Communication has often been accredited as the key to a healthy relationship. However, there are situations when communication can be taken out of context.
According to the Huffington Post, one man’s wife has been seething since she received a fairly odd email from her husband. The unidentified man reportedly sent his wife a spreadsheet chronicling her behavior, along with a list of her excuses on the days she refused to have sex with him. The 26-year-old woman allegedly shared the spreadsheet on Redditt under the username, throwwwwaway29. The jaw-dropping list was posted in the /r/relationships community.
The spreadsheet chronicles the entire month of June and almost everyday in July. The logged information is broken down into three different columns. The first column lists all of the dates he recorded, while the second column indicates whether or not they were intimate on the date specified. The third column lists the excuses she gave him for each of the dates she refused to have sex with him.
Here’s what she had to say:
“My husband [M26] sent me [F26] an immature, inflammatory email as I was driving to the airport for a 10-day work trip. Now he has cut contact.”
According to Deadspin, the woman actually explained the series of events that led up to the jaw-dropping spreadsheet. In the description, she revealed her husband sent the spreadsheet to her via email while she was on her way to the airport. She went on to explain that the spreadsheet chronicled seven weeks and 27 attempts. He cited they only had sex three times out of the 27 attempts. Now, he refuses to communicate with her at all. However, the post is now considered private.
But, ironically it received over 700 comments before the change was made to her profile. Surprisingly, a lot of users had mixed opinions about her husband’s unconventional approach.
“If someone refused to have sex with me over & over & over again despite my repeated attempts, culminating in them only agreeing to it 3 times in 7 weeks, and they used the same excuses each time, excuses which could be easily remedied, it would make me feel like they didn’t want me anywhere near them,” one user wrote.
“I see the spreadsheet as being the last resort. I actually believe, as posted elsewhere that the husband has tried to discuss this on occasion. Eight weeks ago he got fed up of being told that he was talking crap. He therefore kept a list of the dates and reasons given, so as to say “here you go, deny this lot then – in the same way you have been denying it before,” another user wrote.
However, most people accredited their issues to poor communication. Do you agree with the way he approached his wife?
