When family obligations conflict with personal plans, it can be tough to choose. One mom shared her story of having to decide between taking her daughter to see her ex's family, as per their agreement, or going on her sister's bachelorette trip. When her sister offered to make the trip kid-friendly, she decided to bring her daughter along. But her ex was less than understanding when he found out and accused her of breaking their agreement. Now, tensions are high and the mom is wondering if she made the wrong decision. What do you think?

When it comes to co-parenting, agreements are crucial to maintain a healthy relationship with your ex. However, what happens when your sister's bachelorette party falls on the same week as your daughter's visitation with your ex's family? This is the dilemma that one mom faced, and her decision has caused a rift in her co-parenting relationship. Despite getting permission from her ex to take their daughter on the trip, he was furious when he found out that she didn't take their daughter to see his family. The mom feels like she was in a no-win situation, and now her ex is using this incident to justify breaking their co-parenting agreement. What do you think about this situation? Was the mom in the wrong for choosing her sister's bachelorette party over her daughter's visitation with her ex's family, or was she justified in wanting to include her daughter in a family-friendly trip?
