woman is questioning whether she and her husband were in the wrong for leaving her in-laws' dinner after they brought up her husband's ex-girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend, Emma, had previously crossed boundaries and tried to kiss the woman's husband. Despite this, the in-laws continued to talk about Emma and even joked about wanting her to date their son. When the couple stood up for themselves and left, the in-laws called them uncivilized and blamed them for ruining the friendship between their son and Emma. Do you think the couple was in the wrong for leaving, or were the in-laws out of line for continually bringing up an ex-girlfriend who disrespected their relationship?

Couple storms out of disrespectful dinner after in-laws defend ex-friend 😡

A couple's in-laws have been causing drama over the husband's ex-friend, Emma, who crossed boundaries and tried to kiss him. Despite this, the in-laws continue to defend Emma and make disrespectful comments about the wife. During a recent dinner, the wife was upset when the in-laws joked about her husband and Emma being a better match. The husband and wife decided to leave, standing up for themselves and their relationship. However, the in-laws refused to take responsibility for their actions and blamed the wife for ruining the friendship. Were the couple in the wrong for storming out, or were the in-laws disrespectful? Let's see what others have to say in the comments.

NTA. The in-laws' dismissal of s*xual assault and constant jokes are unacceptable.
