In a recent Reddit post, a user found herself at the center of a family dispute when it came to selecting a godmother for her firstborn child. Here’s the full story.
Choosing a Godmother Was Important
Ann, the youngest among four sisters, comes from a Catholic family where baptizing children and choosing godparents holds significant importance.
Her Sister Didn’t Choose Her
Over the years, her sister, Mary, has had three children, and Ann was not chosen as a godmother on each occasion.
She Was Not Chosen as a Bridesmaid Either
Additionally, Ann was not asked to be one of her bridesmaids when Mary got married, even though Ann and Mary were the closest sisters.
She Didn’t Care
While these decisions initially did not bother Ann, she quietly acknowledged her sister’s choices, understanding that it was ultimately Mary’s prerogative to decide.
She Is Pregnant
Fast forward to the present, and Ann recently discovered that she is expecting her first baby.
The Moments of Joy
The news brought joy and excitement to the family, as Ann is the last of her sisters to embark on the journey of motherhood.
They Were Planning the Baptism
Along with her husband, Ann began planning for their child’s baptism, which included selecting godparents.
Her Sister Wanted to Be the Godmother
During this process, Mary confidently stated that she would be the godmother of Ann’s child.
She Said No
However, Ann surprised her by stating that the godparents had already been chosen.
Her Sister Was Angry
This revelation prompted a negative reaction from Mary, who called Ann names and promptly informed their mother of the situation.
Her Mother Didn’t Want to Get Involved
To Ann’s disappointment, their mother seemed indifferent, shrugging off the issue as “not her problem.”
She Felt Guilty
Feeling torn, Ann questions whether her decision to exclude Mary as the godmother is petty or unreasonable.
Despite the close bond she shares with Mary, Ann recognizes that there are certain boundaries and limitations within their sibling relationship.
While Ann admits feeling a sense of guilt, she firmly believes that her decision was not driven by revenge or a desire to hurt Mary.
She Gave Her Reasons
Instead, Ann feels justified in her choice, considering the times she was not selected as a godmother or included in Mary’s wedding party.
You Get What You Give
Ann took to Reddit to ask whether she was in the wrong for what happened and several Redditors sided with her, saying she was not wrong.
One Reddit user wrote, “It’s your personal choice who is or isn’t a godmother. Plus, she will always be an Aunt to your baby. It’s really bizarre to me that she’s the sister you’re closest to and she didn’t make you a bridesmaid though. Very strange behavior on her part.”
She Has No Right to Be Hurt
Another Redditor commented, “So your sister gave you no consideration and is now hurt because you didn’t consider her. Shocking.”
