A woman didn’t go to her birthday party when her
family made it a point to exclude her girlfriend.
She sought advice on Reddit’s
“Am I The A******” forum.
“A week ago I turned 23. I’ve been with Ry
(nickname) for five years ... Ry is 27”.
“for whatever reason, my mother wanted
to celebrate this birthday and I agreed”.
Then a week before her birthday she’s
told that Ry isn’t invited to the party.
“my grandmother and mother
don’t like her (age difference and
they think she ‘turned’ me)” .
Ry accepted that she wasn’t invited, but the
23-year-old opted to skip the party entirely.
“Now my family are texting me
saying that I’ve embarrassed them …
and that I’m being manipulative”.
Reddit had a surprisingly mixed
reaction to the situation.
“Act like an adult if you want to be
treated like one,” one user commented.
“It’s insane to exclude a celebrant from deciding
who is going to attend their birthday,” another said
