Well, that’s not a nice thing to say, is it?

Saying that someone isn’t well-read?


That’s exactly what this woman said about her husband…but now she feels sort of guilty about it…

Was she wrong?

Let’s see what’s going on here.

AITA for telling my friends that my husband isn’t well-read?

“My husband (let’s call him Will) is in the Navy, and he works on nuclear reactors on submarines. We’ve been together for 4 years, married for 2.

We were at a small house party with a few friends of mine from college and we were discussing books we’ve all read, when at one point one of my friends (let’s call him Steve) asks Will, “So Will, what’s your favorite book?” and my husband responds, “Oh, I really like To **** A Mockingbird.”

He was honest about it.

Then Steve gives him a quizzical look and asks him, “Have you read any books outside of high school?” and Will hesitates a bit and says, “Outside of manuals at work, I guess I haven’t.”

So then I try to explain to Steve, “Oh yeah, he’s not well educated, so he’s never had a reason to be well read.” We all had a good laugh, but then Will didn’t really contribute a whole lot to the conversation the rest of the night.

He wasn’t happy about it.

On the car ride back, Will was pretty quiet. I ask if he’s fine and all he says in a sarcastic tone is, “Peachy.” I ask him if I did anything to upset him and he responds back with, “I don’t know. I don’t think I’m educated enough to properly explain myself.”

I tell him I didn’t tell my friends that he was unintelligent, just that he wasn’t college educated. He accused me of minimizing how hard his Navy schooling was, but I explained that military education and college education are simply not the same.

We continued to fight until we got home. I texted my sister about what happened and she called me a huge ******* and that I need to apologize and now I’m having second thoughts about how I handled this.


Let’s see how people reacted.
