A WOMAN has revealed that her parents banned her from sharing a bed with her husband when they stayed at their house.
Taking to Reddit, the wife, 24, revealed that her man had been forced to sleep on the sofa because her dad felt ‘uncomfortable.’
Writing in her post, she explained that they had been getting ready to go to their room when her parents began acting “really awkward.”
She wrote: “I asked them what was wrong and my mom quietly told me that my husband should sleep on the couch in the living room. I was a bit shocked because… why?
“Apparently my dad doesn’t feel comfortable. I called her and my dad weird and told my husband to ignore them.”
After settling their own kids down to sleep, the woman’s mum then barges into their bedroom, once again complaining she doesn’t want them in the same room in her house.
She continued: “My husband is freaking terrified at this point because he was in the middle of changing so he leaves for the couch and my mom says she’s sorry but she’s not in the mood to deal with my dad’s complaining all night.”
The woman, who is South Asian, then complained that her younger sister had been able to share a bed with her husband, which is when the truth came out.

She continued: “She (my mum) goes “well… your husband is white so your dad feels weird.” I was over it so I said fine.”
The couple set about sleeping separately to appease her parents, but at 4am, the wife went to get some water, and spotted that her husband was ‘wide awake.’
“He said the couch is uncomfortable as f*** (which yes it is) so I sat down next to him and we both accidentally fell asleep,” she wrote
“I woke up later to my mom freaking out. She was whisper yelling (so she doesn’t wake up my dad) and asked if we’re that codependent on each other that we can’t spend one night alone.
“I tried explaining that it was a mistake but she kept calling me disrespectful and said that I was selfish.”
Finishing her post, the woman asked if she had been an ‘a**hole’ for ‘disrespecting’ her parents – and fellow redditors were quick to reassure her.
Commenting on the post, one wrote: “You are married, you have KIDS, where in the world does your dad think those kids came from!”
Another agreed adding, “What kind of shenanigans is this? I don’t see why your dad has any issues with you sleeping in the same room with your husband.”
“Pack up and head home or to a hotel. Your parents are controlling,” wrote a third.
