AITA for making a scene when my son refused to dance with me?

“This all started when my son Ben graduated high school. There was a formal dance. I was very excited for the mother-son dance. Every time I brought it up, Ben would say he wasn’t going to dance. I didn’t take him seriously. I thought he was just being shy.

When we got to the formal, everything was beautiful. But when it came time for the formal dances, he was nowhere to be seen. I approached my older daughter, Alice, and my husband, who I could see were talking and laughing.

I asked if they’d seen Ben, and they laughed and said he was going to go hide so he didn’t have to dance. I was absolutely heart broken. My son was literally hiding from me! I stood in the corner during the mother-son dance, watching all his friends dance with their moms. I couldn’t take it, so I told my husband and daughter that I was walking home.

When they got home, Ben walked right past me and went to his room to get ready for the after party. My daughter hugged me, and went to get ready, because she was driving Ben to the party. After our children left, my husband and I had an argument about what happened. He said he was appalled at my behaviour, and that I was acting like a child.

I said that the least Ben could have done was dance with his mother. He said that today was supposed to be about him and his accomplishment, not me. But in my opinion, today should have also been about celebrating the people who helped him get to where he is now. Things got quite heated, and before going inside, my husband said that he wasn’t going to force his son to do something he didn’t want to do on his day.

I was taken aback by this, so I just stayed on the porch trying not to cry. I thought my husband would support me. Later, my daughter returns home and sees me crying. She gives me a hug and gave me a chocolate bar to try to cheer me up. If no one else, my daughter would be on my side.

She danced with me at her graduation. She danced with her father. She understood how important this day was for me. I asked if she was on my side. She said something along the lines of “I know you’re upset, but I don’t know what you expected from him”.

It took a few days before we really spoke to each other again, and after a few weeks, everything went back to normal.

Coming back to the present, my daughter recently got engaged. We were talking about it on a family facetime, and the topic of when Ben will get married came up. He said he was never going to get married, because he doesn’t want to deal with another round of dance drama. When I asked him to clarify, he said that he was obviously referring to his graduation.

I was appalled at this attack. He won’t get married because of me? I won’t lie, I am upset that he still does not want to dance with me, even at his own wedding. Now my husband is mad at me, my son refuses to answer my calls or texts.

AITA for making a scene and starting an argument because my son never wants to dance with me?”
