This Redditor doesn’t want her brother-in-law (BIL) to enter her house due to his homophobic comments. Here’s the full story.
Difficult to Live With
Anna, a 22-year-old woman, shared how she had lived with her sister and BIL for three years before moving out two years ago. Throughout her stay, tensions ran high, and conflicts seemed inevitable.
The BIL, harboring resentment towards Anna’s presence, treated her pets poorly and constantly blamed her for the deteriorating state of his marriage and the messy condition of the house. However, Anna always kept her room tidy and stayed in her room most of the time.
The heart of the issue lay in the stark contrast between Anna’s worldview and her BIL’s staunch Christian beliefs.
Very Different Beliefs
As Anna embraced beliefs rooted in human rights and inclusivity, her BIL exhibited behaviors and expressed views that aligned with negative stereotypes.
Anna is dating a woman and her BIL had shown disrespect towards her same-sex relationship in the past. Although he offered an insincere apology, it was mainly due to the pressure from his wife.
Currently, Anna has purchased her own house, and she doesn’t want her BIL on her property.
Banned From the House
Although other family members shared similar religious beliefs and held negative views about her relationship, it was the personal history and ongoing tensions with her BIL that made her make the decision.
The story took a turn when Anna’s sister told her she is coming down to visit the city but Anna said to her that her husband is not invited to her house.
Her sister was disappointed about it but Anna remained resolute in maintaining her boundaries.
While some family members understood Anna’s reservations about having her BIL around, others responded dismissively and said that Anna was wrong for her decision.
Not Welcome as a Guest
She took to Reddit to ask whether she was in the wrong for her decision and several comments came in support of Anna.
One Reddit user wrote, “Someone who is disrespectful towards you and your partner is understandably not welcome as a guest in your home. It is tough distancing yourself from toxic family members, best of luck.”
Another Redditor commented, “NTA here. Totally valid reasons to not want to be around this person. They should do a hotel; I don’t really like staying at friends’ houses because I’m always worried I’ll be a nuisance. This person is a nuisance, there’s no reason to allow him to stay at your place when he makes you uncomfortable.”
