Getting Married On Siblings Birthday

Here is an email from an IHateWeddings.com reader: “What happens when you sacrifice your birthday so your brother can celebrate his anniversary every year on your birthday? I find that a stab in the back.”

We talk about Thunderstealing a lot at IHateWeddings.com. This is the ultimate case of Thunderstealing. This is a moment of Thunderstealing that is a lifetime in the making.

Here is a new IHateWeddings.com rule: You are not allowed to get married on your unmarried siblings’ birthdays. Especially if it looks like your unmarried sibling will never get married. That means for the rest of your life your spinster sister’s special day will be overshadowed by your anniversary.

And don’t pray for your brother to get divorced. Then instead of your birthday and his anniversary being the happiest day of your brother’s life, it will be the worst day of his life.  

While your family is singing you “Happy Birthday” they’ll secretly be feeling bad for your divorced brother.

Becky Hates Showers More Than Weddings

By Becky In Ohio

I don’t think that bridal showers are getting enough hate mail on this site…so here it goes….

I HATE BRIDAL SHOWERS! I’m actually getting married in a few months, and am still being badgered for not having one (or three, which is the norm now). I think they’re blatant requests for gifts (gifts going to couples that most likely already live together and have way nicer things than me).

Does any woman out there actually enjoy going to one of these (when it’s not your own daughter reaping all the rewards)? They’re horrible, and it’s so unfair that only women get stuck with these stupid traditions (baby showers too).

I can understand a baby shower when you’re having your first child, but really bridal showers are getting ridiculous. I’ve heard so many horror stories about the lengths parents have gone through to get gifts and money for their newlywed children, and it makes me sick.

Where Is I Hate Weddings?

I’m Not Alone

I love your website and am e-mailing expressly to nag you to update it. I am currently enduring the trials of being a maid of honour complete with verbal lashings for forgetting to bring my dressy shoes to a fitting, as well as liaising between the bride and her ex-boyfriend who she is not 100% over. I find it an enormous comfort to know that I am not alone in my frustration over the gradual loss of all my friends as they all contract a hideous case of Hepatitis M, leaving me with my one lonely joy – waiting until they all get fat.

Oh dear God! You didn’t get married, did you?!

Signed,

Canadian Spinster
