AITA for "back talking" my cultural influences MIL?
2020.09.29 17:15 tellmemoreplease01AITA for "back talking" my cultural influences MIL?
My husband and I met in college 12 years ago. He is from out of country and was on a visa that permitted him to use our college resources but nothing more. After 4 months of "dating" him, I helped him get a more permanent visa and within 4 years, he proposed. Our relationship is utterly fantastic. Not to sound biased here but holy fucking hell is he the best man I have ever met in my life. Despite me being infatuated and deeply in love with my husband, his mother never approved. She expected her son to divorce me, return to Ecuador and marry a woman who had been promised his hand in marriage. Obviously he refused and made many attempts to get her out here for a visit and see "how wonderful" I am. She finally agreed last summer after 3 years of attempts. He was insanely nervous. Upon her arrival she refused to get in our car, stating that it was "a waste" and insisted on public transportation. My husband rode with her and weirdly enough, his father rode with me. His father is flipping fantastic as well. Super easy going, absolutely hilarious and a real charmer. So, we arrive back home and his mother is nit-picking our house. She says it's too big, too white, the kitchen is too small, the decor is "tasteless", etc. We move on to dinner. She refuses to eat because we made a pork roast and it goes against her culture apparently; yet her husband scoffed it down and asked for thirds! She starts criticizing me for having wine with dinner, stating that alcohol is the work of the devil. It was quite ridiculous. But still, I said nothing. The breaking point? My 47lb ball of fluff, golden retriever comes barreling into the room with my brother who had taken him for the day. MIL goes completely insane. Dogs are the work of the devil, who would have known? She whips out her white sage from her purse and proceeds to "smudge" my house. My dog is following her at this point and she reaches down and smacks my dog on his tail end while screaming about how my dog is attacking her. She then gets in my husbands face and starts berating him for following "the devil's lifestyle" and tells him that he either divorces me immediately OR she would disown him and cut him from her life indefinitely. I lost it a bit. I stood up and said "Get out. Get the fuck out. Wait on the porch for your cab. I will arrange a hotel room for you but you will not be welcome here beyond this point this evening." She looks flabbergasted and then starts berating my husband again for not defending her. My poor husband is standing there like a deer in headlights watching this all unfold before calmly saying "No, mom shes right. You're acting foolish and I think it be best that you take leave." He then apologized to his father who said "I think dinner was lovely." And then turned to me and said "I apologize for our intrusion." I feel like the biggest fucking AH right now. Husband has been silent, obviously distraught. His father has called again and apologized but his mom refuses to speak to her son. AITA?
2020.09.25 02:29 MadeleineDeboisPerfect English-Speaking In-Laws Demand I Speak Spanish Around Grandma
My husband and his family are Mexican. He was born and grew up in the U.S., but his parents grew up in Mexico and moved here later. They all speak perfect English except for the grandparents who still live in Mexico. When I first started dating my husband, his aunt immediately started pestering me about learning Spanish. She told me how easy it was and that if I was to be a part of their family, I needed to learn their language (keep in mind, we had only been dating a few months and also the grandparents visit like once every other year and they are the only ones who don't speak English). I took 2 years of Spanish in college so I could speak with them and I can speak it okay, but I have crippling anxiety that prevents me from being able to speak to others in Spanish. I could barely talk to my classmates in Spanish class, and that's because it was required to get a good grade. I really enjoy Spanish and I wish I could speak it to them all the time, but seriously I get chills, sweaty palms, pounding heartbeat and my mind goes blank every time they try to speak to me. How it usually goes is they will say something in Spanish and I will respond in English, but I never say anything in Spanish except for when saying family prayers. This usually is not a problem except for when the Mexican grandparents come to visit or when they are on video chat. Once the grandparents are present my mother-in-law becomes a different person and demands I speak to them in Spanish even if I have nothing to say. When the grandparents do visit in person, the mother-in-law actually yells at her kids if they speak ANY English and that includes talking to each other and not the grandparents in English. There was once that my husband's uncle was hosting the grandparents for dinner, and as some background information, his uncle did not have his kids learn Spanish, so they only speak English. Well, when one of my husband's cousins was conversing with my husband, my mother-in-law cut her off and demanded she say everything in Spanish. She said, "but I don't speak Spanish," and the mother-in-law replied, "well guess what, your grandparents speak Spanish so you have no choice." After that, the cousin was silent the entire rest of dinner since she knew literally 0 Spanish. My husband