50 Unhappy Couples Share How Their Partner Completely Changed After Marriage

According to these unhappy couples from Ask Reddit, some people do change after marriage.

28. I was in a relationship with a woman a decade older than me and she had a big personality. It was charming at first, until it wasn’t. I was pretty young then (like 20ish) and reallllly naive. I just followed her every word because I thought she must be right. After all, she was a decade older than me. She would constantly put me down and make fun of the things that I liked. She would talk poorly about me in public, and the sad thing was my self esteem was so low, I just agreed with her. It didn’t help that everyone around us called her “authentic” and “real,” meaning that she was supposedly straight-forward and honest. Turns out; she was just very, very bitter and a bully.

A lot of her friends and coworkers, came forward about her manipulative and awful behavior. A couple of mentors and friends had to step in for me because they saw the emotional abuse happening. It took me a long time to realize what actually was going on and all the ways it affected, and sometimes still affects me. I’ve definitely got trust issues because of that.
