“She hung up on me,” he continued. “I’m not asking much. Just don’t want people calling my wife Michael anymore!”
Here’s what the internet had to say.
“You’re going to lose your wife over a name – shows how much you actually love her. She deserves so much better. I hope she and her family put you where you belong – in the past.”
“She’s had the name her whole life and embraces it. She was Michael when you met her, she was Michael when you proposed. She was Michael when you got married.”
“She is Michael. You are the problem.”
“She’ll be Michael when she divorces him too.”
“I also go by a typically considered masculine version of my birth name. My father called me by this name my entire life, a “nickname” of sorts.”
“I always liked it so that’s what I started going by.”
