Am I Jerk To Refuse To Take Down My Brother’s Picture In My House After His Girlfriend Asked Me To ?
I(f27) have individual pictures of my immediate family members in my house, including pictures of my brother(m25), our dad, and our mom. I invited my brother and his girlfriend to my house for dinner a couple nights ago, and I showed my brother’s girlfriend around because she’s never been inside my house before.
We came across the picture I have of my little brother. His girlfriend asked me why I had a picture of him, and I said it’s because he’s my baby brother. Why wouldn’t I have a picture of him?. She then told me I had no right to have that picture in my house.
My brother heard us arguing, and came over. We explained the situation and my brother said he was perfectly okay with me having a picture of him inside my house. His girlfriend started throwing a fit on how it “was so damn weird”, and she ended up leaving my house and causing my brother to run after her. So, I’m in the middle of a shitstorm and need some advice on if I’m wrong?
