Pets are a part of the family.
I know some people do not consider animals as part of the family but I know a lot of people do. It is pretty normal for people to let their pets on the bed. Even I love to cuddle with my kitty while I am sleeping as it always calms me down. However, that isn’t something that everyone would be comfortable with. Even if you give baths to your pets regularly and keep them clean, there is still an issue with hygiene.
And even though I absolutely adore most animals, even I would not be comfortable sleeping with seven pets on the bed. There wouldn’t even be enough space for me so I can understand where this guy’s girlfriend is coming from. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with letting your pets sleep with you but, it isn’t for everybody. And sometimes you have to compromise with your significant other if you want to make the relationship work.
However, this guy is hesitant to do that. You can read the whole story by scrolling below.
I know the title sounds strange but you will soon know what he is talking about.
Their relationship seems quite healthy and it was going great for quite a while.
However, his girlfriend is getting annoyed with his pets because she can’t ever get enough sleep.
He has tried separating them but he is quite used to snuggling up with them.
She wants him to make a decision but he doesn’t know what to do.
I can understand where he is coming from. After all, it is hard to make changes in your life. And expecting someone to stop doing what they have been doing for years is not really so simple. Not only that but, there is nothing wrong with letting your pets sleep with you on the bed. However, there is also nothing wrong with wanting to feel comfortable while you are sleeping and she clearly isn’t getting enough sleep. So they are at a standstill.
People in the comments were quite helpful to his predicament.
Some offered advice for him to follow.
While others told him that he needs to make a decision.
This particular Reddit user had a very good point as well.
They are both right in their own way.
It’s just that their thoughts don’t align with each other.
Some people said that he was completely in the wrong.
And that he should be willing to compromise.
He is simply afraid to change.
He is also being quite indecisive.
And that never helps anyone.
He even admitted it himself.
At the end of the day, they had to end it since their lifestyles just weren’t compatible.
What are your thoughts on this issue? Do you think it was just a compatibility issue and it is a good thing that they ended things? Or do you think he should have been open to a compromise? What would you have done in his situation? Let us know in the comments down below. Also, don’t forget to share this story with your friends so they can join in the discussion as well.
