Lucy (28f) has always been fond of the cute and harmless nicknames her husband (31m) and his family have given her. But when her husband started calling her 'Lulu', a nickname with a deep emotional connection to her late mother, things took a turn for the worse. Despite explaining the significance of the nickname to her husband, he recently dismissed her feelings, stating that she should be over it by now. Feeling hurt, Lucy packed her bags and is now staying with her sister, wondering if she's overreacting. 😔
