Ignore husband, buy sister crib, stick to your guns 👍

"NTA. Even if he hadn't had a history with your parents and ignoring your side of the family this is awful. Why would he be such a jerk to your sister. Will you never 'be able' to buy her anything? He sounds like a complete jerk. I totally get the point you're trying to make. And this has zero to do with your family being toxic. Does he alienate you from your friends too or just your family." - Engaging discussion on family dynamics and gift-giving 🎁
