Hamster Heartbreak or Holiday Harmony: The Christmas Clash Continues

In a nutshell, our hero found himself in a holiday pickle. His girlfriend's hamster passed away just days before Christmas, leading to a wave of heartbreak and sorrow. Despite his attempts to cheer her up, she was inconsolable, even refusing to attend his family's Christmas dinner. An argument ensued, and while she eventually attended, the aftermath was far from merry. His mother sensed something was off, and his girlfriend accused him of being heartless. Now, days later, the fight remains unresolved, leaving us all wondering...who was in the right? Let's see what the internet thinks of this festive fiasco. 🎄💔

NTA honey, real talk, this girl has some serious mental health problems. You need to serious evaluate if YOU want to remain in this relationship. Without getting therapy she will get worse as she gets older, not better. Yes I know her hamster died a few days before Christmas, but it was a hamster, a week of crying, unable to care for herself, is not normal. 😳
