Is borrowing underwear off-limits in a relationship?
I’d say to each their own and that if the other person is cool with it, why not?
But this isn’t my story…so check out this woman’s current dilemma and see if you think she’s acting like an a**hole for borrowing her husband’s underwear.
AITA for borrowing my husband’s underwear?
“So I (28f) am about 7-8 months pregnant and while I’ve thankfully not gained a lot of weight, my belly has grown a lot and I find that most of my underwear is too small and cuts into my sides/bottom of my belly. After a while I started getting a rash in the places where it was too tight due to friction I guess.
So one day I was getting dressed and I was getting frustrated about the rash and the underwear being too small, so I figured I’d try on a pair of my husbands (29m) boxers. They’re size L and too big for me, but OMG it was the most comfortable thing I’ve ever tried on in my life. Breezy and loose and even the places where I had the rash didn’t hurt. My husband had already left for work for the day, so I decided to just borrow them.
At the end of the day we both come home and I tell him that I borrowed his underwear and asked if it was okay to continue borrowing some until the baby comes (less than 2 months left) or at least until the rash is better. He seemed a bit weirded out but said it was okay.
Fast forward a few days and we’re going to bed and he flips out at me and asks me why I’m wearing his “good” bamboo underwear. I’m confused, but he points at the band where it says bamboo. Then he goes on a long rant about how his few pairs of bamboo underwear are the comfiest and best quality etc etc (I swear this is not an ad for bamboo underwear). I apologized and said I just picked the pair off the top just like I did the other times, but he was upset and said I wasn’t allowed to borrow his underwear anymore.
I said I wouldn’t borrow the ones that said bamboo on them since it bothered him, but he just drew a hard line saying I should go buy bigger underwear for myself and stop stealing his.
Now, I’m thinking this is probably more about how he actually doesn’t want me to borrow his underwear, and he’s using me accidentally taking the “wrong” pair as an excuse, but I’m not sure.
So anyway reddit, AITA for thinking my husband should let me borrow his underwear? Or am I just entitled?
Now take a look at what Reddit users said about this.
One person said if her husband has a problem with it, that’s his problem.
And this individual said some men are just a**holes when it comes to this kind of stuff.
Another Reddit user said she’s NTA and that it doesn’t sound like her husband does much for her…
