A grieving father rattled Redditors when he called his ex-wife spiteful and selfish because she wanted to sell their late son’s apartment. You won’t even believe who she wanted to leave homeless in the process! Here is the full story.
They Split Up a Long Time Ago
OP is a 54-year-old man whose ex-wife is a 52-year-old woman. They have been divorced for more than 15 years.
He Brought Them Together
But times weren’t always bad between OP and his ex, and they had a son together who they both loved very much.
He Was a Hero
Tragically, though, OP’s son died recently at the young age of 22. He was a firefighter and died heroically in the line of duty.
They Kicked Her Out
OP’s son left behind a 21-year-old girlfriend who is pregnant with their first child.
Her parents are very conservative and religious, and they booted her from their house when she told them about the baby.
He Helped Them Get Started
That’s when OP stepped in to help them buy an apartment of their own.
He even talked his ex-wife into helping with the deposit and the first few payments.
She Wasn’t Happy
OP’s ex never really liked her son’s girlfriend, though, and she was very reluctant to help them buy a place.
She Wanted to Sell
Not long after their son died, OP’s ex-wife came to him and wanted to sell the apartment. She thought they should cash out and split the money.
He Thought They Should Stay
OP wanted no part of selling the place, though, because that meant his son’s girlfriend and unborn child wouldn’t have anywhere to live.
She Was Going to Sue
A little later, OP’s ex contacted him again and told him she wanted to sue their son’s girlfriend to make sure she didn’t get any of the young man’s money or belongings.
She Pushed Him Harder
And while they were talking about that, OP’s ex-wife again asked him to sell the apartment.
He Would Buy Her Out
OP again said no way, but he did offer to buy out his ex-wife’s half of the place. That way she could have her money and their son’s girlfriend and baby would still have a place to live.
She Wanted Her Out
That’s when OP’s ex-wife laid it on the line for him.
She said she didn’t think her son’s girlfriend deserved to have the apartment, and she wanted the girl out.
She Was Just Plain Mean
That made OP furious, and he told his ex that she was spiteful and selfish.
He said all she cared about was money, and he couldn’t believe she would mistreat her grandson before he was even born.
He Was Being Insensitive
OP’s ex couldn’t handle that truth and broke down in tears. She said he was being insensitive to her loss.
He Saw the Light
OP has no idea how his ex’s loss is connected to selling the apartment.
But thanks to a comment from a Redditor, OP found a perfect solution.
It Was His Last Gift
Part of the reason OP wanted to hang onto the apartment was that his son had started decorating the nursery. OP couldn’t bear to lose that little piece of his child.
They Brought It All Home
So OP and his son’s girlfriend decided to hire a graphic designer to recreate his son’s artwork in a room at OP’s place. Then the GF moved in and will stay there until after OP’s grandson is born.
He Put the Money to Good Use
That also allowed OP and his ex to sell the apartment. OP put his half of the money from the sale into a savings account for his grandson.
Mostly, Redditors are heartbroken for OP and hope that he can find some peace in helping raise his grandson.
And they almost unanimously think OP’s ex-wife is a petty, small person who cares more about revenge and money than her son’s only child
