A man had gone through a divorce several years ago, and it had an unexpected impact on his relationship with his daughter. This would eventually lead to him making a serious financial decision, one that would not prove popular with his family.
A Ruined Relationship
The man explained how was once close with his his daughter, but this changed after his divorce: “She took my wife’s side, which I was pretty upset and surprised about. She was 12 when we separated and we were very close. I didn’t hold in against her because she’s a kid, and I still make an effort to see her.”
A New Beginning
Four years ago, the man met his current wife, who had dreams of pursuing a law degree. In a gesture of love and support, he offered to pay for her law school, wanting to start their married life without the burden of debt.
A Sacrifice Made
To fulfill his promise, the man decided to use his daughter’s college fund to finance his wife’s education, with plans to replenish it later. He thought this was reasonable, as his daughter had expressed interest in becoming a makeup artist and had stated that “college sucks.”
A Change of Heart
However, this decision proved to be highly problematic. “Apparently her mindset changed because she’s started talking about college,” the man explained. “She said that she was aiming to study computer science at a top private college.”
Asking for Her College Fund
Subsequently, the daughter asked her father if she had a college fund, or whether she would have to get loans or a job to fund her new dream. Little did she know, she originally did have a college fund, but the man had spent it all on his new wife.
The Harsh Reality
The man decided to be honest with his daughter. “I told her the truth and explained that right now, there’s not enough money for even a year at a private college,” he recounted. “She started crying and told me that she couldn’t believe that I chose my new wife over my own daughter.”
A Tearful Confrontation
The daughter’s anger escalated, making harsh remarks about the man’s wife. He responded by suggesting that she wasn’t serious about school two years ago, and might not even get into a private college. These comments led to her calling him a “bad dad” and storming out.
An Escalating Conversation
The man attempted to defend his decision, but it didn’t go well: “I told her she was getting a fund, just not private school tuition and not right now. Unfortunately, this really did not help the situation.”
The Mother’s Perspective
Naturally, the man’s ex-wife contacted him, furious about their altercation and highlighting their daughter’s achievements, including her involvement in a prestigious science fair. She accused him of not being supportive, and of incredible stupidity for spending his daughter’s college fun on his new wife.
Sticking to His Decision
However, the man remained firm in his decision, even considering revoking his daughter’s college fund completely. He believed that she didn’t deserve it given her behavior, leading to his daughter refusing to see him and starting to address him by his first name.
The man headed online to vent his frustrations with his daughter, seeking validation on his firm decision. However, all he received was hate. “It sounds like you resent your daughter for choosing her mother over you,” one commenter pointed out. “Why did you two break up? Did you cheat? Judging by your attitude, that wouldn’t surprise me.”
Doesn’t Know His Daughter
Many readers emphasized how the man showed no understanding to his daughter. “You clearly don’t even know her… you thought that 12-years-old was enough for you to decide it was too late for her to get into a good school and so there was no reason to save for her education?” criticized another reader.
One reader made an interesting observation. “Wait, you have been married to your new wife for 4 years and paid for her to go to law school, and now your daughter is applying to college… please don’t tell me your wife is only like 5 years older than your daughter?!”
A Serious Update
The comment section escalated seriously when the man admitted that he had cheated on his ex-wife, which led to their divorce. “So your wife was your affair partner, whom you spent your daughter’s college fund on… wow dude, you’re a terrible person.”
Another reader commented on this revelation. “Why were you so surprised when your daughter favored her mother over you after the divorce? You literally broke up the family, of course she is going to view you differently!”
