushed me to make this difficult decision because if it was for me I’d have everyone there.
“She cussed me out for prioritising my hateful and cold-hearted brothers over my stepdad and showing him that I’m not worthy of his grace which was really really hurtful for me to hear.”
The woman was then left questioning whether she’d made the wrong decision in siding with her brothers and uninviting her stepdad.
A whopping 2.5k Reddit users took to the comments to express how they felt about the situation and it’s safe to say, they thought the woman was in the wrong for uninviting the stepdad.

One person said: “Your stepdad obviously cares about you and is PAYING for your wedding. He is in no way the problem here. Your brothers are being childish and are the ones you can’t just get along to be there for their sister’s wedding without being petulant little babies about it.”
Another added: “You should re invite your stepdad and let your brothers know that they after still welcome but that if they don’t come they only have themselves to blame.”
A third commented: “Unless there’s more to this than meets the eye, they seem to have no legit reason for disliking your stepdad other than the fact that he is not your actual dad. He has been good to you, and I’m not surprised your mum is raging. I can’t imagine the hurt your stepdad must be feeling right now.”
