After everyone had gone home, the woman started getting lots of texts from her husband’s family telling her she was a terrible person for saying what she had said, and for defending the young brother’s actions.

Did She Do the Right Thing?

Was the woman right to step in and let the man know what she thought, or should she have stayed quiet and let them fight it out?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “You were reacting to the brother’s comment, not trying to insult his new wife. When you realized how it came across, you apologized.”

Another said, “He did it at yours; he should be okay with others doing the same he did to them.”
