A fully vaccinated wife has revealed that his fully vaccinated husband refuses to take his mask off ever since the pandemic started.
In a letter sent to Slate, the frustrated mother wrote: “For the last year, he has refused to take off his face mask, even when we are at home – just the two of us. This is true even now that he is fully vaccinated for the virus.
“He wears it to sleep, to do most of his bathroom activities, and, yes, even during lovemaking. To eat, he pulls it up to expose his mouth, and then quickly pulls it back down between bites.”
She continued: “While he does not insist that I do the same, I can tell it bothers him that I don’t-especially because I have now started going maskless outside, per the CDC guidelines, and plan on restaurant dining inside soon for a girls’ night out.”
The unnamed woman said that she tried to tell him it is not going to put him at risk but her husband insisted that scientists do not completely understand the virus yet, telling her he just wants to “be on the safe side.”
The wife said she disagrees, explaining: “I want to see my beautiful husband’s face again. I want to kiss him on the lips romantically, like we used to, and not through a piece of fabric. (He does not change his mask very often and it is often smelly and soiled.)
“And I don’t want to feel judged by him for my own behaviour, which I consider reasonable.”
She said she’s worried about their future together. Her mother even told her that she should just move out.
Slate suggested for her husband to visit his doctor to discuss the risks and to see a therapist.
