AIBU? by Danny Dice

£4.00

A woman posts on Mumsnet asking if she is being unreasonable constantly snapping at her husband whenever he pesters her for sex. She sometimes gives in to his demands for sex and asks if she should leave her husband. Two posters respond: one suggests first that the woman is being abused by her husband, then that he is actually raping her; the second poster is less sure. The woman has made clear she is too exhausted for sex with her husband tonight – will she stay or go?
