This attitude really annoys me. It focuses purely on the feelings of you and your wife and completely disregards the fact that she's asking you not only to do something that will negatively affect you and your OSO, but is offering to cause the same heartbreak to her
OSO—who is completely uninvolved in the drama and has done nothing to deserve it—in some kind of arse-backwards attempt at fairness. It treats your OSOs as disposable things rather than as people.
