My Husband Won’t Let Me Take More than Two Showers a Week – I Learned His Reason When I Visited My MIL

My husband can be quite eccentric, but when he came up with a new and restrictive rule, our home life turned into a battleground. He couldn’t quite explain his new convictions and refused to budge. Yet, when I found the reason underlying his demeanor, changes began happening in our lives.

I’ve always known that my husband, Ethan, had his peculiarities. As a gifted computer programmer, his mind is a complex blend of logic and wild conjecture. His beliefs, as varied as they are, have often charmed me, painting him as both intelligent and quirky.

He’s a sweet and loving darling of a husband, and I really love him.

However, lately, his eccentricities have shifted into something more oppressive. They were particularly about something as mundane as our household water usage. It began innocently enough with the installation of an advanced water filtration system.

I must admit, the water tasted heavenly after that, and I appreciated the upgrade. But Ethan’s focus on water didn’t stop at ensuring its purity. His concern escalated to the point of obsession with how much we used.

He implemented a household rule that felt both arbitrary and severe. We were to limit ourselves to only two showers per week! I must admit, this is the strangest rule he’s ever come up with!

As someone who cherished and must have my nightly showers before bed, this new rule was a drastic change. Initially, I tried to work around his restrictions by sneaking showers at our local gym.

But trying to balance this alongside our family duties and children was a nightmare! When I attempted to defy the new house rule by stealing extra showers at home, Ethan shut me down!

He literally would cut off the hot water abruptly mid-shower after I had surpassed our “quota!”

The ongoing battle between us escalated last night, reaching a boiling point! After denying my warm retreat again by shutting off the heat, I confronted him. At this point, my frustration had boiled over.

“Ethan, this is the dumbest thing you’ve ever done!” I yelled as he met my anger with a resigned gaze. “If some sort of compromise or change doesn’t happen, I am going to move back to my parents’ house!”

Despite my threats, he still refused to relent! In the heat of the moment, words flew like daggers, piercing the calm of our once peaceful home. “You’re turning our home into a battleground over showers! Do you hear yourself?” I retorted, my voice sharp with incredulity.
