Am I in the wrong here?

My mother is a very unstable person. She lost custody of my brother and me when she and my dad split up. Then she remarried the guy who knocked her up and a few years later, she lost custody of my little sister to my step dad.

Now we're all adults and I have four kids. I rarely let her around them and never unsupervised. She's dating this jailbird loser who beats her, does drugs (like hard shit, not just pot), and had threatened me and my husband more than once.

We told her he is not welcome around our family at all.

She texted me today (first time in months) to ask if she could come over and bring him with her. I said she is welcome but he's not. She blew up at me saying he is her spouse and where she goes, he goes. I said fine. Guess she's made her choice and hope she's fine trading her family for that loser.

Was I out of line?

Nope. If he's a danger to your family, he shouldn't come near your home.

Not at all. You have to do what you have to do to protect your family.

Absolutely not, your poor excuse for a mother was.
