A Man’s Mother Invites Herself To Stay With Him And His Wife After The Birth Of Their First Child, But The Couple Wanted Their Own Privacy, Leading To Conflict

In preparation for the birth of their first child, the man and his wife had made detailed plans, but his mother took it upon herself to arrange to stay with them. However, the couple wanted their own space – leading to tensions. Here is what the man had to say:

The man said, “My wife and I are having our first child and are set for an induction date next week. We told close family and, obviously, my mother of the date. We are unsure of our plans for the day of, etc…”

But his mother decided to invite herself to stay over at the couple’s home not only on the night of the induction, but also for the following night! She had also made arrangements to drop off his ill grandmother at his sister’s house, something the man had been unaware of until recently.

The man said, “I told my mother that we don’t want anyone staying at our home any of the days from Day 1 – for the first week or so. We want to have our own space to come freely from and to the house without any pressure.”

In response to his mother’s plans, the couple decided to firmly assert their boundaries. They communicated to her that they wanted their privacy during the crucial first week after the child’s birth. Their intentions were clear: they wished to return home swiftly following the induction, free from any houseguests or additional stresses.

Regrettably, his mother did not receive this news with understanding. Instead, she felt hurt and rejected, perceiving her child as treating her as an “add-on” during this important period.

Family Members Got Involved

The man said, “Her partner (not my father) has yelled at me on the phone to understand what my mother is saying, but I am not backing down.”

As the induction date loomed just one week away, tensions continued to rise. The man found himself facing not only the prospect of welcoming his child but also dealing with his family’s increasingly strained relationships.

In an effort to find common ground, the man offered to pay for alternative accommodations for his mother for the two nights in question. He hoped this gesture would alleviate tensions while still allowing them the space they desired during this significant time in their lives.

The man was left questioning if he had acted unreasonably in wanting privacy following his child’s birth or if he was well within his rights to prioritize their needs during this crucial time.

The Internet Responded

One person said, “You aren’t in the wrong. Also, if your grandmother is sick and your mom has been around her, you don’t want her around your house getting your newborn sick.”

Another person commented, “Your mom is making this all about her feelings. This time, it’s about your wife’s feelings first, then yours. She needs to get over herself. Congratulations on the baby, and fingers crossed for smooth labor!”

A 56-year-old father was happy to pay for his daughter’s wedding until she refused to invite two out of four siblings.
