Woman applauded for kicking boyfriend to curb with two secret kids

Internet commentators rallied behind a woman whose relationship took a turn for the worse after learning about her boyfriend’s secret daughters.

In a viral Reddit post published on r/TrueOffMyChest, Redditor u/pink-orchids (aka the original poster or OP) said she had no idea about the kids before, but treated them like her own — until her Father got off the line one too many times.

Entitled ‘He’ll be surprised to find his shit outside on Monday. Just like when he suddenly remembered he was a father of two,” the post has garnered nearly 21,000 upvotes since Sept. 23.

“Having been together for almost two years,” OP began, “and never seen or heard of any children. Suddenly he brought home two precious little girls.”

OP went on to explain that the girls are her boyfriend’s children – of which she had never even heard a whisper – and said their mother was in a car accident and they will have to stay with their father indefinitely.

OP also said that she should have kicked her boyfriend out of her home immediately, but couldn’t leave his daughters without shelter and proper love and care.

“I couldn’t justify the suffering of the girls,” OP wrote. “I took care of her [and] comforted them when they worried about losing their mother while he was barely there.

“He expected me to carry the burden of parenthood while he watched [TV]He was at the gym or just out and about,” OP continued. “He never took the girls to visit their mother in the hospital. He had an excuse every time I asked him to come with us.”

“[Then] He had the audacity to be angry with me for feeling like I haven’t been paying attention to him lately,” OP added. “But no worry. The girls are going home…on Monday and then this fucker and I will be done!”

Blended families, in which at least one partner is accompanied by a child from a previous relationship, are common in the United States. In fact, according to Smart Stepfamilies and data released over the past decade, 40 percent of married couples with children are considered blended families. The Pew Research Center found that 16 percent of children in the US live in blended families.

However, as many previous Newsweek articles have acknowledged, blended families often face challenges arising from the merger of two separate nuclear power plants into one.

And those challenges become even greater when one of the nuclear units has been kept under wraps for more than two years.

When a romantic partner hides a child for an extended period of time, trust is undermined and the relationship is jeopardized.

Whether the other partner who has been kept in the dark decides to stay is purely coincidental and in a scenario like the one described by OP, chances are the children’s needs outweigh the anger and pain associated with their discovery .

Across the comments section of the viral Reddit post, Redditors praised OP for stepping up and taking care of her boyfriend’s two daughters when they needed it so badly, and for taking him the second the girls went into the care of their Mother returned, stepped to the curb.

“You will go down in history with these two little girls as a kind of guardian angel,” wrote Redditor u/spidaminida in the top comment of the post, which received more than 8,000 upvotes. “Thank God you got up.”

“Seriously,” repeated Redditor u/DJ_Ayres, receiving almost 2,000 upvotes. “Because ‘Dad’ clearly didn’t do that.”

Redditor u/yeet-o-clock, whose comment received more than 7,000 upvotes, offered a similar answer.

“[Win] for taking care of the children and not letting them suffer while their mother recovered,” they assured. “Happy for you that you will end this relationship.”

“Taking care of the kids while their mom was sick really was the kindest thing OP did,” added Redditor u/Little-Ease934, receiving more than 1,600 upvotes. “I’m also glad OP is ending the relationship because it clearly shows the man isn’t a good fit at all.”

“You made sure the children didn’t suffer even though they weren’t your children. This is most admirable,” interjected Redditor u/krystan. “Kick that loser out.”
