Father-in-law insults bride’s appearance at ‘surprise’ wedding, gets slammed online

A Reddit user was facing criticism last week after seeming to insult his daughter-in-law about how she looked at her “surprise” wedding. 

The angry father-in-law posted about the incident on Reddit’s “Am I the A–h—” forum. 

According to the user, who has since deleted his account, his son and daughter-in-law were married eight months ago but didn’t tell anyone in advance that their ceremony was happening.

Instead, the bride and groom invited everyone to attend a cocktail party, which was eventually where the couple said “I do.” 

The father of the groom explained that his wife unintentionally wore white to the event. In the United States, wedding guests typically tend to avoid wearing white as a means to not distract from the bride. 


According to the Redditor, his wife frequently wears white, so the newlyweds should have known to warn them that it was a wedding. Instead, the bride has reportedly been blaming her mother-in-law for the fashion faux pas.

“For eight months she has been trying to spin it to make my wife look like some crazed MIL [mother-in-law] who showed up in a wedding dress,” the man wrote. “She had a wedding picture on social media and when someone commented who wore white, she wrote back ‘that’s my mother in law, she doesn’t like me’ and a laughing emoji.”

“My wife called her out on it and she played the victim and whined about my wife trying to upstage her,” the man added. “She has made a couple snide comments, and told people who weren’t at the wedding that it was intentional.”


Apparently, the groom eventually talked to his dad about the situation, explaining that the bride was hurt after her own mom and best friend commented on how “gorgeous” her mother-in-law looked, before saying anything about the bride herself in the wedding photos, the Redditor said. 

“My wife used to model and not to be an a–, but she draws your eye much more than DIL [daughter-in-law],” the man wrote.


His son also told him that the bride “is insecure, and she has always felt insecure” around her mother-in-law.

“I don’t really care,” the man wrote. “I have a 15-year-old daughter, so I certainly get that woman struggle with body issues, but you don’t get to take that out on someone else and spread lies.”


Eventually, the man couldn’t take it anymore after the bride commented that the photo was “proof that she is the innocent one in the relationship.”

“I snapped at her that I am sick of hearing about the white dress, and that maybe if she put more effort into her own appearance she would have been a beautiful

Danish Government Slammed for ‘Cheating’ Allies on Climate Goals

(Bloomberg) — Denmark’s government risks losing a key ally in parliament after a long-awaited proposal laying out how it will slash carbon emissions fell far short of expectations within its ruling bloc.

On Friday, the leader of one of the parties the government relies on to stay in power threatened to withdraw support if the current climate proposal isn’t improved, according to Weekendavisen.

Morten Ostergaard, who heads the Social Liberals, said he feels “cheated” by the Social Democrats. Ostergaard went so far as to say that the government’s climate program is a “declaration of war” against the parties that helped it win election based on a platform of green promises, the newspaper writes.

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s government this week unveiled a detailed plan mapping out how it intends to reach a goal of cutting carbon emissions by 70% by 2030, compared with 1990 levels. But she and her administration backtracked on earlier promises to use taxes as a key disincentive for polluters. Instead, Frederiksen now says innovation and technology will drive emissions cuts, in an effort to appease low-income voters.

What’s more, some of the government’s proposals have raised eyebrows as they appear to discourage climate friendly behavior. That includes raising taxes on some electric vehicles.

The proposals have drawn criticism not only from lawmakers within Frederiksen’s ruling bloc, but also from the independent chairman of the government-appointed panel tasked with providing guidelines for the climate plan.

It’s now “uncertain” whether Denmark can achieve its 2030 climate goals, Peter Molgaard, chairman of the panel, told state broadcaster DR.

The expert panel says Denmark’s 2030 goals can only be reached if the government also introduces financial incentives to curb emissions.

But Energy Minister Dan Jorgensen insists Denmark is “on the right track.”

The government’s current climate proposal estimates the economic cost of cutting emissions will reach up to $3.8 billion through 2030.
