The young man didn’t understand at first, but it soon became clear that she’d assumed he was going to write about her and his father.

The young man said, “I asked them why I’d write a paper about their marriage rather than my parents’ marriage.”

His stepmother couldn’t believe her ears. She told him that her and his father’s marriage was the one he should be writing about because it was forever. And, besides, his mother was dead.

The young man didn’t take too kindly to this, just like he hadn’t approved of his dad remarrying so quickly. He said, “My stepmom and my dad had a very long history. As soon as my mom died, he ran back to her, and they married.”

He told her the truth

Despite this, his stepmother still insisted that he write about her and his father because their family was better than his previous one.

He lied

In the end, the young man decided to lie and say he was writing about his grandparents instead. But it didn’t make a difference; his stepmother still wanted him to write about her.

He said he couldn’t

The young man told her, “I said it has already been pointed out that I can’t since Mom is dead and Dad is useless at that stuff.” He ignored his stepmother when she told him she was his mom now.

She wouldn’t stop

A few days later, the young man’s stepmother brought the subject up yet again. The young man started yelling. He said that their relationship didn’t inspire him at all, and in fact, it just showed that his dad hadn’t really cared about his mom because he’d married his stepmother just eight months after she died.

She didn’t understand

No matter what the young man said, his stepmom didn’t understand why he was mad, and he soon started feeling guilty for shouting.

Was he wrong?

Was the young man wrong to snap at his stepmom, or did he have every right to be mad about her marriage to his father?

The internet responded

One person said, “Honestly, I’d complain about this assignment. It would have been all sorts of legit triggering for me.”

Another person said, “I’d be tempted to write my essay about how their relationship inspired me to know what I would and wouldn’t accept in a relationship.”
