"YTA. You got the best of everything, but expect your son to pay for half the wedding. 🙄"

"YTA...If culture dictates that you and the other father should split the cost, and your son points out how much things cost, you should reflect on that. They are not being spoiled, you are being stingy. You don't ask someone to order pizzas and subs for their wedding dinner. Even after all of this, your son had the decency to thank you for your contribution. If nothing else, you raised a decent person." 😮✨
