A father had shared a story on Reddit’s “AITA” subreddit. The father explained that he bought a house for his son, in Pennsylvania, after he went to college. And after he graduated, he decided to stay in that house instead of returning to New Jersey.
OP was thinking that the house was a good investment, and he was also thinking that it would be a good change once in a while to visit there.
OP explained that he paid the taxes of the house, service and renovated where his son should be doing. Until the future wife of his son arrived, things were agreeable.
As OP’s son was living in Pennsylvania, he met with a woman, and after he proposed, they decided to move in together.
Things were good until the wedding talks arrived. They had a gathering at the Pennsylvania where the families met with each other, and to celebrate the union of the couple.
As the barbecue was going great, OP’s wife and daughter came out of the house as their faces turned pale, and wanted to go back home. During the drive back home, OP couldn’t get a word from his family.
When they reached back to their house, OP learned what happened. His wife and daughter heard their in-laws talking about themselves, which tehy said that the OP and his family were not “their kind of people,” and they should be uninvited from the wedding.
OP called his son, and explained their conversation as, “He tells me that her family [feels] that we are not good enough and will embarrass them at a family wedding and that we are all uninvited from the wedding.”
After a week later, OP went to Pennsylvania and wanted to talk with his son. But the things he witnessed there had angered him. He saw that the in-laws were living in OP’s Pennsylvania house.
As OP lost it, after what he saw, he shared, “I lost it and told them that they had 30 days to get out. Tell my son I’m selling the house, and he could find somewhere else to live with all of you. I go to a realtor in town and list the house for sale.”
After that, OP’s son had called him and asked what happened and why he is selling the house. OP said to his son that he was living rent free, and didn’t paid anything for the house. And as he doesn’t want his family in his wedding, he needs to leave the house of his parents.
OP shared that he felt, “in-laws seem to take over and we no longer count.”
