They say that marriage is for better or worse but, if the worse really happens, what then? Every successful marriage is built on the foundation of trust and honesty, but one man’s failure to be open about up a crucial matter just might cost him his marriage!
An anonymous woman took to Reddit recently to post a rather experience. She explained that she had been seeking a child for almost three years. In her desperation, she resorted to hormone treatments and other “invasive and expensive treatments.”
However, there was no baby lurking in the corner. Not even after 29 pregnancy tests! Repeatedly, the doctor asked that her husband undergo a semen analysis but he refused, and she supported him because she believed it was her fault.
She had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a disorder that makes conception difficult; this led her to believe she was the cause of their infertility. However, things took an unexpected turn when her husband made an astonishing confession. She had given her husband an ultimatum – either go for IVF or she would file for divorce.
He stated at this time that he had a vasectomy done long before they married since he didn’t want his ex-wife to trap him with a child. He told her he loved her and was afraid she would leave him. As a result, he had been telling lies.
She wrote that, eventually, she gave him three options, either he gets it reversed, she uses a sperm donor, or they get a divorce. Obviously confused, she added: “I love him. But I am broken. And given his lies, I think we are better off not married.
I could still get a sperm donor and honestly, might be for the best.” Many users expressed their disgust at the husband’s behavior, noting that a man that is indeed in love would never let his wife go through such a horrible experience.
Others were appalled by the fact that the woman was still considering being married to such a liar. Unfortunately, the post is no longer accessible, so we are not sure how things have played out. However, what would you do if you were in her shoes?
It is essential for couples to know that trust is vital in any union. The moment it is broken, little or nothing can be done to revive the relationship. We hope this woman makes the right decision in the end. It is important to always show love to our family members. Here is a powerful story to show it.
