Man faces backlash to wife’s success in boxing class: ‘Fragile and serious masculinity’


A man doesn’t want to go to the gym with his wife anymore because she beat him in a boxing match.

He shared the incident on Reddit‘s”Am I the A******? (AITA)“forum. When his wife beat him in a boxing match, spectators heckled him about the loss. Now he doesn’t want to train with her anymore because he thinks he doesn’t have enough time to train to beat her.

“My wife and I train together,” he said. wrote. “I train a little less since I recently created a start-up. We also occasionally go boxing at the same place where we train.

“Although we don’t try to hurt each other, the matches are still quite competitive. In the past I was able to win, but yesterday my wife actually beat me.

When people started “heckling” him about the loss, he also lost interest in training with his wife.

“Some a****** started heckling me,” he said. Explain. “My wife just told me to ignore her. But I could tell she was really happy to beat me. Honestly, I don’t want to train with her anymore because I just feel like our relational dynamics have completely changed.

“I know that if I trained more and spent more time training, I would win boxing matches against my wife. But I can’t do that now because I’m very busy, and until I’m not so busy, I don’t want to train or box with my wife anymore.

“So it’s OK for her to lose repeatedly, but you lose once and you can’t take it? Serious fragile masculinity,” one user mentioned.

“It ‘changed the dynamic of the relationship’ because it hurt his ego, and now he’s bothered,” another wrote.

“The fact that you can physically dominate your wife is part of your relationship dynamic?” someone commented.
