One reader said, “Are you sure you want to marry this person? She seems to have zero self-awareness, and when you don’t leap to three cheers for her stupid idea, she doesn’t want you there because you’ll kill the mood. She definitely loves herself above everyone else, including you.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote: “Hijacking someone’s event to make your own announcement is extremely rude and selfish. Addon that the couple is having trouble getting pregnant themselves – it’s that x10.”

A Third View on The Story

A different person states, “Her announcement will traumatize the couple that is getting married. It’s such a horribly selfish move that I’m having trouble believing this post is real. If it is: YIKES. She is incredibly insensitive and selfish. Plus, she is manipulative as all heck with giving you the silent treatment.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter
