A 26-year-old man has shared how his girlfriend slammed him after he revealed that he still shares a bed with his mother.
Writing on Reddit, the man explained that his mother wanted to visit a friend’s house but she missed the train and needed a place to stay.
“My family have always been close,” he wrote. “We’re a tighter knit than a lot of families and sometimes it can make people jealous of our kinship.”
The man continued: “We travel together all the time and get hotels with two queen beds where I would stay in the same bed as my sister.
“I would rather sleep in my bed than sleep on the couch or kick my mum onto the sofa.”
But his girlfriend thought it was weird and despite dating for a long time, she still sends ‘jabs’ at her boyfriend.
“I’m not sure of my girlfriend’s relationships with her parents,” he continued.
“We met on a dating app and we’re learning as we go. It seems to me that their family is not as close as mine – is that why she thinks it’s weird?”
Reddit users flocked to the comments section to express their thoughts, and many backed the man.
One person said: “A bed is just a place to sleep. Not everyone agrees with that, but that doesn’t give the right for her to judge you and make degrading comments.”
Another wrote: “It’s a red flag [that] she can’t comprehend people can share a bed and not be s*xual.”
But others find it ‘inappropriate,’ with one person saying: “I would find it odd if my boyfriend did that.”
