She said: “My fiancé and I are planning to get married this summer. My fiancé has heterochromia, which I don’t seem to have a problem with, but I thought it would be nice for our wedding photos if he wore contacts so his eye colors matched.
“I didn’t think he would mind my suggestion but when I brought it to him he was furious.
“He told me he thought I didn’t mind his eye color and I said I obviously didn’t but I would really appreciate it if he wore contacts that matched the color of his eyes for the wedding photos. I said He might even match my eye colors since I have blue eyes while he has 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye.
The woman said she thought her husband-to-be “overreacted” by getting upset about her proposal and the couple are now having a “bigger argument” than she anticipated.
She added: “However, he was not at all receptive to my suggestion. I told him he was overreacting as I don’t want him to wear them all the time just for our wedding photos. But that only led to a bigger fight and we slept in different rooms last night.”
Commenters on the Reddit post were taken aback by the bride’s actions, as many of them couldn’t understand why she wanted to change something about her partner that makes them unique.
One person said: “You say you don’t mind his eyes and yet you’re so embarrassed you don’t want them in your wedding pictures? I don’t deserve to be standing next to him at all.”
While another added, “You’re asking him to change a part of him so you can have ‘perfect’ wedding pictures.”
And a third said: “If he does, all he’ll think about when he sees these wedding pictures is that his wife was so worried about how they were going to look that she didn’t care how I felt.
“How self-centered do you have to be to completely invalidate his feelings and call him sensitive?”
Heterochromia is fairly uncommon, occurring in less than one percent of the population. The condition is often just a quirk caused by genes passed down from your parents.
