Today, I've been bedridden for the past two weeks. My boyfriend casually remarked that he understands now why some people cheat on their seriously-ill partners. Thanks for adding to the stress, sweetie. FML

Later: Local man found severely injured outside his apartment, it looks as though he will be bedridden for weeks!


Idk. In his defense, he's being honest that he now understands why someone would do it. Also, there's no proof yet that he has cheated so its simply an observation on his part. If he has the willpower to not cheat despite understanding why someone else would do it I give him even more props.

True. But that's a topic that should and can be discussed during a good episode and not on top of a really bad one where you have enough stress with literally everything else.

It's not as though he's actually cheating on her. It was more of, he never used to understand why any one could cheat on a SO when they were really sick and now he understand what they might have been tempted by... Why FML gotta be all, dump the guy who's been by your side during these 2 sick weeks and probably for longer, just because of some small comment.

Anyone ever stop and think maybe he was just making a joke? The reason its an FML is because the joke still causes her anxiety?

That's just ******* rude though. Think if you were sick and your girlfriend said that to you.

I wouldn't stress it if I were you. Now you know what kind of man you have by your side, and he's clearly not one worth keeping.

It's not just a small comment, that's no way to talk to your significant other if you actually care and have respect for them. I would have never said something like that to my man when I took care of him for a month due to a flu, especially since he's already sick, why make him feel worse. Cheating isn't something to make a joke out of and there's never an excuse to do it. If you are too weak that those thoughts cross your mind after just two weeks, then you have no business being in a relationship in the first place.!

If it were up to the FML community the divorce rate would be 90%. Of course it was an innapropriate joke but if I ever dated someone whose only flaw was to make a bad joke every now and then I would never let them go.

Can't believe how many people are saying dump him. No wonder relationships never last these days. Do people actually TALK to their partners anymore? Or is immediately dumping someone because they say something you don't like considered the normal thing to do nowadays?

"Today, my seriously-ill girlfriend had been bedridden for two weeks. I haven't had sex in all this time. FML" I can see that.

That guy probably doesn't even love you.

It's probably true though, if he doesn't even sound guilty while telling her he cheated.

What the ****? Where does it say he cheated? Eh? He simply stated that he understands why some people would. He did nothing wrong as far as we the readers can tell.

29 - you're right, but it was still implied that he did. Why else would he even talk about it then?

It doesn't say he cheated, but come on, would you seriously say that to someone you loved, especially being in that condition? A similar situation would be me fighting with my mom and then saying: "I understand why some people kill their moms...". You just don't say those things. Maybe that's just me.

Why? It was a joke/stupid comment. The boyfriend seems to be more ignorant than cruel and kicking him out over that is an overreaction.

If you castrate him, then he will also need time to recover, and you can make that same joke back to him.

Always with the phallic mutilation in these comments. If someone were to suggest carving up a ******, everyone would flip shit. I demand gender equality.

UnluckyGenius 21

I am obviously not ready to take gender equality seriously since your serious eye opening statement made me giggle.

I'm all for rapist being castrated so in my opinion a women rapist should have her ****** sewn up or something similar to being physically unable to rape again.

Kick that ass out of your life! Get better soon OP! You need a decent human being right now, or no one at all...

Haha that's reassuring. xD Get well soon, OP!

seriously ill? it's 2 weeks not 2 years...

Exactly. How vs he compare 2 weeks to years? It's like an extended stay on a period. Get over it. Lol

You're overlooking the fact that she's BEDRIDDEN for two weeks, not just ill. It takes a serious illness for someone to not be able to leave their bed for two weeks.

Award for boyfriend of the month goes to OP's lovely boyfriend.

Whoops, looks like you've gotten that name mixed up!
