A young woman took to Reddit for opinions after she refused to let her cousin get married at the family vacation home. Turns out, it was already booked. Here is the full story.
They Were Strict
OP is a 28-year-old woman whose mother came from a large, very conservative family.
He Was Crushed
When OP’s mother got pregnant with her at 16, she became the black sheep of the family. Her dad was completely crushed.
They Took Her In
Even so, OP’s grandparents let their daughter and new granddaughter live with them for several years after the baby was born.
It All Blew Up
It all came crashing down when OP was 9 years old, though.
He Disowned Her
That’s when OP’s mother came out as gay to her parents. Her father booted them both from his house and disowned his daughter.
They Never Spoke
From that point forward, OP and her mother didn’t have much if any contact with the rest of the family.
It Was a Tough Time
But OP’s mother died during the COVID pandemic. And she heard through the grapevine that her grandfather also died around the same time.
She Was Sorry
With her family starting to die off, OP’s grandmother reached out to her. She wanted to apologize for the way she and the grandfather had behaved.
She Wanted to Make It Better
And the grandmother also wanted to reconnect and try to make amends with OP.
They Put It Behind Them
So over the course of the next year or so, OP grew much closer to her grandmother. They formed a strong bond and started to put the past behind them.
She Didn’t Make It
Sadly, though, OP’s grandmother also passed away toward the end of the pandemic.
They Had Money
That set off a bit of a family feeding frenzy, since OP’s grandparents were fairly well off.
She Loved the Place
Part of the estate was a big, fancy summer house that the family used as a vacation home. OP had been there a couple times when she was young and really loved her time there.
It Was the Big Prize
That house was one of the big prizes of the inheritance as far as OP’s family was concerned.
She Surprised Them All
But when OP’s grandmother’s will was read, everyone was in for a huge surprise.
They Got Peanuts
The grandmother left little bits of money for each of her children and grandchildren. But the big summer home went to OP herself.
It’s a Cash Machine
OP wasn’t ready to move to the place herself, so she turned it into an Airbnb. She makes a lot of money renting it out throughout the year.
She Doesn’t Care What They Think
The rest of the family was furious with both OP and her dead grandmother, but that wasn’t OP’s problem since she doesn’t even know them.
She Had Some News
Until it was, when OP’s aunt contacted her recently with some news.
They Were Going to Celebrate
It seemed that one of OP’s cousins was getting married the following summer, and she was planning to use the family vacation home as the wedding venue.
They Had Big Plans
That was family tradition, according to OP’s aunt, and the wedding had been planned for a long time.
She Was Already Booked
But OP checked the calendar and told her aunt the place was already rented out during the weekend of the wedding.
They Could Pay For It
OP told her aunt they’d have to find another wedding venue. Or they could rent her place on another date when it was still available.
Now They Want to Talk to Her
That made the aunt furious all over again, and now the rest of the family is blowing up OP’s phone to tell her what a terrible person she is.
Money Is Thicker Than Bad Relatives
OP doesn’t intend to back down, though, as the money she makes from the Airbnb is just too good.
She’s Totally Justified
Redditors mostly think OP is justified for denying her aunt’s demands. The place is hers, after all, and she can do what she wants with it.
A few people think OP might be able to make a compromise, though. They say it wasn’t the aunt and cousin who alienated OP, and they had the rug pulled out from under their feet.
