A woman whose father has recently passed away has revealed how she and her husband stopped talking to each other after he refused to attend the funeral.
Taking to Reddit, the grieving daughter explained that her husband didn’t want to go to the funeral because he was ‘worried about seeing him’ with his wife looking taller than him.
“My dad passed away 2 weeks ago. Before the funeral, My husband who has always had issues with height (he’s short) asked if I was going to wear high heels. I said yes because those high heels are the only pair of shoes that I have in a black color to fit my outfit,” she wrote.
She said that her husband tried to get her to wear a different pair of shoes but when she refused, he said that he wouldn’t go to the funeral.
“I was shocked and I called him insane to miss the funeral over such a reason but he seemed upset and said that I was the insane one for refusing to compromise to make it work,” the wife continued.
They had a huge argument and his family said that she was being stubborn for not changing her shoes.
“His family said I should’ve compromised if I really wanted him there,” she added.
People on Reddit were shocked by her husband’s attitude, with one person commenting: “He is more worried about how HE looks that supporting you or showing any respect for your father. He’s gross. This should be a real wake-up call for you. Take those high heels and walk away in them!”
Another said: “I personally couldn’t take someone back who couldn’t put their insecurities aside to support me in my darkest moment. No one at a funeral would even be paying any attention to the husband! They would be too bereft and mourning. He made it all about himself as if everyone didn’t already know he is short.”
