Guy Lies About Being In A Car Accident To Get Girlfriend To Leave Wedding He Wasn’t Invited To

A couple sits on the edge of a bed, in the middle of an argument

When people are in a relationship, they’re told that having separate friends and sometimes separate activities to partake in can be a very healthy thing.

It can build trust and it can be good to be apart, to miss one another and have then have new things to talk about.

But certain partners may not take to this idea.

And it can lead to some behavior they’re partner’s may not appreciate.

Case in point…

Redditor throwback6790 wanted to discuss her experience and get some feedback. So naturally, she came to visit the “Am I The A**hole” (AITA) subReddit.

She asked:

“AITA for yelling at my boyfriend for making me leave my best friend’s wedding?”

The Original Poster (OP) explained:

“My boyfriend, 27, and I, 26 have been together for 2 years.”

“He has a good heart and is normally rational but his one issue is that he expects to accompany me in every occasion no matter how big or small.”

“He even went with me to my ex boyfriend’s funeral after days of begging.”

“Now my best friend got married few days ago, it was very small and only close family and friends were invited.”

“My boyfriend couldn’t come because of the + one rule.”

“He pitched a hissy fit saying my best friend has no respect for my relationship and was shocked when he learned that I was still going to attend.”

“He told me that if he can’t go then I’m expected to not go as well.”

“But that is my best friend and I had to respect her rules.”

“He gave me an ultimatum, either we go together or I stay home with him.”

“I ended up going because again I respected my friend’s rules.”

“He was angry with me and kept calling the entire 2 hour drive then stopped.”

“Later I got a text from his friend telling me he (my boyfriend) got into an accident and was taken to the hospital.”

“I freaked out.”

“He gave me the address and I had to leave the wedding and told my friends why.”

“I was crying the entire drive home and kept calling his friend but got no response.”

“I arrived to the hospital and asked about my boyfriend and they checked and told me he wasn’t there.”

“My anxiety reached 160% as I kept calling his friends one by one.”

“I just went home and there he was… along with his friend.”

“He saw me and said that he was sorry but this was the only he can get me home after I left him alone.”

“After the initial shock I just blew up yelling at him about lying and making me leave my friend’s wedding and having me literally go to the hospital and freaking out cause of him.”

“I kicked his friend out and we got into an argument.”

“He kept talking about how much I love him, thus I left, which is my own doing not his and he was just trying to see if I really chose my friend’s wedding over him.”

“He then argued that my friend caused this and I shouldn’t agree with her to exclude him.”

“I said what he did was horrible and called him horrible and then went to my room.”

“It was awful cause my friends kept calling to check in on him cause they thought he was really at the hospital.”

“He said I overreacted and that I yelled at the wrong person.”

“AITA? Did I go too far?”

Redditors shared their thoughts on this matter and weighed some options to the question AITA:

  • NTA – Not The A**hole
  • YTA – You’re The A**hole
  • NAH – No A**holes Here
  • ESH – Everyone Sucks Here

Many Redditors declared OP was NOT the A**hole.

“Info based on request from a user:_ He has a history of mental health issues but got better the past few months.”

“He also had a recent death in his family which really affected his health generally.”

“I was about to come here to make exactly this post, but let me add that the boyfriend does not indeed have a good heart if he lies about being hospitalized.”

“He clearly doesn’t care about your feelings or well-being if he’s willing to resort to that to get his way.”

“You’re NTA, but there’s really no saving this relationship.”
