It seemed like the Redditors saw right through OP. Despite her best efforts to appear as the supportive wife they seemed to think she was checking to make sure his doctor wasn’t a woman.

One user replied, “Her asking him ‘jokingly’ if the doctor was a woman is a dead giveaway of what her real reasons are.”

Another Redditor blasted OP saying, “First of all, he asked you not to come. That should be enough. Second, you were not there to show him support, you were there to make sure his doctor wasn’t a woman. You sound jealous and irrational, not to mention pushy. Major issues here.”

#14. No Right to Invade Privacy

People overwhelmingly agreed with _sobertaco_ who said, “You don’t have the right to invade your husband’s privacy after he requested to go alone. A signed piece of paper doesn’t give you the right to stalk your husband. You have zero respect for him, obviously.”

What do you think? Was OP trying to show support, or make sure her husband’s doctor wasn’t a woman? Is this love or jealousy?