got angry at his mom for this, saying that his cousin was not her own kid therefore she couldn't demand her to do anything. My mother-in-law got offended but dropped the matter. That evening I went home and cried since I did not think I would ever be 1. fluent enough to converse in Spanish and 2. even be able to speak because of my anxiety and now I knew for sure that they expected it of me. My husband says that they are being super ethnocentric and that he could care less if I speak Spanish or not, but his in-laws are really intense about it...it's kind of hard to ignore. I don't know why it's so hard to speak Spanish. When I did a study abroad in Ecuador, I actually did speak Spanish, since I had no other choice. Everyone only spoke Spanish, so I felt motivated to learn the language so I could become friends with these people and be able to get around fine. But with my in-laws...I just don't feel any motivation since they all speak perfect English. I guess it's less about the anxiety and more about the fact that they have been pestering me about it and it's expected of me, not because they don't speak English and it would be more convenient if I knew Spanish, but because I feel like they want me to become fluent and then and only then will I be fully accepted as a part of their family. This makes me feel frustrated and like if I could have just been a native Spanish speaker, they would like me more...which is ridiculous! They moved to an English speaking country, but then demand that I speak only Spanish to them...it's just unrealistic. It would be like if I moved to China, had a son and then when said son got married, demand his wife speak English to me. It would just be kind of rude in my opinion and again, unrealistic. I feel undervalued, but also I feel like I can't say anything or resist since I'm white, so I feel like my concerns would just be seen as racist or disrespectful to their culture. Between my anxiety and the fact that I feel 0 motivation to become fluent in this language, I just don't think I'll ever master Spanish. I feel like my reason to learn Spanish for them, would be for the sole perhaps of impressing and pleasing them, and not for any other reason and that just makes me want to learn it less. Should I say something to them? I also don't want to ruin any relationships and make a big fuss when they immigrated here and had to learn English (and English is way harder to learn for non-native speakers than Spanish is for English speakers btw) and had to give up parts of their culture to live here. At the same time, I have no reason to learn Spanish except for occasional talks with my husband's grandparents. Am I being ethnocentric? Racist? Insulting to their culture? Maybe I'm super privileged because I only ever had to know one language. What do you think reddit?
2020.09.21 19:12 check_mate215The first person I fell in love with (23 F) broke up with me (20 M) and I just want to share our story.
Hi there. I'm not sure what's pushing me to share this, maybe it's for closure to help me move on from this, not entirely sure really. It's been two weeks and it's honestly one of the hardest experiences I've ever been through and I just realized just how long this whole thing got, I apologize for that. Whoever you are, I sincerely appreciate you taking some of your time to read this. I guess to start off with some context, I moved to America last year with help from my family (I'm from Ecuador) and I managed to settle down by myself. I currently live with one roommate in a small house somewhere in NC. I used to work in a supermarket as a cashier since last year's August until around last April. It was honestly a pretty crappy job that paid dirt considering all the hours I worked and the rough schedules they gave me. I had very little money for a reason I'll briefly explain later on. Anyways, I met this girl there in the beginning of December of last year, she's this gorgeous blonde girl with silver blue eyes and she loves wearing boots. Because of how I used to work mostly overnight, I only met her there twice. I got so lucky, because I just happened to get the first shift that morning and she was called in by our crazy boss at the last moment, and ever since we met, we felt the immediate chemistry and we were talking so much during that shift, our manager kept trying to keep us quiet. We were always joking about how Eddy (the manager's name) used to be the ultimate mastermind preventing us from meeting each other, it was funny. Before she left for the day, I mustered up all of my courage to ask her out to get some coffee and get to know each other, to which she agreed and handed me a piece of paper with the number on it. It was the first time I ever asked a girl out and I was amazed and kind of proud of myself. We went out on our first date in January since she first had to go back to her family's house for Christmas back in Indiana. We spent nearly four hours just talking and pouring our hearts out to each other, neither of us had any idea how much time has passed nor did we really care. During the end when we left the coffee shop, I remember being too shy to even hold her hand when she hinted me to do so. I admit I'm quite the introverted guy, but then again no girl has ever wanted to get this close to me so I wasn't sure what I was doing. Before we said our goodbyes, we just kind of stared at each other, which honestly felt like hours, and we gave each other a small kiss. I was dumbfounded by how well that first date