She Called Out Her Ex-boyfriend’s New Wife for Being Chronically Unemployed

A young woman stirred up both outrage and suspicion among Redditors after she called out her ex-boyfriend’s new wife for not working. Is it possible she still has feelings for the one that got away? Here is the full story so you can decide for yourself.

He Broke Her Heart

OP dated her ex-boyfriend for about a year, but he broke up with her 5 years ago.

She took it pretty hard at first and even remembers spending an evening sending him embarrassing texts.

It didn’t help that the ex kept sending messages to OP telling her that they should still be friends.

Her heart was broken for real, and she couldn’t bear to still be friendly with him when she knew it wouldn’t go anywhere.

Since then, both of them have moved on, with OP focusing on her career and advancing at a rapid pace.

She has dated a few people here and there, but she has not had a serious relationship since she split with her ex.

OP’s ex-boyfriend, meanwhile, started dating another girl a couple of months after the breakup.

They have been together ever since and recently got married.

OP and her ex still live in the same general area, so their social circles overlap to some degree.

That means that, while they don’t run into each other very often, OP still hears about her ex through the grapevine now and then.

Every so often, though, OP and her ex do find themselves in the same place at the same time.

When that happens, they’re cordial with each other and might chat for a few minutes.

But OP admits that she and her ex-boyfriend’s new wife have never had much to do with each other.

They mostly try to avoid situations where they have to talk, and OP knows that the other woman does not like her very much at all.

OP really doesn’t know much about her ex’s wife, and she doesn’t care to know.

One thing that’s come up in various conversations, though, is that the wife has been unemployed for a pretty long time.

Recently, OP went out with some friends. Her ex and his new wife ended up at the same table with her.

At some point in the conversation, someone asked OP if she was dating anyone.

When OP replied that, no, she wasn’t seeing anyone, her ex’s wife lit up.

The other woman wisecracked that some people were just meant to be single, even adding that “it’s okay.”

That ruffled OP’s feathers, and it embarrassed her. There were about 10 of her other friends at the table, and she was suddenly on the spot.

So, in an instant, OP lashed back. She agreed that maybe some people were meant to be single, just like some other people were meant to stay unemployed forever.

She Could Dish It Out but Couldn’t Take It

That comment hit OP’s ex’s wife like a gut punch, and she broke into tears.

Then she got up from the table and ran out of the bar.

Later that night, OP’s ex-boyfriend texted her to say that she had landed a low blow and that she needed to apologize to his wife.

But OP told her ex she was just reacting to what his wife had said.

OP said she would apologize, but only if the wife apologized first.

The other woman refused to apologize, though, so OP stood her ground, too.

More out of curiosity than anything at this point, OP wonders if she overreacted.

It Was Self Defense

But even if she did, OP feels like she was just defending herself when her ex’s wife attacked.

Most Redditors think OP was justified for lashing out at her ex’s wife. They think the other woman could dish it out but couldn’t take it herself.

She Needs to Move On

But some commenters think that OP is not really over her ex.

They say she needs to stop thinking about him so much and finally move on with her life.
