Man blasted for shaming wife for not going to the gym when she has two-year-old twins
Posted February 25, 2023 by: Admin
A Reddit user has sparked outrage after making insensitive comments about his wife’s post-baby weight gain. In a post on the “am I the a**hole?” subreddit, the anonymous user claimed his wife had made no effort to lose the weight she gained after giving birth to their twins.
The user stated that his wife was previously petite, weighing between 120-125 pounds, but had gained weight after giving birth to their twins and had not made any effort to lose it. He claimed that he did not intend to insult her and only pointed out that her new jeans did not fit due to her baby weight.
The post has since received over 4,000 comments, with many users criticizing the man for his insensitive comments. Many pointed out that it was unreasonable to expect a mother of twins to maintain the same fitness routine as before and that it was unnecessary for the man to comment on his wife’s weight in such a manner.
One user wrote: “You’re the a**hole. Of course, she’s not in the gym four times a week with two-year-old twins lmfao.” Another agreed, stating: “You’re the a**hole. I don’t understand what you thought saying this would achieve? Do you think she hasn’t noticed she doesn’t weigh the same as pre-babies? She is not confused as to why she is going up in jeans sizes.”
It is important to remember that every woman’s post-baby weight journey is different and that it takes time to adjust to the physical and emotional changes that come with having a child. It is never appropriate to shame or criticize someone for their appearance, especially after they have given birth.
Rather than making insensitive comments, it is important for partners to offer support and encouragement to new mothers as they navigate this new chapter in their lives. By doing so, they can help create a positive and supportive environment that will benefit the entire family.
