Wife called out for not dancing every night, Thanksgiving gets awkward 🙄

Thanksgiving dinner can sometimes be a tense affair when families come together, but for this wife, it turned into a nightmare. During a conversation about his brother's girlfriend's newfound hobby of dancing, the husband suddenly asked why his wife couldn't dance every night for him like his brother's girlfriend.

The wife responded with a sarcastic explanation of her daily routine and how exhausted she was at the end of the day, causing an awkward silence at the table. The situation escalated when the SIL's husband made a rude comment, leading to the husband storming out of the house and the wife feeling guilty.

Was she in the wrong for standing up for herself or was the husband out of line for putting her on the spot in front of his family? Let's dive into the comments and reactions on Reddit to find out.
