Two years ago, a woman had her wedding, and a photographer took photos of her family and guests throughout the day. At the time, her brother was enthusiastic about having photos taken with his girlfriend, but he would have chosen otherwise if he knew the problems it would cause years down the line.
Brother’s Rotating Relationships
The woman’s brother had a reputation for swiftly moving from one romantic partner to another. “He goes through women like I go through socks”, she laughed. During the wedding two years ago, his plus-one invitation had been his then-girlfriend, and this had been the source of a photography drama.
The Wedding Picture Predicament
During the family photo session at the wedding, the brother insisted that his girlfriend be included in all the pictures. The woman, keen on keeping a balance, suggested some photos with her and some without. This led to an argument as the brother felt slighted, as other relatives’ partners were featured in every photograph.
The parents, hoping to prevent any wedding drama, intervened and urged her to include the brother’s girlfriend in all the family photos. She reluctantly agreed, and the girlfriend was soon found in almost every family photograph.
Unearthing an Unwanted Past
Two years later in the present day, the brother’s new fiancée spotted a wedding picture on the wall during a family gathering. The brother hadn’t told his fiancée about his past relationship, and this ignited a fiery argument between the couple.
Confronting the Past
“He tried explaining that they only dated for a very short while”, the woman explained. “However, she accused him of lying because she was included in the family picture. She asked to see our wedding album, and sure enough, the girl was in almost every photograph.
The Request for Removal
With tensions escalating, the brother begged his sister to either take down the picture or remove his ex-girlfriend from it. “I said that I could, but it was expensive so he would have to pay for it”, the woman explained.
Complaining to His Parents
In a desperate attempt to rid his life of the photograph, the brother tried complaining to his parents. They accused the woman of being childish and reminded her that they had paid for the pictures themselves, so it wasn’t as if her covering this cost would be added to an existing bill.
Sticking to the Stipulation
However, the woman held firm, maintaining her stance that the wedding photos were an investment and any alterations or removals would require her brother to cover the expenses. It was a matter of principle, especially considering the parents’ initial insistence on his ex-girlfriend’s inclusion.
A Costly Lesson in Compromise
As the situation stood, the family remained divided, with the woman holding onto the cherished wedding pictures. It was an amusing situation to her because she had suggested all along that her brother’s ex-girlfriend should not appear in every photograph.
The Internet’s Opinion
The woman posted her story on the internet and found it hilarious that everyone was taking her side. “Sounds like you saw something like this coming and therefore suggested not having her in every picture”, one reader pointed out. “He insisted, so now you’re getting your just desert.”
Despite the humor, everyone still felt that the brother should pay. “This was his doing, so he or your parents can pay for it if they want”, another commenter wrote. “Had he not pressured you in the first place, he wouldn’t be in this situation.”
A Common Occurrence
Some readers pointed out that stories like this were a common occurrence. “I feel your pain, my brother’s girlfriend of three years was included in all of our family photos”, empathized one reader. “Little did I know that they had broken up two weeks before the wedding, but he still took her because she “already had the dress.” Eighteen years and I still want to strangle my brother.”
Overall, everyone loved the woman’s story, and thought it was a perfect example of someone receiving their ‘just deserts’. “Hahahaha… this is wonderful”, laughed another commenter. “It’s the perfect definition of petty revenge.”
