A woman consulted an online forum if she was being unjust for not paying for her son’s wedding while bearing the whole cost of her daughter’s wedding.
Getting Pregnant Early
The woman’s son had a child not long after high school and she ended up raising the baby.
“His girlfriend at the time got pregnant right after they graduated high school, and I practically raised their baby girl up until they both graduated college and got jobs.”
Her Daughter Missed Out.
Owing to raising the infant, the woman’s daughter missed out on important time and attention from her mom.
“During this time, I had my full focus on my grandchild, which caused me to very stupidly not pay enough attention to my daughter. We’ve made up since and I’ve been making up for lost time with her.”
Two Weddings, One Payment.
As it turns out, both of the woman’s children are getting hitched to their respective partners.
“I’m paying for her wedding but I never paid anything for my son’s. I felt like I’d already done and spent more than enough for their family that there was no reason for me to.”
A Rift Is Forming.
“I got them a good gift and a chunk of change and deemed it enough. He’s been causing issues with me and his sister about this and has been slandering us on Facebook, saying it’s unfair how I’m paying for her wedding but not his.”
The woman understands why her son is upset, but she feels she has spent so much time and money on his needs.
“Honestly, paying for her wedding doesn’t even seem enough for what I did.”
She Wants To Know if She’s in the Wrong.
The woman asked the online community if this decision made her an unfair parent.
“I don’t know how to feel right now and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could give me feedback on this.”
Definitely Not Unfair.
The people online assured her she was far from the unfair mom.
“Tell them you used his wedding fund to raise their child for them.”
Many users felt the only AITA in this scenario was the woman’s son.
“*Applause*. The son sounds really unappreciative of how OP [original poster] has contributed to their everyday life.”
She Carved Out Their Life for Them.
“OP, you enabled them to complete their studies in order to better provide for their family, whilst anyone else in their situation would have found themselves in dead-end jobs, trying to make ends meet, and struggling to finish their education. Your son should be grateful; instead, he’s being selfish and ungrateful! NTA.”
“Why do people with the healthiest & most generous families appreciate them the least? Seems like it’s human nature to value everything you don’t have, or worse, what someone else has, & nothing you do.”
