A Reddit user asked the community if they were in the wrong for asking for their boyfriend’s sister to leave their parent’s house for their date night.
No Quality Time Together
The Original Poster (OP) and her boyfriend (M), both 33, still live with their parents and find it difficult to spend quality time alone together.
An Opportunity Arises
However, last weekend presented an opportunity as his parents were away on vacation.
Planning a Romantic Date Night
They decided to plan a romantic dinner at his parents’ house since it was available.
After shopping for groceries and wine, they returned to the house, excited to start their date night.
However, upon arrival, they discovered that his sister (P), who is 25, had invited a group of friends over for a BBQ in the backyard.
To their disappointment, this was not the quiet evening they had anticipated as his sister had also hosted guests the night before.
OP and M were disappointed when they found out that P had guests over, as she usually works overnight on Saturdays.
Although she claimed she had the day off, they suspected she may have requested it off to take advantage of the empty house.
OP’s boyfriend explained their plans to her, and she reassured them that they could still have their date night in the kitchen without any interruptions as the guests were outside in the backyard.
A Date in the Kitchen
As OP and M opened their wine and started to cook, they found that P and her friends were being extremely loud and frequently coming inside the house to use the bathroom down the hall from the kitchen.
Feeling frustrated and disturbed by the noise, OP went outside to speak with P, explaining that the level of noise was unacceptable as they were trying to have a peaceful date night.
OP requested that she and her friends relocate their BBQ to another location as they were able to host their friends the previous night and this was their turn to use the house.
No Right to Ask
However, P responded with attitude, claiming that she lived in the house and OP was merely a guest, therefore, she had no right to ask them to leave.
Despite OP’s request, P insisted that they could still use the kitchen without any disturbance.
Enough Is Enough
OP and M were both angry and frustrated by the disturbance caused by P and her friends.
After they finished making their dinner, they ate it and OP decided to leave.
P and her friends were still hanging out in the backyard as they left.
On the way out, OP and her boyfriend made a comment to his sister about how it was time to grow up and that she would only understand the importance of having alone time when she was in a relationship.
However, she just rolled her eyes in response.
The next morning, OP received a call from M who informed them that his parents were not pleased.
In response, he suggested that they spend some time at her house until things calm down.
Confused and Frustrated
OP felt confused and frustrated, wondering where they went wrong.
OP and M had planned their date night around P’s schedule, selecting Saturday since she always worked on that day.
Just Not Fair
Furthermore, P had already hosted her friends the night before, so OP couldn’t understand why they were not entitled to use the house for their own date night.
Who Was Entitled to Stay In the House?
The Reddit community came flying in with comments on this thread, writing that OP was in the wrong for making this a big deal.
They said that since they do not own the house, as it’s her boyfriend’s parents, they do not have the authority to determine when people can be there.
They also said that just because the house was supposed to be free, OP and P should have checked with all parties to ensure the house would be free that night and not fight over it during the evening.
One commenter wrote “This OP, can you imagine if you were hosting a party at your house and your sibling’s partner came in and demanded that you and your friends leave? You came into someone else’s home and treated it like your own. If you want your own home, get one. Otherwise, remember you’re nothing more than a guest in your BF’s PARENTS’ home. Not his. His parents.”
What do you think? Was OP in the wrong for telling the sister to leave her parent’s house where she lives?
