This is not my story - but I found it relevant to this sub. (I re-edited for decent paragraphs)


"My step-daughter wants her "Real Dad" to give her away"

My step-daughter will be getting married on August 3rd. The wedding planning has consumed most of her and her mother's life (I say her mother because we aren't married, though we've lived together for 10 years) for the past six months.

My step-daughter graduated last December from University. I paid for her to go to college, though it was a state school, it still ran $40K. She does not have a job and has been living with us for the duration of her college career and since her graduation. I also bought her a car to get back and forth from school when she finished high school.

From time to time her deadbeat father would pop into her life and she would fawn all over him. Although he has not contributed a cent to her education or paid any child support, though that is my girlfriend's fault as c.s. was not part of the settlement, she still loves him and wants him in her life. He stays long enough to break her heart by skipping town and breaking some promise that he made her.

The wedding venue holds 250 people max. I gave them a list of 20 people that I wanted invited, you know, since I was paying for everything. They told me that was no problem and they'd take care of it. So I let these people know they'd be getting an invite and they should save the date. Saturday, I saw one of my friends on this list at the golf course and asked if he was coming. He told me that he wasn't invited. He told me that he got an announcement, but not an invitation. He had it in his back seat (along with probably six months of mail) and showed it to me. Sure enough, it was just an announcement, and my name was nowhere on it. It had her dad's name and her mom's name and not mine.

This led to a pretty big fight with my GF, as I found out that NONE of my list of twenty "made the cut" for the final guest list because "250 people is very tight." I was pissed, but not a hell of a lot I could do because the important people in my life had already been offended. My GF said "if some people didn't rsvp yes, I might be able to get a couple people in." But that is an ultimate slap in the face in my opinion. So, I was boiling on Saturday.

Yesterday, we had a Sunday dinner with the future in-law's family and us and a surprise guest, the "Real Dad." At this little dinner my step-daughter announced that her "Real Dad" was going to be able to make it to her wedding and that now he'd be able to give her away. This was greeted with a chorus of "Oh how great" and "How wonderful"s.

I don't think I have ever felt so angry and so disrespected. I was shaking. I took a few seconds to gather my composure, because I honestly wasn't sure if I would cry or start throwing punches or both. Once I was sure I'd be able to speak I got up from my chair and said I'd like to make a toast. I can't remember exactly what I said but the gist of it was this:

"I'd like to make a toast." The sound of spoons against glasses ring in my years. "It has been my great pleasure to be a part of this family for the past ten years." Awe, how sweet. "At this point in my life I feel I owe a debt of gratitude to bride and groom, because they have opened my eyes to something very important." Confident smiles exchanged. "They have showed me that my position in this family is not what I once thought it was." And now a glimmer of confusion and shock begins to spread on the faces in the room. "Though I once thought of myself as the patriarch or godfather of the family, commanding great respect and sought out for help in times of need, it seems instead that I hold the position of an ATM, good for a stream of money, but not much else. As I have been replaced as host, both on the invitations and in the ceremony, I am resigning my financial duties as host to my successor, Real Dad. So cheers to the happy couple and the path they have chosen." I finished my drink. "You all can let yourselves out."

Is this selfish? I'm supposed to shell out 40 - 50 grand for a wedding that I can't invite anyone to? That I am not a part of? I'm so done with this crap. I'm done with my step-daughter, I'm done with my GF. I transferred the money out of our joint account last night. (she has not had a job since she moved in with me) This morning I called all the vendors I had written checks to for deposits to refund my money. At present it looks like I'll lose around 1500, for the venue, but the other vendors have been great about refunding.

TLDR: You want your "REAL DAD" to be on the invitation, to give you away and to sit at the head table, fine, your "REAL DAD" can pay for everything too.

EDIT: The immediate aftermath was tantrum and people sitting there mumbling while not actually saying anything to me, but to each other. After much yelling with the GF about me being selfish, I spent the night in my home office and no one knocked on my door, not once. Today's aftermath is kind of depressing for me. GF brought me Bride's wedding planner to show me how much work I was ruining. I thumbed through it, found a page in the music section for Father / Daughter dances. All of the songs were catered to Real Dad's taste. So I thought they were just being disrespectful, but now I'm feeling like they never really gave a crap at all, especially since the menu included two ingredients I'm allergic to, that actually made me laugh. Either way, I'm glad to be done, returned the planner and asked her when she and bride could move out. Also, I never promised to pay for the wedding. I offered them the use of my home when they were sure it was going to be small, but other than that, all I've heard is how it's the Bride's family that should pay, so, let it be the bride's family then, aka, not me.

