A 32-year-old Redditor had shared on Reddit’s “AITA” subreddit. The man had stated that he is together with his wife, 34-year-old “Andy,” for three years, and married for one year.
From his wife’s previous marriage, “Andy” had a 16-year-old daughter, which OP named as, “Carrie.”
“She is a daughter from my wifes previous marriage. Her father (my wifes ex-husband) died in a car accident about 5 years ago.” OP wrote.
The man added that they took things way slower for Carrie to be able to understand what was happening, and when they got introduced with each other, Carrie was so distant with OP, and also she was mean against him.
“But I understood that, of course. I tried to bond with her and spend some time together, but I never forced her to do anything she didn’t want to do. I told her to address me with my first name and had no intention to “replace” her father, I just wanted us to get along.” OP wrote in his post.
Then the things went better, but despite that, she was sometimes rude against the Redditor. The man never said anything to her, as his wife asked for time for her daughter, to get used to it.
Later, OP offered to Andy to live in his house with Carrie, after their marriage, and she accepted. Carrie was not that into it.
“That’s when the problems started. Carrie would intentionally make mess in the kitchen (like destroying glasses and plates) and leave the sharp glass on the ground. She would throw things out of the window and insult our neighbors etc… this would happen like twice a week. I admit I have a bad temper so sometimes I yelled at her and made her clean her mess, but I never laid my hands on her and never physically punished her.” OP continued.
His wife tried so much to stop her, but she didn’t stopped.
“This went on for about a year. Last week she had outdone herself. Me and Andy were coming home from dinner and the garage door was open. We found Carrie there and she was destroying my car (I have BMW X5, so a pretty expensive one). She slashed two tires with a knife and scratched the surface with her keys. I completely snapped, I told her evil little b* and to get the f* out of my house.” OP wrote.
As his wife sided with her daughter, OP was so furious that he kicked his wife too, as he wrote, “I was furious and told my wife that if she’s ok with Carrie destroying my stuff, she can get the f* out as well. We argued about 15 minutes, during the argument I said that I want Carrie to pay for my car and If she won’t I will sue her ( I have camera in my garage and have everything recorded ). Andy told me I can’t do that and that I’m heartless, in response to that I told them both to pack their bags and get out (it was almost 12pm). They packed and left.”
