Her original Facebook announcement received a string of reactions and comments, before it was screengrabbed and shared on the group That's it I'm wedding shaming.

People were quick to share their thoughts, with one person commenting: "Obviously they are not related but that doesn’t make it fine.

"The family dynamics and relationship structures have changed. It’s a lot for kids to deal with. Separate the kids. Get some family therapy."

Another said: "Oh God what a mess and what a fun situation to explain to people in the future."

However, others did relate to the bride-to-be's difficult situation.

One person said: "This actually happened with a girl I went to school with, their parents did still get married and now the kids are engaged and have two kids."

Another wrote: "It’s weird but not unheard of. Go get married... just maybe not adopt each others kids? What a mess indeed."

By law, people who are step relations can marry in certain circumstances as they don’t share any blood parents.

However, they are urged to seek legal advice first due to there being strict requirements.