EDIT: June 9th 1:15 am. Girlfriend and Bride are now moved out. They are moving in with the groom. It was very hard not to be petty with some of the "belongings" they took with them, but it's done and I switched out the locks and now it's time for a brew. I can't believe how popular this story got, but I feel good to be given support by so many. If I find out what happens with the wedding, I will let you know, but I can't guarantee that I will put in the effort to find out. From what I've heard they are trying to "scale things back" and get his parents to help out. GF burned bridges when I found out she tried to write herself a check on our joint account the day after the unpleasantness. By then I had already moved money, so I guess I'm a bigger ass than her, but I could feel it coming. That's all. Thanks.

I remember this thread. I check it every so often to see if the guy gives any more updates. Luckily most of Reddit agreed with the guy. The particular sub that this thread was in has been taken over by SRS, so I doubt you would get the same responses now.

[–]puaSenator53 points54 points  (6 children) | Copy

I remember reading it as well. What sub was it in?

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan44 points45 points  (2 children) | Copy

It was posted here before (word for word) but it is still pretty awesome reading it a second time.

I think it was posted like 6+ months ago I'm guessing so some of the newer members would have something to learn from this.

[–]caius_iulius_caesar8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Or the members who aren't on /r/TRP 24/7.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah... well when it was posted the first time it was at the top of the main page for several days... and damn it's already up to +714 points.

[–]Stationary_Wagon74 points75 points  (2 children) | Copy

I think it originally belonged to r/offmychest . It has the highest all-time upvotes on that subreddit. I remember reading it a couple months back.

A few months later there was another one. A different guy, same situation. Everyone pointed him to the one w are discussing. Didn't end as well. Dude number 2 was proud to be used as an ATM.

Can you find it?

Hei, if you bend over, don't cry when it goes in.

Grin and bare it is my motto.

Grin and bear it, he says. Grin and fucking bear it? You know what, I'm done feeling bad for these guys. If they put themselves in these types of situations and their response is something like that then you deserve what you get.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours14 points15 points  (2 children) | Copy

I never have felt bad for them. If they enjoy being used, that's their fetish, so be it.

Grin and bare it. Slightly different connotation. Sounds like he's preparing to get raped.

[–]randomdude6000 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

yeah like the married guy schtick about "if you're not married then you haven't earned the right to complain about women"

On this one job I had a GC (general contractor) supervisor that always made jokes and loved the saying "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free" clearly resented his wife for being a woman (what husband doesn't) and yet would go all gushy talking about how great marriage is. One time we were talking and he goes into this rant about how his wife completes him and balances him out bla bla bla bla bla all I said after was "dude that's gay" and started laughing. So completely emasculated lol

Cognitive dissonance is so funny.

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (1 child) | Copy

What the hell. That guy literally says "So I saw that thread, I agreed with it, but I'm more interested in being a matyr-beta-bucks than stopping other people from using me. Good day!"

SRS?

[–]Evers8947 points48 points  (23 children) | Copy

Shitredditsays. You can pay a visit to the sub if you like. It used to be about funny shit. Now it's a nightmare of pussies and feminists defending and discussing garbage.

[–]menina_realista14 points15 points  (8 children) | Copy

It used to be about funny shit.

I used to think it was a joke sub, kind of like the Flat Earth forums where they pretend to think the world isn't round. A lot of the SRS commenters seem to be serious, though... maybe I'm just gullible.

[–]Evers8919 points20 points  (4 children) | Copy

You're correct they're serious. The fact they're taking what they chat about seriously bothers me.

Fun fact: A lot of reddit thinks they're a joke and a cult. Maybe similar to us, but ironically they're the ones who are supposed to be the "good guys" or some shit.

[–]sliqwilly3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

SRS = Your authority isn't recognized in Fort DickAss

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think you have us confused with /r/gay

[–]Endorsed ContributorrebuildingMyself0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Unfortunately, the admins think they are the "good guys" which is why they constantly overlook their blatant vote brigading and stalking/doxing of people. Hell, the admins even neutered /r/srssucks (and all /r/srssucks was doing was counter-brigading and kept most of their brigades to SRS itself)!

