Woman Furious After Sister Throws Party At Her House Instead Of Watching Her Sick Husband

If you’re lucky enough to be able to rely on family for help, you can lean on and trust them more than you’d expect. Which makes it all the more surprising when someone close to you betrays that trust.

Redditor FamilyConflict463 has been struggling to work and get help for her sick husband. Luckily, the original poster (OP)’s sister has been very helpful in this ordeal.

That is, right up until she wasn’t. OP flipped out on her and now the family is shaming OP for reacting in anger. So she went to the “Am I the A**hole” (AITA) subReddit.

To figure out if she was wrong, OP asked the question:

“AITA for kicking my sister out for having a party at my place a day before her wedding behind my back?”

So what exactly happened between OP and her sister?

“My F33 sister F26 was got married last week.”

“She helped with my sick husband a lot recently. He had a surgery days ago and she’d watch him while I worked. She treats him well so I thought she was trustworthy.”

“The day before her wedding, she came over in the morning to stay with my husband I said she didn’t have to and told her my MIL wanted to come stay with him but she insisted saying she got nothing else to do.”

“My MIL called later saying she came over and found that my sister was having guests over and looked like there was a party and MIL was told to leave. She said she didn’t even get to go inside to see her son.”

This doesn’t sound good:

“I was in dismay I called my sister but no response so I dropped everything and drove home at 5. I got there and saw that my sister had her friends over celebrating.”

“I pulled her aside and I was fuming asking what was going on. She apologized and said she needed a place to host a small party with her friends before the wedding and this was her last chance.”

“She said her fiance already wanted the apartment to party with his ‘brothers’. She was hesitant to tell me cause she didn’t think I would let her.”

“I saw she prepared well for the party which led me to ask if she took care of my husband and she just looked at me confused.”

“I ran upstairs and I went inside the room to find my husband’s top and bed covered in vomit. Turned out he threw up in bed and was stuck with his vomit for an hour or two.”

“He’s not advised to leave bed unless it’s necessary and he’s on medication so he’s sleeping most of the time. He couldn’t leave the bed but had tissues and tried to clean up his top.”

“I lost my everloving sh__ on her. she didn’t even check on him except for once as she claimed and ‘he was fine’. I yelled at her and kept shaming her for leaving my husband in a dirty bed when I was reliant on her to watch him. She could’ve at least called me or let [my mother-in-law] in.”

“I had her guests leave and told her to get her stuff and get out but she started crying and called brother in law who wanted to hear ‘both sides’ of the argument before deciding who’s wrong. I had no time for him I helped my husband and cleaned up the sheets.”

“I told him I wasn’t going to her wedding after this and had them leave that moment.”

“My parents got in the middle and said that making my sister cry and kicking her and her guests out the day before the wedding and THEN saying I won’t come to her wedding to support her after she’s supported me with my husband was highly disrespectful and ungrateful of me.”

“Mom said they understand I’m stressed and overwhelmed but this isn’t how I should’ve handled this and resolved this conflict. I declined to call my sister before her wedding and said I won’t attend after she did this, and I didn’t go.”

“They’re 10× more furious now and said that I finished my relationship with my sister when I refused to support her cause of a misunderstanding.”

On the AITA board, people are judged with one of the following comments:

  • NTA – Not the A**hole
  • YTA – You’re the A**hole
  • NAH – No A**holes Here
  • ESH – Everybody Sucks Here

It was difficult for anyone to see how OP could be in the wrong here:

“NTA. Your sister violated your trust by throwing a party at your house and to boot, let your husband bathe in his own vomit for goodness knows how long. This may not even be the first time that she’s done something like this.”

“This was not a misunderstanding, as your family is trying to claim. Your sister planned this party but decided against asking you for permission. It’s a gross violation of trust.”sempirate

“NTA – she crossed a big line ‘borrowing’ your place for a party while your husband is ill. She owes you both a huge apology”FMIEB


“She lied, she had no intentions of caring for your husband that day. She planned and threw a party , which was still a bad idea to have at your home during a pandemic(even tail end) with your sick husband upstairs.”

“Then she left your poor husband up stairs alone and in his own vomit.. Im only happy he did not choke on it.”

“BUT THEN she had the audacity to deny his mother entry to see her sick son and help him! MIL would’ve happily watched him during the party im sure but noooo she had to keep her party up.”

“Your house is not a venue. Your husband is sick and needs rest, and while she helped before she obviously was using that to her advantage to have a secret party”

“I wouldve lost my ever loving sh** too…and then some”Damn_Dutchman


“Your sister got publicly caught in front of her friends and family while being a selfish, greedy bridezilla.”

“Instead of admitting her (horrendous) faults and apologizing, she’s crying and whining to her parents to rescue her, and your spineless parents are continuing to stroke your sister’s fragile ego.”


Others saw the sister’s action as the biggest insult:

“NTA. Wow. For all of her help caring for your husband she didn’t seem to care he could’ve asphyxiated on his vomit and died while she was getting her party on.”

“You family doesn’t seem to grasp that it’s your house, she disrespectfully invited herself to your space and violated it with her friends, neglected and disturbed your unwell healing husband, pulled a teenage house party move and expected you to be okay with it?”

“Your parents need to mind their own business. No. She’s an a**hole. She owes you and your husband an apology.”Due_Pomegranate_9286

“-expected you to be okay with it-”

“No. That’s the part that I can never wrap my head around when people pull this sh**.”

“She LITERALLY TOLD OP she didn’t ask because she thought OP would say no.”

“She literally said she expected OP to be zero percent okay with it. After she admitted that, I don’t see any reason that OP or any third party should still be supporting the sister in her ridiculous ploy for sympathy or understanding.”

“And that’s precisely why she didn’t let MIL in – she knew that would give her away because, again, she knew OP would have a problem with it. If you know in advance that someone will have a problem with it and you goddamn to it anyway, don’t turn around and try and act shocked and paint them as an a**hole when they find out.”

“That’s 100% childish defence mechanism behaviour and It’s ridiculous even when children do it.”

“As for people taking her side… it astounds me that people let kids get away with that kind of excuse-making bullsh**, let alone grown adults. She probably thought she’d get away with it precisely because her parents let her get away with it when she was a kid.”

“The fact that OP’s husband was at risk isn’t what makes her the a**hole. She was already the a**hole even if he wasn’t involved. Leaving her husband to fend for himself makes her a hateful, villainous sociopath.”pctrfdrn

OP’s sister wasn’t just a jerk for throwing a party at OP’s house without her permission. She also left OP’s husband in a dangerous situation, considering how easy could be for someone on sleeping medication to choke on their own vomit.

Maybe the family needs the whole story, because it’s so difficult to imagine anyone supporting this kind of behavior from the sister.
