Engagements are meant to be about love and excitement, but this man’s shocking actions shattered the blissful relationship he had with his fiancee.
In fact, things took a nightmarish turn when he dropped an outrageous request that left her questioning their relationship, and she took to Reddit to share her experience.
The 22-year-old woman held her fiancé, 25, close to her heart, believing they were a perfect match, the ones meant for each other. The proposal, which happened eight months ago, was a joyous occasion, and they had plans for a relatively small wedding just two days away. Love was in the air, and everything seemed perfect.
But then, just days before their special day, the woman’s world was turned upside down when her fiancé approached her with an utterly absurd request – that his father inspect her hymen in the presence of his brothers and uncles to check her virginity.
“I am a virgin and so is he, he wanted to save it for marriage and I wasn’t fussed so I agreed to saving it,” the woman wrote. “He has told me earlier that in his family the father checks the virginity of the bride the night before the wedding. I laughed this off as it seriously sounds like a massive joke.”
He claimed he was dead serious and explained that in his family, a bride’s virginity is inspected by the father the night before the wedding to determine her purity.
The woman was deeply uncomfortable with this request and hesitated, unsure if she could go through with it. Her fiancé, however, was resolute in his desire for her to do it. He argued that it would be proof of her love for him and even attempted to gaslight her, saying that she had nothing to hide if she was truly a virgin.
What did the woman do?
The woman was left in a state of disbelief and decided to leave, leaving her soon-to-be-groom in tears. The situation then became extremely dramatic.
Part of her was tempted to call off the wedding right then and there, but the love she had for her fiancé and her desire to spend her life with him led her to contemplate going through with the purity check, all for the sake of being accepted into the family.
She decided to stay at her friend’s place, using the time to consider her options. The next day, she met with her fiancé to talk about her decision – she would not subject herself to examination by the males in his family, and he needed to respect her choice.
However, her fiancé insisted that this ritual was something that must happen before they could even think about getting married. He even accused her of dishonesty regarding her virginity, saying that her reluctance to undergo the ceremony was proof of this.
Throughout the discussion, the woman stayed calm and rational. Unfortunately, her fiancé’s demeanor shifted from frustration to aggression, and the more she tried to explain herself, the angrier he became.
The woman hoped that her love would persuade him to stand by her and challenge his family’s demand, but the outcome was far from what she anticipated. Instead of support, the woman was physically assaulted and slapped by her fiancé for expressing her thoughts. He said that he had no need to prove anything to her.
Did the wedding continue?
Brokenhearted and devastated, the woman realized that the man she once loved was no longer the same person she thought she knew. She made the difficult decision to call off their wedding.
The situation left the woman an emotional wreck, and she went to stay with a friend as she dealt with what happened.
This shocking story left many people in disbelief – some even assuming it was fake until the woman confirmed it was 100% true.
