A woman has confessed to calling the police on her stepsister's wedding after she claims the woman took a precious item from her home.
The anonymous woman, 32, detailed the incident in a post to Reddit, explaining the issue began when her stepsister took a necklace belonging to her late mother.
Commenting on the "traumatic loss" of her mother, the woman writes, "I just couldn't and didn't want to accept her death. It was unfair, untimely, and preventable."

"I got in therapy and was doing better but I had issues with my dad's new wife and her daughter who's 25 and just got married weeks ago."
Noting the step-siblings did not have a "close relationship", the woman maintains they were always "cordial enough" in front of the family.

The pair were initially quite distant from one another, until the woman's father fell ill and the two sides of the family "had to see each other a lot."
Explaining she moved in with her father to care for him while he was sick, the woman says she brought all of the belongings her mother left her to the home.
"My stepsister showed interest in my mum's necklace and asked if she could borrow it to wear it at her wedding," she writes. © GettyThe woman refused to let her sister take her late mother's necklace to her wedding.
"I refused and she tried every method to convince me. I had to put it in a place where I thought it'd be safe after my stepmother got involved."
The woman says her stepsister and stepmother continued to pester her for the necklace in the leadup to the wedding.
"I stood my ground and told them how serious I was, so they backed off," she shared.
On the day of the wedding, which the woman and her father did not attend, she noticed the necklace was missing from the home.
"After searching for hours, I called my step-mum and she said not to worry. My stepsister took it and will return it when the wedding is over, but it was clear that I won't see it til after the honeymoon since she said her daughter was staying at a hotel," she writes.
"I screamed at her to return it, but she argued about not wanting to leave the guests and the wedding [had] already started. I told her I'd get it myself, but she forbade me from coming saying she'd have to keep me out for wanting to make a scene." © GettyBride threatens to uninvite parents over money.
From there, the woman called the police, prompting them to retrieve the necklace from the step-sister during her wedding proceedings.
"She and my step-mum were in shock and livid," she explains.
When the bride and her mother returned home, a screaming match ensued. The woman claims they shouted at her and called her "petty and crazy" for calling the police and "ruining" the wedding over a piece of jewellery.
"I defended myself saying I only wanted an item that belonged to me THAT THEY TOOK WITHOUT PERMISSION returned," the woman says.
"She argued further that I could've waited to get it back but I chose to burn the bridge with my stepsister and said that she considers me dead after this.
"All I can say is it was a bad night."
The woman's post drew widespread support from Reddit users, with more than 1200 comments posted. © iStockThe bride claimed her stepsister was 'dead' to her.
Most people sided with the woman, one writing, "Don't want the police at your wedding? Don't steal your stepsister's necklace and then brag about it. Seems easy enough to me."
"She was in the wrong, they both were wrong! You don't want the respect of people like that, because their respect would make you wonder if you are turning out like them," commented another.
One person claimed the action was a "crime" and could even be worth "pressing charges".
A fourth simply said "get a safety deposit box like ... yesterday."
