A WOMAN’S stunned to find out her mother-in-law insisting to sleep in her and her partner’s bedroom whilst staying the night.
The shocked Reddit user took to the platform’s AITA (Am I the A**hole) section to seek advice from fellow members after her mother-in-law’s visit ended with quite the scene.
The anonymous writer, by the username u/Xoxo76757, explained that she and her husband of nine months live in a different town from his parents and one Friday his mum showed up out of nowhere.
It appears it wasn’t so much the unexpected visit that left the Redditor stunned – it’s what followed afterwards.
When it was time to go to bed, the mother-in-law, who the author of the post described as having no respect to anyone’s privacy, requested that the couple let her sleep on their master bed.
Not just that but also lock the door as well ”because she explained she can’t feel comfortable enough to sleep without locking the door”.
”I found this bizzare but I politely declined and suggeted other options like the guest room, couch and air mattress but no she turned around and presented these options to me [sic].”
Even though the husband appeared to be willing to please his mum’s request, the woman was a bit more stern and refused to let her sleep in their bedroom.
”This initiated an argument between her and I.
”During the argument I pointed put how I didn’t want to be keot out of my room and away from my stuff but she lashed out at my husband saying “Don’t you just stand there! Say something!” [sic]
”She took it as in I was kicking her out and started crying which made my husband upset.”
By midnight, the woman told the readers, the mother-in-law had left – but the night didn’t end there, as her husband blew up saying she had disrespected his mum ”who was a GUEST at our house and treated her poorly”.

He then went on to argue that it’s their bedroom not just hers and then booked a room in the same hotel his mum had just dashed to.
”The next day she went home and told the family who berated me calling my behavior towards MIL abhorrent and loathsome, now my husband is complaining about how I keep trying to ruin his relationship with his family and push them away.”
Unanimously voted as NTA (Not the A**hole), the Redditor received support from fellow users, who were shocked at the situation.
”Not to mention she was a GUEST….GUESTS STAY IN THE GUEST ROOM, THATS WHY THEY EXIST!!!! [sic]
”OP (Original Poster) if you don’t get out now, worse things are going to happen I can promise you that,” the user warned.
”Girl I would get a divorce asap, these kind of relationships never last for a long time,” a second agreed.
”He is not able to see the disrespect his mother is giving BOTH of you guys.”
Someone else thought: ”She clearly had ulterior motives here, there is every chance she planned to snoop.”
