Mother supports because she exposed her children’s father to the mother-in-law

Internet commentators supported a mother who explained how she exposed her children’s father to her former mother-in-law.

In a viral Reddit post published on r/AmITeA**hole, Redditor u/Winter_Apple_6053 (aka Original Poster or OP) said she and her 30-year-old husband recently went through an ugly divorce, and detailed the aftermath his divorce sudden decision to leave the lives of their children.

Captioned: “[Am I the a**hole] for telling my ex to his mom about our kids?” The viral post has garnered nearly 13,000 votes and 1,400 comments in the past six hours.

The original poster wrote that she and her now-ex-husband have a 12-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son, and said the former couple’s divorce proceedings were over when he clarified that he no longer wanted to be a father .

“Everything was pretty much complete until he said he no longer wanted a part of our children’s lives,” the OP wrote.

“I asked what to say to the kids and he just said, ‘Whatever you think is best, I don’t care. I don’t want to be a parent anymore,'” she added.

After their divorce was finalized, the original poster said she was confronted by her ex-mother-in-law about her grandchildren and accused her of intentionally keeping them away from their father.

“I got a call from my ex [mother-in-law] asked if we could meet up,” she wrote. “When I walked by she broke down crying and begging for my ex to see his kids again.”

“She continued as my ex said he really misses her and I’m just a little bitch for having full custody,” she continued. “I told her my version of events and she called it [bullsh*t] to say that her son would not lie like that, especially about his children.”

In response, the original poster said she called her ex-husband before his mother did. After asking about his alleged desire to see his children, the original poster said he reiterated that he was done being their parent.

“He immediately said, ‘No. I’ve already said I don’t do this anymore,'” she wrote. “I said, ‘Well, how do you think that’s going to play out [your mother]?”

“He just said, ‘She loves me more than the kids, so I doubt that’s going to be a problem for her,'” she added.

After she hung up, the original poster said her ex-mother-in-law was “unadulterated” and told her they would keep in touch. On the same day, the original poster said she received another call from her ex-husband.

“My ex called me and said it’s my fault he was kicked out of his mother’s house and may be taken out of her will,” she wrote. “Also that none of his family members will speak to him about what [his mother] heard.”

Despite the common misconception that “50 percent of marriages end in divorce,” current rates in the United States are much lower.

In 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported a divorce rate of 2.3 per 1,000 residents. And while the CDC’s divorce data doesn’t include 5 out of 50 states (California, Hawaii, Indiana, Minnesota, and New Mexico), their reported rate is nowhere near the 50 percent figure.

Despite declining rates, marriages that end in divorce continue to adversely affect ex-partners and their children.

For children, VeryWell Family reports that divorce can be a pivotal and life-changing experience, especially when one parent breaks the bond entirely.

Throughout the comments section of the viral Reddit post, Redditors defended the new single mom, insisting that while her ex-husband had the right to give up his rights as a parent, he had no right to blame the original poster for never doing so to see his children.

“He didn’t have the right to put you in a bad light and make you appear guilty and evil/manipulative,” wrote Redditor u/BootsNblueEyes in the top comment of the post, which garnered nearly 14,000 votes.

“His mother had the right not to have any contact with her son — a grown man who didn’t want any contact with his real young children,” they added. “Sounds like he’s trying his own medicine.”

Redditor u/GothPenguin, whose comment received nearly 4,000 upvotes, offered a similar answer.

“Your [ex-mother-in-law] deserves to know the lies your son has been telling and how little he wants to have to do with being a parent,” they wrote. “It’s his own fault that he’s angry that he got caught, not yours.”

“He made a decision that he knew his family would judge negatively, so he lied and made you the scapegoat,” Redditor commented on u/TurtleTheMoon. “You didn’t go to his family to tell them what he did, you were caught unawares by the whole thing.”

“I can’t understand how anyone could ever side with him,” they added. “He abandoned his children, blamed you, and is now furious that his wrongdoing and subsequent lies have been exposed.”
