A husband ACTUALLY turned to the internet for advice about an argument he had caused with his wife.
He admitted to siding with his mother after she criticized his wife for not keeping the house clean and there were some strong feelings online about this.
“I’ll get straight to the point,” the husband wrote at the top of his anonymous post to Reddit.
“My mother visited us yesterday morning at 10am while I was at work.
“She must have found the house messy because once she left she called me to say bad things about how dirty and messy the house was.
“She talked at length about my wife’s attitude and almost kicked her out because she pointed out that the house looked dirty and smelled.”
The husband then said that he had basically forgotten about the conversation until his wife got mad when he got home from work that night.
Apparently, his mother had not only complained about the house, but also directly insulted his wife and even called her with offensive and racist terms.
The husband thinks the best way to handle the situation is to tell his wife to forgive his mother, which further upsets his wife.
He even said that his wife threatened to ban his mother from the house if she didn’t apologize because she never wanted to be treated like that again.
Things only got worse when he sided with his mother.
“I say it’s an exaggeration because, one, she knows how scary a clean mom can be and two, and to be honest here, she should tidy up if don’t want any negative comments from mom. or any other guest for that matter,” the husband recalled in his post.
“She said she practically didn’t have time to clean up when taking care of the kids and the dishes and other things, and stressed that mom should have basic human courtesy and be called first. “
The husband agrees that his mother should call before coming, but the argument that ensues turns into his mother being disrespectful in front of her grandchildren and how his wife feels she doesn’t have to worry. worry about housework around the clock.
“I said I got it but she really did it [deal] out of it,” the husband explained.
“I can talk to my mom about visiting times now but I think my wife has a responsibility here too.”
He added that he felt like he was caught in the middle “and blamed for the behavior of both.”
The husband ends the post by asking if he is the bad guy in this situation.
Unfortunately for him, the internet has strongly agreed that he is.
“Your mom showed up unannounced while your wife was taking care of the young kids, berating her and calling her racial slurs BEFORE YOUR CHILDREN, and you just: ‘Meh. Guess you should clean better, maid bang,” one reader insisted.
“Basically, start being a more respectful husband, father, and partner than a coward, a coward, who can’t stand his mother and defends his wife.”
“Your mother used racist slurs against your wife in front of your children.
“Why don’t YOU clean up before your mom arrives,” a second suggested.
However, another protestant user wrote: “Your mom was rude to your wife in her own home and the fact that you don’t see this as an issue is frankly bizarre.
“Why does your mom think cleaning is 100% your wife’s responsibility?”
The husband did not update his post in response to the harsh criticism of the article.
Of course, this is not the first time that the daughter-in-law and mother-in-law have made their problems public.
Previously, a Mother revealed that she did not believe her mother-in-law enough to allow her to be alone with her daughter due to her unconventional views on breastfeeding.
In addition, another mother-in-law has accused of telling her son he shouldn’t get married because monogamy is not good for him.
