Tattoos can be significant, but some individuals go beyond with them. Especially if your in-laws are involved. Keep in mind that when you marry someone, you are marrying their family as well. While you may always claim that your family is unimportant to you, they are, and before you realize it, you’re faced with two choices. You can either live in peace with them or go to war with them. It may not be your fault, yet relationships and limits can easily become muddled. And this is where the issue arises.
A mother turned to Mumsnet, a parenting network website, in the midst of all the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law conflict. In a now-deleted thread, a woman claimed that her mother-in-law tattooed her children’s names on her leg. While the behavior was endearing, she was disappointed that she had not been given permission to do so.
Given the fact that the MIL did not obtain the mother’s approval. The woman wondered if she was being unreasonable on the parenting network website.
“My husband came home from a visit to his mother’s house and has told me that my MIL has got my children’s names tattooed on her thigh over her own children’s names,” she said in her post, according to The Mirror. I’m irritated because she didn’t seek for our consent.”
Her mother-in-law had also tattooed the name of her own son. While the lady in issue may be upset about her children’s names being tattooed, we don’t believe she has any reason to be upset about her husband’s name. After all, it’s the mother of the husband in question.
So it was reasonable if the husband was the one who was enraged. “Neither my husband nor I have tattoos, and she understands how we felt when she got my husband’s name tattooed on her.” Is it fair to say that I’m irritated and that she should have run it by us first? I have yet to see her.”
Surprisingly, the entire forum booed her for her outspoken opinions.
“Are you this controlling in other facets of your life?” one user wondered. Even if you’ve chosen to call your children by that name, you’re aware that you don’t own it. You also don’t own your mother-in-body. law’s “Extremely strange.”
“You are being unreasonable,” said another commenter. You’d have a reason to be irritated if she had her name tattooed on your child’s leg.”
