Is one responsible for their partner’s friends?
But a poor partner wouldn’t waste their efforts in doing either.
This topic was highlighted in a recent Reddit post in which a man tries to trick his girlfriend into taking his friends with them on a trip, even after she refused.
Woman turns her car around after seeing her boyfriend and his friends
The author starts the post by saying that she and her boyfriend, Smith, had been dating for over eight months. They had been planning a road trip, but couldn’t go because Smith wanted to take his friends.
When he brought it up again, the author pointed out that she was paying for the trip and going in her car and didn’t want to pay for his friends. She also wanted to do something with just them both. So they decided to go alone.
The author agreed to pick him up in the morning and was almost there when she saw him standing with his two friends. They all had their bags. So instead of driving toward them, she turned back and went home.
From the rearview mirror, she saw her boyfriend running after her car and then, calling her. When she attended the call, he lashed out and questioned her actions. She explained that she didn’t appreciate how he tried to force her to take his friends.
He accused her of ruining the whole trip for all of them and humiliating him in front of his friends. He suggested that she put up with the situation. Now he won’t talk to her.
What do you think? Should the author have just accepted the situation and taken all of them on the trip? Share your thoughts below.
