“Mother In Law Slapped My Husband When He Told Her I Was Pregnant”
Me 26F and my husband 32M been married for three years, And my mother in law is a entitled b****, She is a literal living nightmare.
I’ve made it clear since day one that I had no interest playing her stupid games so I tried to stay away from her for as long as I could.
And God, It’s been difficult for me to ignore her nasty comments and her manipulative attitude towards me.
She obviously don’t like me and can’t accept the fact that her son chose me to be his partner. My husband is a Leo, he’s a good man with a good heart, Unlike his toxic mother who tried to stick her nose in our business for a very long time.
She’s done a number of awful awful things for instance:
- When I met her, she came up with a new name for me cause she simply “didn’t” like my name.
- She “accidentally” ripped my wedding dress one week before the wedding so we had to get another in a very short time.
- Constantly asked if we were trying for a kid, and said that we “should” let her know beforehand. WTF?
- Suggested adoption for us more times than I can remember, Saying how wonderful it is to give a good life for a kid (Neither her nor anyone in the family was an adoptive parent) My response was “Sure, I’d definitely consider, But husband & I really want kids on our own”. She didn’t like that at all.
- Whenever I get sick, or go see a doctor, She’d say “well, I hope it won’t be a happy surprise, you know how much I hate surprises”. “She meant that I better not surprise her and tell her I was pregnant”
Two weeks ago, I told my husband That I was pregnant. He was so happy and excited, He told me he wanted to tell his family, I told him maybe we should wait for some time. But he couldn’t contain himself, He went to mother in law’s house to give her the news, when she heard her face turned red, asked him why he hadn’t told her earlier, Husband thought nothing if it, being the man with good intentions here, She slapped him in the face like he was 12 years old, and told him “how dare you LIE to me and keep me in the dark all this time! (Long time???). Then told my husband That God must be angry with him for him to end up with having a baby with someone like me.
She was going nuts over the fact that (and according to her) her son will forever be “attached” to me with this baby.
She told him she felt betrayed, and kicked him out of her house and told him to not come back til things are back to how she “wanted em to be” she meant Me getting abortion.
I remember my husband went straight to his shift after leaving her house, he did not sound okay on the phone and it sounded as if he was crying or something. I didn’t know what his mom said that day, but he sorta just broke down and told me everything.
He was feeling hurt his mom was upset with the news and didn’t want anything to do with the baby, even (indirectly)suggested abortion.
He probably expected a different reaction from her, though her awful behavior has been there the whole time, he just couldn’t see it.
She ruined it for him, instead of being happy for him to become a dad she downright squashed it. And made him feel bad.
