When a simple family visit goes awry 🤷‍♀️

In this situation, a wife bans her husband from visiting her sister again after he provoked her into an argument during their first meeting with their newborn niece. The husband has a habit of challenging his sister-in-law on their differing views and doesn't take her request to stop seriously. The sister-in-law, who is finishing her graduate degree in social sciences, has had enough of his behavior and asks him to either quit or leave because she was done entertaining his nonsense.

The wife is caught in the middle and is wondering if she's being unreasonable for not allowing her husband to visit her sister again. Read on to find out what people on Reddit have to say about this family feud.
