Wife Demands Husband Turn Down 'Dream Job' At Risk Of Her Career, Or She'll Divorce Him

A big part of marriage, and relationships in general, is being able to make compromises for the other person. The mutual love and respect you have for your partner is the glue that holds you together and helps you get through those tricky give-and-take moments in your relationship. But sometimes things aren't so straight forward, and it's not clear who should give and who should take. One woman posted on the popular AITA thread on Reddit, wondering if she was the a**hole for asking her husband to give up his dream job because it would risk her career. At first glance, you might think so, because whose job comes first; hers or his? But as she explains the situation, it becomes apparent that he was prepared to sabotage her very high-paying niche career for a job that paid less than half her salary, and that he applied for behind her back. Everyone jumped to her defense, explaining very clearly how she is not the a**hole and that she should proceed with divorce proceedings, as advised by her company. Read through her post and the comments below and decide for yourself who is in the wrong. Although it's pretty clear what the answer is.

Man Thinks It's Too Soon To Move In With Pregnant GF, Causes Uproar

Having unprotected sex is fun and games until you end up with an unplanned pregnancy. Of course, having a baby is a blessing and a gift and something to be treasured. Still, when it comes as a surprise (aka a mistake), it forces you to recalibrate your future and embrace the responsibilities of parenthood perhaps earlier than you might have wanted to. I guess the age-old adage of "don't be silly, wrap your willy" is correct. Ideally, both parents should embrace the challenge of parenthood equally, however, some men try playing the "I'm not ready for fatherhood" card to shirk parental responsibility and carry on living a single lifestyle. Of course, these men are idiots, especially those who didn't wear a condom during sex.  

One guy on Reddit's r/AmITheAsshole thread got himself in this exact situation and has caused somewhat of an uproar upon asking if he was the ahole. In short, he didn't use a condom during sex (by his own admission) got his GF of eight months pregnant, and then claimed he felt it was too early for them to move in together to raise the baby. He admits that his friends and family think he's a massive tool, and it sounds like his GF is sick of his sh*t. I would be too! But it's safe to say that 99% of Redditers agree with them, and lay into the OP pretty hard. What do you think of the situation? Is he the ahole?

Woman Rejects Engagement Ring Originally Bought For BF's Ex, Debate Ensues

Getting engaged is one of the most exciting moments in a person's life; a moment of love, commitment, and pure happiness. The engagement ring is the symbol of all these emotions, and so it has to be special. Some girls know exactly what type of ring they want and drop numerous hints, so their BF's can come prepared. Others have no idea, and so they get proposed to with a temporary ring and then choose one together, afterward. And sometimes, the guy has a family heirloom with which to propose. But what happens when the guy proposes with a ring that he already used to propose to his ex-girlfriend? Is it OK to recycle engagement rings, or is that totally weird? One Reddit user found herself in that exact position and wants to know if she's an a**hole for not wanting to accept the ring. The responses were mostly in her favor, but some people jumped in to defend her seemingly clueless fiance. Check out the debate below...
