However, she goes on to say that her fiancé’s cousin asked her to speak to her fiancé because he was angry that he hadn’t gotten permission to propose to his girlfriend at their wedding! “It was slightly funny because my fiancé had been sitting next to me at the table with a grumpy look on his face for an hour, now I know why. I texted the cousin and told him that if my fiancé said no, I would too,” the poster said. However, things didn’t stop there and escalated into a bigger issue, as revealed on the Reddit platform AITA (Am I the A*****e).
