Woman regrets asking husband to grow beard while she was pregnant. AITA?


'TIFU by making/letting my husband grow a beard.'


This TIFU has been 10 months in the making.

I've always hated beards. The look of them, the feel of them, everything. Told my husband I did not under any circumstances want him to grow a beard. Ever. To which he agreed.

Then I got pregnant.

My hormones went wild and when I was about 6 months along, I strongly suggested that he might like to grow a beard for the duration of the pregnancy. He eagerly agreed. The mo, a nice trimmed full beard. I loved every bit of it.

So here we are, 6 months post partum. My hormones have settled, I'm really starting to dislike the beard, and I've asked twice when he might be done with it. He loves it. Wants to keep it. So now I have to deal with this monster I've created.

TL;DR made my husband grow a beard, and now he doesn't want to get rid of it.

Yes, I know it's his choice. Which is why I am not insisting he shave it.

People are reading WAY too much into this. I'm not making him get rid of it, or insisting on it. And our relationship is not in any kind of trouble because of it.

The f*ck up is that I wanted him to grow a beard, and now he really likes it and I don't love it. I still love him, he still loves me. Everything in the world is good.

Here were the top rated comments from readers:


I always teased my wife I was going to grow a beard, her response was the same as yours. I never really never wanted one so it was no big deal. Then COVID hit and I figured I'd grow one just to fuck with her. About a week into it she asked if I was growing a beard, I smiled and said, 'Yup' she rolled her eyes and that was the end of it.

After about 2 months, I got bored of it and shaved it off. After seeing me beardless again, sje said, 'Why'd you cut it off, I kinda liked it'. So I've had a beard ever since.


100% chance he’s getting way too many compliments on the beard to shave it now.


If you dislike the feeling, I suggest recommending a high quality beard regime for him. I've seen people who condition and use oils and their beards end up being super soft and actually pretty nice. If he's going to keep it, he should maintain it to highest degree.


You don't choose the beard, the beard chooses you.


Every time my wife complained about my beard, I offered to shave it and just have a mustache. She doesn't comment anymore.


I had the opposite happen. Had a beard when I met my wife. I shaved it once as a little prank. She made me* swear to never do it again.

(*Requisite internet disclaimer: she didn't really 'make me' do anything; just expressed a preference we both agree on to this day)

So, who is team beard and who is team clean shaven? Also, how does the OP rectify this situation fairly?
