These days, it’s common for couples to really get to know each other intimately before marriage.
Some people are still willing to stick to celibacy before marriage and save the sex for their honeymoon.
Despite not being very religious, one newlywed pair chose to wait to have sex until joining together in matrimony. The bride says her new husband insisted he wanted to do things the “old fashioned” way.
But now the bride believes that this wasn’t really why her husband wanted to wait. The bride thinks that her husband really made up the being “old fashioned” lie so that she wouldn’t know he had a micropenis before they made a lifetime commitment to each other.
The newlywed woman anonymously shared her story on Reddit’s “Am I The A**hole” forum:
So, we only dated for six months. We’ve been engaged for another six and just got married on Saturday. I literally just got back from my honeymoon a couple hours ago. My husband isn’t a religious guy, he just says he is “old fashioned like that.” We got close to fooling around a couple times but it never went far. I tried, but he always stopped after it went “too far”. Anyway, fast forward to now…
Am I the asshole for reading into this and being upset that I waited until my wedding night to find out that he probably isn’t as “old fashioned” as he says he is? I’m not going to shame him and honestly I don’t even know how I’ll broach the topic (and I’m not seeking advice). I honestly just acted like nothing was out of the ordinary and went to town with him, but…I dunno. I kind of feel lied to. Like a halftruth…or something was intentionally withheld from me. This was unexpected, to say the least. And if you read this far, thanks for your time.
Many commenters agreed with the anonymous bride’s take on the problem. Stating that the issue is more about the husband refusing to be honest with her than it is about the size of his penis:
Another commenter said that the newlywed bride probably has a very tough road ahead:
One last commenter said that the bride may potentially have a case for an annulment:
