A woman recalled the fallout with her entitled sister who demanded she attend her expensive destination wedding at the risk of losing her job.
The young lady in question, whom we shall call Jana, took to Reddit to reveal that her younger sister, Jackie, has always had “issued with entitlement, taking advantage of others, throwing fits, and being a miser.”
Despite her sibling’s attitude issues, Jana remained in contact with Jackie throughout the years until the latter met a rich, “pushover” man and proposed to him because she was desperate to get married.
While the man wanted a simple, local wedding, Jackie eventually convinced her fiancé to have an expensive destination wedding.
“We regretfully declined her invitation because the trip would cost us $3-4K which we did NOT have. It would have to go on a credit card,” Jana wrote.
“When we RSVP’d no, she said she and her now-husband wanted to pay for everything so we could attend. My husband and I were floored because 1) that is a lot of money, and 2) my sister has never been one to offer to pay for anything. We accepted her offer with a lot of gratitude.
“A couple months go by and she asks if my husband and I have booked our airplane tickets and hotels yet and said, ‘They just keep getting more expensive the closer they get to the date you know!’ Umm….
what? I have never expected anyone to just give me anything, but my financial situation hasn’t changed! We tell her as much and she says, ‘Well, [fiancé] and I looked at all the prices a while ago and it is too much money so you guys will have to take care of it yourselves.
After repeatedly telling her sister that she would not be able to attend her wedding because of financial issues and because she couldn’t afford to leave her new job, Jana was in for a surprise when Jackie cut all contact with her.
“She has no concept of money because she has always manipulated people into paying for her.
She has never been able to hold a job.She has no empathy for others yet thinks she is deserving of special treatment. I don’t understand where it came from because our parents raised us to be hardworking and to not expect sh*t from anyone,” the woman added.
“Our parents and my husband and I couldn’t afford to attend. Her husband’s family could and wanted to go, but she wouldn’t allow it because ‘it would be weird to only have his family there and not mine!’ She put up a huge pay wall and then blamed us for ‘having to elope’ and went no-contact with us. It has honestly been a huge relief after a lifetime of her ab*se.”
Jana went on to reveal that she hasn’t had any contact with her sister for the last two years while admitting she feels relieved for the end of the toxic relationship.
