The proposal, meant as a lifeline, is met with anger and accusations of guilt-tripping. The silence that follows leaves the woman questioning her intentions and actions. Was she out of line for suggesting such a thing? Or was it a genuine offer of help? Let's delve into the internet's take on this emotionally charged situation. 🌐💭

"YTA, but I think it's just how you went about it. I don't think you are necessarily the a**hole for telling her that you would be willing to raise the child and that she had the option open, but it sounds like you tried to butter her up with dinner and then guilt her into giving you her baby because otherwise she'd devastate her in-laws. She came to you because she's going through something extremely devastating and tragic, and while I completely acknowledge that you're going through a loss as well, I think you were out of line with how you used the information she shared wit you when she was vulnerable. She needed a shoulder to cry on, someone who understands her loss and can sympathize with how hard this decision is, and instead you tried to guilt her into doing what would be best for you." 💔
