Relationship with in-laws is always rocky at best.
I am not saying that it is always like this but more times than not, in-laws aren’t usually hospitable when it comes to treating their child’s partner. I don’t know why this is but it seems like they hold some sort of a grudge against anyone who marries their kid. Perhaps it is because they think the person doesn’t deserve them or maybe it is because they feel neglected, whatever the reason may be, these kinds of stories are dime a dozen.
If you couldn’t already tell by the title, today’s story is straight out of Reddit where this guy asked Reddit commenters to weigh in on whether he was in the wrong for wanting to keep his dog in the AC even when his father-in-law to angry with him. That is not all as you need to understand the context behind how or why this happened in the first place. And to understand that you need to scroll below to read the full story for yourself.
The couple was going to move to another house when his wife’s family offered to let them live with at their house.
He was a bit wary at first as his relationship with his Father-in-law isn’t great but his wife assured him that everything would be fine.
So he moved in but soon after problems started rearing their head and it was all because of his husky.
His Father-in-law was quick to point out that he was wasting electricity because of his dog and an argument ensued.
He offered to pay for the bill but his wife agreed that he was in the wrong.
Maybe it is just me since no one in the comments mentioned this but the guy does seem to be mentioning his wealth a whole lot. And that kind of bragging would rub anyone the wrong way. However, I do think the Father-in-law is completely in the wrong as his daughter’s husband offered to pay the bill as well so it isn’t as if he didn’t offer a solution. And the doggo is sued to cold environments so this seems like a normal thing to do.
To no one’s surprise, people were by his side in the comments.
To be fair, he is only taking care of his dog and what else is he supposed to do?
It is not as if he didn’t offer a solution.
It is clear that the father-in-law is just trying to find an excuse to hate this guy and this is his newest tactic. I don’t know what happened between them in the past but this living arrangement isn’t going to work out. And the wife needs to either mediate between them or let it go altogether.
This comment sums up everything perfectly.
