Boundaries are an important part of a relationship.
We should respect our significant other’s boundaries and personal space. If they are not comfortable with something, we should quit doing it. Consent is essential. Do not make fun of your partner’s disabilities. That includes people who wear glasses. They can’t see without their glasses, if you take away someone’s glasses, it’s the same as taking away someone’s wheelchair. See how that makes you a jerk?
Reddit user u/zoroanarchist asked for some serious relationship advice. His girlfriend keeps taking off his glasses without his consent and he is sick of it. Read his story down below:

Here is basically what happened.
He shared how their relationship started, which just sounds like assault to me.
She only has sex with him after taking his glasses off.
When he confronted her about it, she got angry and started fighting with him.
She is taking advantage of his disability.
So she HID his glasses and then broke them one day.
He added more details about him wanting kids with her.
He has to choose either his vision or his girlfriend. Why is this even a question in the first place?
This is how people responded to him.
Lasik isn’t the solution. Dumping his girlfriend is.
He needs to cut her off completely.
He deserves better friends too.
They think it’s okay because she’s hot.
Taking off someone’s glasses without their permission is really upsetting and people need to stop it.
You really can’t salvage this.
It’s okay to take off their glasses only with their consent.
The guy’s self-esteem seems low too.
Run while you can.
You tried to enforce a boundary and she escalated to breaking something that is critical for you to function!
This will happen every time you have a boundary she doesn’t like.
