Her Brother-In-Law Told Her That His Trashy Girlfriend Was Badmouthing Her Behind Her Back, but When She Clapped Back, He Got Mad and Stormed Out

A woman recently went online to ask if she’d been wrong to criticize his brother-in-law’s girlfriend to his face. Here’s what happened

They were settled

“I’ve been with my partner for two years,” the 28-year-old began. “We have a good relationship, we’re both in steady jobs, and we own a home.”

“My partner’s family is so welcoming and really makes me feel at ease. But this story relates to his brother, whom I’ll call Tom, and his girlfriend, whom I’ll call Alison. They’ve been together for three years, but they don’t live together. She has three children from a previous relationship.”

Except for Alison

The woman explained that Alison had always been jealous of her relationship and how well it was progressing compared to her own; she and Tom lived apart and weren’t engaged. He also refused to support her financially, even though she didn’t have a job.

The woman also revealed that her partner had told her early on that no one in the family could understand what Tom saw in Alison. She was proud of not working and claiming government benefits; she didn’t discipline her two oldest children (she’d had her first child at 15), and her kids were banned from her partner’s parents’ home because they were so badly behaved.

Despite this, the woman had always been civil toward Alison at family gatherings and had gone out of her way to ask about her children, etc.

They’d been fighting

The previous day, Tom had turned up at the woman’s house. He’d had a big argument with Alison and wanted someone to talk to.

The woman was shocked when she learned what had started the argument.

The Saturday before, there’d been a family party. One of the woman’s partner’s aunts had given the woman a big hug and started chatting with her.

Alison hadn’t liked this at all.

Alison had complained to Tom that his aunt was never that nice to her. She also said that everyone liked the woman more than her and that the woman not only made her feel inadequate, but she also sucked up to family members.

The woman had heard enough. She got angry and told Tom where Alison could stick her immature behavior. Tom was taken aback and got angry with the woman for criticizing his girlfriend.

The woman defended herself, saying that she wasn’t going to be made to feel bad because Alison had made terrible life choices. Tom left in anger and was refusing to return his brother’s calls.

Was she wrong?

Wanting a second opinion on whether she should have spoken her mind or not, the woman reached out to the online community for their thoughts.

The internet responded

The internet overwhelmingly backed the woman. “He was the one talking bad about his own girlfriend and saying how badly his girlfriend talks about you,” said one. “How did he expect you to react?”

“Tom wanted you to make him feel better about his choices and offer to talk to Alison,” suggested one. “He knows who the problem is but is either lazy or a coward and wanted you to fix things for him rather than have to be an adult.”
