A little background
OP wants her and her husband to spend Christmas together, but she doesn’t want him to have to choose between her and his kids
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“YTA… You either come to terms with the fact that you now have a family, and act accordingly, or you leave.”
“It’s not just you. He has kids. They’re never going away. It was a package deal.“
“YTA… You should have given more thought to this relationship before getting on board.”
“YTA. Did you just expect the children to never appear at all during your marriage?“
“YTA…His kids will always come first in regards to being able to spend time with them, especially holidays.”
“YTA and I hope husband kept his divorce attorney on retainer.”
“He will choose his kids over you every time. That’s what fathers do. Put their children first.“
“It may not be a ‘big deal’ to you that he doesn't see his kids for one year, but it's a BIG DEAL to his kids who now won't see their dad.“
Redditors are not with OP on this one. Her husband was simply being a good parent. The kids are very young (aged 4-9), and at that age, Christmas really matters.
Sure, she decided not to have kids, but she went into this marriage with her eyes wide open. The sooner OP comes to terms with the fact that this is a package deal, the less conflict they’d have in the future.
