Man wants 'moment alone' in new home without wife, 'she's being selfish;' AITA?


Fantasizing about purchasing a new home with your partner and making a grand entrace through the doorway together is often a romantic daydream...

So, when a conflused new homeowner decided to consult the moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's Am I the As*hole about house entrance, people were ready to the gossip.

AITA (Am I the As*hole) for wanting to walk into my first home without my wife?

My wife [25F] and I [27M] have been married six months now. I have a good job in sales, and have managed to save enough to get together a deposit for a house. It is true that my parents have helped me out quite a bit too financially.

My wife has not been employed very consistently. She has worked as a model, but hasn’t saved much at all.

I bought the house, and the estate agent handed over the keys to me. My wife wasn’t there at the hand-over. I was obviously super excited to show her the house, and for us to start our lives together.

We drove up to the house yesterday. I said to her while we sat in the car outside: ‘is it OK if I go in alone first, just so I can have a moment alone in my first home?’

I felt that it was a Significant Moment in my life, and I wanted to experience it alone, even just for 30 seconds.

My wife was upset about this and has been off with me ever since. We have moved some of our stuff in but she’s clearly pissed. I think she’s being selfish. My brother says I am being ridiculous.

Of course, the jury of internet strangers were ready to deem a verdict on this one. Here's what people had to say:

YTA (You're the As*hole)...and you know what else? Since it’s YOUR house, you get to do all of the cleaning; maintenance; etc. (She’s just a dumb model so she probably couldn’t figure those things out, anyway.

YTA - why did you get married if you don’t want to experience life with your wife?

YTA. It’s a big moment for you. Probably for her too. Even if it’s not a big moment for her. Sharing in each other’s big moments is usually a big part of marriage. You telling her to wait in the car is a huge and unnecessary slight. Why are you even married if you’re still thinking in terms of mine and yours.

YTA. You keep talking about “my house”, as if you were not married at the time of purchase. It’s your wife’s house too, bro. You are the one being selfish.

YTA. The home is for both of you.

So, there you have it..

Everyone agreed unanimously here that this man was almost impressively, 100% in the wrong about this. Hopefully his wife plans a sweet escape? Good luck, everyone.
