Wife Wants To Go To SIL's Baby Shower Even Though Her Husband Won't Be Attending Because Of A Fight
We are back here with a WIBTA post from Reddit where someone is looking for advice on whether or not they will be in the wrong for doing something. Sometimes we like to ask the internet for advice on our situations because we don't really want to ask anyone close to us due to bias.
This is exactly where threads like this one and the AITA thread will help people achieve those goals. Ultimately, we love looking into these posts because it gives us a peek into their lives while also letting us see what people have to say in response to the situation.
In this particular post, we are looking into a wife who came to Reddit to ask if she WBTA if she attended her SIL's baby shower even though her husband and the SIL aren't on the best of terms. I think it's hard to establish boundaries within each relationship.
Ultimately, she asked and people in the comments definitely delivered. If you're wondering about what happened in this situation and want to know what people had to say then keep on reading as we dive into all the details on this situation.
You'll want to read all the comments and the whole post to get a good understanding of the perspective.
OP starts off her post explaining her situation with her husband, and his sister.
She goes into more detail on how her and her SIL have been close for a while so she wants to be supportive of her.
With this being said, she goes into a huge backstory of why her husband and her SIL don't really get along anymore.
This is when the huge news dropped and everyone really had an opinion to say on the soon to be parents.
Then they got invited to the baby shower, but of course her husband refused to go, however she wants to attend.
He told her that she can't go because then that's technically taking her side and not his after their argument.
So really she wants to know if she'll be TA if she goes to the baby shower without her husband despite his wants.
The first comment is saying that she is NTA and that she should just go be there for Mandy.
I think all of them know it and that's probably why he doesn't want to attend because he knows what he did was wrong.
We love this comment because she does have a right to her relationship with Mandy outside of her husband.
Ultimately, he is trying to put her in the middle of an argument that is between the two of them and has no concern with OP.
Everyone basically had the same idea of saying OP is NTA and that she should go support her friend despite their argument. She was not involved in the argument anyway, but her husband is the one putting her in the middle and making her pick a side.
