Some families fight more than others, but not every family fight escalates like this. u/Plus-Climate2355 opened up on Reddit’s
r/AmITheA**hole subreddit this week with this thread about his dysfunctional family dynamic.
According to his post, u/Plus-Climate2355 and his wife come from low-income backgrounds and worked all their lives so that their daughter could achieve what she wanted. Luckily enough, their daughter was a good student and managed to get a full ride to a good school. Sometime later, she broke the news to her parents that she was pregnant, that there was no father in the picture, and that she wanted to have the baby. She moved back home, which the Redditor was perfectly fine with considering she had some savings of her own and liked to help out with family chores and responsibilities.
However, the Redditor’s wife gradually became more and more hostile to the daughter, claiming that she tarnished her chances at a promising future and chasitising her for wanting to raise her kid in their lower-income neighborhood. At this point, u/Plus-Climate2355 couldn’t watch his wife attack their daughter any longer, especially during such a challenging period already. He kicked her out of the house, which he was legally able to do because it was not a marital property, and now his “in-laws are coming at [him] because everyone thinks she’s right.”
We’ve seen similar stories about father-daughter drama and family dynamics gone wrong. Like this woman whose mother-in-law suspected the worst of her and accused her of cheating when she was really just playing video games.
