“That is not the case at all,” he said. “I find my wife beautiful, but she keeps sizing up in her jeans and then acts confused about why.”
He also claimed that he and his wife are very open in their relationship. So, he did not think his comments would be “taken so offensively.”
Regardless, after his wife became upset, he told her that he thought she was beautiful. He also reiterated how the comment was not meant to be an insult; rather, he was just saying she had not lost the weight yet.
His attempt at an explanation did not make the situation any better, though, and his wife reportedly wound up getting defensive.
“She said she carried two babies in her body, so what did I expect,” he recalled.
Afterward, his wife apparently “had an attitude” with him for the remainder of the night. Then, once they went to bed, his wife slept as close to the wall as she could get– and he just didn’t understand why.
“We are open about things,” he vented. “I never meant for it to be taken so negatively or to insult her.”
But, with his wife still upset with him, he has been left wondering whether pointing out his wife’s post-pregnancy weight was the wrong thing to do.
Does it make sense why his wife has not been going to the gym four times a week, given the fact that she has 2-year-old twins? Regardless, should he have ever commented on her weight? Does his wife have a right to be upset? If you were in his shoes, how would you reconcile this situation?
