My wife’s parents’ birthday turned into a real disaster for family relations

A Reddit user shared a dramatic story that tore family bonds apart during a family birthday party.

The family was shocked by a revelation during a celebration intended to honor the union within their in-laws.

The OP, a 28-year-old man, and his wife, a year older than him, attended a meeting that included the latter’s wealthy family and his own, which included only him and his 48-year-old mother, survivor of an abusive marriage.

When the OP’s wife revealed her suspicions about an inappropriate affair between her brother and her husband’s mother, the tranquility of the event was shattered.

My wife told me in a low voice during the party that she was absolutely certain that my mother was having an intimate relationship with her brother!

The OP revealed that “(She told me they both disappeared from the party) Honestly, I was shocked.”

The woman informed the OP that she had suspected for some time that her mother-in-law and brother were together, which led to an argument that exposed the alleged affair to everyone.

The discovery shocked everyone. The OP revealed that the OP’s mother and her brother-in-law, Ben, were found in a compromising situation, “half naked and quite drunk.”

The whirlwind of accusations that followed were mostly directed at the OP’s mother. His bathroom retreat appears to have overshadowed Ben’s role in the incident.

The wife’s family reacted in a unilateral and disappointing manner. The OP’s mother was heavily criticized by the wife’s mother, who called her a woman who “baited their son and had dirty sex with him.”

This one-sided reproach put the OP in a precarious position, as his wife demanded the eviction of her mother from the apartment next door, which she owns.

The story took another turn when Ben expressed a desire to move in with OP’s mother, which complicated the family discord. The OP then asked for advice on Reddit about this.

A Reddit user pointed out the responsibility of the OP’s mother and brother-in-law, noting that it’s normal for a family to protect its own member and worrying about the age difference and its impact on family expectations.

Another commented on the irrelevance of the age difference, defending the autonomy of those involved while criticizing the judgment of the family as a whole.

One commenter said the OP’s wife was the one at fault, saying, “She made it a point to go catch them in the act and make a big scene out of it.”

It didn’t have to happen this way. She could have faced them with complete peace of mind. It seems your wife is having issues with your mother.

“Consenting adults or not, if my mom started sleeping with one of my partner’s siblings […] I would be so angry and embarrassed by her,” another Redditor added.

If my partner’s mother had sex with my brother, it would send chills down my spine and be very upsetting.
