A wife who booked a romantic holiday with her husband has shared how their trip was ruined when an unexpected plus one suddenly showed up.
The woman took to Reddit and explained that she just wanted to have a romantic getaway with her husband but he made an unusual and unreasonable request.
“I’ll preface this by saying that my husband (33) has a friend ‘Carl’ (33) who he considers to be one of his closest friends,” the woman wrote.
“My husband sometimes calls Carl his ‘nicotine’ because of how much he misses him and wants to spend time with him, they do everything together, they’re even co-workers working the same job,” she continued.
But when Carlos’s wife died from cancer several months ago, he started to distance himself and it left her husband devastated for his friend.
Her husband then began spending more time with Carl, buying him new clothes and meals.
When the couple planned a vacation to another state, the wife was shocked to learn of some unexpected changes.
“I made a hotel reservation for two,” she went on. “Unbeknownst to me, my husband had invited Carl to come with us, this made me upset because it spoiled the entire vacation (not trying to be dramatic) I only found out when he went to pick him up.”
Her husband then explained that Carl just lost his wife and also needed a vacation but he couldn’t afford it.
“First night, I was in bed when my husband and Carl got back, I got woken up by my husband telling me to get out of bed and sleep on the mattress he put for me on the floor and he and Carl would take the bed,” she expressed.
Her husband told her that Carl was a guest and they couldn’t let him sleep on the floor.
“I told Carl to get out then got up and got dressed to go home,” the wife said. However, her husband got mad at her and started yelling at her.
“I left the hotel and travelled back home. Carl didn’t say anything when he saw me leave except that I was making this non-issue an issue.”
The woman is now asking if she was in the wrong for getting mad at her husband and his friend. Reddit users were quick to share their thoughts on the matter.
“I would point blank be asking my husband if he’s into Carl. At no time is it appropriate to invite someone on a couple’s vacay without even discussing it with your partner, and then, wake that partner up and tell them to sleep on the floor. What the f**k,” one person wrote-
Another commented: “Yep, her husband made it pretty damn clear that she’s the third wheel in his and Carl’s relationship.”
