Your wedding day should be one of the best days of your life – a celebration of love between you and your partner.
So when a man found out that his wife and sister had been brought to tears by the church deacon just minutes before the ceremony, he knew he had to get revenge.
The Happiest Day of Their Lives
The day of the original poster’s (OP’s) wedding should have been one of the happiest days of his life. After all, he was marrying the love of his life and surrounded by his friends and family.
However, what should have been a perfect day was ruined by a deacon at the church where they were married.
A Church Wedding
His wife had always dreamed of getting married in a church, so despite his own reservations, he agreed to have the ceremony in a church to make her happy.
Little did he know that it would lead to an unforgettable and infuriating experience.
It Was Perfect, Until…
Everything seemed perfect as the OP and his bride walked down the aisle, surrounded by friends and family.
The ceremony went smoothly, and they exchanged their vows with tears of joy in their eyes.
He Noticed Something Was Amiss
But after the ceremony, they were talking to the guests, and OP noticed that his sister, who was part of the wedding party, was teary-eyed.
Concerned, he approached her and asked why she was crying. She wouldn’t budge, but he knew something was wrong.
His Wife Revealed the Truth
It wasn’t until later that he found out his wife had also been crying before the ceremony.
The reason why? His wife had been told by a Deacon that she couldn’t walk down the aisle because she didn’t have a veil.
He Was Outraged
Just moments before she was supposed to say, “I do,” she was told that she wasn’t allowed to proceed without a veil.
OP was fuming with rage. How could someone ruin his wife’s special day like that? He was sure that his sister’s tears were likely due to the same Deacon.
He Put a Brave Face On
OP’s anger burned deep within him. He wanted to make a scene, to confront the Deacon right then and there, but his friends advised him to let it go and deal with it later.
So he put on a brave face and continued with the wedding, determined to make the best of the day for his wife’s sake.
The rest of the wedding day went smoothly, with everyone enjoying the festivities and celebrating their love.
And Then He Took Action
However, once the honeymoon was over, the OP decided to take action. He went to the church – not once, not twice, but three times.
He calmly, but with a seething rage inside him, went to the front office and demanded to speak with someone in charge.
A Professional Arguer
As a lawyer, he was no stranger to arguing, and he used every legal skill he had to express his outrage and demand justice for his wife and sister.
He Wouldn’t Back Down
OP refused to back down until he got answers. He demanded that the Deacon receive punishment, that he apologize face-to-face, and that there be some form of repercussion or retribution for his actions.
He wouldn’t rest until he saw justice served. Despite facing resistance and pushback from the church staff, the OP persisted, fueled by his determination to make things right.
This Went on for Months
Months went by, and OP continued his relentless pursuit of justice. He repeatedly visited the church, sent emails, made phone calls, and refused to let the matter go. His persistence paid off.
The church eventually informed OP that they had fired the Deacon! And they also told him that this Deacon had had a “reputation,” whatever that meant.
This Deacon’s Bad Reputation
The OP felt a sense of satisfaction, knowing that his efforts had resulted in the Deacon facing the consequences for his actions.
He’d Gotten Vengeance
Through his tenacity and an unwavering pursuit of justice, the OP had not only achieved vengeance for his wife and sister but also helped bring to light the Deacon’s questionable reputation.
He Felt Relieved
He couldn’t help but feel a sense of relief and satisfaction in knowing that he had made a difference and held the Deacon accountable for his misconduct.
He’s Still Angry, but at Least the Deacon Was Gone
Looking back, the OP is still angry about what happened on his wedding day, but he’s glad that he was able to mete out some vengeance.
His sister still hasn’t told him what made her cry that day, but he thinks that it was the Deacon’s actions that had caused her pain.
Redditors loved this guy’s story.
One user said, “Yeah, employees that have a ‘reputation’ need to be taught a lesson. Congrats on getting that done. There are too many of them in the world that get away with this kind of crap without repercussions.”
