One need not be an expert in relationships to understand the significance of a couple’s first wedding anniversary, but it appears that no one told the husband of a distraught Reddit user of this information.
After her spouse abandoned her on their anniversary, the woman vented her displeasure on Reddit’s “r/TrueOffMyChest” thread.
Since they initially began dating five years ago, his childhood best buddy Sasha has been a source of conflict in their union.
According to the lady who posted on Reddit, “Sasha would always try and get in the way and on every date we went, she just so happened to be there, which was kind of aggravating because my husband would let her stay with us on all those outings.”
But these annoying moments paled in comparison to her husband forgetting their wedding anniversary and choosing to spend it with his friend. “I didn’t know about this road trip until he said he was leaving. I didn’t bother telling him it was our anniversary since he didn’t remember and he would probably still spend the day with Sasha even if he did know,” she explained.
After he left, she decided that she wanted to do something for herself and went out shopping by herself. While she was out, her mother-in-law called her to wish her a happy wedding anniversary. She also asked her where her husband was as he wasn’t picking up any of her phone calls. She was honest and told her about his whereabouts and how he didn’t remember their anniversary.
The woman continued, “She was astonished and told me she didn’t think Sasha and my husband still had feelings for each other.”
She inquired about it because she didn’t understand what her mother-in-law was saying.
She was informed by her mother-in-law that her husband and his best friend formerly dated in high school.
This came as quite a surprise to the woman because her husband had previously assured her that he had never thought romantically of Sasha.
“Now that everything has started to become more evident. Perhaps he was aware of our anniversary but opted to remain silent since he cherished Sasha, she speculated.
She was quite hurt at this point as her husband and she had been together for so long and were even married now. “If he loved her could [have] told me before we got married. I would [have] been hurt but I understand feelings and I know you can’t control them.”
In an updated post, she explained that after her husband got back from the trip, he called her numerous times but she ignored him as she had to go to work. When she came home, her husband and Sasha were in the kitchen chatting and laughing which just made her angry.
She led him to their room where they had a discussion about it. He was shouted at by her as she declared her desire for a divorce. Her husband continued to worry about Sasha even after that because he believed she might have overheard their chat.
“That man’s arrogance, considering everything I’ve done for him. Even though Sasha wasn’t in the same room as us, it’s obvious that he picked her because he considered her feelings, she said.
