A woman has been urged to divorce her husband after he cracked jokes about her makeup during his wedding speech.
OK, there’s a few things you don’t do, and one of them is definitely take the p*** out of someone on their wedding day.
It’s not gonna go down well, no matter how well they can take a joke for the rest of the time.
Still, that’s what happened to this woman, and now people have suggested she should bin her husband off altogether for his actions
She shared her story on Reddit – where else? – in its ‘Am I The Asshole?’ sub.
The 30-year-old woman admitted that she has ‘always struggled with self-esteem’ and is an ‘anxious, socially awkward person’.
So, it naturally didn’t go down well when – on their wedding day – her husband, who she generously describes as a ‘jokester’, cracked wise about how much makeup she had on for their wedding day.
Her post read: “I got introduced to makeup during my late 20s and it's now become both a source of income & a source of self-confidence and esteem.
“My now husband always teased me about it, mind you he's a jokester and is a bit on the sarcastic - brutally honest side.
“I didn't have an issue as long as it was done privately, meaning private teasing.”
She continued: “At our wedding I went a bit out of box when it came to makeup, but it looked matching and fitting obviously.
“My husband didn't stop commenting on it during the wedding.
“I was beginning to get annoyed but when it was time for his groom speech.
“He looked at me and then said ...and my wife here who looks like a department store mannequin with that makeup on her face...’ I was dumbfounded.”
Yes, you probably would be.
“Guests started laughing at me loosely,” she added.
“I felt so much rage I didn't know how to contain it.
“I waited ‘til his parents were around then I went off on him about what he said.
“He said it was just a joke and I took it too personally.
“I argued with him about how I felt regarding his teasing in public but he insisted I blew this out of proportion and ruined ‘the atmosphere’ for the wedding as well as humiliated him in front of his parents when I scolded him like he was a kid.
“He sulked about it for 3 days then told me that I needed to apologize for this negative vibe I brought upon him and for reacting so insanely over a joke.”
She concluded: “I wonder if I really overreacted here?
It seems not, according to the comments.
One suggested: “I'm not the type to immediately jump down breakup or divorce.
“But I will say, take a long, hard time to yourself to think about if you're willing to put up with this for the rest of your lives. You think you can now, but in 10, 20, 50 years time are you going to be ok with it? I hope not.
“The fact he has so little respect for you makes me wonder what other signs and issues are popping up that you haven't noticed, seen or are ignoring that you should take into consideration as well.”
A second comment read: “That doesn't look good for your marriage honestly. Reassess your relationship, you wouldn't be the first newly married to get an early divorce.”
A third concluded: “He needs therapy or divorce papers.”
Again for the people in the back – don’t take the p*** out of people on their wedding day.
