Her brother’s wife recently left him, but at first, he didn’t say why. But it turned out that he had been abusing her. She left him because he was mistreating her oldest son from her previous marriage. They had four children together, with the youngest being a newborn.

When everyone found out the reason for the separation, she and her sister stopped talking to their brother. Their father and their other brother didn’t seem to care and blamed their brother’s wife, who left everything.

When her brother’s wife left, she took the kids to live with her own dad in a different state. A month later, she gave birth to their youngest child. When the brother’s mom found out, she was upset that her daughter-in-law didn’t contact her about the birth. She tried to call and message, but no one answered.

In August, the brother’s wife and the kids moved back to the city, so the kids could go to the same school. She and her brother had sorted out the child custody and child support. He could only see the kids under supervision for a few hours each week.

But since then, their mom has been smothering her sister-in-law. “It comes from a good place; she feels guilty about what her son did and wants to support SIL. She has been going to all the kids’ events/sports games, taking them out regularly, spoiling them with gifts (I think she spent close to $1000 on the 16 yr olds birthday), and inviting herself over to SILs house a lot,” she said.

Though her sister-in-law was thankful for the help, she thought the grandma’s presence was too much. She said she needed space and didn’t want to see her until spring break and afterwards, they would create boundaries in their relationship.

The mother got angry. “My mom was very upset and called my SIL ungrateful for everything she had done for her and that she would struggle as a single mom without her help,” she said. They argued for a while.

One user responded, “SIL is being very reasonable, considering the circumstances. Your mom clearly thinks that she can buy access to her grandkids. Support your SIL however you can, even if just by voicing your support.”

Another person said, “Your mother is reaping all at once things that took a lifetime to sow. I get that she’s overwhelmed, but SIL owes her nothing.”
