On August 6th, 2022, a Reddit user posted on the “AITA” subreddit about an incident involving her husband during a family vacation. She overheard him speaking to his family, revealing that she had been uninvited to the trip.

Last week, my husband’s family organized a vacation. Out of curiosity, I asked if I could join. My husband was hesitant, but I convinced him it would be a great opportunity to bond with his family. He agreed, and although his family was surprised to see me, they welcomed me.

On the third day of the vacation, the whole family was gathered at the outside table while I was preparing the fruit salad. As I started to approach them, I overheard my mother-in-law saying, ‘…did she have nowhere else to spend the weekend?’

Unaware that her mother-in-law was referring to her, the Redditor overheard her husband’s frustrated remark: “I KNOW!!!! And I didn’t want to bring her with me but what was I supposed to do?!!! You know how pushy she can get.”

Realizing they were discussing her, the Redditor felt devastated. “Throughout my stay, I cleaned, cooked, looked after the kids, and this is how they perceive me? As an inconvenience?” The Redditor was deeply shocked by the revelation.

Subsequently, she promptly purchased a ticket back home and boarded the first available plane. “He called and texted, but I only informed him that I had arrived home. Upon his return, he confronted me, labeling my actions as disrespectful and immature.”

“I explained that I overheard his conversation with his mother, but he insisted that I was at fault for eavesdropping. He maintained that his family would eventually accept me on their terms and urged me to stop insisting on being around them when they were not comfortable with it.”

The Redditor concluded, expressing, “Essentially, he placed the blame on me for joining the vacation initially. He conveyed that my decision to return home disappointed him and his family, leaving them with a negative impression of me.”
