The title "Am I The A**hole for making my wife choose between me and her best friend?" immediately evokes a**hole vibes, but the specifics make this man an incredibly sympathetic character. Very sympathetic. He is suffers from a respiratory system and is having surgery at the end of the month.
I [M36] am preparing for my upcoming surgery at the end of may. I have respiratory condition that I have been suffering from and my wife has been very supportive and accomedating of all my needs. She has endured so much by shouldering this burden with me and I can never describe how much supportive she's been with everything that has been going on with me.
The problem is that her best friend's wedding is at the end of may, specifically on the 27th and my surgery takes place the exact same date. Now 27th was not the original date of her friend's wedding it was supposed to be on may 18th but got changed. Her friend informed us about it on short notice. And my wife wanted to go but it's an 8 hour trip since the wedding will be held in the groom's hometown.
