A stepdaughter took to Reddit to ask if she was wrong to chase her stepmom from her house.
The woman had asked the 23-year-old to leave, not realizing that the young woman owned the house. The mom soon discovered that she would be the one leaving.
Her father's miscommunication issue was behind the dramatic situation the woman and her stepmom found themselves in.
Good communication is important in any relationship. Some situations can't get resolved until people work them out.
The woman wanted Redditors to tell her if she was a jerk for telling the truth which resulted in her dad and stepmother moving out of her house.
Her post has already received more than 8k upvotes and more than 700 comments.
According to the 23-year-old, her family lives in her grandparents' house. Her mother passed away more than 10 years ago after losing her battle with cancer.
Her father worked out of town but he would always spend time with her when he was around.
Although her mother was gone, the young woman had a pretty good life.
Her grandparents passed away a few years back after getting infected with COVID.
She was the only person they had put on their will, which means she ended up owning their money, house, and truck.
After her mother passed away, her dad started dating again. However, he did not bring anyone to the house until he met the young woman's stepmother-to-be.
The woman has two kids, and as their relationship got serious, they moved in.
Since moving in, it has been six months. Her stepmom is expecting another child, which is why she wants the 23-year-old to move out so that the newborn can have her room.
Unfortunately, her dad forgot to tell the stepmom that the house was not his. She brought up the issue after he got back from work.
The stepmom wanted the young woman to move to the city after completing her studies. She went as far as offering her stepdaughter her apartment at a discounted price.
This was rather strange since she was living cost-free under the young woman's roof.
When the woman gave her dad a chance to break the news to her stepmom himself, he did not. Therefore, she told the stepmom that she owns the house and would not be leaving as she had requested.
She also told her about her dad's savings and the fact that he might be in a position to afford a house. The original poster also suggested her she could also sell her apartment and use the money for a down payment on a house.
Regardless of the situation, she made it clear that she wanted them to move out before the baby was born. For this reason, she wanted to know if she was a jerk for handling the matter as she did.
Other internet users shared their opinion on the matter. Many felt that she had no choice since her father failed to communicate with her stepmother properly.
They also reminded her that they did not give her any other choice but to kick her out. They were especially shocked by her stepmother's offer to rent her apartment to her while living in her house for free.
