Grieving is a difficult process that requires patience and care from one's partner, but is there a point at which it becomes obsessive and, for lack of a better term, f*cked up?
A pregnant wife posted on "Am I The A**hole?" asking if she's a heartless jerk for not letting her husband name their baby after his dead best friend. A baby name is a big deal, and she's worried about her husband's well-being and the pressure it could put on the child.
She opened by explaining the circumstances of the tragic death and her husband's grieving process that's been a bit............strange:
My husband and his late best friend “Tom” (not a real name) had been friends since childhood, they were extremely close. Tom died due to a parkour accident. Tom was an amazing person, he was incredibly kind and warm-hearted and if the circumstances were different I’d absolutely want to honor him.
