Gone to parent in law's house, sister In law asked when going to have number 2. I told her that we will be stopping at 1 child, then she say ask my husband go married China woman to have another child.
Husband nearby, I not very sure hear this comment? But he never say anything. Should I take this comment as a joke or to be upset? What will be your response if someone ask about having more kids?
Would she like it if her husband finds a mistress? What the hell is she talking about! Trying to make the wife and hubby quarrel is it? I would say ignore her, she's not worth your time.
So irritating your sister In law.
Just ignore her.. Maybe can hint hint to hubby you not happy: "aiyo you where got so silly find china women when you already have a perfect family with me and kiddo?? tsk tsk... your sister so strange ?"
I guess it depends on her personality.
If she's those always talk without processing much in her brain one ahh,
then can try to ignore her laa.
If not, let her have a taste of it next time round? Some sarcasm perhaps?
Anyway, if it's meant as a joke, SHE IS NOT FUNNY.
no matter she treats it as a joke or mean it, whatever she said is really very UNWANTED!!!!!!! so you have the right to 'think much' and be ANGRY! no one thinks this is a funny 'joke'..
is she married? is so, ask her the same qns. find ways to shoot her and say "HAHA! i just kidding lahhh! so FUNNY!!!!!!!! right???? LOL!!!! "
My mother in law tells me stupid things like thi too.. I just tell her her son is not so great to look after another one.. expenses on my son is way higher than the both of us so happy is happy with 1 too..
I agree, that joke is extremely tasteless.
Just ignore her. If anyone dare to say it to me, I'll just lift my brows and say "oh I didn't know you would want your husband to look for another wife"
She's just like my bro-in-law's wife, talk without using brain or just like to see people quarrel then they happy, sicko people.
I think she's being plain rude by saying such things. If it's me, I will tell her that she's being rude and has no respect for her own brother!
I think it's secondary whether your husband heard it or not, and whether he should have reacted or not. Why wait for him to stand up for you? If you feel offended just tell her straight, dont't need to see if your hubby heard it or not. If he heard it but never react, will you keep quiet about it and let your sister in law insult you, your husband & your marriage like this?

i think i would have slapped her face man. (haha ok, i will not, figure of speech lahs.)
whether she is joking anot, i think it is stupid n she shld apologise.
if my hubby never heard it, i sure complain to him n let him scold his sister himself.
if he heard it n keep quiet, im sure he will kena from me.
