So, when a frustrated man decided to consult the moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's 'Am I the As*hole' about an awkward situation with his 'aging' wife (who is two whole years older than he is...IMAGINE) and his brutal rejection of her sexy gift, people were eager to roast him to bits.
My wife is two years older than me. She’s 41 now and I think she knows that she’s been aging. Even though she takes reasonably good care of herself, it’s pretty stark how she looks and how everybody else in our group of mid to late thirties people look.
She must think I’m not attracted to her either. She has a friend who said she would give my wife a discount if she wanted boudoir photos done. My wife went ahead and did them. Yesterday she “surprised” me with the results of them, saying she hopes this “helps.”
I frankly don’t think boudoir photos make her any more or less flattering and a quick glance at them did nothing for me. She kept trying to get me to take them and I finally put the pictures on the couch behind us and told her to stop being desperate and that there’s other ways to deal with a mid life crisis if that’s what she’s having.
To be honest, I hated how desperate she was acting and knew that the pictures don’t do anything for my attraction to her. AITA?
“My wife took fancy pictures and showed them to me, and I called her desperate and attacked her emotionally.” Yeah dude, YTA (You're the As*hole). Let people be happy, especially your wife?
YTA. Wow, you really don’t give a sh*t about your wife do you? She’s clearly feeling self conscious and unloved/ unattractive and you’re clearly going out of your way to reinforce that in any which way you can. Reality check for you: she’s not having a midlife crisis, she’s having a marital crisis that you’re contributing to.
YTA, this is one of the meanest, saddest things I've seen here. Do you even like your wife? I don't even see how you two could come back from this, just the utter flippant meanness and coldness to someone who loves you and is connected to you is awful. Do you look at all women a day+ older than you like this, or just the one you promised to love and care for and treat as a partner?
YTA. This entire post reeks of disdain for your wife whether you intended it to or not.
YTA. Your wife was excited about something that made her feel good, and you displayed nothing but coldness and nonchalance. Why is that, exactly?
Everyone agreed unanimously here that this husband is 100%, completely, fully, and impressively in the wrong here. Hopefully this wife finds someone else who is worthy of her fun photos. Good luck, everyone (except this nasty man).
