'Childish' Man Fakes Injury to Force Wife to Leave Wedding

Is it ever okay to lie to your partner?

Romantic relationships are not effortless, because sharing life with another person is simply not a straightforward thing. Relationships take a lot of work, and they also take a lot of compromise.

It’s important for a couple to be on the same page when it comes to values and what they deem as vital in both life and their partnership. But if that couple is not on the same page, what are they to do?

These realities were highlighted in a recent online post in which a man fakes a serious injury to pull his partner away from an event that he didn’t want her to attend, to begin with.

Is it ever okay to lie to your partner?

An online post published on September 25, reported on by Ashley Gale from Newsweek, has gone viral with an incredible 20,400 upvotes and close to 1,000 comments.

The author starts her post by stating that her husband has recently been feeling sick, and for that reason, she has been at his beck and call ever since he’s been ill. The author does however confirm that he is on medication to become well again, and he can walk, use the washroom, and feed himself without her help.

But this is not where the issue really arises from. The author continues by stating that her brother’s wedding was this past weekend, and as she was getting ready to go, her husband ‘threw a fit’ and told her she ‘wasn’t allowed to leave him alone’ while he was sick. The author argued that he ‘wasn’t that sick’ and was already on medication, but regardless suggested calling her husband’s sister to come over and stay with him if he was worried.

Despite the suggestion, her husband continued to tell her that she wasn’t allowed to attend the wedding, and that she needed to ‘miss it’. The author still walked out of the house, and when she left through the door her husband told her that he ‘hoped she didn’t come back’.

How important is honesty in a relationship?

Though they parted on bad terms, the author tried to shake it off to enjoy the wedding. However, while she was at the wedding, she received a text from her husband that said he had fallen down the stairs, hurt his back and ‘couldn’t move’. He finished his text by insisting that she needed to come back home ASAP. When she called, he didn’t pick up, which really concerned the author—she assumed he ‘must have passed out’.

When the author rushed home she started searching for her husband, calling his name and ‘freaking out’. That was when she ‘rushed into the bedroom’ and found him lying in bed ‘drinking juice and looking at his phone’. In that moment she realized he had lied about injuring himself and being in trouble, and she ‘lost it’ because he had ‘caused her to miss her brother’s wedding for nothing’.

The husband then argued back that he had ‘already told her she couldn’t leave him alone’ because ‘this very scenario could have actually happened’. The author continued to yell in her upset, which caused her husband to ‘start crying and throwing his juice all over the place’. The couple hasn’t seen one another since the argument, and are currently living separately.

What do you think? Is the author justified to be furious with her husband for lying about a serious injury, thus causing her to miss her brother’s wedding? Or did the husband clearly express his needs, and his wife should have been more sensitive to his needs and desires?
