Woman Helps Her Daughter's Boyfriend against His Parents Wishes — Here's Why
A woman shared her story on Reddit, asking users to determine if she was wrong for helping her daughter's boyfriend without his parents' approval. Many of the comments showed that she did the right thing.
A woman took to Reddit asking users to be the judge of a situation involving her daughter's boyfriend, whom she helped against his parents' wishes. According to the woman, her daughter's boyfriend is 22, has a full-time job, and the duo has been dating for about three years.
Despite having a full-time job, the boy hardly has enough money because his parents require him to give them his entire salary every payday. The money is then deposited into their bank account.
They give him an allowance of $100 per week out of the deposited money, which is not enough for his upkeep. So the boy decided to move out and get an apartment with his girlfriend.
His parents don't want him to move out because they claim to need his help financially. However, the woman explained that their reason does not make sense because both parents make good money.
The woman thinks it is wrong for the boy's parents to depend on his income or guilt-trip him into giving them his hard-earned money. Seeing the way things are, the woman gave the boy some money to help him and her daughter move into their new apartment.
The boy's mother also called the woman, screaming and yelling while threatening her with bodily harm.
She added that the boy opened a personal bank account and had his job pay his salary into it. With all of this in place, the 22-year-old and the woman's daughter plan to move into their new apartment soon.
After realizing what had happened, the boy's mother took to social media, posting a message in which she threatened the woman for interfering in their family matters.
As if that was not enough, the boy's mother also called the woman, screaming and yelling while threatening her with bodily harm. Though the woman does not think she did anything wrong, she asked Reddit if she should have truly stayed out of the boy's situation with his parents.
In response, users took to the comments section sharing their thoughts about the woman's story, with one writing, "Your daughter is dating the young man, it is your business."
Another user added, "They're only pissed that because of you they're going to struggle to continue to financially abuse him," with many others sharing similar thoughts. What do you think?
On the flip side, here's an interesting story about a woman who usually pays for her boyfriend's therapy sessions but suddenly decided not to pay any longer because of a serious reason.
