This Mom Relocated to Another State with Her New Boyfriend without Informing Her Children, and Now They Refuse to Speak to Her

A young woman recently asked the Reddit community if she was wrong for not forgiving her mom for moving to a different state for a man without telling her. The mom has apologized, but the girl isn’t sure she’s ready to accept.

“My parents have been divorced for about a year now, and since then, my mom has met this very nice guy,” shared the woman. “He has been nothing but sweet, so I have no issues with him.”

The girl and her siblings usually spent the entire weekend with the mom and her new guy. But a few months ago, that started to change. “My mom would only let us stay till Saturday. On Sundays, she was always in a rush to get us to leave, which was kinda hurtful, but we never asked why.”

She also noticed that her mother was acting out of character. For example, she stopped sending her daily texts and was slow to message back.

This girl decided to take the initiative. A long weekend was coming up, so she texted her mom to ask if she could visit and stay till Monday. Mom agreed, and the girl was overjoyed. She would finally get to spend some quality time with her mother.

Something Wasn’t Right

Her father drove her down but when they arrived, something didn’t look right. “Their cars weren’t there, and the lights were off,” the woman said. “At first, I assumed that maybe she was home alone. I rang the doorbell, but no one answered.”

Now she started freaking out, worrying that something terrible had happened to her mother. She called again. No answer. She asked her brother to call. Again, no response. Eventually, her father managed to get hold of the missing mother and find out what was going on.

And what he discovered shocked everyone. “He told us that she was in a completely different state. She moved away with her boyfriend without telling us,” the girl said. “My brother and I were just kinda standing there in disbelief.”

The girl finally spoke to her mother on the phone, telling her how hurt and angry she was. But mom just didn’t seem to get it.

“I started crying and screaming at her for an explanation,” said the woman. “What irritates me the most is that she sounded so offended by the fact that I was so upset by this.” That’s when she accused her mother of abandoning her and her siblings.

Mom went quiet, then told the daughter she was glad she’d left her kids behind. It cut deep, and the girl was devastated. And that was the last time this pair spoke.

Since then, Mom has reached out with a few messages, but the girl refuses to speak to her. She’s even blocked her mom on social media. “I decided to go no contact with her,” shared the hurt girl. “My dad thinks I’m being too harsh with her, but I’m simply too upset by this.”

Was She Wrong?

The woman reached out the internet to ask if it was the right thing to do or if she had been too harsh on her mom.

“You aren’t being too harsh,” wrote one person. “She literally abandoned you. It may be a good idea to see if the custody agreement can be amended, so you can’t be forced to spend time with her.”

“She really just… moved? That’s so hurtful,” posted another. “Your mom may have every right to do whatever she wants, but she’s a mom to two kids; her choice will severely impact you and your brother. I’m so sorry you’re going through this.”
