To think this is a bit disrespectful?

If an adult child brings their SO to visit their old family home, and in full view of their parents and siblings, start to kiss passionately? It was so uncomfortable I had to leave the room.

That's grim. Totally inappropriate in front of anyone.

PDAs are gross anyway.
Peck on the lips, holding hands etc is fine
Full on make out session? Unnecessary.

Very disrespectful.

Jericoo Fri 30-Oct-20 18:07:43

Thank god I'm not alone in thinking this! I could see how uncomfortable others looked but no one else left the room, so I thought maybe I was overreacting.

YANBU that behaviour is juvenile and cringe worthy

MustardMitt Fri 30-Oct-20 18:09:26

Full on snogging in public is acceptable only with randoms in a bar grin

Are you a sibling? Who initiated the snogging?

Jericoo Fri 30-Oct-20 18:13:07

Yes I am a sibling. It was my sibling who initiated the kissing with their SO. I honestly feel a bit nauseous.

I'd be telling your sibling to grow up.

AriettyHomily Fri 30-Oct-20 18:15:05

Urgh. They need to grow up or are they actually 15?

BritWifeinUSA Fri 30-Oct-20 18:15:13

How old are they? 15?

Jericoo Fri 30-Oct-20 18:15:46

It's my parents I feel for most, I can't imagine what they were thinking

PDAs are eww anyway , why do they think anyone wants to see that .
Get a room would of sprung to mind in disgust. What did you say ?

JesusInTheCabbageVan Fri 30-Oct-20 18:16:38

Console yourself with the thought that one day they'll look back on this and shrivel up with embarrassment grin

Oh Christ! 30’s ?? What the hell were they thinking ..

WitchesSpelleas Fri 30-Oct-20 18:19:15

I wouldn't say it was 'disrespectful'. Childish and embarrassing perhaps but not sure how it indicates lack of respect.

Jericoo Fri 30-Oct-20 18:21:26

I just left the room, @islockdownoveryet. I'm not very good with social situations either so I didn't know if I was overreacting

Haha how cringey . I would have told them loudly to stop it ! And probably laughed at them.

Jericoo Fri 30-Oct-20 18:23:15

I called it disrespectful because surely if you enter your parents' home, you should act accordingly? I wouldn't sleep with someone whilst staying in my parents' house, and I wouldn't kiss them in front of everyone either. But I am a prude grin
