A Man Was Concerned when His Wife’s Taylor Swift Obsession Was Seemingly Taking Over Her Life and Finances, but When He Confronted Her She Called Him Unsupportive

A man had a wife who was obsessed with Taylor Swift, a love that he initially felt was endearing. However, he soon began to get concerned about this obsession, which was rapidly declining into what he considered to be a serious emotional problem.

The man provided more details of his wife’s undying love for Taylor Swift’s music. “For the last year, that’s all she listens to”, he laughed. “Every Taylor Swift album on one continuous loop when she’s working out or even just walking around the house doing stuff.”

A Big Expense

Listening was one thing, but it was the obsession’s expenses that began to concern the man. “She spent $2k to go see her live recently, and spent another $200 on merch”, he commented. “She filmed the whole show on her phone and will regularly put it on the TV and just watch for hours, it’s a lot.”

It Was Her Lifestyle

The woman often made comments that her obsession with Taylor Swift ‘was a lifestyle’ and that the concert she attended was ‘the best moment of her life’. The man felt that these were quite large statements considering she was talking about a pop star. 

Hard to Relate

The man found his woman’s undying love for Taylor Swift difficult to relate to. “I don’t really get it”, he explained. “I have never been obsessed with anything to that point. I love soccer and would love to watch Messi play, but I could never bring myself to spend $900 for a ticket”.

However, this lack of understanding was beginning to become a problem in the couple’s relationship. He felt that it was simply too much, and he struggled to express emotional support for her sheer love of the pop star, which she often seemed to demand.

Voicing His Concern

On several occasions, the man had tried to approach his wife’s concerning obsession with Taylor Swift. He was mainly concerned about the expenses and felt angry that she was willing to spend so much of their shared finances on a single concert.

However, the woman did not react well to such interventions. “She cited comments I make implying it’s a cult and that the only one winning here is Taylor Swift, that maybe it’s time to focus on other things”, he recalled. “She wants me to stop making comments like that and stop rolling my eyes and be supportive of her and her interests”.

Genuine Concern

Despite his wife’s defense, the man was left with genuine concern about her obsession. He felt that being this obsessed over anything was not healthy, and that balance was important in life. 

Assessing His Concerns

However, the man did sometimes worry that he was overreacting. Whilst the concert was expensive, the man recognized that they had no problem affording it, and it clearly made his wife very happy. He also recognized that Taylor Swift had an enormous audience of similarly obsessed fans and that whilst he couldn’t relate, people spent big on stuff like this all the time. 

Being Cautious

However, the man still felt he should continue to assess the situation cautiously. “It really does seem to be taking over her life, and I thought one of the benefits of marriage was to have someone tell you this kind of stuff”, he lamented. 

Seeking Perspective

The man headed online with his concerns, hoping to find people who could relate and offer him advice. In response, he received mixed reactions. Some readers simply found the woman’s obsession amusing, responding with light-hearted comments: “It seems to me like you are getting in the way of your wife and Taylor Swift’s relationship”, laughed one such comment.

Another Person Commented on The Money

“Just because you’re married doesn’t mean the money she earns isn’t hers to spend… as long as your joint bills are covered she can spend her own money on whatever she likes!”

However, many commenters shared the man’s concern. “You’re not in the wrong here dude – you absolutely are not required to ‘emotionally support’ her super fandom… she seems weird”, empathized one reader.

Couples Therapy

Some comments even took their worries further than the man, suggesting he addressed the problem head-on. “Have you considered couples therapy?” asked one reader. “This type of obsession has gone beyond innocent when she’s spending that kind of money and demanding your emotional investment as well.”

One Reader Also Suggested There Could Be Problems in The Relationship

“Considering the majority of Taylor Swift’s songs are about being treated poorly by men have you thought that maybe she relates to the lyrics because of you? Before you criticize her you should look closer to home to see if you’re actually the problem.”
