Traditions are usually respected. It’s a very common principle to let people do whatever they want, however bizarre it appears to you. However, there’s a hidden exception to this — let someone do what they want, as long as it doesn’t directly harm you.
Below, we’ll meet a man and his disheartened wife. According to his story in the famous AITA subreddit, this man’s mother would often ask women in the family to provide dessert samples. The man’s wife always tried her best and pushed her limits. However, this year, she was rejected again, after many times. She had enough and decided to not attend the family’s Christmas gathering.
