Infertility can be heartbreaking. People who want to build their families and are unable to do so go through difficult times and this can lead to depression.
How? The shame and prevalent questioning from people may add pressure to an already burdened psiqué.
People have to learn to be understanding and thoughtful when dealing with individuals who are facing infertility problems.
Sometimes, people wrongly treat infertile individuals without even realizing it, just like in the case of this bride.
An anonymous bride has complained about how insensitive the wedding presents she received from a guest were.
The bride went on social media to narrate how she received a pregnancy test, pacifiers, and onesies as presents.
You might think there’s nothing wrong with such a present, but here’s the thing: the bride is infertile.
Her tweet was shared on a wedding shaming account on Facebook, where she further explained that her guests knew she was infertile and didn’t want children, but they constantly called her selfish for not wanting kids.
“These people know I’m infertile, and they know I don’t want to have kids.”
Her post got a lot of comments on how irresponsible and mean the present was.
“This is incredibly weird and unacceptable, nothing would make that okay as a wedding gift.”
What other wedding gifts are a no-no?
- Kinky gifts;
- Picture frames.
It is advised to be sensitive when offering people gifts for their wedding. When the soon-to-be-married couple has a gift list, try as much as possible to stick to it rather than offending the couple in the end.
