This one just sounds weird to me…
But, as I’m fond of saying, to each their own…
Still, the point of these articles from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page is to find out whether these folks are totally out of line.
So you’re gonna have to read the whole article before you can make up your mind.
Go ahead and take a look.
AITA for telling my girlfriend it’s weird that she wants to name our son after her d**d ex boyfriend?
“My (31M) girlfriend’s (30F) ex boyfriend passed away 7 years ago from sickle cell disease. They shared a son together who is 9 years old, I adore him and look after him like he’s my own.
As for us, we began dating 3 years ago and everything has been going really great. She is currently 6 months pregnant, we are having a boy. We’re both really excited but there is tension between us because she suggested that we name our son after her ex boyfriend.
Which I instantly said no, that’s definitely not happening. So she then asked if it could be his middle name then because it would mean a lot to her. I told her it’s extremely weird because our kid has absolutely no relation to her ex boyfriend and it’s offensive to me to have OUR son named after a d**d guy that she use to date.
She got all sh**ty with me and said I was disrespectful and wasn’t taking her feelings into consideration blah blah blah and then told me to remember “that d**d guy she use to date is the real father of her son.” I don’t think it was fair to rub that in my face. So now we’re both pissed off with each other.
I genuinely think it was out of line for her to even ask me that not to mention inappropriate.
Now take a look at what Reddit users said about this.
This reader said that the man’s girlfriend is actually the a**hole here.
And another individual said she definitely turned into an a**hole as this situation progressed.
And this reader said that she probably shouldn’t be in this relationship if she still feels so strongly for her ex who passed away.
What do you think?

Thanks in advance!
