'My husband kept his micropenis a secret from me until our honeymoon.'

Oh… dear.

Of all the surprises you could be faced with on your wedding night, discovering your husband has failed to tell you he has an, erm, micropenis, probably isn’t one to set your marriage in good stead for the future.

A woman has posted to Reddit with this exact predicament (ahem, no pun intended) and we feel for her, we really do.

Mamamia staff reveal how they lost their virginity. Post continues after.

She posted to the AITA (am I the arsehole) subreddit to ask whether it’s unreasonable for her to be annoyed that her husband kept the size of his penis a secret by refusing to have sex before getting married.

“Newlywed husband (32M) wanted to wait til marriage for sex and just surprised me (27F) with micropenis on the honeymoon,” she titled the thread.

“So, we only dated for six months. We’ve been engaged for another six and just got married on Saturday. I literally just got back from my honeymoon a couple hours ago,” she explained.

“My husband isn’t a religious guy, he just says he is ‘old fashioned like that.’ We got close to fooling around a couple times but it never went far. I tried, but he always stopped after it went ‘too far’.”

Then, she says, on consummating the marriage, she discovered he wasn’t just “old fashioned” – he had actually been keeping a… pretty massive (or minor?) secret from her.


“Am I the asshole for reading into this and being upset that I waited until my wedding night to find out that he probably isn’t as ‘old fashioned’ as he says he is?” she asked the online community.

“I’m not going to shame him and honestly I don’t even know how I’ll broach the topic… I honestly just acted like nothing was out of the ordinary and went to town with him, but… I dunno.

“I kind of feel lied to. Like a half-truth…or something was intentionally withheld from me. This was unexpected, to say the least.”

Oh, we bet.

The woman was adamant the issue wasn’t that her husband actually has a micropenis – the issue is that he kept it a secret, and that he may have been lying about being ‘old fashioned’ because he didn’t want her to know about his penis size.

Which means she unknowingly entered a marriage based on, well, a bit of a lie.

Reddit, understandably so, voted the woman “not the arsehole” for being slightly aggrieved by the situation.

One Redditor called it “a serious trust issue”:

“It’s not the size that’s at issue here, it’s the fact that #1, he didn’t trust her enough to tell her, and #2, now she cannot trust him not to be dishonest.”

Another said: “This was a very deliberate move to keep her in the dark of his ‘flaw’. He might as well have said, ‘I think you are shallow and will leave me for this so I will only reveal it once you can’t leave me’, that is some serious manipulation. Even if he did it to protect his own insecurity, he doesn’t trust her and that is a bigger problem than his… problem.”

And one more added – rather wisely so – “This is why we test drive cars before we sign off on the financing.”

In any case, we wish her luck with the ensuing conversation.

But we imagine it’s going to be… very, very awkward.
