A woman recounts her strained relationship with her unstable and controlling mother, who causes chaos and drama leading up to her wedding.
A Bullying Mother
The Original Poster’s (OP) relationship with her mother (C) had always been strained.
C had been a constant bully, not just toward OP, but also toward her other children.
She had vivid memories of C hanging their bras from a flagpole once, because their father had taken them to a friend’s house to hang out, and C had become furious with them.
OP was just 12 years old at the time.
Living In Fear
C would also take sleeping pills and tell OP that she was a bad kid and that if she died, it would be their fault.
As a child, she lived in constant fear that C might actually try to hurt them in their sleep.
Maintaining Sibling Relations
As she grew older, she tried to maintain a relationship with her family for the sake of her siblings and father, but it was a challenging task.
Always Needs Attention
C was always in control of their lives, and OP had to work hard to please her with lavish gifts and efforts to come to her.
All she wanted was to spend time with her beloved siblings and father, who was the light of their life.
It Didn’t Get Better
When she got engaged with her wonderful partner of several years, C’s behavior became even more erratic.
C began faking illnesses and not being able to walk, as the attention was on the woman.
At the wedding shower, she faked not being able to walk again, and an ambulance was called.
However, once the EMTs arrived, C walked just fine.
She even threatened to sue the venue.
C also demanded special furniture for her at the reception and was unhappy with how OP’s makeup would be.
She got makeup wipes ‘just in case’ for the day, and wanted OP to get a different wedding dress, even though their dress was already at the tailor.
C also told everyone that she would be walking OP down the aisle, not their father.
When OP told C she could not walk down the aisle due to being unstable on her feet, she became upset.
She suddenly could walk fine, and she was accused of breaking her heart.
Boycott the Wedding
C declared she and the rest of the family were not going to the wedding, and even told friends to expect signs of protest outside, all while threatening to boycott the wedding.
Despite OP’s love for her father, he also became part of the conflict.
C told OP to get someone random to walk them down the aisle, as their father refused.
Cut Her Off
Ultimately, OP went into no contact with C, which caused tension with their siblings, who blamed her for the situation.
Fears of a Scene
OP is now fearful that her mother may show up to cause a scene at the wedding, and she dreads what is supposed to be the happiest day of their life.
What Can She Do?
On Redditor suggested, “I would go full No Contact at least for a while with all of them and uninvite all of them.”
Another urged, “Please hire some security to call the police if she shows up!”
What would you do? Should she cut off her whole family or postpone the wedding until things are resolved? Leave a comment!
