When we fantasize about getting married, we imagine having a good time with our loved ones and dedicating the rest of our lives to our spouses. That’s not the case, though. Getting married, it’s been said, is like getting married to the entire family. Those words have a lot of truth to them, and we agree with them as well. Likewise, we came across a story of a 34-year-old woman who got married a year ago and said “I Do”. She shares her experience of what it feels like to have an irritating mother-in-law.
She stated in one of the posts on Reddit, r/AITA: “My husband and I purchased a new house recently. My MIL kept pushing to get an emergency key, she promised that she would only use it in an emergency,” Despite her promises, the OP’s mother-in-law turned out to be a snoop who had already entered their home twice. What an intruder!
What happens next is even more shocking! The OP gave her mother-in-law a fake key because of her constant requests. It was as if she did not realize that she was wrong and that being snoopy is not something everybody should be doing! Unfortunately, a Christmas meal that resulted in a massive rage and yet another family crisis was the result of her snoopy deeds.
