Woman leaves husband frustrated with response to mother-in-law’s ‘cruel’ comments

A woman overheard her mother-in-law (MIL) saying negative things about her and went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to discuss the issue. “I overheard my MIL talking to her sister … [she] asked [my MIL] how she felt about me (we were newly married)”. “[My] MIL said, ‘I don’t hate her or anything, but honestly it sucks when for the rest of your life you have to invite someone you don’t want to Christmas dinner’”. The user didn’t confront her mother-in-law but told her husband about the situation. “He said it sucks, but she was probably just trying to work through her feelings,” the woman wrote. “I told him that I didn’t ever want to go on another family vacation or holiday because of what she said”. “Now that Thanksgiving is coming up I am sticking to that and he is upset because he thought I would get over it”. Reddit users were sympathetic to the woman’s plight. “If she continues to be cruel then absolutely there is no reason to put yourself through that,” one user said. “Your husband should have your back,” another said
