When your boyfriend is jealous, and refuses to go to a wedding:
“I’m the Maid of Honor in my best friend’s wedding coming up in a few months. Back in the day, we hung out a lot and I have hooked up with a few of the groom’s friends, and unfortunately my boyfriend has heard a little about those escapades (although no details like who or what happened). My boyfriend informed me that he will not be going with me because he “doesn’t want to be in a room full of guys I’ve hooked up with,” and he doesn’t care for my friends. I told him that it’s important to me that he goes, I’m the MOH and my whole family will be there (not to mention one of his friends who is dating another bridesmaid), so it’s not like he’ll be sitting alone the whole time. I’m tired of fighting about this, but I’m starting to feel like it’s a sign that he doesn’t really care about our relationship. Help!” – Kylie
@CrazyJewishMom: Can you blame him?
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Yes! That’s totally unacceptable.
@CrazyJewishMom: Listen, why would your boyfriend want to sit around in a room with other guys who know what the inside of your vagina looks like?
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Okay, I agree that it’s an uncomfortable situation, but people have pasts, and he should be looking to your future together. I think you should try again to make him understand how important this is to you, and explain that you want to share it with him. He’s feeling insecure, so try and be understanding of that, but that is NOT an acceptable reason to abandon you during an important moment in your life.
@CrazyJewishMom: I changed my mind. DUMP HIM! My spawn is right about that. Doesn’t matter how he feels…this isn’t about him. He should be able to man up and get over it for your sake.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Frankly, it’s more humiliating for HIM if he doesn’t show up! It comes off as incredibly insecure.
@CrazyJewishMom: Just dump the guy and climb back onto one of the old sperminator groomsmen you dated. Weddings are a great place to rekindle old flames!
