A man re-marries after his wife passed away, his new wife’s family is extroverted, while his son is more introverted. He plans a Mother’s Day party for his new wife, but he overhears a conversation between his new wife and son which forces him to cancel the whole thing. Here’s what he had to say:
He Was On Good Terms With His New Family
“I have a 13-year-old son. I was a widower when I met my now wife. She has a 16-year-old daughter from another relationship. The family is often on pretty good terms.”
Their Children Had Different Personalities
His son is introverted and tends to keep to himself, but it doesn’t worry him. On the other hand, his wife and stepdaughter are outgoing and often encourage the son to engage in social activities and spend time with extended family.
He Asked Them To Respect His Son’s Wishes
The man explained what happened next, “My son complained about having to be forced out of his comfort zone and having his need for space invalidated. I spoke to both my wife and stepdaughter and asked them to give him space and freedom to spend his time however he wanted. they apologized and promised to let him be.”
He Planned A Suprise For His Wife
With Mother’s Day approaching, the man planned a surprise celebration for his wife – but the surprise was ruined when the stepdaughter told his wife about it in advance!
He arrived home early to finish his planning but overheard a conversation between his wife, stepdaughter, and son. His wife was asking the son to convince the man to let him stay home instead of going to the restaurant for the celebration.
And Was Shocked By What He Heard
The man heard his wife explain that his son’s introverted and socially awkward character would make her family uncomfortable and ruin the mood. His son said he would make an effort to talk to everyone, but his wife dismissed this.
She then snapped and said that technically, she wasn’t his mother and questioned why he wanted to celebrate Mother’s Day with her so badly! The stepdaughter made a backhanded comment, and that’s when both of them noticed the man standing there. Everyone fell silent.
He Made His Decision
The man told his son and stepdaughter to go to their rooms and then informed his wife that the celebration was canceled. She tried to argue and explain that the conversation was misunderstood, but the man refused to engage and stood by his decision.
They Left The House
The wife became increasingly upset and threw tantrums, but the man ignored her. Early the next morning, his wife took her daughter and went to stay with her parents.
Did The Man Do The Right Thing?
The man felt upset but, above all, hurt by the harsh comments directed at his son.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “Guarantee they have done this before. Circle the wagons, protect your son. Such disgusting abuse from your wife upon your son. To make it even worse, she is raising her daughter to be cruel and exclusionary. Your son deserves so much better.”
Another Person Commented
“Your poor son. Please tell me you went to talk to him after this. Your wife wants your son left out. I’d be having a serious conversation about that. If she doesn’t drop it, if she doesn’t start treating your son as a part of the family, I hate to say this but divorce her, because no woman is worth losing your child over.”
