I don't know if you also get mad if your wife or husband does what my friend's wife did to him. But for sure I myself will get really upset and mad. According to my friend the family of their daughter-in-law dropped by their house yesterday afternoon. My friend thought they were just visiting. My friend entertained them while his wife was upstairs. According to my friend he was just wearing shorts and t-shirt while the visitors were dressed like going to a party. After half an hour or so my friend's wife came down all dressed up. According to my friend he was surprised and wondering why his wife got dressed up. Then the mother of their daughter-in-law got up and announced - "Okay, let's go!" According to my friend his wife approached him and whispered that it was their daughter-in-law's mother's birthday and they are inviting them for dinner. According to my friend he yelled loud enough for all to hear - - "They are inviting you not me!" According to my friend nobody told him anything about the birthday dinner. His wife did not mention to him about it. And when his wife mentioned it they were already leaving and my friend was still wearing shorts and t-shirt. Did it signify that they did not want him to attend the birthday dinner? According to my friend it was a sort of conspiracy! According to him when his wife came home, he gave him a real tongue-lashing . . and he's thinking of selling their home and eventually divorce! My friend said it was a slap on his face! Is he right?

@softbabe44 It was rude. . Anyway, the truth came out this afternoon. My friend and his wife had "honest-to-goodness" talk. It came out that the problem was the work of their daughter-in-law.

@antonbunot This kind of "conspiracy" is indeed a slap on your friend's face. Perhaps, your friend is not getting along with his daughter-in-law and her family. Taht could be. But how can his wife gang up on her hubby!!! And what is most surprising is that your friend is toying with the idea of seeking divorce just over this childish incident!!!

@Gabugs I am sure it was just the immediate but temporary effect of being hurt and angry. I just listened to him to bring out all his heartaches, disappointment, anger, and so on. I think he is okay now. I think his wife apologized and acknowledged she made a mistake. .

@antonbunot You have been a good friend by just listening and not sermonizing.

Trust and believe there is a reason he was not invited. H must act like some kind of asss behind closed doors when it comes to them. I would not be bothered to care if he were upset after I got home. would walk away and go do something to get that man off my mind. People don't just ignore you for no reason.

I know my friend - he is a nice guy. I believe their disrespectful daughter-in-law, whom my friend had an argument a few times, was the problem. I already met this woman; I tell you she is mean. Now let us say my friend's not that perfect; his wife should have told him that they invited her. As her husband, she should have told him about it a day before . . not when she was leaving for the party. That was what my friend wanted to have been done . . so that he had time to leave the house to avoid being embarrassed. One more thing, if I were the wife, I would have not accepted the invitation . . Am I right?

I cannot understand why your friend's wife behaved like it. She should have kept informed about she going to attend a birthday party. It was unfair on the part of your friend's wife.

I think the wife is being influenced by his daughter-in-law.

It sounds like a slap in the face all right. But I don't know the Rest of The Story. Maybe he always complains about those people and she thought she was doing him a favour by going with out him. My husband gets annoyed when I talk about spending time with some people; and he gets annoyed when I don't keep him informed. Well, I don't like informing him of things that set off his annoyance. I am not saying your friends are like us because I don't know. But I can see that there could be a reason a spouse doesn't like to discuss things with their wife/husband.

What I heard is my friend and their daughter-in-law don't get along well. But even then the parents should have at least invited my friend. And his wife should have informed him beforehand about the invitation. And that according to my friend if he was not invited, his wife should have not accepted the invitation. But according to my friend if informed beforehand he would have let his wife go while he would have just made some excuses not to attend. His point is why his wife chose to be part of the conspiracy?

@antonbunot I guess if my husband would make an excuse not to go anyway; I would see that as a reason to just make my own plans and leave him out of it. Not to annoy him, but to just save him the trouble of having to make an excuse. Any way if your friend doesn't like her way of doing it, he should talk to the wife and hopefully work it out and not let it be a reason for divorce.

@paigea my friend and I went to a fastfood this morning. He wanted to talk to me. I knew he needed someone to talk to. One of his grave problem is his daughter-in-law who is so disrespectful. The thing here is my friend and his wife bought their house 10 years ago. Her son and his wife talked to them to move to the house because they could no longer afford to pay the mortgage of their own house. They got 3 small kids. Now if he is going to kick them out, they got no place to go because the son is the only one working. Now that problem was made worse by the mistake of his wife. My friend is like me . . he does not drink, smoke, and no other vices. He got 2 jobs . .He is really a nice guy with soft heart. This is the only time I see him so upset. I told him that even though you love your son and your grandkids, your well being is more important. You have to talk to them again and if things don't still work . . . he has to decide what is good for him. I think their daughter-in-law is corrupting the mind of his wife.

I think there is more to this tale than your friend mentioned. Perhaps he is not nice to his wife or family.
