Today, after years of bad blood, my husband decided to invite his parents to dinner. After making rude remarks about my pregnancy, his dad eventually muttered that I'm a slut. My husband punched him, his wife called the police, and now I'm all alone while he sits in a jail cell for battery. FML

Agree. I went through something similar but it was my parents being arseholes to my now husband of 22years... I didn't speak to them for years. Is all good now. We just had to stand up to them; together.

I have anger problems sometimes. So --I'm not preaching-- but I think a brutal session of barking profanities and good old fashioned forced removal would have sufficed.

Uuhhh, you obviously have never seen boxing or UFC have you? Or someone get punched in the nose and get a nose bleed? You didn't think to much before you posted did you?

Sure, every family has their ups and downs, but that doesn't mean they can't get along. OP's in-laws are simply a worse-case. And the wham! to the face wasn't a result of the value of family declining, but of the dad being a dick

I wish my fiancé would stand up to his parents. He doesn't do anything when they talk bad about me. At least your husband cares more about you than their stupid opinions, OP. Sucks that he got sent to jail though. He should have just made them leave.


101 & 112 - both of you mentioned "in-law" in your comments, but Op's parents were the parents in the FML. Op's father clearly didn't approve from the start of their relationship, it wasn't just another one of those 'damn parent in-laws'.

I wonder why society has to be such retards?
I can obviously tell by how fucking dumb you all are. And obviously lack a sense of humor and common knowledge of sarcasm

Actually, upon further consideration, I think you were more correct. Unless his dad re-married at an early age for OP's husband, then his stepmom wouldn't be much of a mother to him.

Since this happened in your own home, I wonder if you could save him by saying you told them to leave and they wouldn't? At that point it becomes trespassing on their part and you have legal rights to remove them. Hell, if someone can get injured while robbing you, then sue you and win, anything is possible.

Actually, ops husband can't get in trouble here. There is a clause in US law about fighting words. If someone is provoked enough, they are legally allowed to fight them without charges.

Here, you sit until you can see a judge for a felony, but not necessarily a misdemeanor. Depends what he was charged with and UK's rules on it as to whether that could even be a possibility.

Pretty sure he heard his father mutter that, hence why he punched him.

It's ok though, you don't have to socialise with your extended family.

Yeah, but the wife is the one who called the cops on OP'S husband. You get invited over for dinner, act an ass, then call the cops on your son(in-law) for retaliating like a man? That deserves at least one strike.