went and I was very much looking forward to the next time we'd go out again. After around three dates that same week, she invited me to her apartment for the first time. She lived with three other girls and I met her little dog named Dory and she instantly liked me which was quite lucky. My ex loved dogs and we went out to give her a walk and we got very personal with our conversations. Everything just felt so right with her, we were holding hands despite the freezing wind and kept staring at each others eyes frequently. She told me how she was flying to Hawaii this August to study and become a veterinary pharmacist. I learned that she has severe anxiety and tends to have very depressive episodes and panic attacks, and her dog is officially her service dog to help her cope, but despite these issues she pressed on and seemed so passionate about helping every animal she could, it was pretty inspiring to hear her talk. When we got home we kissed some more and poured out more of our feelings to each other, it was honestly surreal and magical. However, somewhere during our deep conversations she asked me when I'd like to go out again, and in that moment I remembered that during this whole week I wouldn't have any money to spend outside. To explain it briefly, I got most of my money stolen last year (this happened before I met her and it's not something I like to talk about) and I've been trying my hardest to recover from the loss, but all I had was what I got from my job that barely gave me enough for my rent, gasoline and food and I couldn't find anything better for a while. I had no choice but to reveal my situation to her and admit that I probably wouldn't have enough money to buy food for myself that week. She immediately took me to the nearest Food Lion and bought me more than enough groceries to last the whole week before I got my next paycheck. Every date we had together she was aware that I didn't have much money on me and she'd constantly bring me more snacks and never has she ever resented or belittled me. This was probably around the time I was starting to fall in love with her. We already made it official before this, but just to learn how much she was starting to care for me and how fun it was to hang out with her... it's something I never experienced before, and I knew it wasn't some high school crush that I was feeling. I knew right away I fell hard for this woman. A few more months have passed and one day she told me how she was going back home to visit her family for a week. As all of you know, between the months of February and March is the time when Covid-19 started to become a big deal, and quarantine was just getting started. As soon as she got home, she explained how NCState was switching to online classes and that she'll be staying there for good to finish her classes there and leave to Hawaii in August. We already knew we were eventually going to be in a long distance relationship, and we thought that it was ok if it was going to start earlier than we thought, and we'd continue to date. I helped take in her stuff that she left in her apartment back to my place and got to know her best friend in the process. She told me how she would be visiting in June to pick up her stuff and I decided to throw her a surprise reunion with her closest friends at a park with cheesecake (that's her favorite food). Fast forward to that day, she came to my house and I told her that I loved her for the first time. She told me that she loved me during the phone before she visited, but she wanted me to wait to tell her in person. We then packed up up her stuff and we went to meet her friends. The day went very smoothly and she seemed very happy before we said our goodbyes. To this day I'm still surprised how I managed to push this and get to know her friends, I probably looked nervous still, but I did what I could and I have no regrets. Time has passed, we've had very emotional days where she would get very stressed and anxious about school work and Covid-19 worrying her, She would have the occasional panic attacks and I would try my best to support her and learn more about her condition, even if I myself cannot experience what she's going through. We talked every day and always kept each other updated with the more important stuff. Eventually I ended up proposing to move to her same city in Hawaii next year and start studying with her there. She thought it was a good idea at the time and agreed that we could have a future together, I had a lot of hope for us. She later told me I should go visit her and meet her family at her home in Indiana and I was down with the idea, but the only time I could go was just before she were to leave to Hawaii in August. Nevertheless, I took my chances and booked my flight to go see her. Towards the end of July, I was about to go on my flight, when all of the sudden she received news that Dory might not be able to make it to Hawaii with her. She became extremely anxious and her mom was doing her best to help her out. Unfortunately due to this and other factors that I won't get into I wasn't able to go see her before she left and I had to cancel my flight. This was our first real argument, which in hindsight, I regret having said some immature stuff and not take more into consideration her situation, but I apologized and we were able to move on from this. When she arrived in Hawaii, she told me how she wanted me to move in with her, which I thought would take her longer to consider, because she lived with