A Redditor shared their troubling family problems in a viral post.

“My MIL suddenly passed away in a car accident last month. At the same time my ‘stalker’ disappeared,” she said.

The woman explained that she’d never had a good relationship with her mother-in-law from the start.

“She has tried to sabotage my relationship with my husband since the day she met me,” she said.

“I wasn’t good enough for her handsome and successful boy. I contemplated ending my relationship several times but my husband always showed that he is on my side. And I love him.”

For years, she’d been getting harassed by an unknown stalker online.

“A few years ago, I started getting very threatening and scary emails and texts from a Pax,” she said.

“This Pax knew everything about me. It didn’t matter how many emails and phone numbers I changed they or ‘he’ always found me.

“I made several reports but nothing happened. My husband tired everything to trace the emails. Nothing came out of it. This past year I basically never left the apartment alone.”

After her mother-in-law passed, the messages stopped coming.

“I haven’t received a single threatening text or email from Pax in a month. After a few days I wasn’t surprised. Felt like I always knew it was MIL deep down,” she said.

“My husband hasn’t reacted yet. He’s consumed with his grief and I don’t want to bother him, especially when he bitterly told me ‘you must be very pleased now’ when we heard the news and I tried to comfort him (he apologized later and said he was just feeling guilty that he loved and chose me more that he loved her).”

In a follow-up post, the Redditor shared her husband’s reaction to finding out her stalker’s identity.

She explained that her mother-in-law’s death gave her a new lease on life as she waited for her husband to connect the dots.

He said he has always suspected her and even talked to her a couple of times about it and she made him so guilty by accusing him of being my simp.

“With 10 minutes walks alone, then 15 then 1/2 hour and so on. At first my husband didn’t notice my freedom or maybe he did but was processing it himself,” she said.

“Last Friday I told him that I was going out with the girls. Alone? Yes! Want me to drive you there? No need! Are you not afraid anymore? No, my stalker won’t bother me again. He kissed me and wished me a nice evening.

“When I came home around midnight, he was still up. He said that he wanted to talk to me. He asked me, was my mother your stalker? Yes! He broke down crying.

“He said he has always suspected her and even talked to her a couple of times about it and she made him so guilty by accusing him of being my simp.

“He said he noticed how I after so many years of fear and anxiety stopped eventually crying in my sleep and he has noticed that I haven’t woken him up for a a month now.

Her husband apologized for not protecting her from his family and despite his suspicions.

The apology, she explained, strengthened their relationship and marriage.

“Honestly I’m not even mad or disappointed. If the police couldn’t help me, I don’t know how much my husband could have done and I just want to move on and leave this behind,” she said.

“We are going to start couple’s therapy and my husband is planning to tell his family that MIL was my stalker.

“He is adamant about it and honestly, I think it’s a good idea. My husband has also decided not to attend the headstone setting on MIL’s grave.”

Viewers were glad to hear the two worked it out despite years of torment.

“I’m glad you are enjoying life again. My [in-laws] have their drama…but not to that point. Can’t imagine!” said one commenter.

“Go out and have fun, OP. She can’t hurt you anymore,” said another.

“Resist the urge to p*ss on her grave (but I’d understand if you did).”
