Family dynamics can be complicated, especially when a new family member stirs up trouble.

When this person told his brother his new wife is the root of the family’s drama, it sparked a heated debate.

AITA for telling my brother our mother isn’t the problem, his wife is the common denominator with all this drama

My brother married Kat. Kat is difficult to get along with in general. Everyone in the family has had some type of drama with her.

My drama with her revolved around being extremely rude about the food I made for a gathering. In general she is unpleasant to be around.

The family has taken a step back from my brother and his wife. We really only see them for family holidays. My mother dislikes her and avoids her.

We’re about to find out why.

This is we’re the issue starts, my brother and Kat asked our mother to pet sit. She told them no and it was apparently a large fight.

I asked my mom about it. She doesn’t want to pet sit since she knows Kat would have a problem with something and it’s not worth the hassle.

How are they going to take this?

My brother was calling other people and they were also turning him down.

I got a call and he went on a rant about how no one wants to help and our mother has turned the family against him.

Here’s where the truth comes out.

I told my brother our mom isn’t the problem, that it’s his wife. That she is the common denominator with all the family drama and people don’t want to put up with her bull****.

He called me a jerk and I am wondering if I went too far.


It sounds like this little blowup was a long time coming.

Will Reddit take his side?
