He Still Lived With His Soon-To-Be-Ex Wife, but When She Brought a New Guy Over, He Couldn’t Handle It, Even Though He’d Had Someone Over Too

A man recently went online to ask if he’d overreacted when his estranged wife brought her new man over for the night. Here’s his story.

They were divorcing

“I still live with my soon-to-be ex-wife,” the 27-year-old began. “It’s not an arrangement born of choice, more of not having good options to move out yet.”

“She and I are both open to seeing other people, and we have an amicable relationship geared towards cooperating for the sake of our two-year-old child.”

She had a new man

The man explained that his soon-to-be ex had invited a new guy over whom she’d only known for a few days. He was fine with this, thinking that the guy wouldn’t still be there when he got home from work at 2:30 a.m.

But he was wrong.

The man went to bed, but he realized he felt quite anxious about trying to sleep with a complete stranger in the house.

Eventually, it got too much. The man tried calling his ex, but she didn’t answer. He summoned up some courage and went and knocked on her bedroom door.

He asked his ex if he could talk to her. She said, “Not right now, no.” He stressed that it was important, and she eventually agreed and came out of her room.

She was angry

The man’s ex was mad at him for knocking on her door. He explained that he’d tried calling her, but she still said that he was rude. He explained his anxiety. She told him to go back to his room and said she’d deal with it.

The man’s ex told the new guy to leave, but she was still raging at the man for crossing so many boundaries. She told him that she would never have done such a thing with the woman he’d recently been seeing.

They argued

The man countered that he hadn’t invited his girlfriend to stay overnight so soon after meeting her. The woman argued that she and the guy had just fallen asleep watching TV, nothing more.

He said sorry

The next day, the woman was still upset and said that the guy probably wouldn’t text back because she still lived with her husband. He apologized if he’d made her feel bad but argued that he hadn’t ordered her to kick the guy out.

Was he wrong?

The man asked the internet if he should have handled his anxiety about the situation better.

A lot of people told the man he needed to wise up. “She’s your roommate now,” said one. “It sounds like the breakup has really hit you now. Get over it. She’s not your property.”

But others were more critical of his ex’s behavior. “There’s so much wrong with this,” said one. “You don’t bring a total stranger around your kids like that. You guys seriously need to set some boundaries—one of which should be no dates near your kid unless you’ve been seeing them for at least three months.”
