The dad insists it's not about favoritism, but his daughter is not buying it. Let's dive into this family drama and find out if dad's decision is justified or if he's being a tad unfair. 😕

Dad's Dilemma: To Pay or Not to Pay? 🤷‍♂️

This dad's decision to pay for multiple non-family members on a luxurious vacation to Nicaragua has left his 19-year-old daughter feeling left out and upset. He's covering the costs for his other son's fiancée, his younger son's best friend, and his girlfriend and her daughter, but refuses to pay for his daughter's boyfriend. The daughter argues that it's unfair, while the dad insists it's not about favoritism. His girlfriend even thinks he should just pay for the boyfriend to end the conflict. So, is dad being fair, or is he playing favorites? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿

YTA for favoritism: paying for friend but not daughter's long-term boyfriend

ESH. Demanding payment for a boyfriend's vacation seems entitled 😱

"Sorry bud, but YTA. She's got a good point. You're picking and choosing, and it seems you've chose to pay for everyone but her boyfriend. It's like the teachers always say 'did you bring enough for everyone?' 'His parents are rich' so tf what? Clearly you're rich too if you're paying for 11 people to go on vacation TO NICURAGUA!!!! It's not like you're going to Myrtle Beach, my guy." 😱

"YTA - You don't want the boyfriend to go on vacation with you. Clearly he is only paying for his daughter as he wants a built-in babysitter for the little kids. So judgmental about his parents can afford it. You can afford it too, you just don't like your daughter very much and you are happy for everyone else to know that." 😡
