A devastated husband shared that his terminally ill wife has communicated a particular wish.
Feeling like he had no one to confide in, he turned to Reddit to discuss this heartbreaking situation.
In his post, the husband expresses how utterly devastated he was upon learning about his wife's terminal illness.
They had been married for ten years, and he describes her as the love of his life. The doctors have given her a maximum of nine months to live.
"I don't remember life without her and I don't know what I'm going to do when she's gone. I have been doing my best to make the last days of her life good and grant whatever wish I can," he said.
"The doctors said that she was likely to need a wheelchair in 4 or 5 months, then by month 8 she'll be bedridden for the last few weeks. That's if she doesn't decline faster."
Adding to the already difficult circumstances, his wife had a heartfelt conversation with him, sharing her dying wish to 'be intimate with a previous partner of hers'.
I must say, it's quite surprising.
He explained: "I of course was shocked and when I asked why the f**k she wants that."
"So basically she thinks that her most physically compatible satisfying lover was him."
"She gave a whole monologue about how sex sometimes is just physical and how emotionally fulfilling sex is with me but it was bulls**t to get to that point."
"So now I'm left with this, deny my dying wife a wish for my own ego, or let her go f**k another man who she feels was better," he continued.
"Honestly, I'm so p***ed off and betrayed that she asked this of me."
"I feel like I'm put in a position where I have to say yes because she's dying."
"I know what I want to say, but I don't know if that's right. I'm so hurt that sex with an ex was apparently so good that she needs to do it once before she dies. I just hate everything about this."
"I'm really not sure what to do."
The comments section on Reddit was filled with some seriously harsh remarks from fellow Redditors.
"If this is a real story, well then, just pack her stuff and let her live with her ex for the rest of her time," one person said.
Another added: "Sorry but her illness is not an excuse to treat you like s**t. That is incredibly insulting to you and your relationship."
A third expressed: "This seems like a very odd request to bring to you without any leg work or preparation."
"That she would significantly risk blowing up her marriage and end of life companionship and care for sex with someone she isn't in contact with and doesn't know would still even entertain the thought of intimacy with her."
Truly, the situation is beyond comprehension.
