A groom was slammed for refusing to let his bride-to-be’s best friend as a bridesmaid at their wedding.
“Her face is also so recognizable that when we go out to dinner she inevitably gets asked for an autograph,” he said.
“Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t disapprove of her at all, that’s her business. She’s gorgeous. But my family is strictly religious. So much so that my mother said if the wedding didn’t take place in a chapel, she wouldn’t attend.
“I know it’s ridiculous, but it’s my family. And it’s not just her, it’s this whole site except for a few cousins and my siblings.

“That’s a problem because she’s so recognizable.
“I totally admit that I saw a few of her videos before meeting her just because they are so viral.
“I’m sure other guys there have seen their videos too and if anything is mentioned or pointed out it could cause so much drama that I really don’t want to deal with it on the wedding day.”
He went on to say he doesn’t want attention to be drawn away from the woman he’s marrying because “half the people there” saw one of the bridesmaids getting intimate online.
But when he brought up his concerns with the bride, she was “not happy.”
“She told me that she’s one of her closest friends and that she’s not pulling her out of our wedding just to placate my mother,” he adds.
“She told me my behavior was disgusting and that I was an asshole.”
Reddit users were quick to share their thoughts on the situation, and the majority said he was wrong.
One person said, “If your family is quite religious, how is it possible that any of them know what their job is?”
Another wrote: “Tell your family not to be so biased.”
A third commented: “I believe this with all my heart: you can’t judge someone for what they do for a living if you’re involved in their work. If you and your family watch adult videos, you’ve helped create demand for their work. It’s pretty bold for you and your family to sit on your high horse and condemn her for doing sex work when you’ve actively contributed to the market that requires it.
Someone else said: “If you don’t grow a set and stand up for your wife, your marriage is doomed. Bridesmaids are chosen by the bride, not her family.”
