People Are Sharing the Moment They Realised They’d Married an Idiot and Its Hilarious!

The thing about marriage is, after so many years together and sharing everything, your spouse get to see you warts and all. And, unfortunately, that includes when you have a brain fart moment and do or say something stupid! You know, the kind of thing you can never live down no matter how ‘smart’ you are really!

We are loving this Reddit thread where people share the moment they realised they’d married an idiot. We ‘ve compiled some of the funniest ones for your reading pleasure.

There were bin bags, he’d just picked up the wrong roll and instead of realising, tried to get a dog poo bag in a bin 50 times bigger. (Pinapickle)

My now ex-husband legitimately thought that having a hysterectomy meant that your vagina was removed. I learned this when he asked me how women who had a hysterectomy were able to pee.

On our first road trip, I asked my girlfriend (now wife) to take over driving for a bit. She got in the driver’s seat, paused, and said “Don’t be alarmed… but can you remind me which one is the gas and which one is the brake?”
