When meeting your partner's parents, you have to expect some generational differences — especially if they're from a different culture.
But one woman is wondering whether she needs to acquiesce to her boyfriend's mom's demands that she keep her legs covered in his parents' presence. She took to Reddit to ask if she was in the right.
I love my boyfriend but his immigrant South Asian mother is a really stubborn insular person. I knew her staying with us is not going to be pleasant for many reasons, but I think being polite and firm would be the way to go. For some reason, my bf thinks that I should be "more tactful, even if I'm not wrong."
The straw that broke the camel's back is her apparent hatred for me wearing shorts. Granted they're pretty short but it's 2021 and it's summer. And I've got killer legs lady, don't blame me for that. I'm pretty sure your son gets off on that.
