Her Niece Didn’t Want Her Mom to Remarry After Her Father’s Death, but Mom Didn’t Care, and Called Her Selfish for Complaining

A woman recently asked if she was wrong for confronting her sister about the way she handled her emotional daughter after the death of the daughter’s father. The woman wanted to remarry but didn’t even consider her daughter’s feelings! Here’s what the woman had to say:

Sera’s Father Passed Away

Her sister Viv had a daughter named Sera. When Sera was seven years old, her father passed away due to an accident. Sera and her dad were really close, so losing him was very hard for her and her mom, Viv.

About a year later, after Sera’s dad died, Viv met a man named Michael. They started dating, and after a year of being together, they introduced Sera to Michael’s daughter, Mia.

At that time, Sera was nine years old. She didn’t like the idea of her mom dating Michael and becoming Mia’s stepmom. She wanted her mom all to herself, especially since she was still feeling sad about losing her dad. She didn’t want to share her mom’s love with someone else.

Instead of understanding Sera’s feelings, Viv got mad at her. She called Sera selfish and said that Sera didn’t understand how things worked in the world.

Viv didn’t talk to Sera about how she felt. She only focused on the fact that Mia might need a mom figure and told Sera that she was being selfish for denying another kid a mom.

Now she remembered her sister Viv felt the same way when their own dad got remarried. This happened after their mom left their lives, not because of death. So she found it interesting that Viv forgot how she felt back then.

Sera (now 16) and Mia (now 15) are both in high school. They don’t see each other as real sisters, nor have a close relationship. The stepdad, Michael, seemed to care more about someone taking care of Mia rather than being deeply involved with the family.

Sera talked to her aunt and her husband, as well as her mother-in-law, about how she felt. She shared that she felt her mom didn’t like her and wanted to leave. “She told me she can see now that Mia is more important to her and that unless she loves Mia and adopts her as a real sister, she’ll never have her mom back,” she said.

So, the sister decided to talk to Viv about this issue. “Viv didn’t like how much time Sera was spending with us, confronted me, and I told her she would lose her daughter if she didn’t get over this grudge and accept that her child just wanted to experience less change after such a big loss,” she said. Her sister called her bad and accused her of ruining the family.

Was the sister wrong?

The woman reached out to an internet forum and asked if she was wrong for meddling in her sister’s and niece’s lives.

People Responded

One user wrote, “Please don’t leave this girl alone, not after her mother abandoned her when she was a child who needed support. Is she in therapy? Is she safe with your sister and her new family? Please keep checking on her.”

Another said, “Viv is the selfish one. Based on your account, she doesn’t have a speck of emotional intelligence and empathy. Truly embarrassing for a grown woman to be so emotionally stunted.”
