In a recent Reddit post, a user found herself facing a peculiar situation with her boyfriend. Here’s the full story.
The Loving Relationship
Anna, a 21-year-old woman, and her boyfriend, Mark, have been in a loving relationship for a year. They share a deep connection, and Anna envisions a future together.
However, they face challenges regarding their differing beliefs and perspectives on religion.
Her Boyfriend Was Religious
Mark finds great fulfillment and meaning in Judaism and is currently undergoing the process of conversion.
While he currently leads a secular lifestyle, he plans to follow Judaism more fervently once he completes his conversion.
She Was Secular
On the other hand, Anna identifies as ethnically Jewish but is completely secular.
She Had Doubts
Anna expresses skepticism about the existence of God and holds negative views about organized religion, particularly the rabbinate, the religious authority in Judaism, which she perceives as corrupt.
They Talked About Their Wedding
The story began during a conversation about their future wedding.
She Didn’t Want a Religious Ceremony
Anna expressed her reluctance to have a religious ceremony through the rabbinate, suggesting a civil marriage instead.
He Asked a Playful Question
However, Mark playfully questioned if Anna’s disdain for the rabbinate outweighed her love for him.
She Turned It Back
In response, Anna returned the question to Mark, asking if his love for the rabbinate surpassed his love for her.
He Said He Loves God More
After some hesitation, Mark eventually responded affirmatively, indicating that his love for God holds a significant place in his life.
Anna’s emotional response to Mark’s answer was one of upset and disappointment.
She Expected the Reply
While she recognized the logical aspect of his response given his religious beliefs, her emotions got the better of her.
She Made a Joke
She reached for her phone, played songs that hinted at infidelity and rivalry between individuals pursuing the same love interest and acted jokingly to convey her feelings to Mark.
Her Boyfriend Was Hurt
Although she told him that everything was okay and that she had no right to be upset, her actions left Mark visibly upset.
She Felt Bad
Realizing the impact of her behavior, Anna felt bad about what had happened.
Did the Joke go too Far?
She took to Reddit to ask whether she was wrong for joking and several Redditors said that she was wrong for what happened.
You Asked a Baited Question
One Reddit user wrote, “You sound immature. You asked a baited question and didn’t like the answer.”
Another Redditor commented, “Don’t ask questions you don’t want the answer to. You pushed him into saying it, and now are admitting you have no right to be upset, yet you’re still upset. You did this.”
