A frustrated woman posted about her marital problems in a thread on the relationships section of Reddit Friday, and her post went viral.
The woman says her husband sent her an email Thursday complaining about the lack of sex in their relationship, saying that’s the reason he wouldn’t miss her while she was away on a trip. As part of the email, he attached a spreadsheet detailing all the attempts he made to initiate sex and the reasons why he was rebuffed by his wife.
The woman, known on Reddit as throwwwwaway29, posted her explanation of the situation on this thread. Here’s what she says happened:
Yesterday morning, while in a taxi on the way to the airport, Husband sends a message to my work email which is connected to my phone. He’s never done this, we always communicate in person or by text. I open it up, and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone. Attached is a SPREADSHEET of all the times he has tried to initiate sex since June 1st, with a column for my “excuses”, using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment. According to his ‘document’, we’ve only had sex 3 times in the last 7 weeks, out of 27 “attempts” on his part.
While withholding sex from a spouse for a lengthy period of time is a relationship-breaker where I come from, keeping track of the lack of sex in a spreadsheet only to throw it back in the spouse’s face is an all-time loser move. This is the same guy who probably prepares for his fantasy football draft 8 months in advance and complains to the commissioner about every trade being unfair.
Instead of running to your lack-of-sex diary anytime your wife denies you in bed, why not spend that energy trying to figure out what you can do to make the sex happen?Google+
