Woman refuses to invite her brother’s boyfriend to her wedding, asks him to pretend to be straight

A gay man’s sister refused to invite his partner of five years to her wedding because her soon-to-be husband comes from a religious family, and the internet has thoughts. The man posted on the subreddit “Am I the A**hole”, a community on the social media platform Reddit which describes itself as: “A catharsis for the frustrated moral philosopher in all of us, and a place to finally find out if you were wrong in an argument that’s been bothering you.” In the post, which has since been removed, he wanted...

In Texas, justices of the peace do not have to perform weddings, but by doing so they can bring in extra income. Many judges chose not to perform weddings at all...
