I understand why people would be upset if they weren’t invited on a trip, but if other folks REALLY don’t want you there, would you want to go?
Yeah, that’s a tricky one…
And this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page will get you thinking!
Check it out below and let us know what you think.
AITA for inviting my brother’s wife and their kids but not his girlfriend and their daughter on family vacations?
“I’m usually the person in the family who plans family vacations. My brother is still married to his wife but she kicked him out after he got his girlfriend pregnant.
I love my sister-in-law and she’ll always be family to me no matter what happens between her and my brother so I’ve always invited her and her children to our family vacations, and I plan to continue doing so. My parents also invite her to all of our other family events and have made it clear to my brother his girlfriend isn’t welcome.
My brother has never said anything about it but his girlfriend is angry that her and her daughter have been continuously excluded for the last 3 years.
Her entire argument is that her daughter is getting old enough to understand that her siblings are favoured over her and it isn’t fair so I have to stop excluding them, especially since she isn’t going anywhere and her daughter is our family too.
Our next vacation is planned for February and she’s demanding I invite them but I’ve said no as I don’t want to make my sister-in-law uncomfortable since it seems like she’s finally stopped wanting a divorce and being angry with my brother.
And here’s what Reddit users had to say.
One person said this person is NTA.
And another said the whole family are wrong for being okay with this.
Another individual said there’s a lot of entitlement going on here…
