A few months ago, a freak accident claimed OP’s home, leaving her family of four in devastation. Their life took a terrifying turn when, during a school recital, a neighbor broke the news of the ongoing fire. The loss was severe, and rebuilding the house was beyond their means. She thought they could turn to her mother-in-law for help…but she thought wrong.
Hopes Shattered by Heartless MIL
In the midst of this crisis, OP found herself battling an unexpected enemy: her mother-in-law.
Despite ten tumultuous years of their relationship, OP had naively hoped for MIL’s support.
After all, OP was the mother of her grandsons and wife to her son.
But she was mistaken.
Her Ruthless Exclusion
In the immediate aftermath, they needed a temporary place to stay. It seemed logical to seek shelter at MIL’s home.
But what they encountered was a shocking refusal. While MIL was okay with her son and grandsons, she explicitly excluded OP, arguing that she wasn’t “true family.”
An Outrageous Offer
Their first night was spent in their car, followed by motel arrangements the next day.
The MIL then “graciously” offered to let OP to stay in her garage.
The offer was rejected and MIL was chastised for her disrespect, only to respond with anger and the galling claim that she was being generous.
She Did What!?
Things took a turn for the worse when MIL began defaming OP, claiming that OP’s grudges were causing family division.
She even lodged a false complaint alleging that OP had intentionally started the fire!
Although OP was cleared of all allegations, the accusation took an emotional toll.
Painful Losses, Heartless Remarks, and a Stolen Console
MIL’s insensitivity continued as she mocked their loss and belittled the value of their destroyed possessions.
OP mourned over irreplaceable heirlooms and childhood mementos of her sons.
Adding insult to injury, MIL even lied about a gaming console that was left at her place, later admitting she gave it away.
The Final Straw
The continuous onslaught eventually led to a family decision: they went No Contact with the MIL.
As they moved to their new place, they withheld their address, issuing an ultimatum to other family members.
In OP’s words, if MIL couldn’t be there during their worst, she didn’t deserve their best.
