    To exclude children from a wedding, whilst not something I would do, is understandable for a long list of reasons. Alcohol consumption, tiring easily, becoming bored..... The list goes on.
    The list you come up with for excluding children is the same reasons you could make for someone with a disability.

    People with disabilities are humans, they just have a disability.

    Children are humans. They just haven't grown up yet.

    Why can't it be up to the child's parent to decide if they want their kids around alcohol, up late at night, somewhere boring?

    Default Spinoff from 'no kids at weddings'

    Disgusting. What a self centered, egocentric bridezilla. Especially because other kids his age have been invited. I can't believe the groom has backed down though. Grow a set!!!

    Children get to grow up and attend weddings as adults. If this man is constantly being treated like this, he will never be given that opportunity and he is already an adult. How unfair It's fücking disgusting.
    Good point children will be able to make their own minds up in future, he won't.

    I think that is disgusting!

    I have a 19 year old cousin with a disability & none of our family would ever even consider excluding her.. She's part of our family- full stop.

    Would you be expected to be terrified of one of your guests for your entire wedding, just so that the family doesn't get angry/upset?? Is your "special day" not a day for you to be happy and relaxed and surrounded by people you love and who love you??
    I'm not saying she doesn't love him, but it's possible she's made uncomfortable and is scared of him.
    I'm not married, but I didn't know that the wedding day was all about the bride. I thought there was a groom involved as well... It's HIS day as well, and he wants his cousin there, and it is really important to him. If she is fearful, hypothetically, she is going to have a very long uncomfortable life, and she is going to need to face that head on. Oh my goodness, she just sounds like a mega ****. If I was him, I would be calling off the wedding. Big time.
