Mother of groom branded ‘creepy’ for awkwardly ‘spooning’ son in wedding photoJuly 16, 2019
When it comes to weddings, there’s often someone waiting in the wings to upstage the bride and ruin her big moment.
Recently that job has fallen to the mother-in-law, (the mother of the groom), who either turns up wearing a wedding dress of her own or attempts to ban certain people from the guest list.
But one mum has topped all of these shenanigans and managed to steal the spotlight off the happy couple in their own photos by doing something rather ‘creepy’.
The unnamed woman decided to adopt an awkward-looking pose as the photographer asked them to say cheese, making it look as if she was spooning her son from behind.
The bizarre photo was shared on Reddit’s Just No MIL thread, which sees people revealing the strange behaviour of their in-laws.
This post quickly garnered plenty of attention, with than 335 people commenting to share their disgust over the mum’s actions.
One person commented: “It looks like she’s seconds away from wrapping her leg around his thigh. Why don’t you just straddle him love.”
Another wrote: “Oh lord please grant [this couple] the serenity to move far far away from the clutches of this mother.”
A third simply said: “That’s beyond disturbing.”
“She looks like she’s desperately clutching his hand,” replied someone else. “It just looks awkward.”
“He’s making a fist but she’s not taking the hint,” pointed out a different user.
A sixth person added: “Totally creepy and I’m sure exactly what the groom wants on his big day.”
Others pointed out that as people were so focused on the mother-in-law, they’d missed that one of the other guests was wearing an “awesome” Darth Vader print shirt.
Someone replied to this particular comment, saying: “I did not see that, and now I can’t unsee. Glorious.”