[–]Evers890 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah I've seen that posted here. They get a pass on brigading even though it's blatantly against the rules.

I'm sure they're hoping a vagina will open for that shit.

It's a fucking sin that some of these guys will bend over backwards for a girl.

[–]MartialWay16 points17 points  (2 children) | Copy

SRS are the "Jocks" of the Opression Olympics. If Reddit were High School, SRS would be the towel snapping bullies that make gay jokes and when someone's older brother calls them on it, they get meek and claim "We were just kidding". The joke is that they really ARE awful bigots, pretending to be awful bigots.

[–]caius_iulius_caesar0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Far be it from me to defend /r/SRS, but I've never seen them make gay jokes.

[–]MartialWay0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not sure if serious....the people SRS are bigoted against are white/male/straight/cis. While target of the bigotry and hypocrisy may differ from the metaphor, it's still blatant bigotry and hypocrisy.

[–]lordofsinisterthumps2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Who ARE those people? Is it some bizarre kind of trolling?

[–]Endorsed ContributorrebuildingMyself6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

Social justice warriors. The keyboard white knights of the internet. Basically people with fuck-all else to do in their lives since they've bitched all their friends/boyfriends/relatives out of their lives already.

[–]Shooter-Mcgavinn1 point2 points  (7 children) | Copy

Actually I think it's a private sub. At least it was last time I tried to check it out. Which was the last ask reddit thread asking for worst sub reddits. Srs was listed as one, but ou had to be invited.

[–]Evers894 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy

That's different then. It never used to be... Then again there was a time when we were laughing at the shit they used to post and a bunch of us got banned from it.

I'm sure it's been completely overrun by these butt hurt kids and are now screening members for the circle jerk.

[–]Shooter-Mcgavinn1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

This is what I was thinking. Gotta get real but hurt to lock down a sub.

[–]einexile9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

I think you guys are looking at /r/srs instead of /r/shitredditsays. The latter isn't locked down from my end and I'm banned there.

It's a shame this doesn't get you anything special on your profile page.

[–]mrgrizzlor3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

It doesnt take much to get banned on shitredditsays

[–]Shooter-Mcgavinn1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

You know what. You're right. /r/srs is locked down but not /r/shitredditsays. Thanks for clearing that up.

[–]Terry_Bruce_Dick0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Edit. Ignore. Already covered. Sorry.

[–]QQ_L2P0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I used to be subscribed to it back in the day, had a friend just sent me the "rules" of the sub:

  1. RULE X: SRS is a circlequeef and interrupting the circlequeef is an easy way to get banned. For instance, commenters are not allowed to say "This post is not offensive" or "This is not SRS worthy."
  2. ShitRedditSays is not a downvote brigade. Do not downvote any comments in the threads linked from here! Pretend the rest of Reddit is a museum of poop. Don't touch the poop.
  3. No "ironic" or "satirical" use of slurs.
  4. To our readers: consider this entire sub to be labelled with one gigantic trigger warning.

Apparently they refer to SRS as the "Fempire".

Yeah... shit got weird real fast over there.

[–]umilmi810 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

One of my crowning achievements on reddit is to have a comment of mine featured on SRS and then be banned when I lolled.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy

You know it's funny. Your description of it sounds really dismissing and opinionated, like how most people describe our sub: "a bunch of (labels)_ discussing _(something bad)_. Just something I noticed.

It all makes sense now.

[–][deleted] 4 points4 points | Copy

[–]lordofsinisterthumps2 points3 points  (6 children) | Copy

That's very interesting. It all makes sense now. SA is strange and disturbing, I've seen what they do in Eve Online which they basically completely took over. They may have moved on by now...

They have entire guides on how to warp and distort discourse in online forums.

Do you have links?

[–]QQ_L2P0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

What on earth did they doing to EVE?

[–]lordofsinisterthumps0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well, they started a corporation in Eve called Goonfleet. What they did would really take too long to explain, but they were essentially using large-scale trolling and griefing activities to somehow blackmail or influence the publishers of the game. I don't remember what all they did, it has been a while and there was a shit ton of it.

You know what they are like. Personally I am highly amused by SA's activities but they kind of scare me at the same time.

