A woman is considering leaving her husband after discovering his secret nickname he calls her.
For most people, their name is a massive part of their identity, while others prefer a nickname.
But one wife has been left heartbroken after discovering the cruel nickname her husband and his mates have for her
And many, many people on the internet have flooded her with support after she revealed what had happened.
She first discovered that her husband and his mates have a “vile” nickname for her after borrowing his phone last week.
While she was using it, a notification popped up at the top of the screen from one of his mates.
It read: “Do you and ST still want to do the Halloween plans”
Her husband initially refused to tell her – after becoming very flustered – before insisting that it stood for ‘Super Terrific.’
Hmm, that doesn’t sound convincing at all.
Unsurprisingly, his wife didn’t believe him and asked for advice on Reddit.
Lots of people had good suggestions – including that it could be explicit or insulting.
She updated people yesterday on the R/Relationships forum, where she revealed that they were probably going to get a divorce following her shock discovery.
One of her husband’s female friends got in touch after she asked her husband about the nickname.
He texted the group telling them to stop calling her by it – but clearly wasn’t too worried.
The woman wrote: “She sent me a screenshot of his message which reads verbatim “LOL o s*** (Me) just saw that, I’m so screwed hahaha but seriously don’t send that anymore, I’m gonna end up in the doghouse (tears of laughter emoji).”
The female friend went on to tell her that “ST” stood for ‘sausage t***’, after her husband refused to tell her.
And she revealed that her husband found the nickname “funny” due to the shape of her breasts.
On Reddit, the devastated woman continued: “That’s what my husband and his gaggle of mental 12 year olds refer to me.
“I don’t even know how or why it started. I cannot fathom the thought that my husband could have described my boobs in detail to all his friends.
“And then they thought it sounded hilarious enough to make a nickname out of??
“I literally don’t even know what to feel. I haven’t been more humiliated in my life than I am right now.
“I don’t know what to do about him. He apologized but because it’s just a joke to him, he doesn’t seem to get or care how I feel.
“He apologized sincerely and promised he’d never call me that again or let any of his friends.
“Why did he ever in the first place. It’s not a complimentary nickname that you wouldn’t foresee a person not liking… right?
“Isn’t it obvious it’s mean spirited, or am I crazy to assume so?
“Is there some way I’m just not able to see where it’s not actually as bad as I feel??
“Anyway, that’s about it. I don’t know what to do. We’re sleeping in separate rooms because I can’t bare to be near him or have him see me.
“I never want him to see me naked again. I’m trying to figure out if my need for space is temporary or permanent. If it’s permanent, then I’ll be pursuing divorce.
“I just thought so highly of him. I never could have imagined he’d view me like this behind his back.
“It’s like if he was to gain weight and I encouraged all my friends to start calling him fatass or beer belly behind his back.
“What other possible reason to do that than contempt. I said this but he insists it’s doesn’t have any deeper meaning and is just bad humor.
“Whatever. Time to put kiddos to bed, while he’s typing away at his phone on the other side of the room.
“See, the issue I’m realizing is now there will always be a fear in my mind that he’s saying nasty things about me to who knows who.”
She added: “No idea how I’ll trust him again, realistically speaking this is likely to be another story that ends in divorce. Not even sure if he really gets it or cares.”
Lots of people on Reddit were outraged by the nickname.
One person replied: “This is horrible. He’s mocking your body. He has no consideration for you.
“His friends don’t. If my husband did this to me, I don’t think I’d be able to be around him anymore. I’d march my sausage t*** right down to the courthouse and start filing divorce paperwork.”
Another agreed, adding: “Hey I’m really sorry that he’s been such a jerk to you.
“You don’t deserve this at all. Your husband should be treating you with love and respect, and this isn’t good enough.”
A third blasted: “I’m really sorry he did this. He’s really awful. I’m not sure how anyone could move past his blatant disrespect and cruel jokes, and continue being in love with him/sticking around.
“He has sown the kind of damage that makes you never look at him quite the same ever again, it’s understandable that you’re not certain about wanting to be with him anymore.”
