A man’s behavior on the way to his honeymoon is dividing people after he took his wife’s business class upgrade on the flight to their honeymoon, leaving her in economy.

Getting married is usually one of the happiest moments in a couple’s life, and a relaxing honeymoon together is often the icing on the cake.

But one bride started life with her newlyweds quite tired after having to sit in economy class on their flight while her husband used her airline points to spend it without her in business class.

The story, which the bride shared on Reddit’s famous ‘Am I The A**hole’ forum, was quickly flooded with comments – including some urging her to reconsider marriage – after she revealed how the situation played out .

She explained: “I (33F) recently married my husband (30M) and we took a 3 hour flight to Mexico for our honeymoon.

“I fly a lot for work so I’ve been putting in a lot of miles. My husband is not a big fan of flying, although he has gotten better and tends to just hold my hand and close his eyes during takeoff and landing (usually okay in the air).

“When I booked our flights, I asked to use my points if an upgrade to business class became available, but I made it clear that I only wanted the upgrade if two seats became available and then basically forgot about it.”

However, things went wrong on the day of their flight when the excited newlywed bride checked the couple in online for their flight to their honeymoon.

When they arrived at the boarding gate, the person checking them in revealed that her husband’s ticket had been upgraded to business class, but not hers.

She continued: “She says it looks like my husband got an upgrade to business class, but ONLY him, and asks if that’s okay. I immediately say no, we are on our honeymoon and would like to stay together.

“But then my husband steps in and says, ‘No, it’s fine, I’m going to business class!’ I look at him in complete shock and he tells me that I fly all the time and have been in business class before, but he deserves the chance to experience it.’

The unnamed bride said she felt pressure to agree as they were now queuing to get on the plane, but added: “To say I’m pissed off is an understatement. He just smiles and sits down. and I go back to my seat where they put me next to an old woman with a baby on her lap, where my husband should be sitting.

“Within maybe 5-10 minutes of me sitting there, trying to hold back my tears because my husband left me alone on our flight on our honeymoon (and using MY points for his upgrade no less), he starts texting me saying he’s worried about flying, I ignore the texts and stop looking at my phone.”

About an hour into the flight, the selfish groom, after his requests for reassurance about his fear of flying were ignored by his bride, walked back to the economy section, where he offered the woman half of the luxury breakfast he had in business class got. .

“(He) asks me why I ignored him – that he was scared and that I should tell him it would be okay since I’m such an experienced pilot. I told him maybe he should have thought about that before he left me alone, our honeymoon has really begun,” she continued.

“He gets angry, tells me this might be the only time he gets to fly business class and he gave me half his breakfast to make up for it so I could at least support his genuine fear. I roll with my eyes, says sarcastically ‘thanks’ and goes back to his seat.”

Things didn’t get much better when they arrived in Mexico, as the woman wrote, “When we landed I tried to just move on and forget about it so we could just enjoy our honeymoon but the guilt made me scared that I had not comforted. via text before I left and now I’m wondering if I’m being unreasonable and should have just let him enjoy his time in business class and reassure him that it would be okay. So AITA (Am I the bastard?)”

Unsurprisingly, most people took the groom’s behavior as a dire warning, writing: “NTA (not the a**hole), but I’m afraid you’re confused. You didn’t just get married. You just adopted an adult child,” and, “NTA – he was happy to dump you when the opportunity arose, but he’s mad that you weren’t ‘there’ to comfort him?”

Others suggested the couple reconsider their marriage, saying: “NTA – He thinks flying business class is more important than spending time with you at the start of your honeymoon. His priorities are not clear..” and: “NTA. Dear “This is not a good start. Please do not combine your finances or make any major purchases in the coming years. You may want to reconsider this marriage. “I’m sorry, but he just showed you who he really is.”

One even added: ‘I don’t understand why you two are married. It seems like you two don’t really like each other.’

Another wrote: “NTA. So on your honeymoon he took an upgrade you deserved and let you stay on the coach again? YIKES. I’m honestly surprised he didn’t fly home alone.”

Others believed both were wrong, writing: “ESH (everyone is bad here), maybe a little YTA (you’re the asshole).

“All the NTA votes shock me to be honest. Both people in the story are selfish, the OP (original poster) unbelievable (read OP’s post again, it’s all about her, her points, her chair, her, her, her, she doesn’t care about her husband at all), and both have contempt for the other. You’re on your honeymoon and you respond sarcastically and look at your new husband, why on earth did you get married in the first place?

“OP has flown many times, knows her husband is a nervous flyer, has been in business class before and her husband has not, and instead of just saying ‘this would be a nice thing I could do for my husband,’ I it, I, I, my, my, my My perspective, my points, MY seat.

“This woman is ridiculously self-centered. The man is also a**b.”

Another wrote: “I’ve been married for almost ten years, together for seventeen years. This is so small. You were both wrong.

“Have an open, calm conversation and explain again why you were upset. Apologize sincerely. You have choices. You can use this to grow and understand each other better. You can throw away your honeymoon feeling irritated. “

“The way you deal with these little issues and learn to cope with them can really help you get through the tough stuff together. Think of it as training for your relationship.”

One commenter also added: “Assuming this story is real, it’s embarrassing that you’re both in your 30s.”
