Imagine marrying into a family that has a history of trashing their vacation home, and now you're expected to just let it slide? 😒 That's the predicament our protagonist, a 31-year-old woman, finds herself in after marrying her husband, Chris. They both own homes, and after combining finances and renovating their properties, she's had enough of the disrespect from her husband's friends and family. Will she stand her ground, or will the freeloading continue? 🤔 Let's dive into the story...

Is She the Bad Guy for Protecting Their Investment? 🤷‍♀️

Our protagonist stands her ground, refusing to let certain family members use their newly renovated vacation home. She's been called controlling and a gatekeeper for denying access to those who've previously trashed the place. 😤 Her in-laws even offered a security deposit, but she knows $500 might not cover potential damages. 🙅‍♀️ The family thinks they shouldn't have renovated if they didn't want to share, but she believes it's their right to protect their investment. 💪 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
