When this woman's relationship is at stake because of her dog, she asks Reddit:
I (27F) have been with my boyfriend (28M) for a little over a year and moved in with him two months ago and brought my black lab (3M) when I did.
I've always slept with my dog in the bed with me but stopped when I started staying the night with my bf because I was worried that it would be a deal breaker early on. Once I moved in I figured that it wouldn't be that big of a deal especially after I told my bf that I sleep with the dog.
Recently he's been telling me that he wants the dog out of the bed.
He says he loves the dog but it makes it really difficult to sleep and he kept getting woken up, he also says the dog is causing him to be in pain from sleeping funny so he's sore when he wakes up but I know it's bullshit.
He's actually in pain from his job (warehouse worker) but he keeps putting it on the dog to try to get my to kick the dog out of bed.
I told him that if I'm sleeping in the bed the dog is sleeping with me and now he's slept on the couch for the last few nights and hasn't really talked to me much. AITA?
Wait...you hid your habit until after moving in with your BF, then kicked him out of his own bed in favor of a dog? I'm a dog person, and YTA.
As someone who sleeps with two large dogs each night I have to go with YTA. one of my dogs (and the one I would make a bf sleep on the couch for) sleeps on the side peacefully.
The other one takes up half the bed and kicks. I have had terrible nights sleep because of him. I get it. You should put a dog bed next to your side of the bed and have the dog sleep there.
