She Declined a Family Photo While Traveling in Her Boyfriend’s Native Country, But His Mother’s Reaction Was Far More Intense Than She Ever Expected

A woman recently upset her boyfriend and his family after declining to be photographed with them during a visit to his native country. Unfamiliar with his family and their language, the experience was challenging. Here’s what the woman had to say:

Their Travelling Adventure

She and her boyfriend were traveling in his home country. He loved traveling a lot and was really enjoying the trip, but she wasn’t enjoying it as much. “This is my first long trip, and my first international travel, I am definitely a homebody so I am not enjoying quite as easily but I still like seeing the vastly different country,” she said.

During the trip, she told her partner that she found it hard to talk to his friends and family because they spoke a different language. Even though she liked meeting them, she felt left out because of the language barrier. It made her feel tired, bored, and not part of the conversation.

One evening, they went out for dinner with the man’s family. This was the first time she was meeting his brother’s fiancée. The dinner was very late for her usual eating and sleeping times. She spent the day reading alone to rest.

At the dinner, they talked in their language, and her partner translated only when she asked. She felt ignored and not part of the conversation. It went on for a long time, and she was tired and almost falling asleep.

Not Wanting a Photo

When the family wanted to take a group picture, she said no because she was tired and didn’t want to be in the photo because she felt conscious about her weight gain. Even though her boyfriend insisted.

His Mom Cried

Despite her boyfriend and his mother trying to persuade her to participate, she firmly insisted on not being included in the photo. Following her refusal, an awkward silence fell over the gathering. Her boyfriend told her, “Thanks, my mum is crying now because of you.”

The family rallied around his mother, offering comfort and eventually, they escorted her out of the restaurant. Apparently, his mom cried because she felt she had upset her.

At this point, she was barely conscious, so she stumbled to the car to have a nap on the way home. Immediately she got home, she went to bed and didn’t have a chance to speak to anyone.

The next morning, she felt unsure about her decision. She usually did things she was comfortable with, not just to be polite. She wished she had joined the photo to make her partner’s mother happy.

One poster thought, “I get it; you’re tired, irritated, and self-conscious, but refusing to take a group photo at a family event that you traveled a long way to attend is just petty. It doesn’t hurt to put what you want aside and do something just to be polite sometimes.”

Another responded, “Hard disagree. She’s not obligated to be in a photo, particularly when she’s exhausted and has been basically ignored for 2 hours. The mom crying is an overreaction.”