an ex at one point and regrets having done so, so I was not in a hurry at the time. I agreed and started thinking of all the possibilities and dreams we could accomplish together. I always wanted to have a lot of pets in my household, and we'd always joke how we'd eat peanut butter with all of our dogs (I LOVE peanut butter). It just felt right to go for it, I'm aware I'm still young, but at the time I could imagine my future with her and get through any internal issues. However, not long after she said this, she realized how I haven't made any friends here in NC and started to become afraid about how she would ruin my life if I moved there and it didn't work out and I'd be all alone in Hawaii. I thought it was ridiculous at the time, but she became afraid and didn't want me to make a decision this big just yet and told me to wait another year before doing so (I was planning to move next January). Now that I think about it, it made total sense for her to be afraid, but I always thought how it was just a little strange of how suddenly she changed her mind about this when she was the one to propose this idea in the first place. We fought back an forth about this and we definitely made some mistakes from both sides, but in the end I agreed to wait longer and we apologized. After that day was around the time when everything started going downhill. Once she moved into her new apartment there, she was clearly stressed out and we were constantly arguing about little things, some her fault, others clearly mine. I realized how insecure I could be at times and I wanted to do better for her, also knowing how hard for her the mental issues could get. Nonetheless, after her new semester started and living in her apartment without AC (a major cause of her stress at the time), she told me she needed her space after we've had another argument, I wasn't sure at the time what that meant and I was afraid of what she would do next. Deep down I knew this was the beginning of the end, but I couldn't accept it, all I could do though was wait for her to talk to me again and see what happens next. A week later, she messaged me again about how the next day she wanted to have a discussion after finishing up some important stuff that she had to do. Keep in mind how before this, we texted each other every days and called often, so I wasn't used to not hearing from her for this long. I was terrified, and I was trying to emotionally prepare myself for what was about to happen. It's the next day, September 5th, she explained how things got pretty negative between us, and was aware it was both our faults that it was so. She knew I had very little experience with dating and how she was in such a bad place mentally an physically, so in her own words, she cannot commit to me in a way that I deserve, and that we should no longer be a couple. We should instead take our time to heal and try to be friends. This was the first time I experienced heartbreak and I couldn't describe to you how it feels. I immediately broke down and felt myself sinking lower and lower, thinking this was all my fault and I should've done better, but only now I see this was far from the case. We called each other one last time and I was still sobbing, which was a bit ironic since she always claimed how she was the crier, I never heard her cry once though. She was no longer happy, she wanted both of us to move onto the next stage of our lives and she wishes nothing but the best for me. I've had my fair share of challenges in the past, definitely during my days in high school, but never have I ever felt so defeated and broken. She told me how she was sorry and that she loved me. This is probably the last time I'll ever hear her say this. At least my family and friends had my back to help me through this. Even if they're far away from me, they're the reason why I never felt alone in the first place. Here I am a little over two weeks of depression later, now I have the gumption to type this down and talk about my situation. I'm feeling a little better now, and I can actually work normally again and start doing other stuff I've been meaning to try out, like going to the gym and learning Japanese. I don't have a clear objective with telling the story of my first love. I don't know what I would gain from doing this. I just feel the need to talk about this. I don't know what I could've done different, if I could change anything to make this work. Maybe I never stood a chance, from this being a long distance relationship. Maybe it was due to how emotionally unavailable she was and how inexperienced and young I actually am. I don't know. It's probably not worth to think about anymore. I have many regrets, but I had a great time with her, and many happy memories especially during this difficult time. I'm trying my best to move on from this. I don't know if I see myself become her friend sometime in the future, but I have plenty of time to decide. I'm not the most mature guy, or the most selfless or smartest. I know I'll meet a lot more people in the future, especially when I start college. Someday I'll be able to move on from this. This is my journey after all. Thank you for reading this. I don't know if you'd gain anything from doing so. If you have a SO, treat them well, no matter the distance or how emotionally different you both are. Keep the communication strong and approach any conflict in the most mature way possible. Love each other with everything you got. I suppose that's the moral of this story.
