One of the worst things that can happen when trying to start your own family is that your relatives won’t approve of the person you want to spend your life with. You are put in a position where you have to pick sides – your partner or your family. And either decision is equally heartbreaking.
Reddit user Roseonthefloor found himself in a situation where his mother started acting rude and disrespectful towards his girlfriend Rose. The Original Poster (OP) noticed a sudden change in his mother’s behavior when the couple announced they were expecting a child. “Something definitely switched in her,” the boyfriend wrote. The couple decided to keep their distance from OP’s mother “until she fixes her behaviour.”
Yet, unexpected circumstances happened, and Rose had to spend one night at the woman’s place when the OP was out of town. The mother forced the soon-to-be mother of her grandchild to sleep on the floor, despite having a spare couch where Rose could rest. She was worried that Rose would “ruin her couch.” Yet, it didn’t seem to be the real reason why the woman behaved this way.
After finding this out, the OP got into a big argument with his mother for being disrespectful toward his pregnant girlfriend. The OP turned to the AITA community to see if he was wrong for getting mad at his mother for making Rose sleep on the floor. Redditors were pretty unanimous about their decision. Read on to see the whole story and what the Redditors had to say. What would you do in the OP’s situation?
