    From Redditor /u/Faeula:

    One weekend we were supposed to go out on a date and he stood me up. I couldn't get ahold of him at all. I was freaking out thinking he was dying in a ditch somewhere! 

    Turns out he had gotten married over the weekend to the girl who had given birth to his child. I never knew about them.

  • Her Husband Adhered To Outdated Gender Roles

    From Redditor /u/superslakher:

    Out of nowhere, a year into being married, he said he wanted to join the Marine Corps. He also wanted me to drop out of law school, birth babies, take care of his mother, and a run a household all while he was deployed. Hard pass.

  • She Had Multiple STDs

    From Redditor /u/Notasupervillan:

    A year in I found out she lied to [me] about getting an STD test. Turned out she had more than one STD, which somehow I tested clean for.

  • He Tried To Frame His Wife For Murder

    From Redditor /u/1ofZuulsMinions:

    That my husband wanted to start fires and kill police officers, and was planning on framing me for it so his girlfriend could move in while I did his time in prison for him.

  • He Was Overbearing During Pregnancy And Completely Absent As A Father

    From Redditor /u/rusty0123:

    When I had my first child. The pregnancy wasn't a surprise or an accident. We talked and planned. He got a little overbearing during the pregnancy, like insisting on breastfeeding without even discussing it with me. I put it down to new dad nerves, not knowing any better. 

    Turns out that was only the tip of the iceberg. He believed that children were completely and totally a wife's responsibility. He wouldn't change a diaper. He wouldn't pick up the baby when it cried. No way would he get up in the middle of the night. He expected me to work a full-time job, plus do all the childcare. 

    At that point, I was confused and appalled but I told myself he just needed time to adjust. 

    I realized how delusional I was when the baby got sick while he was on a fishing trip. The doctors thought baby had meningitis. So not just sick, but life-threatening sick. I called and asked him to come home. He refused. He'd paid for two more days of fishing. He didn't want to lose the money.
