This is exactly what happened to one woman who sent the message Slate’s column with tips Dear Prudence, as she explained to her husband it went against her wishes marriage and completely ruined the day.

“I never cared about marriage, but I didn’t object to it. When my boyfriend asked for it in 2020, we decided to go. We each took about half the responsibility for organizing the wedding, but I think I’m pretty reasonable about compromise,” when he really wanted something .. My only strict rule was not to rub the cake in my face at the reception.
“Because I’m a sensible man who knows me well, I’m not there. Instead, he grabbed me by the back of my head and pushed me into it. It was planned because the cake was ruined and he had a bunch of cupcakes. As a backup.”
The bride immediately told her new husband that she had “finished” with him, but was overwhelmed by calls from family members asking her to give him another chance.
She added: “I left. The next day I told him we were done. I stand by. The thing is, everyone got together over the holidays and told me I had to give him a second chance.
“They say I’m exaggerating because of my problems because I’m very claustrophobic after a car accident years ago, and I totally panicked that they pushed me into a cake and kept me there.
“They also keep telling me that I love him – even though I don’t feel it at the moment – and that he loves me, and that means I don’t give up on the first hurdle. I don’t want to, but everyone is so united and confident in their assurance, that I’m making a terrible mistake, wondering if they’re right. “
In response, Prudence told the bride to continue the divorce despite requests to dismiss her – because her husband’s actions were a “red flag”.
They wrote: “Everyone is convinced that you are making a mistake, but they are not the ones who have to wake up every day with a man whose behavior strongly distracts them. You are. So you only have to listen to yourself.
“I think what he did was a red flag that doesn’t respect you and your wishes. Write down in your mind which of your loved ones doesn’t appreciate your happiness, and continue the divorce.”
The post was later shared at Reddit’s Wedding Shaming Forum, where people were stunned by the groom’s act.
One person wrote, “It’s not even a lovely splash of cake on her nose, he rammed his head into it and humiliated her.”
While another said, “He not only respected her only limit, but found the worst and most aggressive way to violate it.”
