No Plus-One, No Wedding? 🚫💔

Our protagonist has been best friends with Jane since they were kids, and they have a sister-like bond. When Jane gets engaged, our protagonist is thrilled to be one of her Co-Maids of Honor, alongside another friend, Emily. However, when Jane has to cut down her guest list, our protagonist's partner of 5 years is on the chopping block. Jane says only those in 'serious committed relationships' (aka engaged couples) can bring a plus-one, leaving our protagonist feeling upset and singled out. 😢 To make matters worse, Emily's recently-engaged fiancé, who's known to be an a**hole, is allowed to attend. After a heated fight, our protagonist tells Jane she won't attend the wedding if she can't bring her partner, and they're not speaking. 💥 Now, she's left wondering if she's in the wrong. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
