60-Year-Old Mother Humiliates Son In Front Of His Friends Because He Wouldn’t Do Any Chores To Help His Wife Out At Home.
It’s rare and beautiful when there’s an amazing bond between the mother in law and daughter in law. Here is a fantastic story where a mother in law acted truly like a mother and treated her daughter in law like a daughter. She stood up for her daughter in law towards her son’s bad behavior. Kudos to the MIL for standing for the right. Remember a marriage is successful when there is love and respect. Hope her son starts working honestly in his relationship as a husband and father. Family comes first. (This story was sent to us by Barbara).
Here’s the important background: my daughter in law (32) and son (33) have 3 children aged 3 years 2 years and 4 months. He convinced her to be a stay at home mom and sell her business by telling her how good of a childhood he had and how happy my marriage was without telling her (which I today found out) that our arrangement was everything before 9am and After 5pm was split 50/50, Sunday was my day off and I was brought out twice a week.
On to the story- on my last visit I noticed my daughter in law was struggling mentally so I, my sister (55f) and her girlfriend (53) pulled our money together and paid for a spa weekend for them while we’d babysit the kids for her birthday last weekend.
I was preparing on Thursday evening for the kids to arrive when my dil rang me holding back tears saying they’d won’t be going because my sons friend came to town and he said he wanted to spend the weekend with his friends catching up. I pressed her a little and I’m talking a little about her situation, she came clean about him doing no chores, no date nights and her basically doing all of the child care because “that’s what stay at home moms do”
I was honestly disgusted. I convinced her to drop me off the kids and bring a friend to the spa I even dipped into my savings to give her €500 to buy herself something nice. When she dropped me off the kids I begged her to tell me were son was after 5 minutes she told me the bar. She left for the spa while I left for the bar (she knew I was going there and knew my sister/my sister in law were taking care of the kids)
I went to the bar were he and his friends were, I sat down next to the Group and asked my son “did i fail you as a mother or was it your father because we both thought your partner comes before your silly drunk friends”. I humiliated him and got myself banned from a bar
My dil said she will be taking the kids to her parents when she gets back tomorrow and my son is calling me for humiliating him/ sticking my nose in his marriage Maybe I should have stayed out i don’t know.
What do you guys think?
