Hello internet friends! We're back again to judge someone's life choices, and I love that for us. Most recently, we've been considering real-life stories from the popular subreddit page "Am I the Asshole," where redditors ask strangers whether or not they handled a situation correctly.

Today's issue centers around a woman who recently moved into a new house with her husband, and her mother-in-law who decided to decorate with photos of her husband's ex.

Here's the story according to the wife, u/alt_account_ad: "My husband (30) and I (31) have just bought our first house together; we're loving it, and we're excited to decorate it together. Unfortunately my husband travels a lot for work, and we've already had new furniture orders arrive, but I couldn't do it all myself. My MIL (mother-in-law) offered to help and I agreed."

"Yesterday, I got back from work at 8 p.m. and was shocked to see one of the walls was full of framed pictures that MIL put there... Then I saw the biggest framed picture, and it's him and his ex on their wedding day. (Context: MIL 'adores' my husband's ex; she brings her up all the time and reminisces about the past years with her. Not only that but she includes her in events and holidays, which caused issues between us.)"

"I told her to take it down in that instance, but she got defensive and said, 'This is part of Derek's life, and you can not erase it.' Then went on about how many hours she spent working on this wall and how I should try to be a little bit more appreciative. I lost my cool and flipped out on her; I took a chair and removed the picture."

As the argument heats up, the wife tells her mother-in-law to either take the photo with her, or that she'll throw it out. In return, her mother-in-law leaves and begins texting the wife about how "jealous," "bitter," and "controlling" she is. The wife's response? Banning her mother-in-law from ever coming back to her and her husband's home.