2020.09.16 21:34 SoloTravelModsANNOUNCEMENT: Upcoming AMA with Kyra from the No Country for Moving Podcast on SEPT. 23
Hello everyone! We are very excited to host solo-traveling badass Kyra for an AMA on Wednesday, September 23 (an earlier version of this had the wrong month, sorry!). Please see her introduction below:
Hello solotravel! My name is Kyra, and I'm the 34 year old SOLO BLACK FEMALE traveler, who calls Brooklyn her home. Although these days, most of my travel has been stateside, I always aim to take a good walking tour along with a deep dive of the history of every space, city and locale that I frequent. I'm a passionate urbanist who enjoys creating spaces in the arts and culture with a social justice framework and through the elevation of unheard voices of marginalized communities. Case in point, I started a podcast called @nocountryformoving. On my podcast, I interview immigrants and migrants from across the globe about their story, political and socio-cultural differences between their native country and their host country, and even what it's like to date outside of their culture! What is driving this AMA is that I have been traveling solo since I was 20. First to my parent's motherland of Ghana, and then to countries such as Morocco, Argentina, Spain, Colombia, Ecuador, India, and the list continues! Each time I have traveled solo, I received similar responses from friends and family, " Are you traveling with friends? Why not choose another country to go to? Are you sure that is a good idea? And each time my response was adamant, "I'm going and I will be safe." Of course, sometimes I wasn't that safe or made the best decisions, but I learned from them, and one thing that I was very sure about was that I needed to share my story and experiences with whomever I could so I could become a resource to the community as well. As a single Black woman, there have been a lot of insurmountable obstacles that I have faced that should be shared and learned from and I'm ready and willing to do that with you! My travel timeline for reference:
May-July 2008 - Ghana
April - August 2010- India
September 2010- July 2013 - Madrid, Spain
July 2013 - August 2016 - Buenos Aires, Argentina
Patagonia, Colombia, Ecuador April - October 2016

Getting lost in Las Fallas
Being denied entry on the Moroccan and Spanish border
Chamuyando (charming) my way back into Argentina after a return flight from America

Check out my travel content via: Instagram Facebook Join me for the AMA and follow up by listening to my podcasts @nocountryformoving on iTunes and Spotify and follow on IG @nocountryformoving and Facebook for stories of immigrants, travelers, and people like you. When you do watch an episode, please #nocountryformoving and reference the episode as well as @kymab on IG. Do not hesitate to ask me all of the questions, no matter how creepy or off-putting or uncomfortable. Since I'm gainfully fun-unemployed, I'm overeager to answer your questions. So get at me here, IG or Facebook. PSA: I'm doing this AMA to dispel the myth that Black women do not travel and to provide an entrance into a door of a Black female travel experience. Representation matters! PSA2: I'm open to collaborations in the future around my podcast, so slide into my DMs or PMs. Fun Fact: this photo is my birthday weekend over a 10 ago prior to my bed bugs debacle in Essaouira, Morrocco.
We're going to start collecting questions now, so for anyone who's not sure they'll be able to make the AMA in real-time, please post your questions below and we'll move them over to the AMA on the day of. In the meantime, you can check out Kyra's podcast here
2020.09.16 04:23 PureChampionAm I overreacting, or did my boyfriend's family sabotage my proposal?
