Sometimes in life, you just gotta make a stand…
Some are bigger and more important than others, but when it’s personal, you gotta do what you think is right.
And a teenage girl wants to know if she’s an a**hole for refusing to cut her hair for her father’s wedding.
Read on to see what happened.
AITA for refusing to cut my hair for my father’s wedding?
“Dad (42) and my his fiancee (Alice 28) are getting married in November this year. I (15f) didn’t really like Alice because I think she replaced my mom too soon.
My mom d**d of cancer 2 years ago and she and dad started dating 8 months after. I try to be as polite as I can whenever she’s around or starts a conversation with me. Dad never forced me to have a relationship with her and I can also see that she’s not interested in having one.
After they got engaged, Alice approached me and said we needed to talk. She said she has a clear vision of how she wants her wedding to be and that I have to comply so that everything will be perfect. I said sure and asked her what I need to do. She said, “first, I want you to cut your hair short; second, you can’t wear heels and lastly, only wear light make up and no fake lashes. Okay?”
I let her finish before I responded. I said I can do the second and third but I will not be cutting my hair. My mom loves my hair and helped me grow them thick and healthy. I got my blonde wavy hair from my mom so I will keep it long. Alice accused me of wanting to upstage her. I said that’s not what I’m trying to do and I think it’s unfair since I know she didn’t make these demands on her other female guests. She then called me a selfish brat and told me she’ll tell my dad about how I “disrespected her”.
My dad then got involved and told me to just cut my hair because it will grow back anyway. I said her request is ridiculous and I’d rather not attend their wedding than to cut my hair.
I think I have put my dad in a tight situation and I am now considering cutting my hair because I know my presence in the wedding will make my dad happy. But growing my hair back to lower back length will take a long time.
AITA if I refuse to cut my hair?”
And here’s what Reddit users had to say about this story.
This reader said that Alice is clearly in charge now…
Another person said that this teenage girl should be in therapy because it doesn’t seem like the adults in her life are doing her a whole lot of good.
This individual said that even though dad’s new bride-to-be is young, she shouldn’t be acting like a child.
And finally, this person broke it down and gave Alice a new nickname.
Take a look.