[–]attheoffice0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]attheoffice0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

no he doesn't, which is why he told you to dig around a bit

Let him answer that, I am mainly looking for a few more hints from where to begin digging. I am particularly interested in manuals on discourse poisoning.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

This would have sounded like a silly conspiracy (who would go to that much trouble?) to the person I was when I found reddit a couple of years ago... but man, nowadays I can hardly read the comment sections of most of the default subs without cringing at all the mutual masturbation going on (and who can forget the god awful endless repetitions of the same 'jokes' - talk about deja vu). r/TheRedPill, and, to a lesser extent, r/mensrights, have acted as a sanctuary from the bullshit.

My first problem would be that any woman with even remotely half a brain to understand that 60 year old cars are vakuable enough to pay for a wedding, shoukd also know they are valuable enough to keep.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (1 child) | Copy

The fact that she wanted to sell something tangible that's invaluable to her fiance as a family heirloom while simultaneously holding REAL value to pay for A SINGLE FUCKING DAY is absolutely insane.

[–]peoplearejustpeople91 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Seriosuly. A wedding is a memory yes; but if it costs you an arm and a leg its NOT WORTH IT!! Keep it simple and cheap to stop the whole profiteering from hollywood romanticism.

I also hate that she wanted to use the money toward the wedding. Why should they spend all his money on one party when they can use the money for a down payment on a house or something. The notion of weddings should be expensive I find very stupid and wasteful.

[–]cbarrett198924 points25 points  (0 children) | Copy

Weddings being expensive harken back to a time when weddings were almost exclusively had by royalty. Fast forward to the age of the $40m a year millionaire and everyone has the same mentality. Its fucking disgusting and marriage itself isnt too far behind.

[–]smallpoxinLA63 points64 points  (8 children) | Copy

What drives me really mad in this story is the fact that they don't see what was wrong with this attitude they had. I wonder sometime if the only solution would be to lecture them one by one to see if they would realize. It literally drives me insane.

[–]sweetleef46 points47 points  (0 children) | Copy

they don't see what was wrong with this attitude they had.

He's a guy with money willing to give it to them. If he keeps giving, take it. If he stops, find another host to latch onto. Right and wrong don't enter their minds, getting their hands on the money is the point. If you know any hard drug addicts you'll recognize the pattern.

The real lesson here is: never get involved with a woman with children. She'll always be thinking of providing for the children first (which is logical), you'll never be able to rank close to the value of her children in her life, and it's likely neither she nor the kids will respect you for supporting another man's child. The dynamic is different if the father has passed away, but it's still a minefield for the new guy.

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (1 child) | Copy

I bet the mom was like "quick honey, tonight while he is alone moping at his office, here's his password to the online portal of his bank account, grab the 50k from their quick. I'll go have a talk with him about why we had to do it."

You can't talk to these people. If they were capable of being reasonable, just, fair, moral, etc etc they wouldn't have done all this in the first place. There is no solution except to let the world teach them that if they are manipulative gold-diggers, they will be put out on their ass. If they contribute value and make a man's life better, they may find a good home.

Yes, very true. Men internalize values and live them. In contrast, women (like children) must be shown by example and consequence what happens if they choose selfish opportunism over mutualism.

I dunno. I do think evolutionary biology has geared women to look for a man who can provide for them and the better a provider he can be the more likely she is to choose him as a mate, but is it the sole motivation..? I know that NAWALT gets thrown around religiously in this subreddit. There's a good chunk of women (I'll even concede that it's probably the majority) who do solely view a man as an ATM and once that is gone so are they but I wouldn't say it's 100% of women out there.

Maybe for this new generation of women..? I definitely see that attitude way more in younger women.

My mom and several friends' mothers were all the breadwinners of the household and they all managed to stay married to our fathers.

AWALT doesn't explain them. I still believe it's true for the majority of women, because like you said - why gamble?

You cannot trust a woman, but you can trust a woman to be a woman. Do you understand?

Oh yeah. Which is why I refuse to get married. Put a ring on it..? Nope. No thank you.

Anyone who thinks they are safe because they got a prenup is kidding themselves. Hollywood makes it seem like they are ironclad when in reality they get thrown out of court all the time.

It'd be great to have an index of these great RP Ah Hah! moments.

Most attacks on RP seem to be that we are angry and bitter misogynistic men but the 2nd stage of loss and grief is Anger.

Red Pill is about killing our illusions ("bad programming") in regards to the rules of attraction. Writing poems never got me laid. Giving women unnecessary praise for accomplishing nothing except being physically attractive didn't get me laid. What gets me laid now is a deep confidence that comes from continually watching this "bad programming" die.

