There are few things worse than having a spouse cheat on you.

In this case, however, the husband made an accusation without all the facts.

Let’s get all the juicy details!

AITA for telling my husband ” I told you so” and laughing at me when we got the paternity test results?

I (27f) have been married to my husband(28M) for 2 years and gave birth to our daughter 5 weeks ago.

Oh boy, this does seem suspicious.

I’ll try to keep this short so I don’t waste your time with any irrelevant details.

What happened was that our daughter came out with blonde hair and pale blue eyes, while my husband and I have brown hair and brown eyes.

My husband freaked out at this and refused to listen to my explanation that, sometimes, babies are born with lighter hair and eyes that get darker over time.

Honestly, a paternity test seems like a very reasonable demand.

He demanded a paternity test and threatened to divorce me if I didn’t comply, so I did.

After my daughter and I got home from the hospital, my husband went to stay at his parents’ house for the first three weeks to get some space from me, while I recovered and he told them what was happening.

My MIL called and informed me that if the paternity test revealed that the child wasn’t his, she would do anything within her power to make sure that I was “taken to the cleaners” during the divorce.

I had my sister to lean on and help me take care of the baby during this.

We got the results back yesterday, and my husband came home to view them with me.

I was on the couch in the living room, so he sat next to me and we started to read the results.

I hope he learned his lesson.

They showed that he was the father and my husband had this shocked, kinda mortified look on his face with his eyes wide as he stared at it.

I couldn’t help but say, “I told you so.” and started laughing at the way he looked.

I would think he would be happy?

My husband snapped out of his shock, and got mad at me for laughing at him.

We argued for a bit, which was mainly him yelling at me, before my sister came downstairs and my husband shut up.

After that, my husband went back to his parents’ house to “clear his head”, and two-three hours later, my MIL called to scold me about laughing in my husband’s face, because apparently it was kicking him while he was down.

She’s also left a couple nasty texts essentially saying the same thing this morning.

I don’t think I’m an AH, but I’d like outsider perspective on this.


Wow, I think they both reacted poorly to what should be considered good news.

Let’s see what the commenters had to say.
