A man and his girlfriend have run into a conflict - he hates mornings and she loves making breakfast. He recently asked her to make breakfast for him too, but when she asked if they would trade-off, he said no. She thinks it's unfair for him to expect her to think of him in the morning since he doesn't do the same for her. He thinks throwing in an extra portion of whatever she's already making for herself would take little effort on her part. Who's right in this situation? Read to find out!

Breakfast battles: Is he entitled or just lazy? 🤔

A healthy relationship is built on compromise and mutual respect. But what happens when one partner asks for something that seems unreasonable to the other? In this case, a man has asked his girlfriend to make him breakfast every morning, despite the fact that she already makes a large breakfast for herself. The conflict arises when the girlfriend asks for a trade-off, suggesting that they should both take turns making breakfast for each other. The man refuses, claiming that he cannot muster the energy to cook in the morning, and that it would take very little effort on her part to simply make him an extra portion. Is he entitled or just lazy? Some might argue that if he wants a cooked breakfast, he should learn to make it himself or at least offer something in return. Others might argue that if his girlfriend is already making breakfast for herself, it's no big deal to throw in a little extra for him. What do you think?
