They've been through thick and thin, but a recent misunderstanding about having children has sparked a heated debate. The boyfriend, who knew sign language before they met, always tried to be sensitive to his girlfriend's disability. But when the topic of having biological children came up, things took a turn for the worse. 😓💥

A Relationship on the Rocks? 😢💔

This couple's 10-year relationship is being tested by a misunderstanding about having biological children. The boyfriend, who has always been sensitive to his girlfriend's disability, finds himself being called an ableist for not wanting to have children who may inherit her disability. As tensions rise and emotions run high, he leaves the house to clear his head. But will they be able to resolve this conflict and move forward? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐💬
