In a recent Reddit post, a young man asked whether his decision to inform his girlfriend’s mother about her religious beliefs was justified or if he indeed acted out of line.
His Girlfriend Became an Atheist
Omar’s girlfriend was raised in a religious environment, but she began to have doubts about two years ago. She doesn’t dislike her religion; she just didn’t feel it was a good fit for her.
She Kept It a Secret From Her Mother
She was an atheist when they first met and had doubts for around five months before deciding to become an atheist.
She kept it a secret from her parents as she didn’t want them to know.
Things Took a Turn
Things took a turn at the beginning of the week when Omar and his girlfriend visited her mum. She approached them and asked who Omar was since they hadn’t met before.
He Told Her Her Daughter Was an Atheist
Omar’s girlfriend was stuttering, and then Omar took matters into his own hands and told her mother that he was her boyfriend and that she was an atheist and no longer part of their religion.
They Were Shocked
Both Omar’s girlfriend and her mother were shocked.
He Gave His Reasons
His girlfriend asked why Omar said that. He told her that it’d been a while since she decided she wasn’t following her religion and that they had been together for so long.
He thought that she no longer had to wait since she wasn’t worried about her parents.
Her Mother Said It Was Okay
Her mother was astonished and said it would take some time for her to process it, but that it was okay and that she was just glad her daughter was happy.
Omar’s girlfriend and her mum went away and started talking. So Omar believed that everything worked out well.
She Said He Was a Jerk
However, later his girlfriend messaged to let him know that he had crossed the line and his behavior was inappropriate.
She told him she would tell her parents privately when she was prepared. She claimed that he was a jerk and that he was unreliable.
Later, her siblings and friends messaged Omar to say that he was a jerk who couldn’t control his mouth.
He Was Out of Line
Omar took to Reddit to ask whether he was in the wrong for what happened, and more than five hundred comments poured in saying that he was wrong.
A Reddit user wrote, “Hopefully, you are about to be the ex because you were so far out of line. You completely steamrolled your GF’s boundaries and made a decision you had no business making.”
“You are incredibly fortunate it’s turning out all right because it could have gone very badly with her family disowning her or worse.”
