For this family, family get-togethers hold immense significance, but they also conceal a simmering tension that is threatened by Greg’s new girlfriend, who refuses to follow his family traditions.
A Regular Family Gathering
A tense family gathering looms as Greg’s new girlfriend challenges their long-standing traditions.
When Women Are Chefs and Men Are Spectators
At Greg’s family gatherings, the women dutifully prepare the feasts while the men assume the role of spectators, seemingly exempt from the culinary responsibility.
A Girlfriend Caught in the Crossfire
While Greg’s girlfriend initially agreed to attend the dinner, she was upset when she learned about the cooking tradition.
Not the Best Tradition
She wasn’t happy that she would be expected to work in the kitchen with the other women and serve the men.
The Clash of Expectations
Greg understood his girlfriend’s problem but urged her to play along to make a good first impression.
He tried to compromise with her, but she wouldn’t budge.
Do What You Got to Do
Greg thinks that conforming to his family’s expectations would protect her from potential mistreatment.
Playing Along or Standing Tall?
His girlfriend refused to conform and argued that accepting the tradition would condone the inequality of the sexes.

Their attempts to find a compromise failed, resulting in frustration and resentment.
There Are Different Ways to Tackle the Situation
Greg turned to Reddit for advice and was hit with various responses from users, all with differing opinions.
