Just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this and can give advice. Long story short…my Husband’s sister is an addict and has recently been in trouble with the law. Because of this my family….who is hosting my baby shower….does not want her in their home as the legal issues are related to theft. My Mother in law has blinders on when it comes to my sister in law. She thinks the drugs and legal issues are all one big misunderstanding. She enables her and it makes it very hard on everyone because while we all see the truth about what is going on, she does not. My Mom and my Mother in law are good friends. My Mom asked my Mother in Law if there was anyone specific she wanted to invite to the baby shower and of course she said my Sister in law. My Aunt is having the party at her house and said absolutely not could she be in her home. I’d also like to mention that currently my sister in law is not even allowed at my Mother in laws house (my Mother in Law is remarried and her Husband does not allow my Sister in law in the home due to her recent arrest). I asked my Husband to please speak to his Mother and explain the situation but ultimately the situation is she is not invited. My fear is this will upset my Mother in Law so badly that she will not speak to myself of my Mother any longer. Our only other option is to pay to have the baby shower at a venue and money is tight as it is. Any advice?
