Leave him first. He's crazy.

I know a couple like this.  They both got COVID, both barely survived, both are turning out to be long-haulers.  She should have left him.  I offered to let he stay at my place until she decided what to do.  But she made her decision, and I don't go to their house anymore.  Because her husband is an asshole.

"I'll shed something dangerous from my body"

Yeah, him.
 
2021-09-16 10:42:00 PM  
Just get the vaccine.
 
2021-09-16 10:43:48 PM  
Leave him. He's stupid.

Get the vaccine

Done in one.

/And get the vaccine
 
2021-09-16 10:52:55 PM  
Get vaccinated without telling him. After he dies you only have your half-wit children to deal with. I'm sorry but this is the best case scenario.
 
2021-09-16 10:54:16 PM  
How would he know if she got the vaccine? He can't watch her every moment.

Oh and she should definitely take the kids and run far away from this nut.

Get the vaccine and increase the life insurance a bunch.

"I'll shed something dangerous from my body"

Wait, I wasn't told about this!  Are we all going to shed the same thing, or do different vaccines shed different things?  I got the J&J.  What do I get to shed?

Put your foot up his ass.

Get vaxxed.

If he asks you say it's none of his goddamn business and beat him within an inch of his cracker-ass life for daring to ask.

Then beat him again.

If he hasn't left by that point he's a beta soyboy cuck anyway.

She should get the vaccine without telling him. Then take out a big life insurance policy on him. Then suggest to go to risky places.
Profit?
 
2021-09-17 2:59:05 AM  
Why stress over it? He'll be dead soon, anyway

Butt stuff.

It's never good when a couple has this profound of a difference. This isn't hating the navy blue statement wall they insisted on, this is kind of a big thing, like a life and death big thing. He gets to decide what medical care he gets or refuses but she gets the exact same privilege. Get the vax, if he leaves that cuts her risk by 50% at least.

You kind of wonder how many red flags she ignored leading up to this point.

Get the vaccine in secret.

When he inevitably contracts the virus, let the last thing he hears before they put him on a ventilator be that you got the vaccine without his knowledge.

Not if he keeps this anti-vaccine shiat up.

Benevolent Misanthrope: I know a couple like this.


So do I, through my wife.  Her friend is a Trumper and was, until very recently, unvaccinated.  After she got her first shot, her even dumber husband won't be in the same room with her anymore because he claims she's now infectious.  The irony, of course, being that he also claims that COVID is a hoax, so apparently she's threatening him with a non-existent disease.

She keeps telling my wife they need to get together, get caught up.  My wife, ever the diplomat, can't tell her the real reason why she doesn't want to see her again.

I had the Moderna, so two shots. Does that make me "two sheds"?

Yeah, not so easy to just bolt with 4 kids in tow and no job.  And if he's as nutty as the letter implies, leaving the kids with him isn't an option.

Get the vaccine, look him square in the eye and say, "Race you!"

We've only let vaccinated family members come in from Tennessee to meet our son who was born in March with one exception. My 9 year old nephew who already had a case of COVID in February came over in May. I figured he still had enough antibodies but I told him that they probably wouldn't last so he might not see his cousin for a while until at least one of them could get the shots.

He told me that his daddy said he never needed to get the vaccine because he had already had the disease. I'm not going to argue with a 9 year old about whether his daddy's high school taught immunology so I changed the subject.

I got a call from his mother last night. I'm sure you can guess what she had to say.

He'll probably be fine again. For him he just got like a three day migraine both times, which sucks when you're a little kid, but hey, two weeks off from school after that, so not too bad.

At least my wife managed to pretty much bully everybody in the family who could get vaccinated to do it. Maybe that'll keep him from infecting the rest of them. Except his dad of course. fark him.
 
2021-09-17 7:28:04 AM  
Go get the shot, then lock him in a room with a bunch of smart people who are good teachers and have them unbrainwash him. Like an intervention. Bring some pie charts... and pie. mmm...pie....
 
2021-09-17 7:49:50 AM  
Get the vaccine and openly tell him. When he leaves you and if you ever end up in court you can bring this up as the reason. You're splitting up anyway, might as well make it look very bad for him.

Considering she's had four kids from him I'd say plenty.

"MAY" leave you?  What kind of a limp-dick threat is that?  He hasn't got the balls to leave you, so yourself and all of us a favour - get vaccinated and when he doesn't leave, kick his sorry arse out.
 
2021-09-17 8:09:22 AM  
Get the vaccine,

Pretty sure a judge will award you custody of your kids seeing how your husband is reckless with their health.
 
2021-09-17 8:12:11 AM  
You get the vaccine and tell your plague rat husband to get farked. There are people out there without demon tainted plague blood.
 
2021-09-17 8:12:32 AM  
Something similar happened to a friend of my daughter. Her father is a big Trumper and his wife secretly got the vaccine without telling him. Sadly, she isn't able to easily get her 12yo daughter vaccinated without him knowing.
 
2021-09-17 8:13:15 AM  
My son's roommate's parents freaked out that their son got the vaccine despite that being a requirement to attend classes on campus this year. They wanted him to pay for a fake card. Why yes, they are Trump supporters. How did you guess?

Get vaccinated. When he says he is going to leave you, ask him why he wouldn't want to inherit your retirement fund when you die in 2 years? Once he realizes his ultimatum was pointless, ditch the zero and get with a hero.

EIP.

Stay-at-home  moms generally don't have retirement funds.
She dies, he has to pay for daycare for 4 kids. This will not be inexpensive.

It's not so much a question of whether to GTFO and GTFV, but how best to accomplish the GTFO part while minimizing risk.

As an unvaxxed, it doesn't seem like "responsibility" is something he takes seriously, so he probably isn't going to be paying for no commie daycare.