This comment is sidebar material, my friend. Explains concisely the rather cynical and bitter tone of the place.

Most people here are kind and caring human beings who have somewhat recently had their hearts broken by learning that everything they've been promised and taught by people they trusted was a lie and that they were raised, with intention, to be less than they could be.

If someone attacks a grieving person or group of people I think that says something about their empathy or intelligence and so I attribute those failings to the general sections of reddit who seek to demonize.

Whether this is a true story or not, this fable should be entered into the redpill bible as, "The Book of the Alpha fucks, Beta bucks" Every young beta pining for a woman's affection and a family should be made to read this from his alpha brothers, father, or friends and forced to answer questions correctly before being allowed to seek pussy.

And the moral of the story is. Never get involved with a single mother.

My brother's story.

My brother married a woman with 2 kids. He feed, clothed and housed those 2 kids. When they were grown and moved out of the house, the kids never once called him on his birthday or father's day. And here is the kicker. Once the kids were gone. So did the wife. He looks back at his life and realized that he was played big time. The wife used him to raise her kids.

This this bears repeating. DON'T GET INVOLVED WITH SINGLE MOTHERS!

Don't look at them, don't talk to them and in your mind they should be dead to you.

A key part of this is Ignoring society's fable that "single moms" are somehow special. The second key is to ignore your manly instinct to be Capt-Save-A-Ho. There's a reason the 'damsel in distress' is in distress and 99% of the time it's her doing.

[–]2johnnight0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

and 99% of the time it's her doing.

Except for the 1%, the rest is either her aversion to normalize the relationship with the biological father or it was a greater alpha, who feels absolutely no shame or guilt.

Most men can be shamed into having a part in the children's life, because the accusations have a sound moral basis. At some point in their life most men do want the "father experience".

It's most likely, that the problem is her. She despises him and wants to have nothing to do with him.

[–]ButterMyBiscuit14 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy

Single moms aren't inherently bad. If the father died or something drastic happened that's entirely out of her hands. Avoid the casually divorced single moms like the plague, though.

[–]Aaron56517 points18 points  (1 child) | Copy

Fucking amazing.

OP, there is one thing you must do to put icing on the cake. Tell the real dad that you have no hard feelings and explain why you did what you did. Do the same with the groom and his family.

Notice how only the men will agree and the women scorn you for not fulfilling your beta purposes.

Dont worry though loosing those two fucks was a small price to pay for freedom. Oh wait, I forgot paying her college fees. I am very sorry for your loss. (Is there any way to relinquish those payments too?)

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy

I've seen this a long time ago on MR. (They eventually come up with some good content). Good job on him. It sucks that the human mind sometimes needs to reach such a shitty low to wake the fuck up to what is happening.

But at least he woke up. Many, many, many men never do. Or even worse, they do wake up to the truth, but they are little pacifier sucking pussies who lack the spine to assert themselves and break out of the beta bucks role.

Also, single moms will very rarely give a fuck about you beyond your paycheck. I don't blame them for this - if I had a child, I would care about that child more than any other woman. It simply just makes them a horrible choice for a long term mate. Because they have a pragmatic sort of selfishness (once again, not blaming them for having this, it is natural), they will continuously project that onto you. Oh, you won't pay for my spawn's Philosophy degree? Selfish. It goes on and on - the most selfish person in the room sees everyone else as more selfish than they are.

[–]autowikibot1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Here's a bit from linked Wikipedia article about Brood parasite :


Brood parasites are organisms that use the strategy of brood parasitism, a kind of kleptoparasitism found among birds, fish or insects, involving the manipulation and use of host individuals either of the same (intraspecific brood-parasitism) or different species (interspecific brood-parasitism) to raise the young of the brood-parasite. This relieves the parasitic parent from the investment of rearing young or building nests, enabling them to spend more time foraging, producing offspring etc. Additionally, the risk of egg loss to raiders such as raccoons is mitigated, by having distributed the eggs amongst a number of different nests. As this behaviour is damaging to the host, it will often result in an evolutionary arms race between parasite and host.

Shit doesn't matter in some countries.

In mine we have defacto partnerships, they can still gouge you even if you're not married, just so long as you check enough boxes in the criteria of defacto partnerships.

[–]aalex4405 points6 points  (6 children) | Copy

This is what terrifies me - in some jurisdictions (mine included) if you're in a co-habiting LTR for a certain length of time you're considered to be in a 'de facto relationship' and if the relationship ends the partners could lay claim to the other's assets.

