A Reddit user turned to the online community to ask if he was in the wrong for laughing at the wife of the man who raised him after he was given everything in the inheritance.
A Father Figure
OP revealed that his biological father was not the man who raised him.
OP’s mother and the man who raised him were together from the time OP was six months old until he was seven. They had a younger sister together before eventually getting a divorce.
He Remained in OP’s Life
Despite this, the man remained a constant presence in OP’s life and reassured them that he was still his son and that he would always be there for him.
He Was the Man to Raise OP
OP loved and admired him greatly and considered him to be his only real father figure, apart from their grandfather, who was the man’s father.
Following the death of OP’s younger sister, his mother became emotionally unstable, and as a result, OP continued to be raised by his mother’s ex.
The New Wife Was Jealous of Their Relationship
At the age of 15, OP’s father met his now wife, Natalie, who had a 3-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son.
Unfortunately, Natalie didn’t like OP. She knew that he wasn’t her new husband’s biological child.
She also disliked how much attention OP received from his grandparents.
She Undermined Their Relationship
Natalie would frequently bring up the fact that OP was not her partner’s real child, and undermined their relationship on multiple occasions.
She Would Throw Jabs at Their Relationship
Natalie often referred to OP’s father as a childless parent due to the tragic loss of the younger sister.
She would use this as an opportunity to highlight OP’s non-biological status and insinuate that his father was not a “real” parent.
It Led to Her Being Kicked Out of the House
Natalie also had a habit of interjecting during moments when OP’s grandparents would compare OP to his father.
On one occasion, her behavior even led to her being kicked out of the house!
Their Relationship Began to Fade
Natalie’s behavior also extended to instances when OP’s father would spend time alone with him.
On OP’s 17th birthday, when his father was taking him out for a celebration, Natalie complained about him leaving her children behind and made it clear that she did not want OP to be treated as the only child in the house.
A Quest to Find His Biological Father
Natalie asserted that her children would feel left out and unloved.
In addition, Natalie attempted to find out information about OP’s biological father, which was unsettling for OP and his family.
They Went Their Separate Ways
As a result of Natalie’s behavior and his father’s complicity, OP estranged himself from both of them.
Despite Natalie’s disrespectful treatment towards OP and their family, his father had chosen to remain married to her.
A Total Breakdown of Their Relationship
Even when Natalie’s made negative comments about OP receiving gifts from his grandparents and suggested that the money should be spent on younger children, his father had sided with her.
This caused a rift between OP and his father, leading to the breakdown of their relationship.
He Found Out He Was Getting Everything
OP and his father remained estranged until his father’s death last year. Following his passing, OP’s grandparents initiated the legal process to evict Natalie and her children from the house.
As owners of the house and other possessions that the father had used, they had never charged him rent and felt that everything should be passed on to OP.
She Was Upset They Wouldn’t Get Anything
Natalie was shocked! She had assumed that she would be able to inherit the house and other items that her husband’s parents had given to him.
When she asked about her children, the grandparents revealed that they had not seen them in years and would not be giving them anything.
OP Laughed in Her Face
When Natalie confronted OP about the legal process initiated by their grandparents, OP laughed at her anger toward him.
She Expressed Her Frustration
Natalie showed up at OP’s workplace and expressed her frustration that he was getting everything and not sharing it with her children, who had lost their only father.
OP continued to laugh and walked away from Natalie.
They Thought It Could Have Been Handled Better
A friend of the father overheard the confrontation and advised OP that it would have been better to walk away without laughing.
The friend also pointed out that Natalie’s children were also the father’s children and that OP should consider how much the situation must have hurt them.
