In the run up to your wedding day, most people start picturing how their life will change once they’re joined to their partner in matrimony.

But when delving into what could be, some realise they’re marrying the wrong person – and choose to back out before it’s too late.

One man has revealed the moment he realised he was making a mistake after his bride-to-be almost killed his dog through “neglect”.

Venting to Reddit, the 28-year-old said: “My fiancée and I have been together for four years, engaged for six months.

“I also have a seven-year-old lab mix who is the greatest dog in existence.

“On Saturday, fiancée had a bachelorette party at home. I stayed with my parents but I left the dog with her because she likes having him there.

“However, I made sure to tell her to put the dog in our bedroom once the party gets going.

“But at 5am on Sunday, I get a frantic call that something’s wrong with the dog.”

Too busy to think about their dog, the 27-year-old woman and her friends left alcohol and chocolate edibles within reach of the inquisitive pooch.

“She was drunk. I told her to get a taxi and go to the emergency vet clinic,” he added.

“When I got there, she looked like she hadn’t stopped crying for hours and she couldn’t even speak.

“Two of her friends were there so they told me my dog is alive but not well. I felt sorry for her for an entire 10 minutes while waiting for the doctor.

“But then the doctor told me my dog ingested large amounts of alcohol and chocolate edibles.

“The girls apparently thought it would be cool to leave everything out on short coffee tables, leave the dog to wander around instead of putting him in our bedroom, and then get wasted and not notice he was going to town with the booze and edibles.”

It was as soon as they arrived home when he told his bride-to-be to pack her bags and “get out of his house and life”.

He added: ” I told her to tell her guests the wedding is off, and I’ll tell mine. She was shocked, but she took her things and left.

“Two hours later, I get bombarded by messages on Messenger, Whatsapp, by her sisters, brother, brother’s wife, her mom, her friends, telling me that I am insane to do this to her after four years.

“They started off defending her, but it quickly turned into insulting me.







His friends and family took her side

After trying to turn to his family and friends for comfort, he soon realised they were also on her side.

“My mum said ‘Well, it was a mistake, she didn’t do it on purpose, besides – the dog didn’t die!’. Lucky me, eh? My dog didn’t die!

“My sister was appalled that I cancelled the wedding ‘over that!’ and even my best man said I might have overreacted.

“Our relationship has had ups and downs, but it’s mostly worked fine.

“But I am so disgusted at my fiancée that I can’t even imagine looking her in the eye, let alone spending my whole life with her. She isn’t 17, she is 27!”

He ended up turning to Reddit for advice and explained how his soon-to-be bride would do other “dumb stuff” like texting while driving and leaving chopping boards on the electric stove.

“Posting here kind of triggered me to conclude this isn’t about the dog at all,” he added.

“She is negligent and irresponsible and I don’t want to stick around and possibly see our child die in a car accident some day because she was texting or she forgot to put his seat belt on.

“I’d rather be an a**hole now than spend years of my life worrying every time our child is left alone with her.

“If she’d accidentally killed a person while texting and driving, I would also leave her.

“I guess I realised I don’t want to spend my life with someone who has such blatant disregard for human (or animal) life.”

While most users agreed he was marrying the wrong woman, others spoke about how the woman’s reckless behaviour should be enough of a ‘red flag’.

One user said: “The one person here who has his head on straight is you.

“Your head is on so straight you know you have to do the mental load of day-to-day life for both of you.

“Regardless of her innocence, intent, or possible diagnosis, she makes poor choices and cannot be trusted.

“Your family and friends love her like you loved her once, but unlike you, they get to enjoy all the benefits of her friendship without her jeopardising their peace of mind. You’re not obligated to marry her.

“It’s obvious that her constant thoughtlessness and irresponsibility have become a burden to you that others don’t have to bear.

“She is supposed to be an equal partner, not a child you have to mind. Very unsexy to feel like you’re filling a parental role in a relationship.”

Another user added: “That level of carelessness could lead to death. What would people say if she had done the same thing with a kid around?

“It’s pretty obvious how you feel, getting out now seems like a better option than having this fester until the divorce.”
