Anyway, by the end of the birthday dinner, his girlfriend had eaten a potato taco with guacamole, beans, and rice. Plus, since she had eaten too many chips before the food arrived, his girlfriend wound up bringing her dinner home.
Then, his mother and his girlfriend had a pretty tough conversation afterward. And he claimed neither of them was calm, so he was forced to try and keep the peace.
He realizes that it was too challenging for his girlfriend to calmly explain how the situation felt to her, too. So, he has been feeling pretty torn ever since.
On the one hand, he does not want to be an ableist. Instead, he wants to be accommodating since he believes his girlfriend is the most amazing woman he has ever met.
Yet, on the other hand, he isn’t sure if he wants to continue his relationship if he cannot even go to a restaurant that has vegan options without feeling like he will have to defuse a tough situation.
“And my mom outright told me that she wouldn’t feel comfortable holding a party at her home if my girlfriend had a meltdown,” he vented.
So, despite the fact that his girlfriend is usually level-headed and mature, he’s still been left wondering if he should end his relationship over her behavior.
Is it important for him to feel like he can bring his girlfriend around his family? How could this issue be solved without ending his relationship? What would you do?
