from the "wifes" point of view: If the TV was on and you and your brother were watching it, as long as the volume wasn't extremely loud and he wasn't jumping up yelling at the TV, what was the problem?? It sounds like your wife either has a major control issue or really doesn't like your brother. Tell her to grow up and call him....

That extends to the TV also. So long as the rest of the guests had no heartburn then wifey should not ethier.

Seems the problem is a bit more deep rooted then the TV. In any case, tell her to grow up and treat guests as guests.

x2

brother could have handled that better.

Tell you wife how you feel and then stay out of it. This is her family and you can't get involved.

1) It was a birthday party, and probably shouldn't have been watching the Tv during it. After cake and presents, and if its not obstrusive, afterwards would have been fine.

So, Brother was wrong

2) Even though its her/your house, it doesn't mean she should act like an ass. If you want to enforce proper etiquette(i.e. its rude to watch TV during a party), then exercise proper etiquette yourself (i.e. its equally rude to turn off the TV on someone)

So, wife was wrong.


Thank god, though, that you came to a 4x4 board and asked for help. Far too many people wait until they have at least 15 posts before unloading their dysfunctional family woes on us. You did the right thing, sir. Welcome to GL4x4

They are both acting like children!! Tell them both to grow up! Your brother did ask to change the channel. It's not like he grabbed the remote out of your wife's hands! As for the rest of the family, they should be pissed at your brother, not your wife. It was his choice to leave and make them leave with him! I think there is more things going on between your bro and your wife your not telling us. I'd just ask your bro to suck it up and apologize (just to humor your wife!) that way it will end the issues in the family and he will look like the good guy!

You were wrong for sitting there watching "the game" with your brother while everyone was over for your daughters birthday party.

Your wife was wrong for just walking in and turning the TV off while people were watching it. (but I can't blame her for bring upset)

Your brother was wrong for being such a baby that he would get so pissed and leaving over not being able to watch a game.

Your family was wrong for just going along with your brother and leaving.

As far as I can tell the only innocent party is your daughter who had her birthday party ruined.

If you really want my opinion all the adults in this story, including you, should be ashamed of themselves and the one who should be apologized to is your daughter.

I think they are both in the wrong. But him stroming out over the tv channel is just lame. He wasnt there to see the game and he should have stayed for the b-day party. If you ask me side with your wife and tell him to grow up!

1) get all parties in a room only the hot ones

2) Lock said door

3) make everyone get naked and screw each other

4) they'll forget about that incident and be totally different from that point on.
