I wanted to know how common this is? This has nothing to do with my opinion, I know someone that continuously repeats this and it makes me question other married couples.
The married couple has a list of all gifts and monies received from their wedding day (especially who attended and did not attend the shower/parties). Whenever they are invited to one of their guests weddings, this couple reviews their gift list to see what that person gave them. Example: if guest B gave them $25 as a wedding gift (even if they were broke, out of work, or etc...), the married couple would also give $25. They said that it is not fair for them to give every newly wedded couple $100 if those people gave them less than $100 for their wedding gift. When the couple told me that (which was more than 3x they brought this topic up), they asked what I thought. In my opinion, I (not what others think) said my gift is based on how I feel about the married couple and what I can afford. The married couple looked at me and said that I was weird. My overall discussion is....is it common to see married couples review their past wedding gifts and give the exact same amount ($) of gift to their future wedded guests? What if they were invited to someone's wedding and THAT someone was never invited to their wedding?