[–]_Reticent_5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy

We call this 'Common Law Marriage' in England. My dad told me a sneaky way to mitigate the damages if you are co-habiting though, and it's all about paper-trail.

Essentially, this only works if she comes and lives with you/you have your own home.

Keep all bills in your name, mortage, gas, electric, water, council-tax, etc. but make her pay for the shopping; something that is disposible and has no address linking the purchase to the property, and get her to send her mail to her home/a forwarding address.

The timeframe is two years for CLM in England, so provided you can keep this going it should mitigate the amount owed (if any) as there will be no proof of her having contributed.

They can't be entitled to half, or anything for that matter, if you have been providing it and can prove so.

[–]aalex4402 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

That's interesting. I'm not sure if the paper-trail method works here in New Zealand, but people used to put their houses into family trusts which were immune - but I believe that's changed now.

A colleague of mine told me that when his relationship ended, his five houses - owned by a company he owned - were split between them. The only way around it is to get a new partner before every 3 years. Or perhaps by having your property business owned by a holding company in the Bahamas...

i know this post is old but i just stumbled on it, My Parents told me the same thing, turns out its complete bullshit.

Unless you are married or have children you cannot and will not ever be held responsible for a partners debts/bills/expenses unless you specifically cosigned a contract stating so (in the UK).

Infact additionally you don't owe partners debts either, so if you wife before marriage has a debt of £10k and then marries you, that's still her debt and bailiffs cannot seize your property.

common law marriage is just a scare story, legally it has no truth to it at all

[–]TRP VanguardCyralea2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

The speech was probably impromptu spur-of-the-moment thing than something he planned.

He picked the perfect time to drop the bomb and was quick and diligent in mopping up the mess the next day.

As others have said it's a GF not wife so she's not technically entitled to half of everything.

In the end he was dead on... They were just using him as an ATM.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (8 children) | Copy

The spur-of-the-moment explanation is consistent and plausible. But since it's an unverified story, instead of getting too bogged down in those details, I think it's better to treat it as a fable or parable and discuss the lessons.

One of those lessons is to do with closure. Making the speech gave him emotional closure, and if the story is true it all worked out for him. But it's a dangerous thing. He's emotional, caught on the back foot, unlikely to express himself wisely or well. He's on enemy territory, with none of his own friends in the wedding party, so the worst possible interpretation will be put on anything he says.

The more important closure he should have been looking for at that moment was business closure. He's found out that he's been screwed in a complex, long-term business transaction, so his priority should have been to cut his losses. Since his partner has been treating it all along as a business transaction, he should assume that she knows where the assets are stashed and how to take possession of them quickly. In this particular story, the partner was evidently slow off the mark in her asset grab, so it worked out ok for him. I'm surprised that he managed to recover his deposits for the wedding costs - he must be an unusually persuasive negotiator.

The length of his relationship and the financial support of the stepdaughter can mean in some jurisdictions that his relationship is treated as a de-facto or common-law marriage.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan9 points10 points  (7 children) | Copy

Yeah... the lesson people should take from this is that everyone has their breaking point.

Seriously if they had invited his 20 people or made at least one of the meals with something he wasn't allergic to... Yeah, he'd still probably be sailing through a blue pill storybook life. The big old fuck you's thrown in his direction basically made him realize he was spending $50k on something he was not going to be able to enjoy and he said fuck this shit and torpedoed the ATM machine bullshit LIKE A BOSS.

He could potentially be at risk of paying alimony but lets assume that he is not since I don't think there are many states or jurisdictions that have the whole marriage by adhesion thing going.

Yup. My friend was fucked up the ass by squatter's rights laws in CA. He was paying the full rent, she was just mooching off him, they broke up, he couldn't kick her out. He didn't want to just lift her and chuck her shit out because he rightfully knew that could land him in jail. Eventually the landlord couldn't evict her so they had to take it to court, which ruled that she had "squatters rights" for 60 more days there. He had to just deal with it and pay 2 more months of rent himself, even though the landlord had a candidate to move in and replace her, which would help him with rent.

