Make it make sense!
Mother-in-law says I stink.
She told me this, a day before my wedding to her son.
I’ve not been the same ever since.
My husband has noticed the change in me and I haven’t been able to bring myself to tell him what happened. – It’s been 3 months since we walked down the aisle and I’ve changed my perfume five times already.
The worse part is – she didn’t stop there. When we got back from our honeymoon, she was waiting for us at home.
I reached out for a hug but she pulled away.
“Do you still smell?” – That was what she said after pulling away.
Then my husband walked in at the moment.
She left the next morning not after she told me – you still stink. Get yourself checked out.
No one has ever told me I smell – but somehow my mother-in-law has a nose for everything.
I tend to hide from my husband ever since she left that morning.
Just last night, I asked him – if he thinks I should change my perfume.

He coiled up and stared for a minute.
Is it because you smell? – He said quietly.
For a moment, I thought I heard wrong.
“You think I stink?”
He nodded. My world shook at that moment.
I found out later he’s always known and it wasn’t a big deal for him. In fact, he said, it wasn’t until a year ago that he started perceiving it.
We dated for 3 years. So apparently, I started smelling just a year ago.
My trust in him is broken.
I have friends, family and parents – Why hasn’t anyone ever told me I smell?
I wished he had told me earlier – I’m seeing a skin specialist now.
Is it right that I now despise him? – I still love him and we are still together but i can’t just look at him the same.
