The man explained, “My girlfriend has an 8-year-old daughter with a heart condition. I have a 7-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son.”

His girlfriend’s daughter had medical-specific needs that they needed to work around. These included: only being able to rely on one babysitter and being back at the house by 7 pm so she could be in bed by 8 pm.

Planning day trips was difficult due to his girlfriend’s daughter’s need for a 2-3 hour nap at noon. They also had to work around the daughter’s hospital stays, which occurred every 14 days and required a 2-night stay.

Since the man had 50/50 custody of his own children, arranging a time for all the kids to together become a significant challenge.

The man had long been trying to plan a weekend trip to an amusement park, but the girlfriend insisted that the entire group adapt to her daughter’s nap schedule.

However, this meant their options were limited and the man’s kids would only have time for a few rides before having to leave for the daughter’s bedtime.

The man explained that his girlfriend wanted “to do something that would be more accessible to her daughter like the beach, and rent a place where we can do things in the house instead of having to go out all the time but my kids really want to do the amusement park trip.”

Eventually, the man told his girlfriend that they would be going to the amusement park, and she and her daughter were welcome to join. However, he made it clear that they wouldn’t be leaving early for naps or early bedtime.

Was The Man Wrong?

The girlfriend accused the man of dismissing her daughter’s needs, but he believed that she was neglecting the needs of everyone else involved.

The Internet Responded

One person said, “Take your children to the amusement park. Girlfriend and daughter can join or not. You had 2 kids before this gf, they should come first. They won’t be young for long and it would be a shame to miss this time of doing fun things with them. It’s not their fault you chose this gf, don’t make them suffer.”

Another Person Commented

“Honestly, who is in the right or in the wrong here seems irrelevant to me. If you cannot realistically accommodate your girlfriend’s disabled daughter without sacrificing your own children’s well-being (emotional included), then this relationship probably needs to end.”
