OP (Original Poster) has tried to live with his wife’s temperament for years. However, what she did might be the last straw!
OP has been married to his 26-year-old wife for two years. Instead of being sweet and caring, he said his wife was hotheaded and could be too much when she was mad at him.
Taking Things In
OP always tried to accept his wife’s anger when they were home. He said he would take responsibility for his mistakes—like failing to fill his wife’s car’s gas up after using it or not cleaning the bathroom after a shower.
OP said, “I even stand there and let her unload her anger and frustration on me, but only at home and not in public.” However, their fights have been getting increasingly public, as his wife can’t wait for them to get home before she starts arguing with OP.
Not the Right Place
OP said that recently, his wife has started barging into his office to berate him over things he did or didn’t do the night before.
It’s Affecting My Job!
It’s even more frustrating for OP because it happens in his workplace. Sometimes, he thinks it’s affecting his job.
In his post, he shared, “It’s embarrassing and humiliating and has been affecting my job to the point where I started getting a warning after a warning from my superiors who, I believe, have been very patient and understanding, especially when my wife makes a fuss at the office.”
Sadly, it doesn’t seem like OP’s wife is getting the picture about how inappropriate she’s acting. The week before this story was posted, his wife barged into OP’s office again while he was having a two-hour meeting.
His wife was angry because OP turned his phone off and was not answering her calls. OP said he turned off his phone because he already got warnings about not doing so after his wife told him he was forbidden from turning it off.
OP was left stunned and speechless. He was, after all, in an important meeting with his colleagues, superiors, and potential clients.
He didn’t move or speak while his superior handled the situation and called security on his wife.
When his wife heard his superior calling for security, she started arguing with him and told him that she had come for OP. She then urged OP to get up from his seat and tell security to back off from her.
However, no matter how much his wife had urged him, OP didn’t move. He shared, “I just watched as security escorted her out.”
Getting Kicked Out
With everything happening, OP just felt so ashamed. He said, “It was horrible because I had a fear that my job was lost.”
His wife continued arguing but eventually got kicked out by security. Then, his superiors told OP that his wife was banned from their company and that this would be his “final, last warning.”
Facing His Temperamental Wife
OP apologized to his superiors and left the office. When he got home, he came face to face with his angry wife.
He said she was yelling at him for not doing anything while she was being humiliated and dragged out of his office.
He’s Had Enough
OP finally snapped and said that his wife stepped over the line for barging into his office and risking his job over a couple of missed calls. His wife then started crying and said that he should have defended her while she was being humiliated in front of everyone.
You’re Banned From the Office
He was not letting her tears affect him, though. Instead, he told her not to worry about the humiliation since she was banned from his workplace anyway.
Upon hearing this, his wife got even angrier, left the house, and went to her mom’s house.
The Community’s Suggestions
Redditors defended OP’s actions and said it was not his fault for not wanting to defend his wife. Many of them were even very concerned about how his wife handled things.
That’s a Form of Abuse
Top commenters also wanted to open OP’s eyes to the reality of his wife’s actions.
A top comment was, “Your wife isn’t a hothead; she’s abusive. She’s going to violate that ban and get you fired. You need to get out—these things only escalate.” Another replied, “This is a form of abuse, and I would take this with a strong understanding that things are getting worse. You never show up to a spouse’s place of work like that.”
Maybe It’s Time to Separate
Some Redditors also advised OP to reflect on his marriage and whether it’s worth staying in an abusive relationship.
One said, “You are an abused husband. If you do not have kids, you should cut her loose. In fact, you could change the house locks right now. This would help your ability to keep the house during the divorce. Your divorce papers should be served with a restraining order.”
She’s Abusive and Manipulative
Another Redditor also followed up with what he thinks about OP’s wife.
He said, “You are married to an abusive, manipulative monster. She has no concept of acceptable behavior. What kind of face does she have to show herself in public behaving like this? You are 110% right. Not the a**hole!”
What do you think of how OP’s wife acted? What would you advise OP to do?
