One woman found herself in a difficult situation when her MIL moved into her one-bedroom apartment and began invading her privacy. After a disagreement over closet space, the woman came home to find her MIL had taken over her closet entirely. After confronting her MIL, the woman took drastic action and threw her MIL's clothes out of the bedroom. Now, she's wondering if she was in the wrong. Was she justified in taking back her personal space or did she overreact? Let's dive into this AITA post and find out.

👵🏼👗🚫 Woman throws MIL's clothes out after being disrespected.

Living with your mother-in-law can be challenging, especially when she overstays her welcome and starts to invade your personal space. In this scenario, a woman's mother-in-law moves in with her and her husband while her house is being renovated. The mother-in-law takes it upon herself to start taking over the woman's bedroom, including her closet, without her consent. When the woman confronts her mother-in-law, she gets berated by her husband for being petty. The woman then throws her mother-in-law's clothes out of the bedroom, causing a fight between her and her husband. Now, the question is, who is in the wrong here? Was the woman justified in her actions, or was she being unreasonable? Let's take a closer look at the situation and hear what others have to say.

NTA- OP should leave and not have children with this man.
