Her Friends Mocked Her Husband for Not Being a Big Reader, but When Called Him ‘Uneducated’, He Decided to Give Her a Piece of His Mind

On a casual evening at a small house party, a woman and her husband, known as Will, found themselves in a conversation about books. Despite this benign subject matter, the woman would soon make a statement that would cause a significant relationship upset.

During the discussion, one of the woman’s friends, Steve, directed a question to Will, inquiring about his favorite book. Will responded with, “Oh, I really like ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’”. However, Steve appeared puzzled and questioned further, asking if Will had ventured beyond high school literature. Will hesitated and admitted, “Outside of navy manuals at work, I guess I haven’t.”

The woman attempted to diffuse any tension by chiming in, stating, “Oh yeah, he’s not well educated and he works in the navy, so he’s never had a reason to be well-read.” The comment was met with laughter, and the atmosphere lightened momentarily. Nonetheless, Will’s engagement in the conversation dwindled.

As the night concluded, the couple embarked on a car ride back home, during which Will remained notably quiet. The woman, concerned about his demeanor, asked if he was okay. Will’s response, laced with sarcasm, was a simple, “Peachy.”

Concerned, the woman probed further, inquiring if she had done something to upset him. Will replied with frustration, saying, “I don’t know. I don’t think I’m educated enough to properly explain myself.” The tension escalated as they exchanged harsh words.

Will felt that his wife had portrayed him as unintelligent to her friends, which hurt him deeply. The woman clarified that she had only mentioned his lack of college education, not his intelligence.

The man remained furious. He had worked incredibly hard to achieve his navy education and felt that his wife was greatly undermining this. However, she took a firm stance in responding that they were talking about two very different types of education.

The couple’s disagreement continued throughout the car ride, leading to a heated argument upon reaching home. The man was angry that his wife would not apologize for or admit her mistake, yet she believed that she had not said anything out of line.

Seeking advice and validation, the woman reached out to her sister through text messages. However, she did not receive the response that she had hoped for. “She called me a huge jerk and said that I needed to apologize”, she recounted. “Now I’m having second thoughts about how I handled this.”

Seeking a second opinion, the woman headed online to recount the argument, asking what other people thought. To her dismay, she was berated for her harsh words. “Let’s put aside your husband’s incredibly difficult job for a moment”, one commenter started. “On what planet does anyone think calling their partner “uneducated” is ok? That is never okay. EVER!!!”

She Should Have Defended Him

One commenter noted that the woman could have easily switched the situation up to defend her husband. “You should have made Steve the butt of the joke for making that stupid comment, to begin with”, they wrote.

“Your husband works on nuclear reactors for goodness sake!”, exclaimed another reader. “He must be incredibly intelligent to achieve this, and your college degree would be useless in his field of work. Please take your elitist attitudes elsewhere and remember that practical skills are JUST as valuable as intellectual ones.”

Everyone felt bad for Will and agreed that the woman and her friends seemed incredibly stuck-up. “Your pretentious group might believe itself to be well-read, but it clearly lacks any social intelligence”, mocked one commenter.
