The saying “Don’t marry someone you can live with, but someone you can’t live without” expresses the importance of choosing the right partner in life. However, even the strongest relationships are not immune to issues, and some problems are so big that they are impossible to resolve.

For example, when you suddenly realize that the person you live with is hurting your own child. The reason for this family drama was the behavior of the stepdaughter and stepmother toward the author’s 13-year-old son, which was detailed in a Reddit post.

In the thread, he wants to know if he is the a**hole for doing what he did next after he found out.

A stepmom's harsh words ruined a Dad's Mother's Day celebration 🤯

This father was planning a surprise Mother's Day celebration for his wife when he overheard an exchange between his wife, stepdaughter, and introverted son. His wife had been trying to convince his son to let him stay home by saying the son's ‘attitude’ would make her family uncomfortable. She even said that she isn't technically his mom and doesn't understand why he wanted to celebrate Mother's Day with her.

The father was so hurt and angry that he decided to cancel the celebration. After a heated argument, his wife left the house with their stepdaughter. The family is now in a state of tension and hurt. In this post, the father is asking the AITA community if he was in the wrong for canceling the celebration.

Let's discuss reactions and comments next.
