A heartbroken husband has revealed that his dying wife has expressed a very specific wish.
Because he felt like there was ‘no one I can tell’, he took to Reddit to open up about this horrific situation.
Read his full message below:
“I can’t have this tied to my main, but I really need to say something about it and have no one I can tell.
My wife has a terminal disease. She is projected to live at most 9 months. I am of course destroyed. We’ve been together for a decade. I don’t remember life without her and I don’t know what I’m going to do when she’s gone. I have been doing my best to make the last days of her life good and grant whatever wish I can.
The doctors said that she was likely to need a wheelchair in 4 or 5 months, then by month 8 she’ll be bedridden for the last few weeks. That’s if she doesn’t decline faster.
Recently she sat me down and told me that one of the last things she wanted to do was have s3x with a previous partner of hers. I of course was shocked and when I asked why the f^ck she wants that. So basically she thinks that her most physically compatible satisfying lover was him.
She gave a whole monologue about how sxx sometimes is just physical and how emotionally fulfilling s is with me but it was bullshit to get to that point.
So now I’m left with this, deny my dying wife a wish for my own ego, or let her go f^ck another man who she feels was better. Honestly I’m so pissed of and betrayed that she asked this of me. I feel like I’m put in a position where I have to say yes because she’s dying. I know what I want to say, but I don’t know if that’s right. I’m so hurt that s3x with an ex was apparently so good that she needs to do it once before she dies. I just hate everything about this.”
Let’s just say fellow Redditors were pretty savage in the comments section.
“If this is a real story, well then, just pack her stuff and let her live with her ex for the rest of her time,” one person said.
Another added: “Sorry but her illness is not an excuse to treat you like s**t. That is incredibly insulting to you and your relationship.”
Someone else also raged: “This seems like a very odd request to bring to you without any leg work or preparation.
“That she would significantly risk blowing up her marriage and end of life companionship and care for sex with someone she isn’t in contact with and doesn’t know would still even entertain the thought of intimacy with her.”
Honestly, it really is an unfathomable situation.
