A groom-to-be can’t get over the fact that his fiancée only has male friends and thus, no maids of honor.
He asked Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to weigh in. He hails from a traditional family who disapproves of his fiancée’s male friends. She, however, doesn’t think it’s a big deal to have best men at her wedding instead of bridesmaids. To get back at her, the groom invited his ex-girlfriend to the wedding.

“I recently proposed to my girlfriend Hanna,” he wrote. “As we’re organizing the bridal party, the issue came up that Hanna doesn’t have any close girlfriends. Her best friends are all guys. My dad already thinks Hanna’s relationship with her male best friend is inappropriate and she shouldn’t be so close to another guy when she’s in a long-term relationship. I said she should choose some girls as bridesmaids instead. Hanna refused, saying she’s not close enough to any girls. I suggested she could ask her two sisters, which upset her because she has been no contact with her family for about 10 years. I kept trying to explain why it made me uncomfortable, but she just wouldn’t listen. She said it was unfair and claims there is no way Jack is romantically interested in her. He says he’s gay.”
He refused to listen to Hanna and then things spun out of control.

“In the end, I said that fine, she could have a guy in her side of the party, but only if I could have a girl in my side,” he explained. “Well, Hanna said that was fine and that she didn’t mind. That quickly changed when I said who I wanted to invite; my ex-girlfriend Sasha. I said that it was hypocritical for Hanna to get jealous of me wanting a female friend there when she wants her male friend to be there. She said it is different, but I think it’s the same thing if not worse on her end. (Sasha doesn’t have an issue with Hanna but I think her friend doesn’t seem to like me, even if he’s never said outright.) She brought up how my parents keep saying they want me to get back with Sasha, which isn’t even my fault! I said either Jack goes and she asks her sisters to be bridesmaids or I get to have Sasha at the wedding party. Hanna isn’t talking to me now.”
Reddit users thought the groom’s behavior was immature.
“You’re arguing that being jealous of a guy who has never dated your fiancée and, considering his sexuality, never will, is just as reasonable as being jealous of a woman who you dated for seven years,” someone commented.
“You should not be getting married,” another said.
“Such a ludicrous request,” a user wrote.
