A woman shared on Reddit how her husband blamed her for creating a scene about his mother violating their privacy.
Husbands are infamous to be all mama's boys. Be that jokingly or otherwise, husbands cannot and should not just shut their eyes to some obvious issues that their mother can be causing for the couple. It's understandable that conflicts arise and families aren't really that sorted at all times. If you say you've not been a part of a family drama, then you're probably trying to cover one up! Emotions come into play, blurring the definitions of right and wrong, and all sorts of chaos unfold. Check this anecdote written by a wife on Reddit, describing her furious husband, losing it over his wife's act of giving a fake house key to his snoopy mother.
Recently, a Reddit user u/Checkinout2022 took to the community to share her bit of family drama that unfolded at a Christmas get-together. She shares a rather uncanny doing of her mother-in-law's. She wrote in her post, "I married my husband a year ago. His mom is snoopy and annoying AF. She can't help it that is just how she is as my dear in-laws say. My husband and I purchased a new house recently. My MIL kept pushing to get an emergency key, She promised that she only use it in an emergency but given the fact that she had an emergency key to our old apartment and walked in on us being intimate twice (but my husband didn't think it was big deal) I just couldn't trust her so I just sent her a fake key (after she kept pushing) and she had a smug on her face after I hand delivered it to her."
On Christmas eve, her doubts about her MIL proved to be true. "On Christmas dinner, MIL angrily "called me out" on the fact I gave her a fake copy of the house key. She shamed me for doing this in front of everyone but in my defense, I asked her how she found out and she said days ago when she came over at 4 while my husband and were out. I reminded her "didn't you promise you wouldn't use it unless there's an emergency? So you tried to get in when there was no emergency and you broke the promise you made to us!" She looked red in the face and the other family started staring some even laughed at her for the face she made. She suddenly got up from her seat and rushed into the kitchen where she had a huge meltdown so loud the next-door neighbors must've heard — literally, I've never heard a 60-year-old woman throw a tantrum like that."
Exposing the mother-in-law in such a manner obviously stirred awkwardness and anger among the family members. "Needless to say, dinner went awkward and my husband and his sister were giving me looks. My husband went off on me in the car and said I lied and manipulated and humiliated and exposed his mom and said he wouldn't have let me get away with it had he known. We had an argument and he is demanding I apologize to his mom for my childish behavior and for ruining Christmas dinner for the whole family." She sought opinions on the situation on the platform, wondering if her husband's rage in the matter was justified or if was she in the wrong.
Lots of comments poured in. Major users were quick to point out how the husband screamed was completely wrong. "Basic respect. The fact the husband is trying to defend this behavior should be eye-opening for OP." Another one said, "Your husband is clearly a bigger problem than your MIL and that is saying a LOT!"
Others were appalled by the mother-in-law's lack of a sense of boundaries. "This woman walked in on them in the act, TWICE, has constantly trampled boundaries, invaded their privacy, disrespected their wishes, and has continued to prove that she is not trustworthy." Another one pointed out "Your MIL is a weirdo and needs to learn boundaries." One user was shocked to hear about their
