A WOMAN has turned to the internet to vent about her mother-in-law, who she claimed completely ruined her gender reveal party.
She said her mother-in-law was so upset she asked her own mom to help with the reveal instead of her that she threw a temper tantrum in front of everyone present.

The woman, who has seemingly dedicated her whole TikTok page to document the ups and downs with her mother-in-law, noted that around the time of her gender reveal party, she and her husband visited his mother about once a week.
She added that while her relationship with her own mother is “decent,” they don’t get to see each other as often because she has an “extremely busy” schedule.
Jumping to the actual gender reveal party, the woman explained that she and her husband “collectively decided” to allow her mom to open the gender reveal envelope and subsequently hand them color-coordinated streamers in order to show them the sex of their child.
When they informed the mother-in-law of this plan, she supposedly made it clear she was not happy.
“She was really upset and we tried explaining to her like this is super important to us … we wanted my mom to feel involved,” the poster recalled.
The mother-in-law calmed down, but was triggered once it was time to actually reveal the gender, according to the poster.

“Well come the time that we actually got the streamer in front of all of my friends and family, his mother threw a tantrum,” she claimed.
“She starts screaming and yelling saying: ‘This isn’t fair, I should have been the one to open the envelope first, I’m more involved, she’s not around as often.”
The mother, who has since birthed her child, added: “It was just super embarrassing for everybody involved, so it was so uncomfortable and it took away from the entire event.
“It just kind of made the whole event about her.”
The woman’s story garnered comments of support, outrage, and even people sharing their own mother-in-law horror stories.
“Your husband needs to put her in her place,” one viewer wrote.
“A man who would let his mom disrespect his wife is no man,” a second user stated.
“We need to remember we are raising our kids to become adults and flourish away from us.”
“Mine did this at our wedding,” a user with similar experiences commented.
“Mother-in-law and sister-in-law told me MY wedding was about them.”
“My mother-in-law threatened to fire my husband because he couldn’t work because I was in labor with her grandson,” another added.
Unfortunately, the toxic mother-in-law stories only continue.
One mom revealed her mother-in-law announced to the world that she had given birth and the name of her baby before she even had a chance to pick up her phone.
Another woman vented online that her controlling mother-in-law often claims her baby as her own.
