Uh oh…it’s another story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page about family members getting bent out of shape about someone announcing a pregnancy…
But these family tales are always different from each other, so let’s see what the heck is going on in this one.
Take a look!
AITA for calling my sister selfish for announcing her pregnancy at our parents’ house?
“My husband and I have been having a long struggle with infertility. We have been getting treated and trying for a baby since 2017. But nothing worked! My husband is understandably devastated as he’d always wanted kids but never got the chance to be a father.
He’s super sensitive aroubd the infertility topic. This my family knows. Days ago, we got together with family for dinner. All of a sudden, my sister and her husband announced that they were expecting. We were stunned, me and my husband I mean.
As for the others they were thrilled. As everyone got up to congratulate them. My husband got up, pushed his chair to the side and walked out. They all stared at me but I got up and told my sister she messed up by announcing her pregnancy like this and with zero consideration for my husband knowing how he feels about this topic.
She got defensive saying his “issues” with the topic wasn’t her problem and that she and her husband were fed up walking on eggshells around him. I called her selfish and cruel but she complained that he ruined their joy and that I made it worse by making a scene.
I told her she shoukdn’t have chose my parents house but she said I have no place to dictate what she does in our parents house. My mom asked me to go home and I went.
It’s been horrible. My parents think I’ve reacted poorly and should apologize to my sister on both mine and my husband’s behalf after the scene we made at their home.”
Now let’s see how folks reacted on Reddit.
One person said that even though she’s in an unfortunate situation, she’s an a**hole.
And this Reddit user who can relate to this story said that the woman who wrote the post and her husband are both a**holes.
Another individual said they believe that everyone in this situation sucks.
