A blissful engagement quickly became a nightmare for a woman when her fiancé’s family made an outrageous request that left her rethinking their relationship.
A woman loved her fiancé dearly. She thought they were the perfect match – she believed she didn’t want to spend her life with anybody else.
“My fiancé proposed to me about 8 months ago. We decided on having a relatively small wedding which is in two days. Everything was going great. He seems absolutely perfect, and we are very much in love,” the woman shared.
Only two days before their special day, her fiancé approached her with such an outrageous request: that his dad check her hymen in front of his brothers and uncles to see if she was still a virgin.
The request sounded absurd to the woman, so she laughed it off. However, she was shocked when her fiancé insisted he was dead serious.
He then explained that in his family, the father checks a bride’s virginity the night before the wedding to see if she is still “pure.” Utterly uncomfortable with the request, the woman said she wasn’t sure she would do that.
The man insisted she go through it, assuring her that even his mom had to. “He said it would prove how much I love him,” she revealed. He also gaslit her saying she had nothing to hide if she was indeed a virgin.
What Did The Woman Decide to Do?
The woman was in disbelief. She decided to leave, leaving her groom-to-be in tears. “It was very dramatic,” she commented.
Part of the woman wanted to call off the wedding right then and there, but she loved the man and wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. She began considering the strange ceremony, all for the sake of being welcomed into the family.
She took shelter at a friend’s place while she tried to decide what to do. The following morning, she went to meet her fiancé to tell him she would not allow the males of his family to examine her, and he needed to respect her decision.
The man insisted he needed to go through with it for their wedding to push through. He then accused her of lying about her virginity, given she didn’t want to undergo the ceremony.
The entire time, the woman stayed calm and rational about the situation. However, the man started getting aggressive, and the more she tried to explain herself, the angrier he got.
“I told him if he really loved me, he would stand by me on this and tell his father no,” the woman shared. She hoped he’d come around and agree, but she was stunned by his reaction.
Instead of getting his support, the woman got slapped for saying this. He told his fiancée that he didn’t need to prove anything.
Heartbroken, the woman realized this was not the perfect man she once fell in love with. He turned out to be a completely different person, so she decided to call off their wedding.
The situation left the woman miserable. She lived with her friend and allowed herself to feel all her emotions before moving on and getting back up on her feet.
This story left many people speechless, thinking it was fake until the woman insisted it was true. What would you do if you were in a similar situation?
