A very late update to my tifu I made three years ago!

I'm writing this post to eternalize this moment on reddit as today is my wedding day to the same guy I drunkly correlated liking him to having a lactose intolerance.

I rushed to reddit to be reassured about my dumb ass move and all of you have been so supportive and have even asked for an update! The past three years were really really great in a broad way, it wasn't perfect, and we had our ups and downs but I'm genuinely happy right now! I'm glad I fucked up, and I wish for all of you to fuck up and to keep fucking up despite how awful it might turn out (okay to some limit, I mean)

Also, he told me that he requested that they would write "Happy wedding day to us Lactose Intolerance! Hey don't write that, her name is Alex", on our wedding cake. Will post pictures if that turns out to be true lol. Also Bojack Horseman reference in case no one noticed.

You best be having milk at the reception.


DokterManhattan t1_ixw4zs1 wrote

Just make sure nobody spikes the milk with bath salts

Take my award for the random IASIP reference. Personally I think it makes it even better that it happened to be the “wholesome” award lol.


cyanidepancakes t1_ixwp9m1 wrote

I feel like this definitely qualifies for /r/bestofredditorupdates.


phoenixatknight t1_ixyoc7m wrote

Ditto, I expect to see it posted there in 7 days.


lattice12 t1_ixzkwz9 wrote

I give it until the end of the day


ParallelLynx t1_ixzsase wrote

Their rules require a 7 day wait after the post before being reposted in there


lattice12 t1_ixzyq6z wrote

Is that a new rule? I remember for a while it was getting ridiculous with new posts about updates to the same story every other day.


ParallelLynx t1_iy97r5i wrote

I couldn't say, I only found that subreddit about a month ago lol


LuvLaughLive t1_ixvh06v wrote

I love this story! ♥️ Hilarious with the 'awwww' factor. From one newlywed to a soon to be: Congratulations! (My marriage, my 1st & his 3rd, was also born from a fuck up 😆)

Aww! This is lovely. Good luck for today. Take a moment together to take it all in, it will go so quickly.

Huh, ain't that something. Turns out I upvoted the original post from three years ago.

RichAd195 t1_ixz5xke wrote

I really hope they make it work. When people say things like “we’ve had our ups and downs and it wasn’t perfect” that to me could go either way as a red flag or just someone being reflective.


The_Unreliable_94 t1_ixzbgp1 wrote

Having ups and downs in a relationship isn't a red flag. I'm pretty sure that most people argue with their SO's from time to time, but still work through the rough patches.


RichAd195 t1_iy1tzjk wrote

I didn’t say having ups and downs in a relationship was a red flag. Mentioning it the way she did seemed like it could be because sometimes that’s how people put things when they’re trying to justify their decisions.


Scary-Alternative-11 t1_ixvwoiy wrote

Happy wedding day to you both!!!! I hope it's magical and everything you dreamed of!!!


RemoteBroccoli t1_ixwjua4 wrote


And people say reddit is bad, heck, even evil.
And then, something like this comes along. A small glimpse in the absolute shitshow of the world, and we smile like no tomorrow, we cry out of happiness, and hug our cats. If we have cats that is. I have, and they use my beer belly as a personal place to sleep.

but this gives us hope, a feeling so distant from before, something we read about in books, and something that Samwise told us about, but in the last few years, have been only in the books, but not at home.

OP. Tell your loved one that an internet stranger is happy for you, and if you can, give them a hug from my and my cats.

This is the fucking cutest post I've ever seen on reddit. Life is one shitfuck of a thing isnt it? XD! GOOD LUCK IN YOUR UNION AND LIFE TOGETHER!!!

Instructions unclear…

“Happy wedding day lactose intolerance! Hey don’t write that, her name is Alex”


Avlonnic2 t1_ixyxe2a wrote

That will require a big cake, a tiny font, or both.

Awwww, how sweet! I wish you guys many happy years together


flatox t1_ixz2ypv wrote

Just remember that the wedding itself is not even 1% of what it means to be married.

People have forgotten that these days. I'm rooting for you guys though, you seem wholesomr fron what little info u have been able to read in both posts.

For you, for the Future You, for the Future You (kids if you choose to have them) ... enjoy these moments and look back at them as you 'earn' new "HAHAHAHA" moments as well as the "FML" moments.
-They all balance out. I hope- for you and yours.

I've had good, I've had bad, but what I've had day in and day out is a Spouse that has loved me and taken care of me and accepted me even when I've rejected, withdrawn, and as I've even had to pull her back into the world. Marriage is a compact built upon trust and care, and it sounds as if yours has the most solid foundation you can have- humour.

Good luck. I'd send you a wilted yellow rose with the caption of "From Bessie the Cow, I miss your suckling", but you know that might not go over as well as I'd hoped...


(For the record I do not know the OP but I remember the story)

An actual Reddit happy ending. That's rare. Happy for you two.

Tyzorg t1_ixxrbip wrote

This is absolutely adorable!! LOL. "Lactose intolerance"

Sometimes even though you feel completely embarrassed at the things you drunkenly text, it's your subconscious saying "HEY BRO.. JUST SAY IT"

Congraaaaaaats! 🫠


zitfarmer t1_ixxwtg0 wrote

I see you're getting married, but are you single?


kyttyna t1_ixy1vfn wrote


Since he calls you lactose intolerance still, I hope you call him milk.

I have a habit of honest drunken confessions too. It's sort of a running joke with my friends.

But I am also that super nice drunk in the bathroom who hypes you up.

But that just means my hype is earnest and real.

Plot Twist: he finds out you have a throwaway account that you actually didn’t throw away for three years, meaning that you are very diligent with secret stuff, shady abilities, may have other dirty secrets, so he ends up divorcing you in two-three more years. Keep us updated!

Update us when u get divorced too


MysticalElk t1_ixwws2p wrote

Yeah I'm assuming OP and her SO are about a year out of college. Dated for two years in college, he probably proposed just before or just after graduation, a literal third of their relationship time has been spent planning a wedding and the other two thirds were happy college fun times.

I've seen this exact formula happen and fail about 7 times already with people I was friends with and/or acquaintance of back in college and I'm not even 30 yet


tosch901 t1_ixykyxe wrote

I don't know what college you attended, but I don't know many people that had "happy college fun times" from 2020-2022.
