Today, I overheard my wife telling my mother-in-law I was diagnosed with a learning disability earlier this week. She replied, "I always knew he was a retard. Why did you ever marry that idiot?" All my wife did was mutter "I don't know." FML

That's not right, your wife should've stuck up for you. Just because you have a learning disability doesn't mean you're a lesser person or a lesser husband. It just means your brain is wired a little different and that's okay.

It sounds like your wife and mother in law should be diagnosed with a mental bitch ability. FYL OP

Ugh, so sorry OP. Divorce her and don't feel bad about doing it

A bit harsh maybe?

well we all know who the winner is your relationships :/ careful you don't want to be a bitter middle aged woman some day with no husband and kids.

Divorce is simply giving up, true couples work on each other and solve problems becoming more and more in love. Never give up simply because shit is bad

Although I agree that couples should work things out, her reaction would be to me close to a deal-breaker. She is looking down at her husband because he has a disability he cannot control. She doesn't sound like the type of person you can rely on during tough times, which is a pillar of marriage.

Although I don't know for sure as I wasn't there at the time, it could be a flustered woman muttering an answer to get her mum off her back rather than the wife actually saying with conviction that she has no idea why she's even still with her husband? That's how I read the fml but I could be wrong

I agree with #30 full heartedly. She was asked why she ever married him and her response is I don't know??? Clearly she doesn't love him.

agreed. if she don't know why she married him then she doesn't love him. so end it with divorce and move on.

I'm sorry...honestly.

I'm really sorry OP! It's too bad that they don't understand what a learning disability is. I have ADHD, I'm in college, and looking like I'm going to get my B.S. in Meteorology. Best of luck to you dealing with that OP. :)

I have ADD and dyslexia and just got two degrees in engineering and liberal arts :)

That's awesome #38! I couldn't do that. Too much work. :p

Are you on meds for your ADHD #3??

#49, I am not. My parents didn't want me to rely on drugs. My biological mom has a drug problem and they didn't want me to get started because they were afraid that I would get hooked and sell it for money and whatnot.

She did stuck up but only in his ass. Op should have a serious conversation with his wife.

Having a learning disability doesn't even mean you're retarded either. They are the retards for thinking it.

You have no idea how many times I was made fun of for being autistic. They call me stupid, yet I'm smarter than they are. Hang in there OP!

So glad to hear someone put it like that. My boyfriend has Aspergers and whenever he worries about it I tell him that there's nothing wrong with him as far as I'm concerned, he just thinks things through a little differently than most people. and I happen to love the way he thinks

Dump them both. Clearly you were both mistaken.

Wow. double whammy there mate. what are you going to do?

YDI for that one

How does he deserve it he has a learning disability something he can't control his mother in law is a bitch and his wife agrees with her

like mother like daughter buddy, good luck with youre dealing with

somethings wrong! Why do they get along?

It's his mother in law meaning it's his wife's mother. Mother and daughters usually get along, usually lol

From what Netflix taught me, they usually don't ;D
