A 20-year-old woman has revealed that she sleeps with her 26-year-old brother to keep warm but it left her boyfriend furious.
The woman took to Reddit and explained that she and her older brother have a bond that is so strong that they share a bed to keep warm.
“My boyfriend left on Friday to spend the night at his parents’ house because his mum was not feeling well. He knew that my brother was coming over,” she wrote.
The woman said that her brother arrived early in the morning and because he did not want to wake her up, he simply jumped into bed.
“He tells me: ‘If you’re not going to wake up, at least let me get into bed ’cause it’s cold and I’m sleepy too’.
“I say okay and he gets in. We immediately fall asleep.”
But when her boyfriend came back, he was not happy with what he saw.
“He starts saying how this is ‘basically cheating’, asking if we had s*x, if we’re in an incestuous relationship, etc., that this is absolutely disgusting and mega inappropriate and other delusional things like that,” she went on.
“I tell him that we’ve always shared a bed while living at home and that this is 100 per cent platonic. He lets me know that ‘we were snuggling under the blankets while sleeping’.
“I tell him yeah, that’s what people do when they share a bed and it’s cold.”
The woman also said she and her boyfriend are not talking to each other so she turned to Reddit for advice.
One internet user commented: “Yeah I think it’s weird. I honestly wouldn’t share a bed with my brother. One of us could take the couch for the night. Definitely wouldn’t ‘snuggle’ in bed.”
Another wrote: “It’s even weirder that that’s the first place his mind went.”
A third added: “I think it’s a little weird for adult brother and sister to snuggle, but the boyfriend is definitely the a*****e for throwing a fit and accusing them of incest.”
