Some men out there don’t get too upset if they get emasculated in front of other people, but there are some who are going to be incredibly offended.
And that’s why a woman took to Reddit’s “Am I The A**hole?” page to ask if she was wrong to emasculate her husband in front of his parents.
Take a look and see what happened…
AITA for ’emasculating’ my husband infront of his parents?
“I(25F) have been dating my husband (30M) for five years and we’ve been married for two. He is very much a traditional ‘man’s man’ but it never bothered our relationship till now so i didn’t care.
2 days prior, he wanted to visit his parents now that we are all vaccinated. He asked me to come too and i complied since ii really enjoy most of his family. We went and had a great time until his father suggested a drinking contest. Basically a family tradition to see who could drink the most cups of watered down beer in a set time.
It’s usually only my father in law, husband, bil, and sil’s husband, this time i wanted to try out too and challanged my husband to one. He laughed and said ok. Well i won and he got very frustrated. He pulled me into a empty room and started saying how i embarrased him and it was ’emasculating’ for him and how i should be sorry.
I told him to not get so serious and left the room. After 2 hours or so of cold stares from my husband, i suggested leaving. He said he wanted to stay at his brother’s house for the day and drove there while leaving me to walk to home.(it’s around 45 mins away walking distance).
I found what he did kinda petty but at night my brother in law calls me, tells me how upset my husband was because i humilated him and made him feel like less of a man. I called my husband and apologized but he has not returned to me since.
So AITA for emasculating my husband in front of around 10 family members?”
Now it’s time to check out the reactions from Reddit users.
This reader made it plain and simple: the husband did this to himself. Ouch!
Another Reddit user said that the husband obviously couldn’t handle his wife being better than him at something…anything, really…
Another reader said that it sounds like the husband has been stunted emotionally and that’s why he acts the way he does.
Lastly, this individual argued that the husband probably needs to see a professional if he’s going to be threatened by something as silly as a harmless drinking contest.
What do you think about what this woman did to her husband?
