Mom Bans Kids From Dad’s Wedding To His New Wife Unless Invited
An ex getting into a new relationship can sometimes be a tricky situation to deal with, especially if you share kids together.
A woman on Reddit is so pissed her ex-husband and fiancee didn’t invite her to their upcoming wedding that she’s considering telling their kids they can’t attend either.
The woman clarified that her two children, 10 and 13, are supposed to be “junior bridesmaids” for the father’s bride, whom she despises. The kids are “excited” about being part of the wedding.
However, since the woman did not receive an invitation, she is now threatening not to allow them to attend the ceremony.
“I have two kids with my ex. My ex and his girlfriend of 6 years, Ava, are getting married in three weeks and my kids are supposed to be young bridesmaids for Ava,” she wrote via Reddit. “My kids are really excited to be at the wedding and loved picking out dresses and hairstyles.”
The woman added that she “can’t stand” Ava, because she often tries “to mother my children when they stay with them and her family constantly calls them their grandchildren.”
“My kids even call them Nana and Pop,” she continued. “Ava also doesn’t support me on any issues I have with my ex regarding the kids, and won’t answer my calls or texts unless the kids are at their dad’s house. Apart from this, she ignores me because ‘she shouldn’t end up in the middle of parenting issues.'”
The mother-of-two went on to say that Ava “also refuses to be alone with me when we do drop-off and pick-up. When I asked to know why she said it was because I put her uncomfortable because I’m always chasing my ex and talking about all the bullshit he did in our relationship.”
After finding out she wasn’t invited to her ex’s wedding, she confronted her ex-husband, who in turn told her he didn’t want her there, but insisted on leaving. ‘she gets pictures of the children of the day.
“I’m pretty mad about this considering I should at least be invited to the ceremony,” the woman wrote, adding that she’s “considering telling my ex and Ava that I don’t want my kids be at their wedding unless I’m there.”
In the comments, users criticized the woman for her request to be invited to the wedding, as well as for not allowing her children to attend their father’s nuptials.
“These are your ex’s kids too. And you’re not invited to the wedding because you clearly hate the bride,” one person wrote.
“Why the hell would you expect to be invited to your ex’s wedding?” Pick yourself up. They don’t want you there, quite reasonably, for obvious reasons. Do you ever think of anyone other than your own ego? another user commented.
“Arming your kids against an ex-spouse in any way makes you an asshole. Period,” another person weighed.
“Don’t punish your children because you are jealous that they are building a relationship with their future mother-in-law and her family,” someone else wrote.
