my sons wife pretty much ruined our 4th of july celebrations this weekend.
My son was friends with this great girl before ( i actually had hoped he ended up with her), but they were just friends... of course DIL thinks there was more to it ( the friend use to live with us for a short time even and i knew there was nothing going on ) ...
well my DIL had asked me a couple weeks ago if I had known anyone who wanted the baby girl clothes that my new grandaughter had outgrown ... of course since i still talk to the sweet friend, i knew she was having a little girl soon and said that I knew someone who wanted them....
i could tel DIl was annoyed when she found out who i gave them to, but oh well because she didnt tell me NOT to give them to her...
and then this past weekend I invited the friend to our family 4th of july events ( cookout, camping, etc.) ... well when my son and she got there, they only stayed for an hour and i could tell DIL was in a stink and made them leave...
i confronted my son as DIL was putting the baby in the car and asked what the deal was , my son said she just didnt want to stay because the friend was there and they were leaving...
Today we had the second part of our celebration, and after telling my sister about how DIl acted I had her ask her why she was acting so rude ( my sister has a loud mouth so i knew she would find out lol ) ... So when DIL and my son got there and say down my sister pounced and kept asking her why she acted like that, telling her that it is very unattractive to act jealous over a friendship and that this girl is considered a family friend and she needs to knock it off...
well DIL started crying and went and say in her car ( now I am not mean and i felt bad she was crying, but on the other hand she was ruining the family fun) , me and my sister went out and asked her why she was crying and she said that my son had slept with that girl when they first started dating and she just found out... BUT I know that is a LIE ... my son wouldnt sleep with his friend, and the girl is too sweet, plus she was married at the time. I actually felt bad for DIL but now i am just mad, and I honestly think she is jealous of my friendship with her ( friend) ... but really isnt it My choice who i am friends with ?

I'm just wondering what makes you so sure he didn't sleep with her? Try putting yourself in your DIL's shoes, how would you feel? Really think about it!

OP, I've had a DIL I didn't like but I didn't want to lose contact with my son so I swallowed it and said nothing. You are blowing this one big time. Your DIL is your SONS choice. He obviously is backing her. You telling your sister so she could act like a a total bitch was inexcusable. You owe her an apology at minimum. You visit with your family friend when your son and his family aren't around. YOU ruined your get together, not the DIL.
