The wedding industrial complex seems to stubbornly resist change even as society evolves (thanks a lot, The Bachelor franchise!). This is why we still often see dated traditions like dads "giving away" their daughters, women wearing white as a symbol of their "virginity" (lol nice try, brides), and the bridal party being divided up in to bridesmaids and best men.
Of course, many couples are choosing to opt out of these traditions. But if there's one thing people hate, it's change. A bride who is having a hard time with the thought of her husband bucking gender roles at their wedding shared her story on Reddit's "Am I The A**hole?" forum, hoping for some insight. She got it, that's for sure!!!
My fiancé and I are planning our wedding, and today he said that he is planning on having his female friend be his best man, making her the “best woman”.
