The wife had finally reached her limit with the constant mess and missing items caused by her husband's teenage sister's house parties.
She took matters into her own hands
She took matters into her own hands and purchased new locks for their home, hoping to prevent any future chaos. But her husband didn't agree with her approach, and changed the locks back behind her back, leading to a breakdown in trust.
New Hub for Family and Friends to Gather
Sharing on Reddit, a 30-year-old husband proudly his “beautiful” wife's love for serving others. They recently purchased a new home down the street from his family, and it's become a hub for his “sweet” 17-year-old sister and her friends to crash at.
Hospitality Becomes a Burden
The husband has noticed a change in his wife's easygoing nature lately, likely due to the mess left behind by his sister's friends. Specifically, the towels they've been leaving on the floor after swimming in the pool.
Wife Fed Up
After getting fed up with picking up after his sister's friends every day, her husband had no choice but to ask his sister to ensure the house is clean after they leave, and things have been much better ever since.
Missing Personal Items
In addition to the mess left behind by his sister's friends, the wife had also noticed that some of her personal items (including perfumes and clothes) were missing.
Husband Sides with Sister
Even though his wife suspected his sister of taking her missing items, the husband stood by his sibling and trusted her completely. "I just don't see her doing that," he writes.
They ultimately decided to replace the items and move on.
Sharing Homemade Treats
The wife had recently made a couple of pans of cinnamon rolls from scratch. She kept one pan for herself and her husband and baked another for a grieving coworker.
One Pan Is Already Enough
While the wife was at the gym and the husband was at work, his sister and her friends came over and ate the first pan of cinnamon rolls.
Hoping for more, they texted the wife asking for the second pan, but she refused to give it to them.
Disregarding the “No”
Despite the wife's refusal to give them the second pan of cinnamon rolls, the husband's sister and her friends went ahead and helped themselves to it.
Taking Matters Into Her Own Hands
This left the wife feeling “upset,” prompting her to purchase new locks for their home.
Upon the husband's return from work, the wife handed him a new key and explained that she no longer wanted anyone else to have access to their house.
Is Replacing the “Stolen” Treats A Good Enough Solution?
The husband tried to calm his upset wife by offering to replace the eaten cinnamon rolls with store-bought ones.
The wife remained upset and said that his sister had “lost the privilege” to enter their home when they were not there. “Replacing stolen items wasn’t ‘good enough’ anymore,” the husband explained.
The husband's mom called and asked if his sister could use their pool for a back-to-school party, he agreed, assuming his mom would be there to supervise.
However, their schedules conflicted, and the easiest solution was for him to change the locks back so they could come into the house.
“It Was A Mess”
Despite the husband assuming his mom would supervise, she didn't show up for his sister's pool party, and the wife was greeted with a mess from his sister's pool party when she returned home.
Frustrated by the mess, the wife sent her husband photos and called him an "A" for changing the locks without her consent, telling him that he “broke her trust.”
The husband, feeling uncertain about the situation, turned to the Reddit community for advice and asked if he was in the wrong for changing the locks without talking to his wife, pointing out that he had made efforts to resolve any conflicts between his wife and sister.
“YTA!!!!! WTF is wrong with you?”Your free-loading young sister and her 'crew' go into YOUR home and eat food, leave towels on the floor, and what not.....and you're ok with that because it's not YOU who's doing all the cleaning but your wife!” the top comment reads.
“You better grow up fast, and start CHOOSING your wife over your A..HOLE FAMILY or you're going to lose the best thing that ever happened to you.”
“Your Wife Sounds Like A Saint”
“Easy YTA,” agreed another commenter. Your wife tried. Even as her clothes got stolen, the house was left a mess making more work for her and the icing on the cake! Only to be scarfed down by careless teenagers using your home for a pool and free stuff.”
“I'd Rather Be Single”
Someone in the comments section humorously declared, “I'd rather be single in my own house with my 2 trays of cinnamon rolls than putting up with this sh.t.”
In a post update, the husband shared that his wife has given him a second chance under certain conditions, which include no family members visiting their home for a while, no family members borrowing their belongings, no one being allowed to have a key to their house, and the husband helping with the household chores, including cooking meals.
Why Is Sister-in-law Targeting Wife?
His wife is open to him seeing his sister but only if they all attend counseling to understand why the sister has been targeting her. The husband acknowledges that this has been a difficult situation and his wife doesn't want to cause more issues, but she simply can't trust his sister and can't have her using their belongings.
