“She Brought It Upon Herself”: Man Considers Divorce After Wife’s Plastic Surgery

ADVERTISEMENT

Marriages are full of ups and downs. The key is to communicate openly, support each other through the rough patches, and never lose sight of the love that brought you together in the first place.

However, Redditor Throwaway47292693 believes that the spark between him and his wife is gone. In a post on the subreddit r/AITAH, he admitted that he’s already thinking about divorce.

So he wanted to hear what the members of the online community thought about it because the thing that pushed him to the edge was quite unusual.

This man said that his wife got a breast reduction surgery without involving him

And he feels that their marriage will never be the same again

Usually, people get together with someone due to a combination of reasons

Of course, we cannot be certain why the author of the post chose to marry that particular woman. But Julie Beck at The Atlantic reported on a paper, published in Social Science Research, that could give us an idea.

Researchers followed 9,000 young people in middle and high school for 15 years, ending the study when the participants were between 24 and 34. What they discovered was that being a rock star on one trait doesn’t necessarily help you mate, but having a good combo might.

“The only statistically significant interaction was that men with an above average attractive personality were more likely to get married,” Beck explained. “Taking each of the factors individually, no other significant trends emerged.”

“But … three factors in aggregate [looks, personality, and grooming] were linked to [the] likelihood of marriage. Someone who scored more highly on the index overall was more likely to walk down the aisle.”

So the parts where the author of the post confesses that he has a type but the fact that his wife makes the cut isn’t the only reason why he married her might have some truth to them. But again, how much? We don’t know.

Sadly, when it comes to divorce, a lack of intimacy (31%) is a common element.

As people criticized the man, he started replying to their comments

He insults everyone who disagrees with him. If he knows everything, why is he posting this on the internet? He lies to his wife regularly, he is a piece of s h I t. Hope she gets more than half in the divorce

This is the kind of post where OP wrote assuming they'd get approval of their ridiculous behaviour and it backfired on them, big time. Reading their replies to the comments they're definitely on defense now because they know they FU'd, big time. She should be removing the extra tissue in other parts of her life (him) too.

He keeps discounting opinions and insulting people. He is all about himself, the things he is calling people idiots for show who he really is. He is just trying to couch his shallowness in pretty language, when that fails, he attacks. Frankly, what if she had breast cancer or was scarred in an accident, lost a limb, had 3rd degree burns over her body? He makes the claim if it was for back pain he would understand but cos it was because of psychological discomfort she is in the wrong and it's her fault he feels as he does. Makes no sense, physical v psychological are the same, people want cures for either if they can get them. Basically, he is a douche canoe and she is better off without him.

Hes discounting opinion because nearly all of them are ignoring him.bending overbackwards to get used to her sudden changes. I agree psychological discomfort is still a valid reason and he needs to see that; but the fact is the same. She's shooting down every single attempt he's made to ease himself into her severe physical change. He does not blame her for his discomfort, but for putting him into a no win scenario. She changed her body knowing he'd have differebt feelings afterwards. She forced the truth out of that he trued to hide to save ger feelings. Shes not letting him take his own time to get used to her sudden change in body, and is getting angry at him for it.
