A woman asked an online community if she was wrong for going to a concert instead of attending her mother’s wedding.
“My mom is getting remarried (my birth father passed away a while ago). A few weeks ago I won Taylor Swift tickets on the radio for the same day as her wedding. I decided to go to the concert over the wedding, and I told her this, and she is distraught – she has not spoken to me since.”
“I love my mother and feel bad missing her wedding, but I thought she would understand due to the circumstances. I do not like my soon-to-be stepfather, and seeing Taylor Swift is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I do not want to miss.”
“Also – I have made it very clear to my mom over the past few months that I am not okay with the marriage but still plan to be at the wedding. But then I won the tickets, and things changed. So, AITA for choosing the concert over the wedding?”
The online community largely agreed that this woman is being selfish.
“YTA. Did you choose Taylor Swift over your mom? Weird.”
It’s Time To Go.
Users agreed she had options to both enjoy the TS show and attend her mom’s wedding.
“Sell the tickets, get tickets to her other concerts next time? Swap tickets with someone going on other dates of the same concert?”
Should’ve Said No.
“Did Taylor Swift birth her? Did Taylor Swift raise her? Does Taylor Swift love her unconditionally? Does Taylor Swift even know who she is? No, but her mother did and does. This is such a shallow thing for OP [original poster] to do. Offering support and snatching it away over tickets to see someone who doesn’t even know she exists.”
I Knew You Were Trouble.
Some users agreed it was okay to forgo the wedding because of the stepdad issue.
“I get parents have lives too, but in my experience, when kids don’t like a potential step-parent, it’s because said step-parent is a proper problem.”
The Best Day.
“OP, as long as you make a decision that feels right for you, that you can live with (because you will have to live with whatever decision you make), you are NTA.
When you decide, consider how you might feel about it in 5/10 years.”
You Need to Calm Down.
“Swifties are the most delusional and irrational fanbase I’ve ever seen. If it were any other artist, I’d agree with the ‘the fact OP is considering so and so over mom’ comment… but again, the TS fan base is not sane.”
“With all the seriousness in the world, they will look you dead in the eyes and tell you TS sings better than Whitney Houston did and is a far superior vocal artist. Delusional the whole lot of em.”
As Far as the Online Forum Is Concerned, There’s No Question.
The majority of the commenters do not believe that the OP is making the right decision.
