People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)

Honesty isn’t always the best policy, even in long-term relationships and in marriage. How you say something, how you phrase your opinion is just as (and arguably even more) important than what you’re trying to communicate. The truth can hurt and opinions can sting if you think diplomacy is a blunt instrument.

Internet users have been compiling a huge list of all the things that husbands should never (ever, ever, ever) tell their wives over on the r/AskReddit subreddit. The thread had nearly 6k comments and over 14k upvotes at the time of writing, and it’s all the proof you need that blurting out whatever’s on our mind doesn’t always bring about the best results.

Have a read through some of the best entries in the thread, upvote the comments that you absolutely agree shouldn’t leave a guy’s mouth, and let us know what you think is essential when it comes to communication in relationships in the comments.

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)My dad, who doesn’t bake anything and barely cooks at all, while eating a slice of my mom’s homemade apple pie:

“You don’t cut the apples right.”

And that was the last apple pie she ever made for him. Around 40 years ago.

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)When I was pregnant with my daughter, maybe ten-eleven weeks and really wacky hormonal, my ex suddenly looked up and said,

“I know! If the baby is a girl we should make it Stephanie after my one true love.”

My name is 100% not Stephanie.

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)At dinner with my parents last night, my husband said “it was so annoying when you kept throwing up when you were pregnant.”

I threw up 3x a day for 20 weeks. I’m sorry it inconvenienced him so much

Earlier, I spoke with relationship and self-love coach Alex Scot about honesty, trust, and how we can distinguish between secrecy and privacy. According to Alex, it’s best to be completely honest with your loved one if the information affects them directly. We should do our best to imagine ourselves in their shoes and think about what we’d prefer, the truth or lies, in their position.

“If it can affect your partner or family, there absolutely should be transparency. Whenever in doubt, put yourself in the other person’s shoes and ask yourself what you would like if you were in their situation,” Alex told Bored Panda.

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)I didn’t get to try my mother’s lasagna till I was twenty years old. Why? My father, in a temporary bout of insanity, whilst eating my mother’s home made said to her “this is really good lasagna, but you know who makes REALLY good lasagna? My ex wife.”

“If it wouldn’t impact them, then you have the option of keeping it to yourself. The difference between privacy and secrecy is that secrecy has a sense of shame, guilt, or knowing that your partner or family member wouldn’t be ok with whatever took place.”

According to Alex, rebuilding trust takes time and effort and is a real challenge. The bigger the loss of trust, the longer it will take for someone to start believing you and feeling safe around you again.

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)Never tell your partner they did something badly if they do something to be good to you.

If they cleaned the apartment on their day off but there was still sand on the rug in the hallway, dont point out the sand and say they missed a spot or that they did it badly.

Say that it was fantastic and you really love it, then you can say “ohh i think i pulled some sand in with me, i’ll just go and dust this hallway mat” Next time when they do it they will remember the hallway mat too.

Dont criticize your partner when they are trying to make you happy, they wont do it perfectly the first time around that is ok. If you criticize your partner when they are trying to make you happy, they will stop doing it. If you tell them it was fantastic, that you loved it, they will put more effort into it because its worth it to them, because it makes you happy.

You should also tell your partner how to train you the same way, so you become someone that makes your partner happy.

Ozacoter 1 month ago (edited)I think that it depends if the partner forgot once (then its ok) or if they refuse to do x chore. If my partner says that he “cleaned” but all he did was to put the roomba the first time I will thank him. The tenth I will be angry.

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)That she’s only upset because she’s PMSing. My husband knows my cycle better than I do (which isn’t saying much because I really pay no attention), and I swear he just expects me to get bitchy, so anytime I get irritated in that window of time, he acts like I’m not to be taken seriously.

For the record, I do get PMS—not severely, but I recognize when I’m getting irrationally bitchy, because I feel like I just WANT to be mad. So when I make a reasonable complaint from a rational place and it gets attributed to PMS, it’s infuriating. Like, it’s reasonable for me to get mad that you walked past a heap of cat puke 10 times today but waited for me to get home to clean it up!

“For smaller offenses, it will take less time, but for larger offenses, be prepared to be overly transparent for a time and hire a therapist or coach to walk you through the process. Trust takes consistency to rebuild and consistency equals effort over time.”

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)Not my husband, but an ex boyfriend.

I dressed up for a dinner out, feeling super cute in my new dress. So I come up to him, smiley face and all.

I didn’t even asked him how I looked. Did not intend to. He just said, with a disapointed face and a lil disgusted tone:

“You really wanna know what I think about your outfit?”

He’s the ex for many reasons, but this one still makes me angry when I think of it.

He thought it was a compliment. Aaaaand he still hasn’t lived it down, but his story has changed over time. My mom is now a 7 in looks lmao

People Share What Horrible Things Husbands Have Said To Their Wives That No One Should Repeat (35 Stories)You look better with less weight! You were more relaxed before we had kids. We have 3 kids 5 and under, the eldest most likely has ASD, sensory processing disorder, ADHD and still doesn’t sleep. Sorry I’m not as carefree as before.
