A woman who was excited to finally get a positive test after she and her husband struggled for years to get pregnant with their first child has shared how he demanded a paternity test to prove he’s the father.
Writing on Reddit, the woman explained that they already have a two-year-old daughter and they had been trying again for more than a year.
She also said that they had struggled because of her husband’s low sperm count so she got so excited when she got the result.
“I had started a position as a social worker in the emergency department and I absolutely love it, but I see things that no one should see and on bad days, I don’t want s*x (which I think makes sense) and I’m sometimes late from work (never more than two hours),” she wrote.
“My husband also left on a boys vacation for a few days around the time I got pregnant. Something happened on this vacation and his mental health has been horrible since: not sleeping, easily agitated, and everyone else on the trip says that something went wrong but we’re not sure what happened.”
When she told him about the positive test, he immediately accused her of cheating on him.
“He wants a paternity test. And, oh yeah, he tested our daughter because he now thinks she’s not his either,” she wrote.
The woman also couldn’t believe that her husband talked to other people about his concerns that she may have cheated but they all told him that she would never do something like that.
“Even his mother is telling him that he’s out of line,” she added.
The woman then asked the internet: “Is this the end of our relationship? Because I don’t know how to come back from this now that I know he doesn’t trust me at all. How do I handle this?”
One person commented: “Honestly I don’t think there’s coming back from this. He could be insecure about his low sperm count, but honestly that’s not an excuse to go nuclear, and say I’ll just apologize if it turns out I’m wrong, and everything will be ok.”
Another said: “First step for me to even try to work things out is that he has to go to individual therapy. If this shift of behavior isn’t like him and has been a drastic change, then there’s something going on mental health wise that needs to be addressed.”
