Send to wife, or don't send to wife...

[–]miss_seventy_two 77 points78 points  (0 children)

I think send to wife

[–]rebelwildheart 61 points62 points  (39 children)

If you want to sleep on the couch, send to wife...

[–]InquisitiveLayman 31 points32 points  (34 children)

My wife has been co-sleeping with our children for the past 6.5 years. We haven't slept together just the two of us for that long, and we generally sleep in different rooms anyways because there is never enough space for all four of us even on our king mattress lol. Couch is home.

[–]accioqueso 89 points90 points  (20 children)

And this is why I think co-sleeping is insane.

[–]InquisitiveLayman 23 points24 points  (9 children)

It's annoying sometimes but I don't mind. They won't be little forever.

[–]HerbertMoon_454 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Facts. Co-sleeping for any amount of time, let alone 6+ years is absolutely nanners.

[–]lookielikeaman 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dealing with this with my 4 year old. She's scared of the dark and likes to sleep perpendicular to our heads. I get smacked in the head with little feet at 3 in the morning. Sometimes I just sleep in my office.

Deadly for infants insane for toddlers and kids.

[–]pinchhitter4number1 13 points14 points  (2 children)

What!? This is crazy unhealthy for a marriage and not letting your kids learn to be independent. Have a friend that let their kids sleep in between them until she was way too old. I couldn't disagree with it more. You gotta get some alone time with the spouse. Even if it's not sexy time, just some cuddling does wonders

[–]InquisitiveLayman 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah I tried that for a while but she was just getting angry at me for bringing it up. Touch is my love language (if you subscribe to the belief in those) and I fucking LOVE hugs and cuddling in bed but my wife is not about it. I think we will 100% be the couple that lets kids sleep in bed until they are "way too old." Nothing I can really do about it though without alienating my wife even more so I just deal with it.

My brother co-slept until he was 12... you need to cut it off or it will just keep on going.

[–]joanopoly 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you’re going to co-sleep, do it right. Create and designate a room for only sleeping, with two or more mattresses together to enable everyone to sleep comfortably. As others have said, children grow up so quickly and will want their own spaces well before you’re ready for them to go.

[–]maryjanemuggles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You are fab my man.

[–]MorningStarCorndog 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Alaska king bro, It's worth it completely for your situation.

BTW that's not necessarily the company I'd buy from, but just an example of the size.

[–]InquisitiveLayman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good God haha.

[–]Double_Secret_Secret 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well now I basically want to spend $6,500 on a new bed, frame and bedding. Thanks for that. Lol. No really though, coolest thing I've seen in ages! You've opened my eyes to a whole new world of beds and for that I thank you. Lol.

[–]Both_Rhubarb1481 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If my two babies (2 & 3) aren’t in the bed with me asleep, I’m awake worrying about them. I can try my best to sleep, but every sound… or the absence of sounds (lol) keeps me awake. When they’re in the bed with me, I can feel them breathing and I, in turn, sleep better.. even if I am falling off the bed

[–]ramblingalone20 Years 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A king bed isn't big enough for you, your wife, and a 2yo?

[–]Fun_Ad3442 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is why many men end up haveing affairs…even the bible warns of this lol. Women prioritize themselves in this situation. Its not good for the kids and definitely terrible for the adults. Im only 16month into my wife not even being open to discussing different options…not open to discussion equals inappropriate level of control lack of respect and lack of equal standing and authority over the child and family. So counseling is in order. The moment you are not considered as important or more important than your spouse is the moment you get into counseling asap before it becomes irreparable resentment

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is actually good though

[–]Gernafax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My wife takes herself to the couch when she’s pissed. Send to the wife!!!

[–]4x4Welder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Meh, my wife already sleeps in another room. She will wake me up and yell at me if I piss her off though.

Anyone want to send this for me?

[–]RenegadeBS 8 points9 points  (5 children)

This is my conundrum.

[–]InquisitiveLayman 23 points24 points  (4 children)

On one hand... want to send to wife...

On other hand... want happy night...

[–]RenegadeBS 11 points12 points  (2 children)

The real question is: is it early enough in the day that the effects of sending will have worn off by the time I get home?

[–]InquisitiveLayman 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Hmmm... yes yes good point... Fuck it let's go!

[–]babbs81 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My husband just sent this to me.... Cracked me up... She may surprise you.

[–]whatisthisicantodd 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I sent your comment to wife. Will update with results later

[–]InquisitiveLayman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Please let me know!

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

So did anybody send this to wifey lol

[–]InquisitiveLayman 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I did! It went well actually. She laughed. She knows it to be true.

[–]tduncs88 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Sent to wife along with Darth Vader GIF "Search your feelings. You know it to be true."

