A woman's brother-in-law kissed her while her husband was away, now she doesn't know what to do

When people speak of balancing their relationship with their in-law's they think of the spouse's parents, but what about their siblings too? Building relationships with your spouse's siblings can be a great way to strengthen your collective family ties, however it's important to keep that relationship separate from the marriage itself. While it can be painless and even fun to have your partner's siblings gradually become like your own family, boundaries still need to remain intact in order for the marriage between you and your partner to remain protected.

One woman tells a story about how her relationship with her husband's brother has gone a little too far. She and her husband have been married for 2 years and she is a stay at home mom. They have a little boy and another baby on the way. The brother-in-law comes over often but this time he was over the house while her husband wasn't there and she describes how the day started off innocent:

We sat down and chatted while eating some brownies that I’d made earlier and he was just complaining to me about his wife and I was giving him emotional support. Then he started comparing me to her saying I was a good wife and better than her. I just thanked him and told him he was kind.

But then things took a turn:

Then he leaned over and kissed me. I didn’t kiss back because I was in shock. He kissed me for a few seconds before I think he realized I was uncomfortable and he pulled away. He apologized and left pretty soon after.

The woman isn't sure if she should mention this situation to her husband or just leave it alone. She also wonders if she should contact the brother-in-law to say something else about what he did. Either way, the woman doesn't want to start drama over "a little kiss".


What do you think she should do?
