So, according to the original poster (OP), she and her ex-husband divorced amicably and are now co-raising their three children without issue. And recently, the author’s ex-husband has remarried. The OP admits that she likes her ex-future wife, Stephanie, especially because she treats her kids well and makes her father happy.
When it came to the wedding, the groom sent the OP a personal invitation, but Stephanie probably expected her to politely decline with a plausible excuse. I thought so. In general, women wore the most gorgeous red dresses and took their children with them to their weddings. Noting that I was invited, I said yes.
The original poster caught everyone’s attention thanks to her flashy outfit. In fact, almost every guest knew very well who she was to the groom. A real scandal erupted and only the groom and his mother were able to calm Stephanie down at least a little.
As for the original poster, she sincerely refused to understand why her spectacular appearance upset the bride so much. I said I had no intention of stealing at all. As you can imagine, the wedding was completely ruined…
