Family relationships in general can sometimes get awkward, but in-laws are usually a whole different kind of challenge. The "nobody is good enough" stereotype is sometimes unfortunately very real and partners can feel totally left out and isolated from people who they are supposed to consider their own family. When it comes to your sex life, though, that's usually off limits for judgment. What two (or three) consenting adults do behind closed doors is their private business and they should be free to do what makes them happy. Prudes are a buzzkill!
However, family members can often still find a way to offer their opinions on your sexual choices or preferences. So, for all of humanity's moral dilemmas, Reddit's "Am I the As*hole" is here to save the day. Let's dive in, shall we?
I've been married for 7 years. We have a great marriage, though his brother's wife V has always been highly judgmental. She didn't think I was good enough to marry into the family and since we both had kids at the same time things have gotten worse. She doesn't like my parenting, my marriage, well anything really.
So my husband and I have a semi open marriage. We're interested in swinging and threesomes, but if the other person isn't there it's crossing a line. My two daughters were out of the house last night so we invited my best friend/ our sometimes threesome partner for a sleepover.
