Navigating the politics of a blended family can difficult on a good day. Even if they’ve been in your life for a long time, it can be difficult to manage the relationships or expectations of your parents and stepparents.
One woman on Reddit shared her story of how she learned the hard way that just because her mother is happy with her child’s name, it doesn’t mean her stepmother will be too.
Before We Jump Into The Story, Let’s Talk About The Conclusion
Reddit user Sudden_Orchid_9642 posted a story to the AmITheA**hole community when she was seeking guidance about an issue with her stepmother.
In something that doesn’t often happen on the internet, there was nearly a unanimous ruling for this story. Everyone agreed that the stepmother was in the wrong, with a few people saying neither the stepdaughter nor stepmother were in the wrong. But virtually no one felt the stepmother was in the right, here.
