Family Torn Apart: Girlfriend Gets Booted from Boyfriend’s Parents’ House over Vulgar Joke

Not long ago, a woman turned to the online Reddit community for advice. She had kicked her son’s girlfriend out of their home because she made a rude joke. Now, her son isn’t talking to her. She wants to share her side of the story.

Her son had a girlfriend whom the woman and her husband recently met for the first time. She found out they had been dating for around a year, but it was only recently that her son wanted her to meet his parents.

Her son spoke highly of his girlfriend, who had recently earned a degree, was very family oriented, and liked her job. The woman was most pleased by the fact that her son was happy. “My husband and I don’t think he’s ever been this into someone before, so I feel pretty bad about what I did,” she said.

By this point, the woman and her husband were excited about meeting her due to how much her son had been talking about her. He had been telling them how perfect she was and how he thought she was “the one.”

Her son was grinning from ear to ear, which was a positive start to the night. The woman and her husband invited them in, and her son’s girlfriend accepted her hug and a firm handshake from her husband.

At this point, his girlfriend opened her mouth and said: “I’m the one your son has sex with.” The woman was appalled by this. Her husband and son are jokesters, something she loves despite how annoying it can sometimes be, so she expected her husband to laugh.

However, this was just too much for her. The woman admits that she may be a tad reserved but was surprised that of all the things she could have shared about her son, she said that. Her husband only needed to look at her face once to know how much she disapproved.

“Maybe I let my expectations get too high, and it’s unfair to have them, but I reiterate: of all things to say to her boyfriend’s parents – whom she’d never met – she chose THAT?” she said. “My son was amused at first, but when he noticed my reaction, his face dropped.”

The woman felt as though her son had sold her the full package and found everything he had been looking for in a girlfriend. The visual that her comment led to was something that disturbed her, and this swiftly translated into anger.

She told the girl to get out of her house, and though she wanted to say more, she decided to leave it at that. Her son didn’t want to go, insisting she gave his girlfriend another chance. By that point, though, she was too fed up and uncomfortable.

The woman immediately felt guilty. It was an occasion that her son was looking forward to, and the woman felt as though she had taken that away over a dumb joke. She has tried calling her son to say sorry, but he’s been ignoring her. Her husband, meanwhile, felt their son’s girlfriend is the one that should be apologizing.

Was she right?

She has been considering giving her son’s girlfriend another chance, but first, she asked for advice to make sure she wasn’t simply overreacting. 

People responded

One person said, “I’m pretty liberal and open-minded, but I would never lead with that meeting my boyfriend’s parents for the first time. Or say that, EVER.”

Someone else said, “What are the chances it was your son’s idea all along, and she just (regretfully) went along with it?”
