In a recent Reddit post, a user found himself facing a challenging situation that tested the boundaries of family relationships. Here’s the full story.
Plan to Get Married
OP, a 28-year-old, has been in a committed relationship with his boyfriend for nearly four years and has plans to get married in the near future.
However, their relationship has not been without its share of challenges.
OP’s family initially struggled to accept his sexuality, causing tension between them.
They Came Around
While they eventually came around, the scars of that initial rejection still lingered.
Things took a turn when tragedy struck when OP’s boyfriend lost his sister, who had been his closest confidante throughout his life.
Grief Swallowed Him
The BF was devastated by this loss, and his grief had a profound impact on him.
He Was There for Him
OP, fully understanding the depth of his boyfriend’s pain, stepped in to provide the support that he needed during this incredibly difficult time.
The Family Gathering
Amidst this backdrop of grief and healing, a family gathering at OP’s house took an unexpected turn.
His Family Told Him to Break Up
OP’s family members, who were present at the gathering, made hurtful comments about BF’s grief, labeling it as “dramatic” and even suggesting that OP should consider ending the relationship.
He Was Furious
While the boyfriend was not present to directly hear the hurtful remarks, OP felt an intense surge of anger and frustration.
He Told Them to Get Out
OP asked them if they were being serious and they said they were.
As a result, OP told them to get the hell out of his house and to leave him alone until they were ready to apologize.
His Family Was Angry at Him
OP’s family stormed out and everyone was angry at him but he didn’t care.
He Asked Reddit
However, a while later OP felt bad about what happened and took to Reddit to ask whether he was wrong for what he did.
Redditors Sided With Him
More than a hundred comments poured in saying that OP was not wrong.
One Reddit user wrote, “NTA. Newsflash, family doesn’t accept you being gay. They just jumped at an opportunity to split you guys up. This is a ‘them’ problem, not a ‘you’ problem even though they tried to make it all about BF.”
Trying to Make You Un-Gay
Another Redditor commented, “NTA. Boyfriend gets “dramatic” over losing his sister, and your family thinks that’s a good excuse to dump him? Your bio family is so full of s***… Or, they are still trying to make you un-gay.”
The Family Seems Heartless
A third Reddit user added, “Your family seems heartless. I agree they can leave and go about their business if they are going to be that way.”
