Angry with SIL....would you be?

Ok so here is the scoop.  DH and I got in an argument.  It was not a major argument or anything crazy like that.  Just about stuff around the house that needs done and I feel like I am the only one doing them.  Anyway...DH called his sister and was complaining about how mean I am.  She told him that he could move in with her.  I realize that she has been married three times and has run at the first sign of major trouble instead of trying to work it out....but DH and I have been through a lot.  I get that he was just venting to her....but she should have never tried to get him to move in with her and end our marriage.  Luckily he just brushed it off....but who does that?  I mean the argument was seriously about the fact that I had run the dishwasher and and asked him to empty it when it finished as I was leaving for work...he didn't and said he ran out of time...(not sure what that means)  Then I told him that I need him to help more around the house because we both work full time and I can't do it all on my own.  I also told him I appreciate that took care of the lawn and cleaned out the freezer....but I was more worried about the dishes being cleaned since most of our stuff is packed away for a move and we don't have a lot of dishes.  It just wasn't a big deal and he got all defensive and pissy because that is what he does.

 

Later...he went to unload the dishwasher which I had already done...and apologized for making an issue out of it.  But it just seems like his sister is always giving him an out....and it pisses me off.  How can I tell her that we work through our issues and she needs to quit trying to end our marriage over petty shit.

I wouldn't say anything. I would ask my husband to say something to her.

I would ask my husband to QUIT talking to his sister about our marriage.

This!
If he knows this will be her reaction, he either needs to confront her and tell her that he has no plans of ending his marriage & would appreciate it if she didn't jump to conclusions, or just not talk to her about your relationship at all!