He eventually couldn't be in the same place as her and his landlord offered him his couch (they were bros). After the 60 months, she racked up 1200$ worth of damages to the apartment because she didn't give a fuck, then jetted. Luckily the landlord was well off and could afford a great lawyer, and she was sued for the damages + court fees. She of course, disappeared and we couldn't figure out how to garnish her wages or anything, since she didn't do shit. The two of them + the lawyer tracked down her parents, explained the entire situation, and the dad shrugs and says "Yeah. Sounds like something she would do. Here's a check for the lost rent and the damages. This whole time I was sending her 1.5k a month for rent and groceries, she told me she was paying for it..."

First rule of women + money is that you never join accounts till you are married. And you can swap this with money + men if you want. Men are capable of being petty too, and situations where a relationship goes south and it's the woman who's got the financial leverage are becoming more common.

Second rule of money and women is that you never give her access to your accounts. Period. This ain't about being nice, its about a woman with an addictive personality and a preference to gambling getting access to your 401k and blowing it on risky investments.

Third rule is that you have money set aside in an account she will never know about. It can be as little as 1,000 bucks or 100,000. It should be enough to keep you afloat with little financial stress for anywhere from 3 months to a year, depending on your line of work and how long it can take to get a new job. You have to assume she's going to trump charges against you that aren't real, which gets you fired from your job even if you're acquitted. Or just that she shit talks her way into getting you fired.

Fourth? Assuming you do merge accounts never put all your eggs in one basket. If you ever divorce or break up you can assume that within a day any shared accounts will be completely empty.

Okay, I'm going to play the devil's advocate here: you teach people how you want to be treated. If you act like an ATM that's all you'll ever be to them. Money is no substitute for other things also that may have been lacking on that relationship either.

Now at that point, breaking up and refusing to pay up seems like a better choice that whatever this guy was doing until then.

three cheers for this man :)

[–]EnduroRacer2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Speechless with a huge grin on my face. Bravo my friend, bravo.

[–]1RXRob2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I love this story so much

[–]Deano1012 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I hope he took his friends out for a good time on the day of the wedding - he's saved $40k* afterall, that's worth celebrating

[–]minorthreat772 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

You forgot the "k"

[–]Deano1010 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks

[–]SgtSplacker2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good move man, sorry this happened to you.

[–]Doctor_Mayhem2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good on this guy. Man, does that red pill moment hurt. I can think of few things that hurt worse than the red pill moment that makes a man see everything clearly, and they're all physical.

But it's worth it.

Anyone else feel a strange sense of relief after, hell, even during that painful moment?

[–]pbfryman2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good job op, fuck them both

[–]bh32442 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Prevention is the best medicine, but treatment makes for a much better story

[–]Coolpapa2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Standing ovation. Slow, deliberate clapping.

[–]DanReggins5 points6 points  (4 children) | Copy

The RP is extremely bitter. It never gets less so. But it's the most healthy pill a self-respecting male can take. So we do it.

Take it as soon as you can. With the $40k that this man WASTED, you can instead live like a king for FOUR YEARS -- without working -- in a nice tropical country fucking lots of young, hot women bareback.

That said, it is never too late to take it.

His "girlfriend" wanted a beta. Make no mistake -- him swallowing the RP didn't suddenly make him an alpha superstud. No, his "girl" left him.

But that's ok, because some women WANT a beta provider. But, as he clearly demonstrated, that is not in ANY man's best interest.

The scariest and most amazing part of this story? The cuckolding bitch moving in with the NEW groom. Is that what he was hoping for with the expensive wedding?

Again -- why get married? To be the beta of a bitch who learned from her cuckolding mother and wanted her "real" "alpha" felon half-man "dad" there?

tell me more about this plan.

[–]lordofsinisterthumps0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I agree, that was exactly what I was going to say.

He wasn't cuckolded - thats when your wife pretends someone else's bastard is yours. And the groom they moved in with is the daughter's husband. Ha! Poor bastard now has poisonous, gold digging MIL under his own roof. Wold it be nice if he learned something form the OP and thew the two of them out, too?

[–]DanReggins0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You understand what I meant.

Would it be nice if he learned something form the OP and thew the two of them out, too?

That's what we're all about, man.

[–]Mightyskunk4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think I just went gay. For this dude only.

[–]TheLawlessMan1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I can't imagine how I would have felt in his position and I don't think I would have been able to handle it as smoothly as he did. Not even the bride was on his side. Congratulations on getting out (to the original guy).

[–]TheRabid2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I hope that I never have to find out. I think that he let them off too easily. Much much too easily.

[–]slcjosh1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I remember this guy. Hope he turned out alright.

