A woman took to Reddit to share the story of how she ruined her son’s wedding and doesn’t regret it, but wants to know if her act was justified or she’s in the wrong.
Namely, her son Mike was married before. He and his ex-wife welcomed a son together, Tommy.
Tommy was born with Down Syndrome and shortly after his arrival into the world Mike left him and his wife. What’s most, he refused to see his son or have any contact with his now ex-wife. He never provided for the boy.
Mike’s family was angry at him for turning his back to his son, so when his mother learned that he was marrying another wife, she decided she needed to do something about it. The mom didn’t really care if Mike would start a new family, she just wanted him to take responsibility for Tommy.
So, on the day of Mike’s wedding, just as he and his wife-to-be were about to say “I do,” his mother entered the church carrying Tommy in her arms and shared the truth about Mike and how he neglected his son.
Mike’s fiancée was listening with confusion. It was obvious she was in a state of shock after learning the truth about the man she was about to marry.
Moments later, she threw her bouquet at him and she and her family left the church.
Mike’s mom left shortly after and the following day her cousin Liam told her how Mike was raged and showed a range of emotions in front of the confused guests.
“Now I’m not sure if my choice to ruin the wedding was the right one,” Mike’s mom posted. She added that it wasn’t her intention to ruin her son’s wedding in the first place, she only wanted to teach him a lesson and make him take responsibility for Tommy and his actions, but that she doesn’t regret that the wedding didn’t take place.
“It may seem like I went too far, but I think it was important to bring attention to how bad Mike’s neglect was,” the woman wrote.
“I hope this interruption wakes him up so he can change his ways and be there for Tommy as a dad,” she concluded and asked Redditors AITA.
