An embarrassed woman narrated her ordeal with her husband, who continuously acts like a child whenever they go on outings together.
A woman on Reddit shared the story of her experience with her husband at the grocery store, asking readers if she was wrong to walk away from him.
The woman began her story by saying she understands people go through phases where they pick up certain annoying habits and then need their loved ones to tell them about it.
She said her husband picked up a habit about a year ago, where he talks and acts like a child. Initially, she felt it was funny, but it soon turned into an embarrassing, cringeworthy behavior.
Besides using childish words and terms to describe things around them, he also used silly euphemisms for their genitals and for sex, which the woman did not find sexy or endearing in any way.
The woman further said she and her husband have not had sex for six months because he continues to talk about her breasts, which irritates her.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the couple was out with some friends at a restaurant when the man used his childish terms to make an order. Their friends noticed it, but he continued with his childish behavior, even talking in a toddler accent.
The woman's mother-in-law further told her to be happy her husband had such a midlife crisis and was not sleeping around.
After that incident, the woman found it hard to go out with her husband to adult places and wondered where his behavior was coming from. After a while, she went with him to the grocery store.
While they were shopping, he suddenly gasped like a kid and ran to the ice cream section, jumping and yelling ice cream in a childish voice and accent.
The woman became embarrassed as people stared at her and her husband, but he kept going. She told him to speak to her like an adult, or she would leave, and when he continued, she left the store without him.
Things became intense for the couple at home, with the man demanding an apology from his wife, but she refused. He told his mother about what happened, and she spoke to the woman, telling her the man may be bored.
The woman's mother-in-law further told her to be happy her husband had such a midlife crisis and was not sleeping around with young girls at the local bar instead.
Some Reddit users who reacted to the woman's story said she is not wrong for leaving her husband. One user advised her to sit down and have a heart to heart conversation with him, telling him how she felt about his behavior.
Another reader asked her to encourage him to go to the doctor as he may be experiencing some mental issues he may be oblivious of, while a third person prayed things would work out well for the couple. Here is a similar story about a woman who yelled at her in-laws about some hurtful jokes.
