A woman has requested for a sperm donor to have children because she doesn’t think her husband is “attractive” enough. Her husband has taken to Reddit to share his shock upon discovering this.
The unnamed 30-year-old wrote: “When talking about children (we want to start soon), she suggested a sperm donor because then the child will (supposedly) have a better chance at a good life.
“I was incredibly confused and asked her to explain, to which she explained that if the baby had genes of an incredibly attractive and smart man (tried not to be insulted at that) then he/she would live an easier life and be happier.
“She’s not wrong in that more attractive people live life easy, but it’s just so hurtful to think that your wife doesn’t think you’re good enough to have children with.”
He goes on to claim that the real reason his wife wants to use a sperm donor is because of “her own insecurity” and then proceeds to say some not very complimentary things about her.
“If I’m being objective, my wife is incredibly smart but not jaw-dropping beautiful and though she has a healthy fit body, her face is not perfect,” he said. “She is imperfectly perfect to me but she’s only a solid 6/7.
“I think her own insecurity might in part play a role since she struggled with not being a beautiful woman in her younger days and said how life is easier to be good looking.”
At the end of the post, the husband reveals that despite everything he’s been considering her bizarre suggestion as he just wants to “fix the problem” with their marriage.
However he later adds an update to this after having another chat with his wife – and this is where things get really weird.
The man reveals he woke up at 4am and they had a two hour discussion about the whole thing, which involved a lot of crying.
During this conversation he discovered that his wife had already found a sperm donor – and she’d been having an affair with him!
“I asked if she knew a donor and she kept mentioning her colleague/our friend which I didn’t think much of at first,” he explained.
“Turns out she’s been cheating on me with him ( a married man who has been to our house for dinner, whose f***ing hands I shaked) and realised she wanted her kids to be like him (a handsome doctor).”
The heartbroken husband then declares that he’s going to begin divorce proceedings and “destroy her in court” right after he calls the doctor’s wife and tells her about the affair.