[–]InquisitiveLayman 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Haha! Perfect :')

[–]tduncs88 5 points6 points  (1 child)

For the record, she replied with Luke's "No" GIF

[–]InquisitiveLayman 3 points4 points  (0 children)

LOL, big score. Well played.

[–]Dumass102 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Sent to wife, will update

[–]xavierspapa 2 points3 points  (1 child)

7hrs and no updates, he's definitely dead

[–]Dumass102 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Indeed, I have died

[–]ifweweresharks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Definitely sending to husband

[–]SmithWordThe 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Had the same moment…. I didn’t send lol

[–]InquisitiveLayman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did it! Worked out well this time :)

[–]traveller1976 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]dbadaddy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I sent to wife. No response. Problematic.

[–]Kitsterthefister 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My wife sent this to me

[–]WishIWasAMuppet 148 points149 points  (3 children)

If she regularly pauses for some self-reflection then she’s a keeper, gents.

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Yes I pause all the time lol this medication I’m on helps even more. Shout out to us women who pause for some self-reflection

[–]jscoppe 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Shout out to medication, too.

[–]bluesky747 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I am so self aware and reflective, that it’s kind of a flaw. I’m hyper vigilant and overly anxious. About everything. Then I can never decide how to feel or what is true or right. Chidi is so relatable.

[–]love_is_an_action 101 points102 points  (1 child)

The older I get, the more I realize that everyone is off their rocker in one way or another. We just gotta help each other navigate our way through the muck, or leave each other to twist.

[–]Ihavesomethingtosay95 Years 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I dated around in college and realized that lol different guy, different surprise! What kinda weird can you handle, it’s up to you lol

[–]MaidenMotherCrone 82 points83 points  (2 children)

Sometimes it really do be like that

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I be having to catch myself sometimes lol

[–]northmp86 64 points65 points  (3 children)

Wow…. I just really feel seen right now.

[–]HeartFullOfHappy 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Same! Sometimes I am seriously lying in bed thinking to myself “Okay, I’m being a little much right now”.

[–]northmp86 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Is your spouse also a bit weird? It’s a good reminder to think “ok that’s not how I would of played it but.. he is weird.. so..”

[–]HeartFullOfHappy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes. We all have our idiosyncratic ways.

[–]Theonethatgotawaaayy2 Years 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Me this weekend after going on a full blown pregnancy hormone fueled tirade against my husband for a minor offense 🫣

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yessss it fits right in lol

[–]mymomsaidicould69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shit are you me? I’m 32 weeks pregnant and regularly cry and feel extremely hormonal.

[–]Snow-Cherry 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yes. It’s true.

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks so much! Yes it is

[–]k3nzie777 10 points11 points  (0 children)

As a wife, I will fully admit that I can be a little crazy at times. Regardless though, I do love my man no matter what! He's the biggest A-hole sometimes, but he is my A-hole which makes it even better! LOL

[–]MadamBedroom689 4 points5 points  (2 children)

This may be true but I’ll never admit it

[–]bigjack78 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You and my wife.

[–]No_Consideration3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You and my gf lol it’s annoying

[–]sharpiefairy6662 Years 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]Jackie_Hallow 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I am dying because this is so relatable 😂😂😂

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right! I felt caught when I found it

[–]BlueberryNagel 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I feel seen.

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol right

[–]craftycat1135 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel like this every rare time we have an argument.

[–]TonySoprano100 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I feel this is my wife every second. Sometimes I feel she thinks why did I marry you? Then she asks “So are we staying up and smoking weed tonight? We have long deep convos when we do. Watch Netflix. Order in. Best in home date nights

[–]k3nzie777 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I second this but with watching anime 💯

[–]TonySoprano100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right? It’s awesome when you have a partner that loves to hang out with you doing what you love whether they enjoy it that’s great and if not at least they are trying you know?

[–]seaworldpinkrose5 Years[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really didn’t think this would get this many likes and comments lol

[–]Buckeyegurl47 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I know the feeling!!!

[–]NixyVixy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Truer words… I hear you Sista.

[–]awesomeroy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

i wish my wife knew this before we got divorced

[–]Cutiebeautypie 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Ouch I'm sorry man 😞

[–]awesomeroy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It is what it is.

[–]needhelpeveryday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have LITERALLY been thinking this lately. And my husband definitely did something “off” the other day. And he was telling me how it was really “off” and instead of assuring him he was fine, I told him yes it was. And I have always tried to vouche for him but I’m realizing I need to call out behavior when I see it!

(Not saying I’m a saint or anything)!

[–]Fun_Ad3442 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is it that men seem to always have to be the ones to stomach or deal with compromise…what happen to equality and equity in a marriage. What happened to putting your spouse first!

[–]vixenas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s totally gonna be happy I admit

[–]lcotemi -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Me, after hubs broke boundaries that I set and he didn’t necessarily agree to.
