A 28-year-old man has been married to his 27-year-old wife for two years. She is currently 6-7 months pregnant. He wants to get a divorce.
“I can safely say that marrying her was the worst decision of my life. I do not like my life, I do not enjoy my life, I hate my life and I think I hate my wife,” he says.
leningradoblast took to Reddit to ask for help with his situation. He wants to divorce his heavily pregnant wife and doesn’t know how to approach it.
Before we start judging him for his actions, let me present his situation to you.
He says that before they were married he and his wife would argue sometimes, but it was infrequent and often resolved in a peaceful compromise. It was after their marriage that things started to turn. The fights got worse to the point where hubby would just let his wife yell at him until she calmed, without him saying a word.
But when they fell pregnant they were really happy. "We were overjoyed. We had always wanted children, and I thought this would be the greatest thing for our marriage, and it would finally turn things around," he wrote.
Unfortunately it only made things worse. His wife has become intolerable.
"She shouts, she throws a fit over the smallest thing. If one thing is out of place, if I am slightly late on washing the dishes, or if a single dish is not properly cleaned, she will raise hell on me," he wrote.
"When she gets like this, she cannot be reasoned with, she cannot be talked to. I can't even try to calm her down, it just makes her worse. At times things have gotten physical," he continued.
The father-to-be says that he believes what he is experiencing is physical, emotional and mental abuse. He feels drained of happiness. He says he now sees his wife as someone to avoid.
