A woman turned to Reddit to voice her frustration after feeling like she embarrassed her husband in front of his friends when he asked her to get her best friend to move out of their home.
The Happy Couple
Suzanne has been married to her husband for 6 years.
They met a few years back when their best friends started dating, which led to their friend groups joining together.
Suzanna and her husband have a 6-month-old daughter, and her wealthy father will provide financial support until their daughter reaches school age, after which she plans to work for her father’s company.
Spending Time With His Buddies Everyday
Suzanne’s husband works a 7am-4pm job and often spends time with his friends in their house or one of their homes after work.
Suzanne has been close friends with her friend Amy for 15 years, they even lived together at one point.
Almost Family Member
Amy is considered a part of her family, attending all family events and being referred to as a sister by her siblings.
Amy has been a significant presence in her life for years.
Amy’s husband, Suzanne’s husband’s best friend, cheated on her, leaving her heartbroken.
A Close Friend Needs Help
Suzanne and her husband agreed to let Amy stay with them until the situation resolves.
However, the friend is not ready to see her ex-partner yet.
Welcome In Their Home
Since she’s been staying with them she’s been a great help with Suzanne’s baby and the baby adores her.
Not Much Help
After work, the husband’s friends usually visit and stay until around 8 pm, so he is not able to help much with the baby when he gets home.
She Truly Appreciate
Nevertheless, Suzanne appreciates the little assistance he can provide.
However, last night, when he came home and saw Suzanne and the friend together, he rolled his eyes, looked at them briefly, and walked away.
On one particular night, Suzanne’s husband and his friends entered the house and were cold and impolite towards Amy throughout the evening.
After a couple of hours, the husband walked up to Suzanne and Amy, asking if Amy always had to be there and expressing a desire to her ex over.
Her Right as Her Father Pays
Suzanne responded by asserting that she has the right to bring her best friend into the house that her father paid for and to have someone else help with the baby.
The husband’s friends remained silent while he walked away and sat back down.
The Silent Treatment
Following the argument, the husband began giving Suzanne the silent treatment, and Amy left the house to stay with her mother, feeling uncomfortable.
Suzanne now wonders if she is in the wrong.
Community Weighs In
Many commenters agree that Suzanne is not to blame in this situation, as her husband chose to have a sensitive discussion in public and embarrassed both Suzanne and Amy.
One user wrote “This discussion really should have been done in private, but your husband chose not only to do it in public, but in front of the person affected. You didn’t embarrass your husband in front of his friends, he did.”
They also noticed several red flags in her husband’s behavior, such as prioritizing his friends over his family, giving Suzanne the silent treatment, and siding with a cheater, which implies he doesn’t think cheating is a big deal.
One user exclaimed “EVERY DAY he does this after work and she hasn’t lost it at him yet. And HE has the nerve to be giving HER the silent treatment. WHAT?”
Additionally, some commenters suggest that the husband might not be invested in the marriage and might be staying because of the money Suzanne’s father provides.
Commenters urge Suzanne to reconsider her relationship with her husband and suggest that he is emotionally abusive, disrespectful, and immature. They also suggest that she should communicate with her husband about his behavior and take action, such as initiating a divorce, if necessary.
