Man Divorces Wife for MᎥstress, His Parents Remove Him from Their Will &And Give Everything to His Wife

One worrying mother took to Reddit to share the awful story of her son, who c-h-e-a-t-e-d on his now ex-wife that, at the time, was only a few months postpartum. She and her husband supported their daughter-in-law, removed son from their will, gave daughter-in-law & baby everything.

Here’s the full story:

“My son (24) mistreated and eventaully c-h-e-a-t-e-d on his now ex wife while she was 3 months post-partum.”

“He is leaving town to go be with the other woman and seemingly has no regrets. both me and his dad are ashamed seeing how our daughter in law is struggling to cope with everything happening in her life, while trying to care for a new baby.”

“We decided to cut him off of the will and put everything we planned to give him towards our daughter in law and our grandbaby. My son heard about this arrangement from his sister and is going on a campaign to guilt and shame me and my husband for the decision we’ve made.”

“Sadly, many family members are taking his side and calling my daughter in law now ‘an outsider’ or ‘not family’ saying we’re making a mistake that will cost us our son. She is aware of the negativity around her, but she has nowhere else to go.”

“My husband and I took her and the baby in for now.”

“We are getting heat and criticism and it’s bothersome and exhausting, but we’re standing our ground because we feel like it’s only fair to make sure our grandbaby and his mother get a stable life after what my son did to them.”

After receiving a lot of supportive responses, they updated their post to give more context:

“UPDATE: Often times having disagreements with family can be very confusing and conflicting but I look at how confident and determind my husband is to support and continue to support and provide for our daughter in law makes me more confident in my stance as well.”

“As a mother, It’s really hard for me to witness all of this and despite the fact that he’s my son and yes he had been going through some rough times, I couldn’t stand away and watch.”

“Also as a mother if I had something similar done to me, I’d absolutely want to see my inlaws and family standing behind me as a support. I can only imagine how my daughter in law is feeling right now.”

“Especially with everyone else showing hate towards her and accusing her of turning us against our son, We can not control how others act or how life is but I’m glad that I did right by my daughter in law and my grandbaby. That is all.”

The story received over 103K upvotes and 10K worth of comments discussing this uneasy situation – while also supporting the amount of empathy the parents showed towards their daughter-in-law.

Here are some response from Reddit users

“Seems like he has everything worked out. Why does he need anything from you guys?”

“I have the utmost respect for you op. Just because your son divorced his wife doesn’t mean she is not family. People get to choose their family and you were gracious enough to take her in. Your son is absolutely mad because of his own actions. He can’t take any responsibility for them. It doesn’t matter what other people say or what he’s telling them. It only matters what you want to do for your daughter-in-law and your grandson. Other people’s opinions don’t matter. Right now it probably hurts so much because yes it was your son but when your kids do something wrong sometimes you have to call them out. She’s probably very grateful for everything that you’ve done for her.”

“I am so happy you’re doing this for her and your grandbaby. The family members turning their backs don’t deserve to be in your life either.”

“This is your choice and those who have a problem with it can stay out! It’s your decision and you don’t have to justify it to anyone even your son.”

“I’m proud of you for putting an innocent baby and its mother first in this instead of doing the “my son can do no wrong” bs. Your money belongs to you and you can do as you please with it, it doesn’t belong to your son. Your son decided to be a bad father and abandon your grandbaby. You decided to help and I think that’s wonderful. Your son is an adult and can make his own way in the world.”
