On a recent Reddit thread subreddit, a teenager asked if she was in the wrong for telling her dad she would never forgive him if he took her grandparents to court.
A Sad Start
The teenage girl in question is 16. Her mom has recently been diagnosed with Ovarian cancer, which has sadly spread throughout her body.
Care at Home
Her mom put up a good fight, but about a month ago, her doctors decided it would be best if she went home on hospice – her mom agreed.
Grandparents to the Rescue
Since her diagnosis, her mom has had multiple treatments for cancer at the hospital. During this time, the teenager’s grandparents took temporary custody of her because her mom was too ill to look after her.
Life at Her Dads
This teenage girl usually spends the weekends at her dad’s house – she has since her parents divorced when she was five. She enjoys spending them there.
Five years ago, her dad married her now stepmom, and she gained two stepsisters. Her dad’s house is small, and her stepsisters share a room.
A Devoted Daughter
She has to sleep on a sofa in the living room whenever she stays, so it isn’t an ideal place to visit all the time. Now ever since her mom went home on hospice, this teenage girl has wanted to spend as much time as possible with her.
Her Compassionate Grandparents
Her grandparents haven’t forced her to go to her dad’s; they understand she wants to spend time with her sickly mother.
Her Dad Isn’t Happy
However, this has upset her dad, who has taken it personally, despite her explaining she wants to spend more time with her dying mom.
The Events of Today
The girl’s upset dad and wife visited her at her grandparent’s house today. He argued with her grandparents. He was angry that they hadn’t encouraged her to see him more often.
These Grandparents Rock
Her grandparents argued back, explaining that she could make her own decisions and had every right to want to spend time with her mom, especially considering her condition.
Threats Are Given
Her dad was annoyed by this, and he brought up the divorce court agreement that says she must see him weekly. He threatened her grandparents by saying he’ll take them to court if he had to.
She Stands up for Her Family
This threat was too much for the teenager, and she had to step in. She told him, “If you make us deal with family court while my mom is on hospice and we’re just trying to spend as much time together as possible I’ll never forgive you.”
The Wicked Stepmother
Her stepmom called her a brat for trying to “guilt trip” her dad. Her stepmom said she understands she wants to spend time with her mom, but that doesn’t mean she can just stop seeing her dad.
Her Mom’s Wishes
The teenage girl explained in her Reddit post that her mom wants her to live with her grandparents full-time but continue seeing her dad on weekends if she wants to. She concluded her post by asking if she was the jerk.
She Was Not in the Wrong
With over 13,000 upvotes, Reddit users loved Bitter-Conflict-4089’s comment. They said the girl was not in the wrong because “his wife called you names and he allowed it.”
