A Michelin-Starred Menu Sparks a Relationship Crisis: Who's the Culprit? 🍽️💔

What was supposed to be a romantic dinner in the city of love, Paris, turned into a relationship crisis over a menu. Our French-American hero and his girlfriend found themselves at odds over a tradition in upscale French restaurants - the man's menu has prices, the woman's doesn't. While he saw it as a harmless tradition, she viewed it as sexism. Despite the delicious meal, the evening ended in silence and the fallout continues months later. Now, he's contemplating ending the relationship as she continues to accuse him of being sexist. Let's see what the internet thinks about this culinary conundrum...🌐🔍

YTA - Refusing to share prices with female clientele is sexist. 🙅

"YTA she felt discriminated and you did not support her. And failed her as a partner. Tradition does not make misogyny ok. These restaurants should adapt themselves to modern society. Not the other way around." 😱

INFO: Who gets the menu with prices at this restaurant? 🤔

RollingKatamari | RollingKatamari

"YTA. She's a bloody adult, she can see the cost of the food she's ordering, even if you are paying for it. It really bothers people to not know the cost of things, and she probably wanted to know so she didn't order like a $1000 dish or something. Oh, and it *is* misogynistic. Just because it's 'tradition' doesn't mean it's good or okay. The reason they give men the prices menu is because way back when, women didn't have money of their own and were assumed dependent on a man. Continuing that 'tradition' today just perpetuates the notion that women have to be supported by a man. It's not a tradition. It's just a remnant of patriarchal misogyny. Would you call it a 'tradition' for a country to not allow women to vote or have jobs, or be doctors or lawyers or engineers, or would you just say it's sexist? 'Tradition' isn't a free pass for d\*\*\*ish behavior." - It's not exactly because of this. The reasoning behind this is : if you're not paying and know the prices you'll end up not enjoying the meal as much because you're either self conscious about the price or think that more expensive meals would have been better. It is sexist to assume that the man is the one paying but in a work dinner only the chief would have had the prices even if said chief is a woman.
