Woman Divorced 3 Times Furious After Father Refuses to Fund 4th Wedding

At which point should a parent draw the line on funding their child’s lifestyle?

For many people, a wedding is an incredibly exciting event because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. This is exactly why people are willing to spend on average tens of thousands of dollars on their big day.

With that said, a 30% divorce rate in the US shows that it's not a once-a-lifetime celebration for everyone. And a majority of those who get divorced will go on to remarry again down the line.

These realities were highlighted in a recent online post in which a woman is about to get married for the fourth time, and her father refuses to pay for her wedding.

At which point should a parent draw the line on funding their child’s lifestyle?

A Reddit post published on November 18th, reported on by Taylor McCloud from Newsweek, has gone viral with 11,300 upvotes and 2,100 comments.

The author begins his post by explaining that his daughter is 32 years old, and has already been divorced three times. He also adds that he's funded each one of his daughter's weddings.

Clarifying further, he indicates that she first got married at age 25 to ‘the love of her life’, and he gave her $15,000 to help out with the wedding. However, the couple got divorced, and she once again got married to the next ‘love of her life’ when she was 30 years old. He contributed $5,000 that time.

With that said, the author's daughter got pregnant while she was still married to her second husband, and she went on to marry the father of her child. However, the pair got divorced before his grandson was even 1-year-old.

Does every person have multiple soulmates?

The author explains wearily that his daughter has met ‘the love of her life’ for the 4th time, and has asked for her father to contribute money to her next wedding ceremony.

He ultimately declined the offer, citing that he has already contributed to three of her weddings, and that it was unreasonable of her to expect him to pay for her 4th. She is now very upset and called her father a jerk for 'not believing in her future'.

What do you think? Is the author entirely justified to refuse to fund his daughter's fourth wedding, considering he funded the first three? Or is he indeed dooming his daughter's marriage to fail if he won't provide any funds for the wedding?
