Self-described “very curious person” and Redditor awakiri2 stumbled upon a USB drive containing an album of unpleasant photos of her husband and her mother doing that thing you assume your husband will never actually do with your mother.
Pssst… It's sex.
In a post in the TwoXChromosomes subreddit, awakiri2 described the shock at cleaning out shoeboxes from a closet and finding a USB stocked with 50 incriminating photos of the two loved ones.
The Redditor wrote,
I felt one thousand times betrayed when I saw them. I supposed the pictures are from before we got married they were at my mom's house but she doesn't own that house anymore. My husband used to work for my mom that's how I met him but he was just an employee it never crossed my mind there was any attraction since my mom is 30 years older than him… Neither of them ever told me about being together and my mom was really happy for me when she was at my wedding.
Awakiri2, who understandably classified the secret as “disgusting” and “f*cking weird,” beseeched the Reddit community for advice.
Some users claimed history is history and not worth starting an awkward argument over. Others insisted the fact the husband's ex-partner was awakiri2's mother made this case special.
Many agreed the husband's act of keeping the photos was the largest thorn in the otherwise beautiful rose of this marriage.
One user, DuckGoesQuackMoo, dissented from those likening the event to forgetting an old sext or an ex's underwear at the bottom of the hamper and talked some sense.
The Redditor wrote,
Seriously? How are there so many people that find it morally acceptable to never tell the person? Relationships with trust involve sharing details of your previous partners, especially if they're your freaking mother.
It sucks, though, to live in a world where, prior to walking down the aisle, one must wonder,
Does he/she seem like he/she would ever f*ck my mother/father?
Here's hoping the answer is at least,
