Bride stunned to be asked to delay wedding by older sister

By Emerald Pellot, In The Know

A woman's older sister wants her to postpone her wedding so that the older sister can get married first.

The bride-to-be took to Reddit for help. She is the middle sister and when she announced her engagement, her older sister became furious with her. The issue is the older sister isn't even engaged or seeing anyone yet.

"The problem started at a family dinner when we announced to everyone that we're engaged," the user wrote. "My older sister was very upset. She didn't accept the fact that I was going to get married first then she was. My older sister pulled me aside and asked me to postpone the wedding until she could get married first. She thinks that being the oldest, she should get married first."

The bride-to-be rejected her older sister's suggestion.

"I said no, that I wasn't going to do that because it wasn't fair to me or my fiancé. She doesn't even have a fiancé and I don't want to have to wait until she finds someone, spend time with that person, be asked to marry, get engaged, get married so that I can get married," the woman said.

Then the older sister started to cry.

"My older sister started to cry and say that it would be very humiliating for her if I married first and that it would be like destroying her. Now my parents and many of my family members are bombarding me with messages and calls asking me to cancel the engagement," the user explained.

Reddit users felt the sister was being absurd.

"It's insane," one user remarked.

"Your sister and parents are being ridiculous," another said.

"This is so weird," someone added.
