As if being cheated on wasn’t enough, this Redditor’s unfaithful partner and his mistress just asked her to carry three of their kids for them. It’s insane and absolutely inconsiderate, so she refused!
OP (Original Poster) and her ex, Harry, met in high school through mutual friends and “instantly connected.” They started dating not long after OP graduated high school, and now that she looked back on it, things were going “extremely fast.”
Their Own Little Family
They moved in together after college. Then, two years after they started living together, OP got pregnant with their daughter.
She wrote, “He was automatically excited to become a father, and I was thrilled that we were going to become a little family.”
An Emergency Call
Everything was going fine until OP was in labor and got a call from Harry’s friend, telling her that he and Harry were supposed to meet, but he didn’t show.
OP, in turn, told him that she’d tried getting in touch with him, too, as she was about to give birth. Both OP and Harry’s friend were worried about what might have happened to him at this point.
Sadly, after OP gave birth, she received another call from Harry’s friend, telling her that Harry was at his mistress’ house.
OP was shocked, so she immediately hung up. She started crying, but thankfully, she wasn’t alone; her mom was with her, and she calmed OP down.
No Room for Explanations
When Harry learned that OP knew about his affair, he tried to explain. However, OP no longer cared.
She said, “I immediately packed my bags, took my name off the lease, and went to live with my parents.”
Five Years Later
When OP shared her story on the thread, five years had passed since she found out about Harry’s affair. She said she’s now in a “much better place physically and mentally.”
Harry and OP ultimately decided to co-parent their daughter, and he’s now engaged to the woman he cheated on OP with. OP noted, “It stung, but I got over it.”
Complications at Birth
OP then shared that Harry and his mistress now have two kids together. Unfortunately, after Harry’s mistress gave birth to their second child, she found out that, due to “complications within birth,” she couldn’t have more kids.
The couple was crushed, and OP “sympathized” with them to keep the peace for her daughter.
A Coffee Date Between Women
Two days before this story was posted, OP received a message from Harry’s now fiancé asking her if they could meet at a local cafe. Though OP agreed, she noted that this was “odd” since they never really spoke unless they were at parties and gatherings.
She noted that she usually spoke to Harry regarding everything and anything.
Something Was Up
They met the day before this story was posted, and as soon as OP walked inside, she saw Harry sitting at a table as well. So, she “immediately” knew that “something was up.”
When she sat down, they said they would come up and say what they wanted to say straight without going in circles.
What an Absurd Request!
Though OP knew something was up, she wasn’t expecting what the couple would ask of her. Harry said, “Due to us not being able to have another child, we were wondering if you would be our surrogate.”
OP thought it was a joke. However, Harry’s fiancé just said, “We are dead serious. We want at least five babies, so we need you to be a surrogate for us for three babies.”
Laughing Her Way Out
OP couldn’t believe what was happening, and she burst into laughter. She said, “You—you want me to carry three babies for you?”
OP added, “I literally couldn’t stop laughing at the audacity to ask such a thing from me.”
Harry’s fiancé started crying and allied OP “so many names,” then stormed out. Harry stood up to follow, but not before telling OP some hurtful words himself.
He said, “This is why didn’t work. You’re a horrible human being; you’re so heartless. We asked one thing from you, and you laughed in our faces.”
You’re the Reason Why!
However, OP wasn’t letting him step all over her. She instead told Harry off and made him realize that he was the one who blew up their relationship.
OP said, “No, we didn’t work because you’re a cheating scumbag. You have two kids—three, including our daughter. You want a surrogate? Then save all the money you spend on your fiancé’s rich lifestyle and get one.”
She returned to her mom’s place, and though her side of the family was backing her up, many others thought she was wrong.
OP shared, “I got bombarded with calls and texts from my ex, his fiancé, his mom and dad and sisters, and even his fiancé’s family—all calling me an a**hole.” Because of this, OP can’t help but wonder if she had been “too harsh” on them and if she was a jerk for just laughing at them.
Cutting off All Ties
In an edit, OP shared that she had blocked everyone, putting her in a negative headspace. At the same time, she started looking for legal advice so she could get full custody of her daughter.
She realized “how neglectful” her ex had been toward their child, and she refused to put her through his “so-called promises.”
Letting the Chaos Unravel
OP also refuses to continue “living in fear of that cheating gargoyle,” especially since his fiancé has been posting all over social media that OP is a “heartless piece of crap” who was “so selfish” for not wanting to help them have a child.
So, as payback, she posted every screenshot and evidence she had on her ex and how he cheated. She added, “I tagged them all, then deleted Messenger, took the apps off my phone, and let the chaos unravel while watching Encanto with my daughter.”
Redditors’ Reactions and Thoughts
For users, OP handled everything as well as she could. There were no words for how entitled OP’s ex and his mistress acted.
One said, “Since when did your uterus become rental property? Tell Harry all communication from now on will be only in regards to your child and through a parenting app. Block everyone else harassing you. Not the a**hole.”
“I sincerely hope they don’t find a single uterus because these people should not be having or raising kids. Her own uterus breaking after the second one was probably Mother Nature’s way of trying to nip the problem in the bud,” commented another woman.
What should OP do next? Do you think Harry and his new fiancé deserve more kids?
