A woman has been told she is being “controlling” after revealing she resents her husband going skydiving with another woman.
The anonymous poster was taken to the British parenting forum. Momsnet Ask others for their opinion on your dilemma.
And although it seemed like he was looking for some sympathy, many forum users responded rather harshly to his post.
An unnamed woman, believed to reside in the UK, has been reprimanded after revealing she does not want her husband to go skydiving with a friend (file image)
The original post (pictured) asked people what they thought about the dilemma and if I was being reasonable.
One wrote: “It’s pretty hard to get nervous in the air in boiler suits
In his original post, he wrote: ‘My partner wanted to do a charity skydive with some of his friends/colleagues. I refused because it is not something that interests me.
‘He said it’s fine. And now she’s tandem skydiving with one of her friends?
‘AIBU (Am I being unreasonable) to worry?’
Many of the people who commented on the post felt that since the woman had refused to go skydiving, her husband had no choice.
‘Do not be silly. It’s okay,’ one commented.
Another agreed, adding: “What exactly are your concerns?”
A third wrote: ‘I went skydiving with two friends from work (one woman, one man and we were all single). They were just three colleagues jumping out of a plane.’
Meanwhile, a fourth noted: ‘He asked you first, suggesting you were his first choice. She is his plan B.
Many commenters criticized the woman, with one calling her “controlling” and another calling her “controlling.”
‘What could happen? They will dive with an instructor. Maybe it will become a bonding experience for them.
‘Do you already have doubts about this specific person? Or is there a history of your partner being unfaithful to you?
Another wrote: ‘You have the right to do the activities you like. You’re being controlling.’
And another forum user added: ‘You’re being ridiculous. You said you weren’t interested and that your husband is skydiving with someone else. Why the need for drama?
However, some respondents were a little more sympathetic to the sign and its concerns.
One wrote: ‘He is with you, for you.
‘Your insecurities are yours. Work on them.’
However, several respondents were more sympathetic to the woman’s insecurities and offered some report.
Another added: ‘This thread has encouraged me. You have nothing to worry about.’
A third added: “Unless there’s a story with a woman then YABU (You’re being unreasonable).”
Meanwhile, another respondent added: “Come watch and support, many first-time jumpers bring friends and family as spectators.” He’s no more likely to bond with her over this than over any shared activity, and you can’t stop him from doing everything you’re not willing to do!’
And a fifth wrote: ‘I can see why you don’t like it. I wouldn’t want my friend to get excited about sharing an experience he will remember for the rest of his life with another woman.
“There’s not much you can do, it’s a matter of charity and he asked you first.” Just hunker down and go to the airfield that day to take pictures.’
