A mother said her future daughter-in-law thinks she is evil after she told her son to wait before making a proposal because he was still too young to tie the knot.
She took to Reddit and explained that she told her son how important it was to get an education first before proposing to his girlfriend.
“I told my son that he had his whole life ahead of him and he could get married later, but didn’t need to rush it,” she wrote.
“I told him that if he went to college and waited, even just a year or two, I’d pay for his tuition,” the mother continued.
“At the time I didn’t know how serious their relationship was as they’d been together for a little over a year, and was scared it wouldn’t work out and he’d waste this opportunity.
“My son happily accepted this offer and agreed with me that it would be best to wait.
The mother went on: “This year my son graduated college but maintained a long-distance relationship with Fran, and they announced their engagement a couple of months ago.
“We were all ecstatic about it.
“Sometime between then and now, my son told Fran that I was the reason he waited until now to propose. I wasn’t aware until Christmas when during dinner, Fran said she wanted to say something.
“She began saying I paid my son to not marry her and actively tried to ruin their relationship.”
“She then said she was blessed that ‘evil hadn’t won’ and couldn’t wait to have a long and happy marriage. Everyone was silent and didn’t really know what to say,” she continued.
“My son approached me later to apologize and said she had twisted his words but it’s been constantly weighing on my mind as friends and family present all have different opinions.”
Her post received hundreds of comments from other Reddit users who agreed that she didn’t do anything wrong.
“Your son should seriously rethink this relationship. Fran doesn’t sound very nice,” one person commented.
“Your future daughter-in-law showed to the entire family that you were correct and that your son was wise to delay marriage,” another wrote.
“What Fran did was extremely inappropriate and a huge red flag. If I were your son, I’d be very cautious now with marrying her,” a third said.
