Twist In The Story of a Wife Angry With Husband For Missing Emergency Because of a Tech-Free Weekend

On Reddit, someone recently asked the “Am I The A**hole” (AITA) subthread whether they were wrong for missing an emergency since they had turned off their phone on a tech-free weekend.

The Original Poster (OP) explained that he and his best friend have a traditional yearly weekend trip away, and it’s phone free.

They’ve been doing it for a decade, allowing them to reconnect and explore a city.

OP added, “Still, we liked to keep one on hand for navigation and emergency purposes, and it would usually be Friend’s phone that we brought along.”

The most recent trip was the first since OP had gotten married. During their engagement, when these weekends happened, his wife didn’t seem to have a problem.

This time was different. OP explained, “I understand that there are different expectations once you get married, but I didn’t expect for the 180 in behavior.

My wife all but demanded I take my phone as well in case she needed to get ahold of me despite her having Friend’s number.”
