What do you do when your parents are chronically late for everything and you know it will ruin your wedding day? This groom took matters into his own hands and had a special invitation printed with a fake start time an hour earlier than the actual ceremony. His mother was beside herself when she thought they were going to miss the wedding but was relieved to see other guests arriving "late". The ceremony went off without a hitch, but now the groom's mother is angry after finding out the truth. Was it worth it to ensure a punctual wedding, or was the groom out of line for deceiving his own mother?

Groom tricks chronically late parents into being on time ⏳

Being late is a habit that is hard to break, and it can be frustrating for those who are constantly kept waiting. However, it was more than just a mere inconvenience for one groom. His parents were so habitually late that he had to take drastic measures to ensure they would be on time for his wedding. In this post, the groom shares how he tricked his mother into arriving on time by sending her a fake wedding invitation with an earlier start time. The plan worked, and the ceremony went off without a hitch. However, things turned for the worse when the truth was revealed during a family dinner. The groom's mother was understandably upset and felt betrayed by her son's actions. Was the groom in the wrong for using deceit to ensure his mother was on time or were his actions justified?
