About 11 months ago, a woman claims she was banished from her mother-in-law’s house after a heated argument. Now she has had a baby, and her husband is dying for his mother to meet their grandchild.
However, the new mom says she doesn’t want her mother-in-law to meet her three-month-old son until she gets her ban lifted.
According to this woman, the initial altercation arose after her mother-in-law’s husband asked her a question that she thought was rhetorical. When she didn’t answer, he became “upset” and demanded that she answer.
After begging him not to speak to her like that, the mother-in-law threw her out of the house, telling her that she “disrespected her husband and can never go back.”

To Reddit, the poster bearing the username u/According-Ice-1387, explained, she didn’t answer as she really didn’t have an answer to the question and didn’t understand how it had come to this point.
The poster continued, “I feel like if she hates me that much, she has nothing to do with being around my child. I said she can’t come over but if she would like to have a birthday dinner on her upcoming birthday then we could all go to her house which means she would have to let me in.
“He spoke to the mother-in-law and she refused. I bluntly told my mother-in-law that she can either meet the baby or let me in the house.
“My mother-in-law said she doesn’t allow herself to be manipulated and is fine not meeting him, but her son would be happy to meet him with us.”
The poster refused, considering the discussion closed. However, her husband has been pushing since then, saying she is “cruel”.
Her mother-in-law has said that she can only return if she answers the above question and apologizes for ignoring her husband.
Although the posterist feels this issue strongly, she wonders if she should just drop it and move on.
Another Reddit user wrote: “She’s the one putting up a barrier between herself and her grandkids, not you. I understand why your husband is upset, but this is absolutely a hill to die for. If they don’t respect you, they won’t spend time with your child.”
Another advised: “Hold on. It’s ridiculous that she gets so extreme that she bans you from her house. Now she wants preferential treatment. Don’t give up and make sure your husband supports you.”
