So. Imagine this.
It’s your sister’s 30th birthday and you’re celebrating with a weekend out of town with her and her best friend.
You tell your husband (let’s pretend you’ve been married for about a year, but have known each other for four), and he’s not happy. Your sister and your best friend are single, and he says “it doesn’t look good”.
LISTEN: This woman’s ex husband is now cheating on his mistress with another girlfriend. Should she whistleblow or walk away? Post continues after audio.
You fight. He says you don’t, and can’t understand. You try and compromise, so he gives you three rules which are:
- Text him your plans for both days and update if anything changes.
- Let him randomly check in with you, and you have to answer his calls or respond to texts within 10 minutes.
- Skype from your hotel room at midnight, both nights.
There’s been no history of cheating, or anything to warrant this behaviour, but it is the first time you’re travelling without him during the four year duration of your relationship.
What do you do?
Reddit user Vveeee is not so sure.
Posting the question onto the online forum, she says she's "kind of offended," and "understand[s] him having concerns," but feels he " isn't handling it appropriately."
Vveeee's post has already gained over 400 comments in two days, with most questioning his behavior, labelling it controlling, and disrespectful.
