still you didn't need to be so snappy. maybe this is another PMS Fml
Well assuming they never told you, you're not an asshole, but you did overreact for sure . And if they did tell you, then you may need to get your self checked for dementia
Seems like you don't know much about his family either so what are you so pissed about?
I wouldn't expect my boyfriend's mom to remember everything about me. Of course it's nice but one should be able to handle it better than you did. Btw: I don't think I would bitch to my boyfriend about his family because of small things like that - it's really rude. Of course, that his father has dementia makes it worse, but how you phrased everything would still be rude if he didn't.
That's what I was thinking.. When I am with someone.. It doesn't even have to be a boyfriend it can just be a friend and they start bitching to me about my family it makes me feel really awkward and uncomfortable so im wondering why OP would want to put her future husband in that kind of situation
Yea, agree. To be honest, I actually just don't bitch about anyones family members because one doesn't know them as well as the person whose family members these are. The person, most often, either knows that there's a reason for these behaviors (background story) or doesn't want to hear the bad things about family members, which he/she most likely is aware of already. And also, family tend to be the closest thing people have and one should not talk trash about them. I think that unwritten rule has existed like... always.
