A disappointed dad took to Reddit for opinions after he told his son he would never approve of his marriage. As it turns out, there’s something else dad will never give his son, either. Here is the full story.
They’re Just Starting Out
The original poster (OP) is a middle aged man who has a 25-year-old son, Jamie, with a 20-year-old girlfriend, Megan.
The young couple has been dating for about 7 months.
He Never Liked Her
Jamie introduced his girlfriend to his dad about 2 months ago, and OP knew right away he didn’t like Megan very much.
She’s a Real Prize
And that first impression only intensified over the next several weeks.
OP finds his son’s girlfriend to be rude, messy, wasteful, and stuck-up.
She’s a Delicate Flower
It’s a bad combination, made worse by the fact that OP has personally witnessed Megan cuss out members of his family for eating chocolate that wasn’t even hers.
He Can Make His Own Mistakes
OP hasn’t been shy about telling his son what he thinks of the girlfriend.
But OP has also been very clear that his son is an adult and can do what he wants with his life.
They Were Making It Official
Very recently, the son delivered the news OP had been dreading: he and his girlfriend were engaged and planning their wedding.
He Wanted Dad’s Approval
Not only that, but OP’s son asked his dad if he approved of the girl now that he had known her for a couple of months.
He Laughed in His Face
OP laughed in his son’s face and told him that he did not approve of the girl or of their engagement.
That made the young man angry, and he wanted to know why.
They Were Too Young
So OP told him that they were too young and barely knew each other.
They Couldn’t Do Anything
OP went on to point out that neither his son nor his girlfriend had a stable income.
They also didn’t know how to do any household chores.
He Would Regret It
And OP thinks it’s a big mistake to get married without a prenuptial agreement, which was his son’s plan.
He Just Didn’t Like Her
Finally, OP repeated that he just didn’t like his son’s girlfriend and didn’t think she fit in well with their family.
He Had Some News, Too
But OP saved the big bombshell for last.
He Was Kicking Them Out
The son and his fiance had been living at OP’s place even though the girl had her own apartment.
Now, though, OP wanted them to move out.
He Was Done With Them
OP reminded his son that he still had three other underage children at home, and the girlfriend had been mean and nasty to all of them.
OP was also done supporting the young couple.
He Wouldn’t Pay For Anything
While his son was still reeling, OP decided to make one other thing clear.
He wasn’t going to pay for the wedding, so the son shouldn’t even bother asking.
He Stormed Off
Not surprisingly, OP’s son got really angry and stormed off.
OP knows that the young man was shocked, and not just about his father’s tirade.
He Wasn’t Getting the House
OP is pretty sure his son, the oldest of his children, expected that he would inherit OP’s house someday.
By booting him, OP served notice that wasn’t going to happen.
They Think He’s a Jerk
In the aftermath of his conversation with his son, OP told his coworkers about the blowup.
Most of them think he went way too far and is being unreasonable.
He Made the Right Choice
For the most part, though, Redditors agree with OP and not his coworkers. They think that if the son wants to make his own choices, then he can take care of himself.
And most commenters do think OP’s son was going to ask him to pay for the wedding, so it was smart of him to cut off that conversation before it started.