[–]swaggerjackerr1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]SILENTSAM691 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

That was very inspirational. Way to show people how not to be treated as a tool.

[–]SpecialBuddy1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I am impressed that he was able to hold on to his nuts in this one. Good job.

Fucking beautiful, hope this guys much happier now he deserves it.

[–]frugal_masturbater1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Dude you are in the right, fuck the two of them. Goes to show you, as a man you can't do things right.

GOOD ON YOU, this whole thing. You have more than done your "part", way more. Enjoy your brews and post if you need something.

[–]Idontlikekarmawhores1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I cant believe people let others use them like that! Damn! I m so terrible sad :( what has happen to my fellow men :(

[–]jobs33ker1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Seriously who the fuck sends an "announcement" to someone they aren't actually inviting?

[–]caius_iulius_caesar0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

People used to put it in the newspapers.

[–]nov61 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

What's your occupation? Sounds like a pretty solid one. Just curious.

This was amazing! I have just started to understand the red pill, and you sir are a hero. Hope life is treating you well, and you are enjoying the kind of life you deserve!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Welcome back to manhood brother! It took you a while but definitely better late than never! Your story literally filled me with joy

[–]pwrfull0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Nice story. Source?

[–]pwrfull0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Because citation.

[–]Manuel_S0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You, sir, are worthy of respect. It can't have been easy, but yes, if they were even a bit considerate one thing might have slipped, but not all of that. They just couldn't give a small shit about you.

Therefore you were not selfish, merely correct and timely.

Is it not selfish to get 250 people but not the 20 you care about? Or - everything else.

From the way she's idealized him, your GF may be still hankering for the old flame, who perhaps is kinda alpha considering the deal he got from her. If he was the "scumbag who abandoned us" she'd not have let her daughter make it all about him... maybe somebody had a dream of leading their daughter together down the aisle.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Brilliant speech sir.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I'm glad he finally woke up but they used him for a long time. So much so that's probably not even that heartbreaking to them. More of a "Damn this sucks but we sure got a lot while it lasted" attitude.

Sounds like he has a good job and makes good money. If I were him I would do my best to make sure she doesn't get a good job and never puts to use that degree I paid for.

[–]Doctor_Mayhem4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Considering the typical women of such a scenario, I got a feeling that even if he didn't fuck with her, she still couldn't get a good job with her likely useless liberal arts degree.

[–]jethreezy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

To have gotten into that dreadful situation, he was definitely beta for far longer than 10 years. But of course, better late than never.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I love you. So much.

You went from a guy we would be laughing at for weeks to one we can respect in just a few short paragraphs.

I only want you to do one thing for me now: Enjoy the rest of your life. Make those ingrates understand exactly what they just lost. And never let this shit happen again. If you can afford to buy them cars, and pay for their school, etc etc etc, you can afford to take some time off and find a real god damn woman, and not any of these filthy gold digging whores it has been your displeasure to be stuck with.

Edit: Lolreading. Who was the original poster so I can forward this to whom it belongs?

your a great guy, I would have just came back with a shotgun.

[–]magical_artist-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

This summaries the totality of my fears as a step-dad.

It will suck, but I will expect the brattiness (Already in full swing at age 9).

I will expect her to as a teenager say "you're not my real dad!"

I will expect her to rebel hard, probably be a bitchy/skanky/slut etc. Daddy issues, hunting down her criminal dead-beat dad, otherwise choices etc.

But this, THIS, the utter disrespect! I hope if such an hour comes to pass, I will be so articulate, so bold.

DAMN!

[–]winndixie-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

Oh my god. That moving of money was a stroke of genius.

I am new to RP. First things first, I agree with 100% with what OP has done.

I have some honest questions though: Why not tell your wife right after you found out the fucked up invitations? "I really want these people to come." Tell her what you saw through her deception: that it was an announcement, you were ignored and disrespected. Then, to confirm, contact the venue yourself to make sure these people got seats.

I anticipate this would lead to an argument where the GF has room for argument-kungfu. But why didn't he communicate?

[–]japantz2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

probably was giving them the benefit of the doubt, as he was paying for all their shit. He was blue pillin it, thinking that anyone who received a favor from someone they cared about or respected wouldn't take a steaming dump on his chest when it came to what he wanted.

in the midst of what george carlin called "the pussification of the american male," it pumps me up to see a man find his testicles in the most baller of fashion. cheers bro.
