Before the woman and her husband got married, the latter’s parents minimized her brother-in-law’s issues. She said, “His family would tell me that he usually kept to himself and stayed in his room most of the day.”

The woman never actually saw the brother. In fact, the family went out of their way to hide him from her.

The woman was planning on moving into her husband’s parents’ house after the wedding. It would give them time to save up for their own home.

Two days before the wedding, the woman was finally ‘allowed’ to meet her husband’s brother. It was quite a shock.

The woman said, “He spends a good chunk of the day screaming loudly and banging on doors and walls as hard as humanly possible, no matter what time of day.”

After she moved in, she was often woken up at all times of the night because her brother-in-law was banging doors and hitting walls.

He was also physically violent. He threw things around and lashed out at anyone who went near him.

After a few months, the woman and her husband moved out into their own place, and she couldn’t help but feel relieved to be in a safe place that was peaceful and quiet.

He made a suggestion

But before long, the woman’s husband broached the subject of his brother and what would happen when his parents couldn’t take care of him anymore.

He wanted him to move in

The woman said, “He brought up his plan to have him move in.” He didn’t trust anyone but family to take care of his brother, so he didn’t want him to go into a care home.

It wasn’t far off

The man’s parents were getting old, and although the woman thought it was lovely that her husband took such great care of his brother, the last thing she wanted was for him to live with them.

They were planning children

The biggest issue was that the couple planned to start a family, and the woman was worried that her brother-in-law’s violent outbursts would endanger them.

She suggested paying

Instead of having the brother move in, the woman suggested they pay to get him excellent care somewhere else, but her husband said no.

He called her selfish

The woman said, “He called me selfish and said his brother will have nowhere else to go if we don’t step up. I get very nervous bringing up the topic.”

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to say her husband’s brother couldn’t move in, or did she have a good point about his violence being bad for their future children?

The internet responded

One person said, “Run. The rest of your life will be a living hell if you don’t. You can’t risk exposing little ones to this.”

Another person commented, “There is a reason they hid him from you. Your husband knew his brother’s condition could be a dealbreaker.”
