The internet has defended a woman for straying while having dinner with her future in-laws.
In a now-deleted post on Reddit’s r/AmITheA** forum, a woman shared her story with the “AITA” community to see if she was wrong. The viral post garnered 4,000 upvotes and 650 comments.
The Redditor briefly explained that she will be marrying her boyfriend of five years in the fall. She also claimed that she had a very close relationship with her parents as she and her future in-laws had “little arguments” over things including money. Even though Redditor and her boyfriend both like to travel, they blame her and not her son for the money they spend.
Do you think your in-laws can be “toxic”? According to Fatherly, some signs to look out for include your in-laws being “too dramatic” about things and having “controlling” tendencies. Toxic in-laws often have trouble respecting boundaries and are inconsistent with their tempers.
He reassured readers that they save a lot of money, have good jobs and own an apartment.
One day, the Reddit user and her boyfriend were cooking at her parents’ house. For the meal they were preparing, they were buying expensive ingredients.
He wrote: ‘His parents came in and started criticizing us for buying him, then they turned on me and called me irresponsible. I told them to mind their own business and they left.”
“My fiancé texted me saying it was rude of me to leave. He came home several hours later and said that although he disagreed with his parents, he would side with them and not respond to keep the peace.
“I was really shocked by this because for me, your new family takes precedence over your old family, and I need to know that my future husband has my back no matter what. I told him that we were putting the organization of the wedding on hold, which upset him and he says that I am exaggerating, ”he concluded.
Other members of the Reddit community were quick to defend the woman in the comments.
“Ask him why ‘keeping the peace’ with them means ruining the peace with you, and why is that okay with him? Why should you be okay with that? [Not the A**hole]“U/zldapnwhl received the top review with over 9,000 positive ratings.
“It’s not an overreaction. It seems his parents are nosy and judgmental and he told you he would support them every time. [Not the A**hole]“Added u/mdthomas.

“[Not the A**hole]. His parents treat you like children and he is happy to let it. He can’t be a good husband if he’s too busy being a good son,” u/Narrow_Map4950 exclaimed.
“You saw your future if you married her,” u/CharlesMuskrat said.
“[Not the A**hole]and that’s a red flag,” u/circusmonster4 warned.
