- The unnamed woman said back in July, her partner proposed during a family gathering and she said yes, but then later said no
- After she looked at the ring, the lady noticed it had her lover's family name engraved on it, then asked her boyfriend why he did not consult her before assuming she would drop her last name
Social media users are still in shock after a lady refused to walk down the aisle with the love of her life over what they termed as a flimsy reason.
The woman turned down her partner’s proposal because he assumed she would take his last name after the two got married.
The unnamed woman asked Reddit users whether she was a heartless person for making the drastic decision.
According to the 23-year-old, she and her 36-year-old boyfriend had attended a family gathering back in July 2020.
Her man got on one knee and popped the question. The pair had dated for only four months. She excitedly accepted and started admiring the ring five minutes later.
That was when the woman noticed something was amiss. According to her confession, her man had engraved her name on the ornament.
Beside her name was her boyfriend’s family name and that set off her alarms.
“I handed him back the ring in front of everyone and told him it was beautiful but he had no right to assign me his name. I was not to be his property,” she narrated.
The lady said she had hoped that her man would have asked for her opinion before making such a decision without consulting her.
Briefly.co.za had also told a story of a man who planned to take his wife’s last name once they got married.
Identified as Ryan Morrison, the US man explained he would take his wife's name, Miyoshi, once they get married. Ryan revealed his grandfather, who was a priest, had picked a random surname from a phonebook to keep his family a secret.
According to him, his wife's last name was a better choice as it can be traced back for hundreds of years.
