Lies are usually always a bad idea.
Yes, there are some little white lie exceptions when you’re trying not to hurt someone, but the big whoppers always seem to catch up with folks.
And this woman is pretty mad about a lie her husband told her.
But now she wonders if she overreacted…
Let’s take a look…
AITA for blowing up at my husband for lying to me about my sister and her baby leaving when he actually kicked her out?
“My sister (20) got out of a terrible relationship and moved in with me and my husband and brought her 5 months old son, she’s dealing with a handful of issues from ppd to depression. I asked my husband if he’d be okay with her moving in and he said absolutely, not just this but he was the one who picked her/brought her home.
She stayed for 2 weeks and helped around the house, My husband started complaining about the baby crying but a newborn is expected to cry especially at night. He said it causes him stress although I suggested he put on earbuds. He suddenly told me to forget it and so I did.
Last week, I had to go out of town to attend a friend’s funeral without my husband, He said he wanted to stay with my sister to make sure she’s okay. I returned home the next day and didn’t find her or her baby home. My husband said she contacted a friend in another town and wanted to move with them and left that morning, he handed me a letter he claimed was from her.
This felt so odd…especially after reading the letter, I called her phone many many times but turned out my husband found it and said she must’ve left it behind. I was worried I had no means of contacting her to make sure she was okay, I contacted relatives but they knew nothing.
Yesterday, I got a call from an unknown number and it was her, we talked and she told me that she didn’t leave on her own but my husband kicked her out after telling her that she was no longer welcome, and she needed to take responsibility for her decisions.
I was in shock as she explained that she’s not with a friend but at a shelter and she has no money. I waited til he got home and I blew up at him, he admitted he faked the letter an hid her phone then argued that it’s his house to and he has a say, but he shouldn’t have lied to me about my sister and causing her to be homeless. I he said I was being unfair and wrong to lash out at him for wanting peace in his home.
I went upstairs and refused to argue anymore. I told him I’m going to pick her up tomorrow and he said he’d change the locks while I’m gone and I won’t be allowed to bring her home.
I’m thinking of going to a hotel but he kept saying that I’m letting my sister affect our lives by prioritizing her but there’s a baby involved, my nephew and I can’t leave him homeless. I get that it’s house too but I don’t see why he’s so against her staying.”
And here’s what people on Reddit had to say.
This person said she’s NTA and that her husband sounds like a dangerous man.
And this individual agreed and said she needs to get a lawyer ASAP.
And this Reddit user said that this guy is a threat and should be taken seriously.
