Jilted Bride Turns Her Cancelled Wedding Reception into a Dinner for the Poor

Yiru Sun of New York City was supposed to get married. She had a grand event planned, including an elaborate wedding reception. Then her fiancé handed her a prenuptial agreement to sign. She said no, and with that, the engagement was off.

Sun had spent a lot of money on the wedding, including an $8,000 non-refundable deposit on the reception. Rather than simply wasting that money, she decided to use her deposit to offer a party to people in need. The New York Post quotes her:

“Three weeks later, I woke up with this idea,” Sun, herself a single mom of a 6-year-old daughter, told her guests, who were chosen with help from The Salvation Army and Inwood House.

“At that moment, I started to think it was God’s plan,” she said of turning her misfortune into a great party.

“I cannot be the princess of my wedding day, but I can give the kids a fairy tale.” […]

The kids were treated to face-painting and balloons and were touched by Sun’s story, at least as far as they understood it.

Wait . . . what?
A prenup initiated by the fiance indicates his presumption of future divorce, not hers! She is certainly a woman of sterling character, and well rid of the bum.
