Man’s Wife T€rminates Her Pregnancy After Learning Of His Affair
One man took to the r/relationshipadvice subreddit to tell his story of extreme regret after his wife terminated her pregnancy because he cheated.
Later shared to the Reddit Stories TikTok account, things seem to have started off on a happy note — he claimed his wife was the “most important thing” in his life, but the story that follows suggests otherwise.
According to him, their marital problems started about four months into his wife’s pregnancy. While she was dealing with morning sickness and mood swings, he was feeling sorry for himself, and subconsciously seeking something less difficult to deal with outside of the marriage.
Things came to a head when the man’s company hosted a team building dinner with a well-used open bar. At the end of the night, the party continued at a colleague’s house. One thing led to another and he ended up sleeping with his 28-year-old coworker, a woman named Lucy.
In a decision he termed, “the biggest mistake of my life,” he professed his love for his wife and urged Lucy to pretend it didn’t happen.
Lucy decided to reach out to his wife and let her know what had transpired. He was confronted and confessed before begging his spouse for forgiveness, but his pleas fell on deaf ears. She didn’t want to hear anything he had to say, asking for time to process what had happened.
He thought nothing of it when he went to work the following day and hoped that after considering his apology, she would forgive him. But she never returned home. He became more and more concerned when all of his calls went unanswered, but an hour before he posted his story, his wife’s best friend dropped her off at home and left without offering any explanation.
When he talked to his wife he found out that she was no longer interested in being part of the marriage.
She told him to find a place to stay while they went through the divorce process. Distraught, he wanted to know what would become of the child they were expecting, but he wasn’t prepared for her response.
“She said that she [would] give me the address of the hospital she went to so that I can get it (the fetus),” he relayed. He admitted that his wife had never even wanted kids, but had agreed to get pregnant at his request.
With divorce looming, he turned to Reddit for answers about how to right his wrong and reconcile with his wife.
Commenters had a candid view of his situation, and it wasn’t in his favor. Most people felt he had tried to trap his wife with a baby, then once he thought she was stuck, he cheated on her.
Most people agreed that the woman made the best decision for herself. They suspected that his emotional abuse would inevitably escalate, and her decision to terminate the pregnancy was totally justified based on his actions.
