'We paid for everything': Guy invites ex on vacation, ex demands to be reimbursed for petty purchases

Would you vacation with your ex ? Some folks would, some wouldn't. It depends on your relationship with them: can you still trust them, do you still get along, will everyone actually have a good time? These are all good questions to consider. This dude, u/rduncang, writes that their relationship with their ex-wife has changed throughout the years. Things went well in their post-marriage life at first. However, after a few years, the ex's daughter began stealing from the OP (original poster). Th…

20 times people discovered their partners were not bright: 'She thought the Statue of Liberty was made of plastic'

There comes a time in everyone's dating experiences when you realize that the person with whom you have been spending time is a complete and total doofus. When this happens, you have three options. First, you can give them the benefit of the doubt. You let whatever silly comment they made slide, you try to explain why they are mistaken, and you move on. Sometimes, people simply do not know things because they have yet to be exposed to them. You taught your partner something. Isn't that a produc…

'We know you're single. Can you come in [for] an extra shift tonight?': 15+ Valentine's Day dinner disasters, as told by servers

Everyone knows that there are just as many disastrous Valentine's Day dinners as great ones. Something about the commercialism of the fake holiday creates a bizarre mix of emotions, unrealistic expectations, and a weird amount of stakes despite, you know, the meaning of the holiday to be virtually empty. However, instead of hearing about all the Valentine's Day fails from the perspective of the couples themselves, let's looks at these dinners gone wrong from a more objective viewpoint. These se…

'We were on a break!': 15 newly single people share their ex's version of the breakup

Everyone wonders what their ex is saying about them to their group of friends, so it's not uncommon to imagine what those conversations might sound like. Sometimes, your ex was so “in the wrong” that it will take a tremendous amount of creativity to fabricate another reason why things fell apart. Other times, the reasons behind the split remained nuanced, and both parties may still have wildly different perspectives years after all the drama went down. These newly single folks shared what they…

This dude was the recipient of pettiness during his divorce when his ex-wife enforced a rule that essentially meant that any future long-term partner o…

Dad Insults Mom's Cooking, Mom Serves Dad Rotten Beans and Divorce Papers: 'Now you know what rotten [food] tastes like'

Never criticize the person who makes you dinner; otherwise, you might be in for a rotten surprise. This Redditor recounted the tale of how their father relentlessly critiqued his wife's beans whenever she made them. They seemed to be perfectly fine for everyone else in the family, but for him, they were always “rotten.” So OP's mother decided it was time to give him a taste of his own medicine and to show him what rotten beans actually tasted like. The best part of the story is the subsequent r…

'[She] would roll over in her grave': Wicked stepmother who forces husband to cut ties with his children gets a taste of karma beyond the grave

It's a horrible thing when you find out someone who got divorced also emotionally divorces their children. Once you have committed to being a parent, you are committed for life, there is no backing out. And yet, there are still parents who think they can just leave their kids in the dust and “start over.” That's not how life works, buddy. However, as humans we strive for peace and forgiveness is a start. For example , this child who was cast aside due to her wicked stepmother learned to forgive…

Your boss asks you to do something extra, and your insides immediately curl up as you internally scream no, no, no! Why me?

It was collecting all the boss's ex-wife's belongings from his home and sorting them into boxes. No, you did not just enter a strange portal in which you set foot in an even stranger universe where you get involved with your boss's personal life… Yes, this is re…

Update: '$170,000 of the money was missing:' Guy discovers his Karen wife had been using their daughter's college fund to satisfy her shopping habits

Can you imagine needing to scratch your shopping itch so badly that you had to dip into your child's college fund? It doesn't get much more desperate than that, not to mention risky. I mean, if you're willing to go there, you're willing to sacrifice your future relationship with your kid, all for a pair of shoes you'll probably wear twice or three times a year. Thankfully, this shocking revelation and the difficult consequences for the family at the center of it all did not stop the daughter fr…

'I can't be the only one who thinks it's crazy for my husband to buy his ex a house': Woman won't let her husband buy a house for his ex-wife; family makes her out to be the bad guy

What do you think about this situation? So, a married couple is living together and expecting a baby together. Her husband was previously married with kids until he divorced his ex-wife after she cheated on him. The husband let his ex and kids stay in their fully paid-off home, and he moved out. Fast forward a bit, and the ex loses the house and is left with no money (we're still a little confused about how that happened). She's now in an apartment. The OP's husband wants to buy her another hou…

'He left me for a coworker': 20+ stories of engagements that got called off just before the wedding

No one ever said there's no more drama after you get engaged. These folks know that fact all too well. They shared their stories of how their engagements fell apart not long before their wedding ceremonies via this r/AskReddit thread, and let's just that these stories are cringe and bleak. Most people probably assume that the root cause of these breakups is adultery, and you wouldn't be entirely wrong there. Cheating comes up a lot on this list, but it's the ridiculous ways in which adultery wa…

'People don't [know] what they want': 25+ candid reasons behind today's breakups

People are getting candid online about why their relationships are falling apart. No, the answer is not because Mercury is in retrograde, although if you haven't noticed, there have been an unusually high number of breakups and divorces this year among public figures and celebrities. If we look closer than astrology, which is not exactly my preferred method of analysis, there seems to be a disconnect among partnerships about how to even be in a partnership anymore. Part of that is because of th…

'He thought he could convince me I was pregnant': 25+ ridiculous attempts exes made to get back together

Trying to get back together after you've burned a bridge is a lost cause. It's kind of a Sisyphean task and a pointless one at that. If your relationship crashed and burned, you must be in an even worse place if you're trying to get back together. There's no way you could be well-adjusted. If you were, you would have recognized that the damage is done and that it's just better for everyone involved if you walk away and stay away. Some of us, however, are not this smart.

Sure, it's important to have standards, but some of you need to chill out. There's a fine line when it comes to dating between having high standards for the purposes of self-empowerment and having high standards because what you're looking for is so specific that your mystery partner simply may not be human. Knowing your worth and knowing not to compromise on certain factors is an essential part of your growth as a single adult. It's often part of what dating in your twenties is all about. Howe…
