My husband told me why he cheated on me

14.2k Upvotes

It just came to my attention that my husband has been cheating on me on and off for 2 years. He started cheating on me while I was pregnant because I didn’t feel like having sex due to pregnancy symptoms. He cheated on me with two different women. The first girl was a stranger he just met when he was out one night. But there’s this one girl in particular that he keeps having sex with. They’ve been friends with benefits for almost a year now. I asked my husband WHY. WHY WOULD HE DO THIS TO ME. We have a family together, we built a life together, and he threw away 8 years for a girl that hasn’t even graduated college yet?

He said to me, “she’s beautiful. She’s quiet, she’s simple, she’s not annoying. She doesn’t nag me. She doesn’t argue, she’s not combative. She’s not fat and she’s not lazy. She’s fun, she’s spontaneous. I forget about my troubles when I’m around her. She makes my life easier oppose to complicating it like you. She’s just everything that you’re not anymore but you use to be. She’s a younger version of you. She reminded me of you 15 years ago”

I’m honestly still processing. It doesn’t feel like it’s real, I keep thinking I’m going to wake up from this nightmare. I feel so bad about myself. Everything he said to me actually made me feel worse than when I found out about his affair

AITAH for throwing my rings in the ocean after my husband told me he had an affair, even though it was a “prank”.

12.6k Upvotes

This is the dumbest thing that’s ever happened to me in my entire life. This past Sunday, my husband and I (m29 and f27) were on our boat together. We were just relaxing and talking and having a good morning. All of a sudden, my husband gets really serious and tells me “baby, I’m so sorry but I have to tell you something. I’m so sorry, please forgive me, I had an affair.”

For context, my husband thinks he’s a comedian. He says dumb shit all the time but he’s never joked about our marriage or relationship or cheating, ever. The way he said it, I fully believed him.

I was blinded by rage and hurt and I’m not a confrontational person at all so all I did was stand up, take my rings off, and throw them into the ocean. I don’t even know why I did it, it was just the first thing I thought of doing.

My husbands jaw hit the floor. He immediately started to yell at me that it was a joke, a prank, he wasn’t serious and I was an idiot. My jaw dropped then too. I yelled at him too and called him the same. I cried too, realizing I just threw my lovely and sentimental rings into the ocean.

We’ve been arguing for days. He says I’m TA, I say he’s the TA, and I have no idea who’s right. Yes admittedly I threw about 10 k worth of rings into the ocean and we will never find them again- but he looked me in my eyes and told me he had an affair. I am upset about my rings. I’ve apologized for throwing them. But I just don’t feel like TA.

I have two birds, a green cheek conure and a parakeet. They are approved and on my lease. I work from home and they are quiet 90% of the day. They sleep from 9pm to 9am. Sometimes, something will scare them and they will start yelling. I will calm them down, but it can take a minute or two.

I got this note at 2 p.m. today (I heard them put it on my door). I'm pretty sure it is from the old lady across the hall. My conure can be loud, but it's only ever during the day and there's really nothing I can do about their noises. I've lived in an apartment before and the neighbors never complained about anything; in fact, I was friendly with them and they loved getting to meet my birds. What should I do, if anything?

I always see people ask about what people do to earn huge sums of cash, I'm getting 25k and always feel a bit shit thinking I should be earning a lot more. Most jobs I see on indeed are around 25k too.

So, what do you do and how long have you been doing it for ?

New Owner enforced new "No Tattoos - No Exceptions" policy. We just lost our most experienced Machinist.

15.5k Upvotes

Small machine shop, Twenty-two employees, including office admins.

The previous owners retired and sold their stake in the business, and the new owner is knowledgeable about the industry, and actually seems like a decent manager -- he is open to converting to a union shop for the floor personnel, and is generous with employee PTO and leave policy. I actually like this guy.

His ONE problem is tattoos. Employees may not have tattoos for any reason at all -- the only exception he made was/is for medical/radiation alignment markers; I didn't even know those things existed until it was brought up at an all-hands meeting. Otherwise it seems to be an anti-gang thing.

Last October, we passed-over a new CNC operator because the guy had a nice sleeve on both arms. Our loss, right?

This weekend, however, we lost our foreman -- a man with more than forty years of experience as a machinist because he had a tattoo on his arm that he hadn't disclosed, and he had never mentioned it. I didn't even know he had it.

Our new owner called it a "N*zi Tattoo" because it was identical to tattoos the German regime used in the second world war.

The tattoo? His Grandmother's Numbers . The ones she had forcibly put on her body when she was a child in a German Concentration Camp. He wore the numbers to honor his late grandmother, and the horrors she survived before coming to the US.

I am beyond livid at this. Not just for losing our Man, but for such an idiotic reason.

I'm not looking for answers; it's not my problem or issue, and our foreman says he's looking forward to some free time, now, so he's claiming to be happy to be not working. I'm just here to vent, because it seems nobody else at work seems to care. I am just livid over this.

Thanks for listening.
