A woman who cannot have kids asked netizens if she was entitled to overreact when her mother-in-law behaved offensively. She excluded her from their family photo album because she cannot and does not have kids.

A woman shared her reason for calling her mother-in-law cruel recently. She told netizens that she is infertile, and while this is "devastating" for her and her husband, Justin, they are fortunate because there are many children in their families.

The two of them enjoy spending time with the little ones. She said she has never had any issues with her mother-in-law. However, she purportedly brings up the woman's infertility regularly.

THEY DID NOT FEATURE IN THE ALBUM

According to the Redditor, the mother-in-law also excluded her from various "kid-based events." When she worked on a photo album, she didn't ask her or Justin for any pictures.

The woman offered to contribute a few photos, and the mother replied, "maybe later." Later never came, and the woman was devastated when the family album was completed without a single page for her and her husband.

THE WOMAN QUESTIONED HER MOTHER-IN-LAW

This month, the mother-in-law excitedly told everyone she had finished working on the photo album, and that's when the woman argued with her.

The woman said she was "dumbfounded" and probed her mother-in-law about why there was no page for her and Justin. She insensitively told her it was because they didn't have kids and hadn't started a family yet.

THE HEATED ARGUMENT

The woman said she told the mother that they were still part of the family, regardless of whether they had children. She asked the mother-in-law to consider her and Justin, and the conversation soon turned into an argument.

Her husband didn't defend her. He told her to take it easy because the argument made her seem entitled and demanding. He also stated that she should not have insulted his mother in her own home.

THE ONLINE REACTION

The woman has taken to the online platform, Reddit, to ask people for their opinions on the photo album incident. Netizens had a lot to say about the encounter, and they didn't think the woman was in the wrong.

One user expressed:

"Honestly she's made it clear she doesn't consider you her family or worthwhile. So you have to decide how much you want to deal with her moving forward. I'm so sorry that she's so cruel and short-sighted."

COMMENTING ON THE HUSBAND'S BEHAVIOR

Others called out the husband. One netizen wrote: "The husband needs to face up to what exactly his mom is doing and recognize that she IS, in fact, cruel ..."

Another shared a similar sentiment and said: "I'm still trying to get my head around how much of a doormat her husband is to his mom. He's totally okay with not being treated like a regular family."
