A Muslim man's wife with tattoos and piercings was scrutinized by his brother and sister-in-law. When the brother barged into their bedroom and saw the wife getting lotion applied to her back tattoo, he demanded that the wife cover herself up. The man defended his wife and refused to apologize for his wife's appearance. The man's parents and brother are demanding apologies from both him and his wife. The man stood up for his wife's right to dress as she pleased, despite her tattoos and piercings. In an update, the family dinner with his parents, brother and his wife didn't go well. The family was judgmental towards his wife, and the man finally snapped back at his parents. The wife left, and the man said he no longer wants to see his family until they apologize and treat his wife like family.

Awkward family visit leads to wife's appearance being criticized.
