Fiancé Demands Bride Wear Red Wedding Dress Because She’s Not A Virgin

Wedding planning can bring out the worst in people, whether it be relatives like the future mother-in-law or even the spouses-to-be themselves.

Redditor u/CatOwnerVictim learned this the hard way when her fiancé got weird about her wedding dress, and she vented about him on the r/offmychest subreddit.

“My Husband to be wants everyone to know I’m not ‘pure,’” she wrote in the header. “It’s exactly what the title says. I’ve been with my fiancé for 6 years and engaged for the past 8 months. I’ve been doing most of the wedding planning but my fiancé, let’s just call him Ryan, will give his input here and there.”

“So about a month ago Ryan out of nowhere said he was talking to some of his coworkers and thinks that I shouldn’t wear a white dress. This was totally weird to me. Ryan is a very artistic guy, so I figured this was more about how the photos would turn out or something along those lines, but I’m set on wearing white. I told him this and I could see that he was annoyed but he let it go.”

She went on:

“2 weeks ago I finally picked and paid for my dress and this caused a huge argument. Ryan again came to me very annoyed. He asked to see the dress I picked, but I said no because I wanted it to be a surprise for our wedding day. He asked me to at least tell him what color it was, and when I said white, he threw a fit. I honestly do not see why this was a big deal, almost everyone wears white on their wedding day. When I asked him what color he thought I’d be wearing, he told me I should wear red. Again, this was super weird to me. I asked him why I would wear red to our wedding, and he told me that brides only wear white when they are pure.” 

As to the origin of that gag-worthy statement? She explained:

“For some background, Ryan and I started dating when I was 21 and he just turned 20. He was a virgin when we met, and I only had one other person who was my ex-boyfriend of four years throughout high school. This caused a lot of problems The first year of our relationship and we almost did not continue dating because of how insecure he felt. After that first year, it was never a problem again until now I guess.” 

That wasn’t the end of it, however.

“He went to his mom about all of this thinking she would convince me but she’s on my side. So 2 nights ago, Ryan, his mom and I stood in our living room and argued about my sex life being shown in a dress. His mom stated that he is no longer a virgin either so maybe he should wear red too and he bursted out crying. Ryan is still stating that me wearing white would be deceiving all of the guests and that it is different for guys.” 

“This all has honestly made me question even marrying this man. I don’t know if it’s just because everything is so fresh but I’m really disgusted by him. He’s not even religious so I know this is just about him still thinking about me losing my virginity at 18 before I even knew him. I just needed to rant to anyone about his psycho this is.”

Redditors tried to be supportive in the comments and told her it was time to dump the whiny man-baby.
