To Cancel or Not to Cancel? 🤷‍♂️

So, here's the deal: Our groom-to-be is not willing to play along with the humiliating tradition of wearing a ball and chain at the reception. He's even considering calling off the wedding if his fiancée insists on it. But, he's open to a compromise – if she wants to finance a separate reception just for her family and friends, she can embarrass him all she wants there. The future of their wedding now depends on how adamant his fiancée is about the tradition. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿

"NTA This isn't about this one 'joke,' it's about how you and your fiance navigate conflict. If her priorities are some demeaning family tradition over your comfort, that's a valid reason to have a serious talk about your relationship and possibly reevaluate things." - Thoughtful comment and reply 👍

NTA if you're willing to break it off for something like this I'm afraid you probably werent gonna be that solid of a marriage, in the end. Best end it when you feel it's best, if you're even considering it. Seems like you *want* to and you're looking for an excuse to. 😱💔
