Am I wrong for banning my mom from my wedding after what she did to my fiancee at family dinner?

Family ties are most times stronger than steal, but at the same time, they can be easily broken if there is a lack of respect and mutual understanding.

One 25-year-old American man took to Reddit to share his story regarding the family feud that unfolded after he announced he would be getting married to a woman he considers his soulmate.

When he was 19, this man went to Norway to study and that’s where he met Maya, the woman of his dreams. Their relationship blossomed and he popped the question. There was no doubt that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.


The two agreed to share the news of their engagement and the wedding that was on the horizon with his part of the family in person so they traveled to the States.

Upon arrival, one of OP’s aunts hosted a family dinner and everyone, including his parents, were there.

However, the moment OP and Maya entered the place, they were welcomed by angry stares by OP’s mom and his two aunts.

Although they have never met Maya before, they decided she wasn’t good enough for him.

Throughout the night, the trio did all in their power to make Maya feel as uncomfortable as possible. Due to her broken English, she didn’t speak much, but she was aware of the tension.


The mother’s disapproving glares intensified as time passed by, and Maya decided to share that with OP in Norwegian. OP was as well aware of his mom’s inappropriate behavior, but he still decided to give her some time to get to know his fiance better.

Things got heated when the mother decided to propose a toast. “Cheers to my son and his [fiancée], she may not be the best woman for him, but I’m sure he’ll realize that once he sees what a [expletive] and gold digger she is. Or maybe she’ll grow a [conscience] and save him from [herself]. Cheers,” she said to the disbelief of the rest of the family.

Maya was hurt so much that she started crying.


Unable to bear the weight of the moment any longer, OP broke the silence with a firm declaration, he was severing ties with the toxic trio by uninviting them to his wedding.
