We married for 2 months.
So here’s a thing, I used to use pads for my periods but recently was able to start using tampons (I have medical problems) in comparison, Tampons work 10x better for me, especially when I’m outside…say like at work or travelling.
My husband hates them, he never truly gave a reason other than just say…he doesn’t feel comfortable with me using them. I didn’t think it was a big deal at first since he said he hates a lot of stuff that I do but “puts up” with it any way except for this. He asked that I go back to using pads but I made it clear since it’s my body then I get to decide.
He threw away some tampons he had access to, and I was getting upset but*!!!!* to keep the peace, I just bought a box and hid it away from him. he somehow found it and threw it away. I didn’t find that out till I had my period yesterday and realized I had no tampons to use.
I was tired and too stressed I just yelled at him after he admitted to throwing away the whole box. He argued that I already knew how he felt about this stuff and yet I decided to still keep it around. I lost it and told him he had no right to do this and told him to get over himself already. He stared at me almost about to tear up or something, then walked out.
He later went on about how we, as a couple should take each other’s discomfort into consideration and said he already tried to speak to me about those tampons yet I brushed him off and insulted him and verbally abused him. He also said that if I still insist on using them then I should do it while I’m outside the house but I said that it won’t happen. I feel bad for how it played out but I was just at my wet’s end and in so much pain I lashed out.
Did I go too far here? Does he have a valid point or not?
