A woman is questioning whether she was in the wrong for calling her best friend 'dumb' for marrying a man who wasn't financially stable for seven years. She and her fiancée were attending her best friend's engagement party when the best friend's fiancé made a speech about why it took so long for him to propose.

The speech included reasons such as not having a stable job and not finishing his degree until 2019. The woman and her fiancée couldn't help but feel some type of way about it and later explained to her best friend how waiting so long for a man who wasn't financially stable wasn't something to be praised.

Was the woman wrong for criticizing her best friend's decision to marry for love instead of stability in this situation?
