A woman recently asked for advice about her selfish fiancée. He had booked first-class seats for himself and his kids and put her two children in economy, but was she right to cause a scene? Here’s what she had to say:
She Had Been Married Before
“So, my fiancée has three kids from his former marriage, while I have two from my former marriage as well,” the woman explained. She hoped that her second relationship would be one big, happy family.
Her Fiancée Handled Their Finances
Her fiancée was the family breadwinner because she had quit her job to get a degree. It was hard enough to balance study and childcare, so she was glad that she could rely on his income. However, she still contributed with her savings, and she made sure to do the bulk of the chores.
They Had Thanksgiving Plans
Her fiancée wanted them to visit his parents for Thanksgiving. Although she wasn’t sure about taking a long flight with her kids, she agreed. After all, she thought she could rely on him to make the trip run smoothly. But she was wrong.
Her Fiancée Was Stingy
“He booked our tickets and everything, but, later, before the flight, I found out that he, his kids, and myself were put in 1st class while my two kids (14 and 10) were put in economy. I was stunned. He acted like it was no big deal.”
He Thought Her Kids Could Take It
He insisted that the flight would only take a few hours. Her kids would survive that long in economy seats. But she wasn’t so sure. Her youngest child had never flown alone before. She didn’t like the thought of leaving them isolated on the plane.
She Put Her Foot Down
She confronted her fiancée about his thoughtless behavior. How could he do this to them? It was completely unacceptable. However, her fiancée didn’t agree. He was ready to defend himself. In fact, he thought that she was the one being unreasonable.
He Thought She Was Being Ungrateful
He couldn’t believe that she was attacking him when he had paid for the tickets. She should be grateful that he’d bought tickets for her kids in the first place, never mind where they were. He was paying, which meant they were playing the game by his rules.
She Drew The Line
Enough was enough. She took her kids and left the airport. Her fiancée reacted badly and started to scream after her, but she wasn’t having it. She didn’t want to spend Thanksgiving with his parents. She didn’t want to spend it with him at all.
He Went Anyway
Her fiancée went without her. He kept calling her to tell her that she’d acted out. His mother even got in on the action, accusing the woman of lacking character. As far as they were concerned, she’d completely overreacted. Couldn’t she see that she was in the wrong?
Were They Right?
The woman couldn’t believe what was happening. She’d been ready to make a life with her fiancée, but it all seemed to be falling apart around her. She had been doing him a favor by agreeing to see his parents for the holidays, and he had let her down. Still, should she have just accepted his actions?
People Made Themselves Heard
One person said, “These are relationship-ending flags. These are turn around and leave him behind for good. It’s going to be difficult, but it would be worse for your children to continue this relationship because it feels safe or secure.”
Another person had this to say: “He will never treat your kids well. If you stay with him, know that your kids will always be second-class citizens in his home.”
