A man has been well and truly slammed after having issues with his girlfriend wearing bikini in front of his family.
The boyfriend in question then took to the internet to ask if his demands were reasonable or not and he has since been met with an avalanche of outrage over the 'inappropriate' request.
The matter has also sparked a heated debate online about dating etiquette.
Taking to Reddit, the 26-year-old man explained he and his girlfriend, 22, have been dating for 'around two years now'.
He explained: "We've had our ups and downs but overall we have a great relationship, and I definitely see a future together! "We really love and respect each other and connect well!
"But the thing is we come from different backgrounds."
The man went on to tell his fellow Reddit users that he comes from a Muslim background, noting: "I'm not 'that' religious tho," adding that his partner is 'white'.
"However," he continued, "we have still made it work and our similarities are much more than our differences."
The man carried on: "Now my gf does like wearing a bit short clothing when out and about, which used to bother me at first and made me uncomfortable and we did have a few minor fights over it, but eventually I came to terms with it."
He then opened up about a recent 'embarrassing situation' that happened concerning a party at his cousin's house.
"There was a pool party at my cousin's house, and my parents were there too," the man began, "I had recently introduced my gf to my parents as well, so this was a good time for to meet family and relatives."
The Reddit user then revealed that he 'specifically told her' to pack something 'more on the modest side'.
Explaining his reasoning, the man added: "As my family would be there and most women usually don't wear such revealing stuff in our culture."
According to the boyfriend, his partner 'didn't give much of a response and just nodded'.
He then disclosed: "But what did I see in the pool? Her wearing a two piece bikini (with kinda cheeky bottoms too)!
"Even one piece would've been more better, but nah she went all in this time! She was probably the one the dressed most immodestly."
While admitting that 'no one said anything' about the situation, the man revealed: "I was so embarrassed I couldn't show my face to my parents and all."
He went on to add that he did 'talk to her about it' and 'scolded her a bit' to which she defended her actions.
"She told me 'she can wear whatever the hell she wants, whenever she wants'," the man recalled.
"I couldn't say anything afterwards. We've been quiet to each other for a while but slowly making up now," he concluded.
Some people were left totally shocked by the reveal, with one Reddit user stating: "She can indeed wear whatever she wants and it’s inappropriate for you to dictate otherwise or scold her about it."
Others, however, came to the defence of the boyfriend.
While many called the man 'inappropriate' for his request, one Reddit user hit back, writing: "It's also inappropriate for her to go to her Muslim's bf's families house and disrespect their culture, rules, and religion in their own home."
They continued: "Just because she can wear whatever she wants whenever she wants, doesn't mean it's appropriate to do it wherever or whenever she wants.
"The least she could have done is understand and respected them by at least wearing an oversized t-shirt."
Another Reddit user, who wasn't convinced by the defence, commented: "She was in a pool. You want her to wear an oversized t-shirt? Absolutely ridiculous."
A final person added: "No one in his family said they felt disrespected or like she was being inappropriate," after pointing out the boyfriend was the 'only one' who seemingly had an issue with it.
