Oh wow, thanks for posting an update.  Glad you guys stood up for yourselves!!  And I’m glad at least your MIL had the chance to realize that what your cousins did was WAY out of bounds.

I’m glad you stood up against your (shitty) in laws. It sucks that they somehow think you are the bag guy for calling the cops, but it’s great that your husband stood up for your home and marriage. 

Hopefully this “prank” soaked up any potential bad karma you might have had so that you have a joyful marriage.

@Cummins59:  I’ve never, in all my life, heard of such a thing. I’m so sorry this happened to you! I think you guys did the right thing. How damaging to your husband’s relationship with his brother, too. Just awful.

@Cummins59:  thanks for the update, I’ve been waiting for one. I’m so glad our Husband stand up for you and your relationship, his family sound just awful. I’d wait for his brother to get married and then return the favour, but I’m a bitch like that ;).

You are more kind than I am because I would have pressed charges. It’s good you called the cops and got it on file.  I hope you took photos of everything!

Thanks for the update, as many other bees I’ve been wondering what happened. I hope things goes smoother with time and that your husbands brother will one day grow up and manage to produce an excuse. However, until that time – I think you’ve done everything right in this awful situation.

You had a rough start, but I think you’ve proven to the world that you’re indeed a team!

Good for you for calling the cops; sounds like certain members of his family needed a serious wake up call. They won’t mess around with you again, which I’m sure is a huge relief for you!! I’m glad they are covering the damages too (damn straight!!).

i was just thinking about this the other day and wondering how things were going. i’m glad your DH stood up for you and your relationship. those people are insane and don’t deserve to be a part of your lives. i absolutely think calling the cops was the right thing to do. i would’ve done the same thing! i’m also glad the damages are being paid for by the people who should be paying it!

Glad you settled and hope they pay up.  Glad your FI stepped up to them as well.  And wow they are treating you like you did somehting to them.  Wow.  I’d be so embarrased if I was them and begging for forgiveness, not acting offended.  it sucks that he is kinda loosing his fam, but you don’t need these people in your lives.  All the best.

Great update! You know, you could visit the grandparents without the rest of DH’s family. My advice is to keep up all precautions, heck I would invest in a wireless security system (check out amazon.com) – that way you could check in on your home and animals even when away from home. Based on the guilty party’s reactions and behavior, I wouldn’t trust them EVER.

@Cummins59:  Wow. I can’t believe they STILL don’t understand how absolutely horrendous and disgusting their actions were. I feel sad for your DH about essentially losing his family, but they brought that upon themselves. He definitely sound like the best of the bunch by far.
