The bill reached a whopping 45,600 New Taiwan Dollars.
In every relationship, it is basic to be close to your partner’s family. For men, it is specifically important to be close to their future parents-in-law. This guy wanted to earn brownie points from his future mother-in-law by inviting her to dinner with his girlfriend.
He chose a Japanese restaurant for a birthday treat. But as soon as food was served, his girlfriend’s brother came, followed by a few family members. The Taiwanese man was starting to panic, but soon brushed it off, thinking they will all soon be family anyway.
It was until some of his future mother-in-law’s friends came that he popped. He thought that it was already too much! He refused to pay the bill and was furious at his girlfriend.
His girlfriend’s brother noticed, and decided to pay for the meal instead. Once the couple got home, they started quarrelling and the boyfriend angrily said, “Obviously your family wants to take advantage of me!”
The girl said in her post that she gave 35,000 New Taiwan Dollars (SGD$1,605) on his behalf, which made the boyfriend so furious that he slapped her. The girl shared this story on social media, as she is still having thoughts if she should take him back after giving her an apology.
Other netizens commented on her post and defended her boyfriend, “That bill is seriously too expensive. Since both of you have been together for three years, you should know fairly well about his finances and whether he is able to afford such an expensive meal.
“He already said he wanted to treat your mother but suddenly you brought so many people.”
Some of them said, “Both of them are in the wrong, as they did not communicate well.
“A man should never hit a girl, but the girl should also think on her boyfriend’s behalf and not bring so many people along.”
