A man who opened his home to his recently divorced brother was furious after claiming his wife “let herself go”.

Finally, to stop the cruel comments, he sniped back by making a heated joke about his “nasty divorce.”

His wife used to work as a sports model and was severely underweight at the time due to the strict diet she had to follow.

These days she is said to be “a lot happier” having gained a healthy amount of weight and muscle.

His brother, who he calls Chris, is said to be “extremely wealthy” but – due to his recent divorce – will be staying with them for a few weeks before moving to his new home. During this time he was less than respectful.

Speaking on Reddit, the angry man said: “Chris has a ‘guy,’ to put it simply. He believes that every woman should subscribe to his type.

“Any woman who doesn’t conform to his preferences is automatically ugly and unlovable. He wants all women to meet his standards, hell or high water.

“Two days ago Chris found some of Elle’s old magazine covers and commented on how beautiful she was back then. It’s an innocuous comment, sure, but he kept pointing out just how much ‘she lets herself go’. I mean, always brought it up.”

According to this man posting under the username u/brotherdivorceAITA, Chris made misplaced criticism when Elle left for her evening run, telling her, “Run fast enough to lose any slack bits.”

Elle just rolled her eyes and laughed, but he didn’t find it funny at all and told his brother to “shut up.”

Similar comments were made when Elle went to the gym the next day, after which the unnamed man again told him to end his fixation on his wife’s body.

Elle remained unimpressed after she “got used to it,” but her husband finally reached a breaking point after a particularly personal “joke.”

He continued, “As Elle served him food, he joked about paying for her tummy tuck so ‘I can marry the real version of Elle.’ (The correct version is the thinner version of her.) I was taken aback by that comment.

“I told him that ‘his wife married the wrong version of him’ and that he should pack up and leave my house. He didn’t take it well and complained about how insensitive I was to his situation and how I felt about it made low blow.

“He ended up leaving but Elle tells me I could have kicked him out without the comment.”

He now wonders if he could have asked his brother to leave without taking revenge in this way and turned to other Reddit users for advice.

One person wrote: “Ok it was a blow over his divorce but given the off-putting nature of his comments and the fact that he specifically insulted your wife – while you put a roof over his head – it’s understandable.

“You are only human. You were a lot more polite than I would have been.”

Another said: “Your wife’s responses are likely a coping mechanism from many years of prejudice and sexual discrimination. You have the right and responsibility as a spouse to be upset and to protect your wife from harm you have done.

“Your brother seems to have very little awareness of his own behavior, which I think contributed to his divorce in the first place. He will either continue this behavior to the point of being completely out of relationships or eventually repair himself.

“Anyway, you don’t have to be around that kind of mess to find out.”
