Husband Bans Mother-In-Law From Wife’s Pregnancy Appointments Because She Doesn’t Like Him

Pregnancy may be a wonderful time for the entire family, including the expectant mother, her partner, and even their close or extended relatives. Regrettably, this isn’t always the reality. One man in this story shared that his mother-in-law is so controlling and hostile toward him that he forbids her from accompanying him and his wife (the woman’s daughter) to prenatal visits. Read the story and let us know how you would handle the situation.

My wife and I are high school sweethearts and have been married for 3 years now. We recently found out we are having our first child and we are so excited!

My mother in law has always been extremely controlling of her daughter. One example is she would invite boys over to the house that she wanted to date her daughter even when my wife and I were already dating. While we were dating (for 4 years), my now wife got home late – she was living with her parents at the time – and her ex boyfriend was waiting for her. My MIL wanted her to dump me and continue dating her ex.

Fast forward some years and we are now happily married but my MIL has always hated me for taking her daughter from her and has made our lives pretty miserable since. Once we told her we were pregnant, she immediately asked for the schedule of doctor appointments so that she could take off work and be at them. She insists that it is normal for the mother of the pregnant woman to go to these appointments. We have continued to tell her that we feel as though this should be a special moment for the two of us and we would not like her to go to these appointments. In turn she continues to call and pester us about how we have taken what is supposed to be one of the happiest times of her life away from her and so forth.

I’m afraid I only see this situation getting worse. Am I Wrong for not letting my MIL go to our pregnancy appointments?
