He is 19. DH thinks he should have voted remain like him (DS voted leave) because he still lives in our house. AIBU to think that DS is an adult who can vote what he likes and DH is being silly?

ps. Sorry for banging on about the referendum still, please hide this thread if it annoys you.

Ok, I accidentally posted twice, no need to reply to this thread. MNHQ can probably delete it.

We are free to vote as we see fit in this country. Individual choice, individual business.

People can vote as they see fit. However, saying that, if one of my children voted BNP or EDL or such like, they could find themselves alternative accommodation.

So the question is OP, how much does it bother your dh? If you're both Polish and likely to loose your right to work in the UK, or he's likely to lose his job due to this I can see why he's pissed off.

YANBU. DH is silly and doesnt understand the concept of a free and private vote.

Your DH is how old? must be at least late thirties. and he can't deal with a political disagreement?
While I (Voting wise) agree with your DH (ie I voted remain) he's still being a cunt. Tell him to grow up.

Wait a minute, your DH thinks that because he financially supports your DS he should get to control his vote? shockshockshock

I assume that if/when you were a SAHM he controlled your vote too?

We have a secret ballot for just this reason.

If I were your son I'd be looking to move out ASAP. What else does he think he should control?

Buy your DH some history books OP.

bar losing their jobs because they're polish ? hmm do you have a hot line to the brexit effect or is this more fb crap mongering ?

My DS is also 19. We wouldn't dream of telling him how to vote. And how would your DH actually know what your DS put on the ballot paper even if he tried to control it? Your DH is being unreasonable.

<<bar losing their jobs because they're polish ?>>

Read what I wrote again mrsfuzzy I outlined a couple of scenarios:

One was that the dh was Polish and might lose his right to work in the UK (lot of Polish people are worrying about this right now).

The second was that he was at risk of lose his job due to Brexit (I lost 1/3 of my hours last week due to the leave vote, reality not scaremongering unfortunately).

You are the one that conflated the two.

thanks bar i get it now, but there is no certainty of anything yet, i can understand people are concerned but life has to go on in the mean time, other wise we might as well all lay down and give up.

Bar, to be fair to mrsfuzzy, your post does read like he could lose his job because he is polish.
