“She Logged Into My Husband’s Facebook Account”: MIL Announces Daughter-In-Law’s Pregnancy, Is Hurt When She Gets Yelled At

Secrets have a way of spreading. It takes only one set of loose lips for a secret to turn into gossip. Especially if you reveal a secret to someone and then remind them to not tell anyone else. That’s just asking for trouble, though it hardly excuses the blabbermouth from not respecting you and spreading the sensitive information further.

One redditor, a married 23-year-old, opened up about some fiery family drama with her mother-in-law, as well as her husband. She explained how she wanted to keep the fact that she got pregnant a secret until she’s come to a decision. However, her mother-in-law disregarded any sense of privacy and took this decision out of her hands. The redditor got incredibly angry at her and she’s now asking the AITA community for a verdict on who was in the wrong here.

Some people have no sense of privacy or boundaries, and are quick to break your trust

There were two main issues with this whole situation. First of all, the husband broke his wife’s trust and told his mother about the pregnancy even though his partner asked him not to tell anyone at all.

And secondly, the mother-in-law decided to tell everyone about the pregnancy while pretending to be her son, by using his Facebook account. It seems like it will be very difficult to rebuild trust in both of these cases, and it will take a lot of time.

The majority of redditors who read the story were on the pregnant woman’s side. They thought that it was the husband and his mother who were to blame, 100%. They repeatedly went against the OP’s wishes and trampled over her feelings. What’s more, they put pressure on her to keep the baby, even though she was clear that she was still considering all of her options.

Relationship and self-love coach Alex Scot previously explained to Bored Panda how boundaries work. She suggested that the closer someone is to you, the more flexible those boundaries should be. Nonetheless, these boundaries have to exist and you have to enforce them, whether we’re talking about coworkers, friends, or in this case, family.

“Without them [boundaries], we live our lives at the expense of ourselves. The mindset for many when it comes to setting boundaries is that they feel selfish, or that they aren’t being a good partner when they implement them, so they avoid doing it altogether,” she told us.

“This only causes resentment to build and overwhelm to set in both within the individual and the relationship as a whole. Boundaries are there for us to be able to take care of and to protect ourselves so that we can show up and operate within our lives as successfully as possible.”

She added that strict boundaries are usually unsustainable in relationships, as there’s a need for compromise in certain situations.

Here’s what some redditors had to say about the situation, and the warnings they gave the OP
