Today, I discovered the terrible things my parents say about my wife while visiting them. They speak in Arabic around us and I've never really been able to understand them. Guess who hasn't only brushed up on his Arabic, but spent the last 6 months teaching his wife. FML

I wouldn’t let on for as long as possible - dig up some pure grade A dirt that will guarantee a huge win come inheritance time 👍🏻

You see this is the moment where I would've said oh yeah in the language to shock them.

!اللعنة لك That means “Fuck you”, and that should be your response next time they say something horrible.

So, why do they speak in Arabic around you? If it's their native language, how do you not understand them? I'm confused. Still, that sucks for both you and your wife.

Put it this way; I’m Croatian simply by blood alone. I don’t speak it, never learnt it.

Sometimes immigrants insist their children concentrate on excelling in English and not learning their mother tongue. It has the added bonus that the parents could have a secret language to hide things from their kids.

It’s also possible to forget a language if you don’t use it daily.

My mom's parents and brother are from Germany, and she grew up speaking German with her family. She never taught her kids German. So when my grandma and my uncle come over, they always speak German to each other but none of us understand them.

On the plus side, you and your wife now have a secret language to use around the infidels to say horrible things about them.

But what exactly did they say though?

Just learn yet another language, so you and your wife can talk shit about your parents in their presence without them noticing. Not French, as they might be able to understand it.

This has more holes than swiss cheese

First sign they were talking shit about you guys is purposely switching to a language neither of you spoke.

Your parents have issues if they don’t like her it doesn’t matter as along as she keeps you happy that’s all that matters she married you not your family
