When couples live together, they are faced with a ton of personal problems right in each other's faces. There are not many places to hide your things or divide space, especially if you live in a smaller home.

Sometimes, couples are faced with problems when they are married and living together and can't see eye-to-eye. So, they seek out advice from others to see if they are wrong.

One wife recently opened up on Reddit about an issue with her husband.

The wife shared that she and her husband have been together for 3 years and married for 2 months. They live together and share a lot of their space together because, well, that's what happens when you're married and you move in with someone.

Recently, the two have come to a divide over something rather personal.

The wife shared that up until this point in their relationship, she used maxi pads for her period. She was "unable" to use tampons previously due to medical problems, but now she has gotten to a point where she can. She thinks tampons are much easier and a better fit for her overall, as many women do agree.

However, her husband does not like tampons.

"My husband Ryan 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," she wrote.

He requested that his wife go back to using pads.

His wife, however, made it clear that it was her body so it was absolutely her choice. But, her husband then went and threw out all of the tampon boxes in the house. So, the Reddit user went and bought another box and decided to keep it tucked away for safekeeping, somewhere she thought her husband would not find it.

But, he found it.

The unfortunate part is that the Reddit user didn't realize that her husband threw out her "secret" stash of tampons until she got her period and needed them—and, was left with nothing 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," she wrote.

The two got into a huge argument.

His wife was in tears over it, but her husband did not budge. He claimed that as a couple, they have to discuss these things. He said that "she knew how he felt about them" and she "used them anyway."

"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," she wrote.

She asked the Reddit community if she had overreacted and if she was wrong.

The Reddit user wanted to know if she was in the wrong for continuing to hide tampons and use them, knowing her husband did not approve. She was also curious if her "lashing out" was over the top and too much.

The majority of people were confused by her husband.

"What is wrong with your husband??? He can be “uncomfortable” with your choice of menstruation products all he wants I guess, but he doesn’t get to make it your problem and he definitely doesn’t get to throw away your tampons. I can’t fathom what on earth he could be thinking," said Reddit user zelda-hime.

Many wondered why he didn't like tampons.

"Is he one of those mouth breathers that believe tampons are in someway pleasurable??

If so tell him to shove a dry tampon up his butt and yank it back out so he can see just how pleasurable it is," shared a Reddit user.

Others said the bigger problem is his disregard for her feelings.

"I think the bigger problem is that he demands his feelings be considered and important to her, but her feelings don’t matter to him. They disagree, so why does he automatically win? ESPECIALLY when it comes to HER body," shared another.

Another said this is going to end badly.

"Okay, ignoring the tampon aspect here, I just ended a 6 year relationship last year. It wasn't a bad relationship and she wasn't a bad person but she loved me in spite of who I was, not because of who I was.

As someone who spent six years with the best intentions doing all the right things to try and make it work, if that's the vibe your relationship has then it's going to exhaust you and fall apart," wrote peoplebuyviews.
