So, we visited in laws house, all in the living room and siblings started bickering..
Baby was with her dad, his sis went over after he told her to shut up and punched him!!! Dh elbowed her away so she didnt get baby.
I was mortified, grabbed baby told them all to fuck off and got in the car.
Mil has said i was rude and i should apologise???? I explained that i was around violence as a child and it wasnt pleasant.. but still she thinks im wrong for not talking to his sis and apologising cause she is older than me...
Wwyd? Baby is 10 months & was crying when this happened as they were also screaming!

WTF? Your partner and his sister had a screaming match while he was holding your baby and then the sister hit your DH? Is that right?

What would I do? Stay the fuck away from the lot of them. Does DH bicker with you too?

I wouldn't be pleased. At 10 months the baby will surely understand what is happening as well. Not to mention it being dangerous. I would physically hit anyone anyway but especially not someone holding a baby! Not good behaviour.

What kind of adult siblings punch each other, what a classy lot they must be!

Toddlers and young children siblings might fight a little sometimes but I would never expect adult siblings to act this way

That should say I wouldn't hit someone!

Motherduckling Mon 16-Apr-18 14:10:57

Pretty much yes- DH wasnt screaming just telling her to be quiet!!
And yes she got up, walked over to him and hit him!

In that case I'd be telling my DH that if that sister came near me or my baby again I'd be calling the police unless she wised up really fast and came on her hands and knees to apologise. Imagine if she'd hit your baby or your DH had dropped her/fallen over. She sounds like a total nutter that you need to stay far away from.

How bizarre confused

The 'you should forgive her because she's older than you' thing, where's that from? Are they from a certain culture where respect for age and birth order trumps all?

I wouldn't be allowing the child near the sister again or the MIL if that's her attitude, unless it was at a public place under close supervision (MIL only: SIL, never again)

So im not being silly in not talking to her ever again!!!
I am going to hide this thread now as she is on here and i cant be bothered with her

Hiding doesn't hide it for everyone else. Just for you.

Would I fuck have any of them around my child. Tell MIL she's deluded and have sod all to do with the lot of them

Honestly? Not only would I not be apologising in your shoes, it would be a cold day in hell before any of them were allowed near my child.

Has anything like this ever happened before? I mean the screaming and the violence generally in this family?

Definitely tell them all to fuck off and stay away from your family until they grow up and learn how to behave like civilised people. Disgusting behaviour and you weren't even a tiny bit unreasonable.
