A Man’s Father and Stepmother Were Abusive to Him and His Fiancée so They Moved to Another Country, but The Stepmother Appeared and Destroyed the Fiancée’s Prized Possession

A man’s cousin-in-law tragically died on her honeymoon many years ago, leaving her husband disturbed whenever he saw a wedding gift, wedding dress, or other wedding item. Subsequently, everything wedding-related was split between family members, but it wouldn’t be long until one of these items caused even further emotional turbulence.

The man’s fiancée, who was also the cousin of the woman who was tragically lost, had been chosen as the maid of honor of the wedding that led to disaster. Subsequently, she inherited the wedding dress, which the woman chose to cherish with sentimental value instead of grievous loss.

Due to the sentimental nature of the dress, the woman had left it in her closet untouched and had no intention of wearing it. It was simply to be kept safe in memory of her cousin.

The couple moved to the other side of the world, desperate for a fresh start in a new environment. Sadly, abuse from the man’s father and stepmother continued, albeit online and thus distant enough to be non-threatening.

One day, the man’s stepmother had unexpectedly flown to the couple’s location to “talk it out” in person. The couple was on a date when she arrived, leaving only a college friend of the man at home, who was crashing on their couch.

Despite the couple not being home, the stepmother attempted to enter the house without permission. “Our friend opened the door and my stepmother forced herself past her, yelling and throwing a fit”, the man recounted. “She shut herself in our room and began to throw stuff around.”

To make matters worse, the man’s father resorted to creating multiple online accounts to harass the couple, perpetuating their distress. The fiancée struggled deeply to cope with the loss of the cherished dress and the resurgence of grief, in addition to the various abusive strategies her partner’s parents had taken out on them.

Disturbed and saddened by his and his fiancée’s recent life events, the man turned to the internet to grieve. “I just want to say how sorry I am to you and your fiancée”, one reader wrote. “Focus on being there for her as much as possible. I’d suggest getting her therapy to help her get through this. She might need some professional help to get through the deepest parts.”

Take Legal Action

The same commenter added the following to their response: “File any and all charges you can against your stepmother and get a restraining order if possible. Get a lawyer and see what can be done.”

Make a Memento

Another reader tried to offer the couple a ray of positivity. “Take the shredded dress and make a memento for your wedding”, they suggested. “Wrap both of your bouquets in it. Make a garter for you both. Whatever you do, don’t let your mother-in-law taint something so special… give it back its power.”
