Christmas is supposed to be a time for family — but which family should it be, your parents or your kids?
That's what one dad is asking after he agreed to spend Christmas with his parents and not his wife and children. He's wondering if leavine his wife and kids alone on Christmas would make him an a-hole.
So, I(29m) and my wife(28f) have been together for 10 years, we have three children(3m,4f, 6f). Recently my mother called me saying that she and my father are going to have a Christmas dinner, but only for their immediate family. So only me, my siblings, and my parents are attending, no spouses or children. I am most likely going to go(all my siblings agreed to go) since it has been a while since I spend some time just hanging out with my immediate family.
I told my wife about it and how I plan on going, she seemed sad but agreed I could go. Today I was on the phone with my BIL(we’re good friends) and I told him I will be going to my parent’s house for Christmas alone. My BIL called me selfish and said, “that is why my sister was so sad this weekend”, I told him where I go for Christmas isn’t his business.