My(25/m) boyfriend (26/m) and I recently celebrated two years of our relationship and I had come to a decision that I want to become engaged to him and plan to spend the rest of my life with him. From the beginning of the relationship he let me know that his family is very Mormon and Latino and that they are not very accepting of same gender relationships. I understood this coming from a Catholic Latino family and assured him that whatever involvement they were going to have would be okay. About 6 months into the relationship and the whole family seems to be very welcoming. They invite me over for dinner and I get the feeling that they really like me, my boyfriend tells me that they've never wanted to meet or know any of his past boyfriends. He has a brother (23/m) who recently returned from his missionary trip in Ecuador and a sister (25/f), both who seem like they really enjoy my company and are accepting. His dad (50/m) speaks very little English but he make sure to always shake my hand whenever he sees me and his mom (49/f) kisses my cheek whenever she sees me. At this point I feel totally welcomed by this family. Fast forward to about May of this year when I decide to buy a ring after our 2-year relationship milestone. I reach out to his brother and sister and let them know about my plan to propose in October when we go on vacation to Orlando. I let them know that COVID might put a damper on it but I was going to propose whether I could make it out to Orlando with him or not. The brother replied saying that he was excited and gave his blessing for us because we made each other happy. His sister did not reply, which I thought was weird, but I let it go. Now, in September, I am finding out that his brother who has been dating this girl (26/F) he met in Ecuador for less than a year through a long distance relationship is planning on proposing to her in October. Not only in October, the very weekend before I told him I was going to propose. Also, I have been saving and scrounging as much money as I can to make the trip that we go on with my cousin and her husband very fun and a happy day for us all considering it's going to be where I propose to him. Yet they invite him to go to New York to ask the girl's dad for her hand in marriage. They tell my boyfriend they'll pay for his whole trip, and at the last minute ask him to pay his way. He feels bad because they've already bought the plane ticket and he doesn't want to cancel. So now we have to dip into the funds that I had set aside for Orlando to send him to New York randomly when that was not the plan. Now with the sudden loss of some of the money I've been saving for Orlando and the fact that planning his proposal the weekend before mine will affect my plans to make our proposal special, I'm at the point where I'm ready to cancel the whole trip and push the proposal out to a different date. My cousin is mad for me and thinks that this is some blatant disrespect on their part. Part of me wants to argue in their defense that they don't know our finances so they couldn't possibly know that this New York trip is affecting our Orlando trip, or maybe it's not a big deal to them to have a proposal right before another one. The other part of me just sees it as rude and disrespectful, although it's hard for me to contemplate this because they've never been anything but nice to me. I wanted to reach out here to get an unbiased opinion, let me know what you think! Thank you for taking the time to read this super long essay lol! TLDR: my boyfriend's brother is planning his proposal to his long-distance girlfriend, who he has been dating less than a year, the weekend before I told them I was going to propose.
2020.09.15 21:41 PureChampionWere my (25/m) plans to propose to my partner (26/m) ruined by his family?
My boyfriend and I recently celebrated two years of our relationship and I had come to a decision that I want to become engaged to him and plan to spend the rest of my life with him. From the beginning of the relationship he let me know that his family is very Mormon and Latino and that they are not very accepting of same gender relationships.

He has a brother (23/m) who recently returned from his missionary trip in Ecuador and a sister (25/f), both who seem like they really enjoy my company and are accepting. His dad (50/m) speaks very little English but he make sure to always shake my hand whenever he sees me and his mom (49/f) kisses my cheek whenever she sees me. At this point I feel totally welcomed by this family. Fast forward to about May of this year when I decide to buy a ring after our 2-year relationship milestone. I reach out to his brother and sister and let them know about my plan to propose in October when we go on vacation to Orlando. I let them know that COVID might put a damper on it but I was going to propose whether I could make it out to Orlando with him or not. They both replied, the brother saying that he was excited and gave his blessing for us because we made each other happy. His sister did not reply, which I thought was weird, but I let it go. Now, in September, I am finding out that his brother who has been dating this girl (26/F) he met in Ecuador for less than a year through a long distance relationship is planning on proposing to her in October. Not only in October, the very weekend before I told him I was going to propose. Also, I have been saving and scrounging as much money as I can to make the trip that we go on with my cousin and her husband very fun and a happy day for us all considering it's going to be where I propose to him. Yet they invite him to go to New York to ask the girl's dad for her hand in marriage. They tell him they'll pay for his whole trip, and at the last minute ask him to pay his way. He feels bad because they've already bought the plane ticket and doesn't want to cancel. So now we have to dip into the funds that I had set aside for Orlando to send him to New York randomly when that was not the plan. Now with the sudden loss of some of the money I've been saving for Orlando and the fact that planning his proposal the weekend before mine will affect my plans to make our proposal special, I'm at the point where I'm ready to cancel the whole trip and push the proposal out to a different date. My cousin is mad for me and thinks that this is some blatant disrespect on their part. Part of me wants to argue in their defense that they don't know our finances so they couldn't possibly know that this New York trip is affecting our Orlando trip, or maybe it's not a big deal to them to have a proposal right before another one. The other part of me just sees it as rude and disrespectful, although it's hard for me to contemplate this because they've never been anything but nice to me. I wanted to reach out here to get an unbiased opinion, let me know what you think! Thank you for taking the time to read this super long essay lol! TLDR: my boyfriend's brother is planning his proposal to his long-distance girlfriend, who he has been dating less than a year, the weekend before I told them I was going to propose.
