Blood is thicker than water.
This has been drilled into our heads since the day we first opened our eyes. However, it is also the statement used by the ‘family’ to justify their toxic behaviour. After all, they are family, so you should forgive them for whatever they do, right? However, in my humble opinion, family is something you choose. Sure, your parents and siblings are technically your family, but are they really worth keeping in touch with if they treat you horribly? Family members are those who support and love you unconditionally and are there for you when you are at your lowest.
That’s the kind of guy this woman assumed her husband was. After all, he was apparently a wonderful father to her daughter, to whom he was not biologically related. But he went above and beyond for her and his blood-related children. At least, that’s what everyone assumed. That was until her daughter’s birthday when she asked him to legally adopt her. It wasn’t like it would make a difference because he was already her father. But, apparently, this was a step too far for him, and he didn’t want to go there.

Things were going great and when he was asked the question, he said yes.
But it was apparently a lie as he told his wife later on.
He has always treated her like a daughter so this has been a surprise for the wife.
Even the daughter knows that something is wrong now.
He did end up telling the daughter everything which wasn’t a good move on his part.
The daughter has readjusted her mindset and doesn’t call him dad anymore.
But the story doesn’t end there as she did end up thinking of divorce.
And the reason behind that change of heart is clear in this comment she left later on.
While I understand his desire not to adopt a child, he should have been clear from the start. Why did he put on an act for so long if he couldn’t treat her daughter the same way he treated his biological children? I do not doubt that he loves her, but is that enough? And the woman made it clear right away that they came as a package deal. Even his children are now questioning him, and he has broken her heart. I’m glad the woman is considering divorce because how could anyone live with this guy after all of the havoc he’s caused?
I truly feel sad for the kid as she didn’t do anything wrong.
The daughter is just trying to find her way in the world.
And she is so young so I can’t even imagine what she is going through.
After 10 years, anyone would develop feelings.
Did he really think that things would go back to normal?
I have no idea what he actually said but that was implied.
If this is his thought process then I feel sorry for his children.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you think he did the right thing by expressing his emotions? Or do you believe he should have just swallowed his pride and done it anyway?
