She Wants to End Her Engagement Because She Can’t Stand Her Fiancé’s Obsession with Football

A woman is about to marry her partner, but there’s a big issue. Her fiance is overly obsessed with football, and now she’s wondering if she wants to be with someone like that. Here’s what she had to say.

They’ve been together for five years

The woman has been with her fiancé for around five years, and they got engaged 12 months ago.

Her partner loves football

Her partner has always been a massive football fan and follows the latest news religiously. He even brings up football at every opportunity—a real superfan, so to speak.

She didn’t mind

It wasn’t too much of an issue at first. The woman even played along, showing interest in her fiancé’s football team, so they had something to talk about. She’d sometimes also wear a jersey on game day to show him that she supported his hobby.

It got too much

But in the last few months, she feels that the sport is turning her partner into someone she doesn’t recognize.

He’s gone crazy

In her own words, he “absolutely loses it.”

He screams at the top of his lungs, slams the floor, hits the chair he’s sitting in and punches his fist into the desk while watching games on the computer.

The woman finds this a bit embarrassing, but it impacts her in other ways. She has extreme anxiety, and loud noises and aggressive behavior trigger symptoms, even when it’s not directed at her.

Her partner says he’ll do better

Her partner knows this, as she has explained it to him over and over and over again. He does listen to her and promises to tone it down. But all that goes out the window after kick-off when he turns into a lunatic again.

Bad days are the worst

The worst is when his team loses or has a bad game. If it looks like it’s going to happen, she stays well out of his way. The woman even admitted to being afraid of sitting in the same room with him when the game was on.

Furthermore, it is also impacting their time together. Sundays and Mondays are the only days the couple has off. But as these are football days, her partner rarely offers to take her out or go somewhere nice with her for a few hours. And on the few occasions, they go out, he spends half the time watching football on his phone and checking the latest team news.

She’s not sure she wants to carry on

She recently told her partner that she doesn’t think she can spend the rest of her life dreading Sunday and Monday nights. And the fact that her partner seems to love football more than he cares about harming the woman’s mental health and self-esteem.

So the woman asked an internet forum if you could break up an engagement due to football?

People responded

One user said, “I don’t think you’re being unreasonable. Living in a constant state of panic and dread is not healthy at all. Eventually, that panic will just turn into full-blown resentment, and the marriage will be over anyways.”

Another said, “He’s a grown man in a relationship. If he knows that he is making you uncomfortable and causing an issue between you, he needs to stop the behavior. It’s fine to be passionate about something, but your partner shouldn’t be afraid of you. Have you ever said those words to him: “I’m afraid of you.” If so, what’s his response?”
