She Told Her Mother-In-Law that Her Food Was No Good and Now Her Husband Is Furious with Her

A young woman recently got into hot water with her husbad and mother-in-law after she directly told her MIL that she didn’t like her food. Here’s what she had to say.

She’s from a Different Culture

Coming from different cultures, she and her husband had different habits and customs, some of which she found hard to adapt to. One of these was how they seasoned their food.

“To me, it’s just super bland, and the stuff they choose of food combinations just doesn’t seem to go together,” she said.

Her mother-in-law was especially fond of using mayonnaise in her recipes, even as the base for a tortilla pizza!

She Tried to Avoid Eating the Food

In order to avoid eating her mother-in-law’s food, the young woman would politely make up excuses whenever it was offered to her.

However, after inviting her mother-in-law to dinner, her MIL felt compelled to reciprocate the gesture. 

Despite the young woman’s insistence that it was unnecessary, her mother-in-law insisted.

“The next day, after the dinner we had together, she started making plans with my husband. When my husband brought it up to me, I told him I really didn’t want to go, to which he replied my mom’s food is not that bad, could you please just deal with it for one day?” the woman explained.

Pregnancy Made Her Sensitive

Ordinarily, she might have complied to maintain a good relationship with her mother-in-law. However, being pregnant in her first trimester, she felt especially nauseous and doubted she could keep the food down.

But even her family had found her mother-in-law’s cooking odd when she brought a pasta dish to a family gathering that tasted overwhelmingly of ketchup.

She Complained to Her Sisters

“I ended up venting to my sisters and mom about the issue, and they all gave me the advice to just be honest, and my mom even said that if I am not honest now, it’s something I’ll have to deal with for the rest of my life,” the woman said.

Taking their advice, she called her mother-in-law to explain her difficulty with eating her food due to pregnancy-related nausea. 

She even offered to teach her mother-in-law recipes from her homeland that she had previously enjoyed.

Unfortunately, her mother-in-law was offended. She vowed never to cook for her daughter-in-law again and called her ungrateful.

She also called her son to tell him about the conversation.

“My husband is really disappointed with me because he felt like I should’ve just pretended to keep the peace and is upset that now my MIL doesn’t even want to invite me over again,” the woman said.

She Sought Input from an Online Forum

One user said, “I mean, you called her up to tell her that her food sucks. You wouldn’t be offended if she did the same thing to you? If she was like “the food you make is really unfamiliar, and I honestly can’t stomach it at all” wouldn’t you be offended too? I would be.”

Another said, “Just say you’re nauseated from pregnancy, you’re full, move your food around your plate, slip it into a napkin, and stuff it in your purse to dump in an unmarked grave, whatever you need to do to not insult someone for no other reason than ‘ew I don’t like it.”
