Of the many details couples worry about when planning their weddings, their guests’ perfumes aren’t usually at the top of the list. But it’s hardly news that marriage rarely goes as planned. There is no such thing as a perfect wedding, however, and people often need to make real-time adjustments during the celebration to make sure everything is on track.
However, when it leads to a scene at a wedding reception, it definitely affects the mood of the party and, in turn, can affect the dynamics of the entire family.
So to get more insight on the topic from an expert, we reached out. Sam Owen, a global relationship coach who makes it her mission to help people achieve their wellness goals as quickly as possible. Being the well-known author of Happy Relationships: 7 Simple Rules for Creating Harmony and Growthshe was more than happy to share her thoughts on the matter.
“The tension is high because many members of the wedding party may feel personally invested in the occasion because it’s their son/daughter/brother/niece/bestie etc,” she told BorePanda. “While it’s sweet that they love you so much that they’re emotionally involved, it’s also very stressful.”
Still, Owen points out how important it is to remember that this milestone celebration affects not just the newlyweds, but the wider circle as well. “Marriage can prioritize how you handle all of your important relationships going forward,” Owen explained. “So with that in mind, people in your wedding ceremony sometimes use your wedding to show their importance in your life and to test boundaries.”
“Above all, they are looking for you to prove how important they will be to you and how you will continue to support them as the significant other in your life.”
Let’s face it, it’s only natural for a bride and groom to feel anxious as they approach such a big life milestone. But while they can’t enjoy their big day, it’s acceptable to make requests — “as long as they’re done with the right attitude.” In these cases, the relationship coach said it’s best to ask politely and be respectful and empathetic.
The user later clarified some details about his allergies in the comments.
When it comes to the story in question, Owen said the “or quit” ultimatum seemed to create too much tension. “It would have been better if the groom asked his mother-in-law to rectify the situation because if she didn’t, he would have to spend the night outside. Then the onus would be on the bride and her mother to make the right decision and not blame her.” Do not apply.
“The fact that he posted this on Reddit shows that he’s not sure about his approach to the issue, either because he’s one or both of them. Being gaslighted from the side, or because he feels deep down that his approach was somehow wrong.” Owen continued.
“If he is being gaslighted, my earlier suggestion was that he beg to be cured or he would have to stay out instead of demanding that his dear mother leave him altogether, otherwise, he But it will become clear who was wrong and it will be very useful going forward.”
But as some readers pointed out, spending the wedding night apart isn’t the best way to start a marriage. When asked how the event could affect the couple’s future relationship, Owen told us: “Your wedding night is one of the most important moments in your life, and it The memory now is filled with so much negativity that it can lead to resentment and questions in the future. How much your partner loves you.”
The good news is that spouses can reassess the situation. According to Owen, “Research shows that when we give a more positive outcome to a negative memory because we reexamine it in the present moment, it helps us release the negative grip that it holds.” K is on us because we are no longer storing that memory in the negative. way.”
“For example, ‘This situation was just a result of our stress with all the stress of the marriage and it happened because we learned that we need to work better together as a team which is ultimately our future. There’s a blessing in disguise,’” Koch suggests one way newlyweds can reach that past moment.
At the end of the day, Owen strongly believes that happy couples should take other people’s feelings into consideration. “Although you are the bride and groom and your needs should be greater than your wedding guests, if you are going to invite others, let them know through your words and actions that they are important to you too.”
“And if you have to deal with difficult situations, be respectful and compassionate in your requests and make sure you fair Make requests instead of adversarial demands so no one thinks you were wrong,” he advises.
“If you don’t trust people, you’ll go from ruining your big day to inviting them like family members. Your special day, so consider getting married without another witness there,” concludes Owen.
Readers immediately sided with the groom and expressed their support, he says.
