My Teen Daughter Chose Her Cheating Dad over Me & Cut All Contact, Asks Me for Money Years Later

When a woman chose to divorce her husband over his infidelity, she lost custody of her daughter. As time passed, the daughter refused to see the woman, believing she was a bad person. It wasn’t until the girl had no more money to pay for college that she reconnected with her mom.

In January 2022, an anonymous female poster shared her story in the “AITA” subreddit. The woman, aged 45, who had married a wealthy man, believed she was lucky to have someone lend a helping hand to her family.

Her husband not only lavished her parents with opulent gifts but also settled her sister’s credit card debts. Additionally, he facilitated her brother’s connection to a reputable company, securing him a lucrative job offer.

Her husband was well-loved by his in-laws and was often on his side during challenging times in their marriage, including the first time he cheated. At the time, the woman had just given birth to their child, Kelly. Despite her vulnerability, she desired to part ways with her husband.

However, her family persuaded her to forgive the man. They cited Kelly as a reason for her to remain, emphasizing the importance of the child growing up in a stable household with both parents. Yielding to her family’s advice, the woman decided to stay. Additionally, she convinced herself that she couldn’t be the best wife at that time because she was pregnant.

When Kelly reached the age of 12, the woman’s husband cheated on her for the second time. Resolute in her decision, she was determined to initiate divorce proceedings. However, her in-laws opposed the idea, seeking to avoid any scandal involving their family. The woman’s parents shared the same sentiments, not wanting to lose access to her husband’s kindness and generosity.

Despite the opposition, the woman went ahead and filed for divorce. During the legal process, she lost her child’s custody, as her husband had the financial means to secure the best lawyers and had his in-laws’ support. Nevertheless, the woman received alimony and a favorable settlement.
