Husband Moves Holiday Dates To Avoid Family

A mum-of-two has sparked a heated debate online after revealing that her husband rebooked their family holiday to avoid going away with her mother and siblings.

She asked Mumsnet users how they would react if their partner had gone to such lengths to snub his in-laws.

Many commenters argued that the woman’s husband was in the right and claimed they would be just as angry as him if faced with the situation.

One person said: ‘YABU (you are being unreasonable) and I am completely with your DH (dear husband) on this. Your mum was a CF (cheeky ******) doing this without getting agreement from both of you.

‘If you want a big family holiday, you and everyone involved need to plan it together and make sure everyone is on board with it.’

Another wrote: ‘YABVVU (you are being very unreasonable) and it’s your manipulative mother you should be angry with.

‘Well done to you DH for not being railroaded by your mother, he knows how manipulative your mother is unlike yourself who seems to conditioned to it.’

A third added: ‘I’m sorry but I’m with your partner on this, I’d be furious about not being asked it was okay. Imagine if your in-laws had booked on without asking first!’

Others defended the mother-in-law and said the husband had overreacted by moving the holiday dates without discussing.

One user wrote: ‘Your mum should have checked first but that was an nasty thing to do. I don’t understand why he couldn’t have just had a chat with your mum and been honest, ‘MIL (mother-in-law) I really waned some time alone with OP and the kids so I’d prefer it if you asked.

‘However now you’ve booked it’s fine but I’d like some quality time with them and go on trips etc as planned’
