One woman was in the middle of a family dilemma when her parents and sister offered to pay for a family holiday, inviting her husband along too. The only problem was, they wanted her to share a bed with her sister while the husband slept on the floor!
Vacation Plans Gone Wrong
A woman faces a puzzling situation as her family’s summer trip plans lead to an unexpected and uncomfortable sleeping arrangement for her husband.
An Exciting Adventure
The family, consisting of Mum, Dad, a Sister (Carol), and her husband (Paul), was excited about their upcoming adventure, which would last nearly two weeks.
The Awkward Room Dilemma
According to Carol, “Everyone seems to expect that my parents will share a bed, my sister and I will share a bed, and my husband will sleep on the floor,”
Since this was the setup they used when her brother used to come on the trips.
Taking Action Against Her Family
Feeling uncomfortable with the sleeping arrangement, Carol took action.
Reluctant to Speak Out
Her parents were generously covering all expenses for the trip, making her hesitant to voice her concerns, but Carol thought that having Paul sleep on the floor was disrespectful to their relationship.
A Troubling Sister?
“I know my sister would pitch a fit about having to be the one to sleep on the floor, but it feels disrespectful to my relationship to me to have my husband sleep on the floor.”
Turning to the Online Community
After turning to Reddit, the solution became clear, but first some men voiced their opinion.
Men Have Their Say
Some males in the comments section argued they would rather sleep on the floor if meant steering away from awkward drama, “As the husband I would rather sleep on the floor than deal with that awkwardness.”
A Mature Solution?
Some suggested that the couple should pay for their own room, while others proposed rotating sleeping arrangements or letting her sister have the bed, “Get your own room with your husband.” One user called out.
“My family is paying for this vacation because it is about 3 hours away from where we live and they are coming out specifically to spend time with us, knowing we don’t have much in the way of finances.” Carol admitted tearfully.
She’s Going to Take a Stand
“I’m thinking maybe I also sleep on the floor in solidarity and let my sister have the bed, or us as a couple and my sister take turns sleeping on the floor.”
What’s the Big Deal?
Many users of Reddit argued that it’s not such a big deal having to sleep with your family-in-law, “I’ve slept so many random places that I wouldn’t care a drop – I’ve shared a hotel with my wife, her brother, and her father before.” One user shared.
