A protective mother had Redditors in an uproar when she refused to get on a flight after she found out her fiance bought economy tickets for her kids. You won’t believe who all were in first class! Here is the full story.
They’re a Big Bunch
OP is a woman with 2 children from a previous marriage.
She is engaged to a man with 3 kids of his own, also from a previous marriage.
They’re Equal Partners
OP and her fiance live together and split living expenses in various ways.
She’s Going to School
For example, OP recently quit her job to focus on getting her degree, but she still chips in money from her savings.
She Does More than Her Share
Meanwhile, OP’s fiance works and brings home all of the family’s current income.
They both do household chores, but OP estimates her share amounts to about 80%.
They Were Part of the Family
Recently, OP’s fiance wanted her and her kids to fly across the country for a family get-together at his mother’s house.
He Was Footing the Bill
The trip fell during a break from school and the fiance was paying all the airfare, so OP was happy to go.
Trouble in the Terminal
So on the day of the outbound flight, OP and her family showed up at the airport.
That’s when it all fell apart.
They Were Second-Class Citizens
As they were checking in, OP discovered that she, her fiance, and his kids all had first-class tickets.
Her kids, meanwhile, were in economy class.
He Didn’t Even Care
OP was shocked and hurt, and she confronted her fiance about her kids’ tickets.
He shrugged it off, saying they could just suck it up for a few hours.
She Demanded an Explanation
At that point, OP was furious and wanted to know how her fiance thought that was in any way acceptable.
His Money, His Rules
But her fiance got angry right back at her and told OP that he was paying for the tickets.
His money, his rules was his take on the matter.
She Was Done with Him
That was the end of the conversation for OP, who turned her kids around and marched right out of the airport.
She Didn’t Want to See His Family
The fiance followed OP through the airport, demanding that she come back.
But she told him she no longer had the appetite for a visit with his family.
They Ganged Up on Her
Eventually, OP’s fiance headed back inside and got on the flight with his kids.
He called and texted OP to berate her before and after the flight, and he had his mom do the same after he landed.
She Made Up Her Mind
After some time to cool down back at home, OP wondered if maybe she overreacted.
But then with some more thought, she made a decision.
She Left Him a Memento
While her fiance was still gone, OP packed up her kids and went to stay with her mom.
She left her engagement ring behind.
She Did the Right Thing
Redditors fully support OP for standing up for her kids and think the fiance sounds like a total jerk.
Many of them say he gave her a preview of what being married to him would be like.
And That Lady Was a Piece of Work
Some of them also point out that OP probably would have trouble with her future mother-in-law if she stayed or went back.
They see the older woman getting involved so quickly in a family squabble as a huge red flag.
