Husband Calls Me Heartless When I Didn’t Agree To His Infertile Friend’s Request.

Choosing a name for your child is a huge decision that many expectant parents struggle with. After all, you’ll be calling your child by that name for the rest of your life, so it should be something both the parents like. However, what if a third person gets involved in choosing a baby’s name. Please read the tale to know what happened and share your thoughts on the wife’s decision.

My husband (m33)s best friend (m37) Will is infertile. He got divorced 2 times because of it and because he lied and hid his infertility. And his life hasn’t been the same the day he was told he can’t have kids. He has always had a soft spot for children and when he found out that my husband and I are expecting, he was so thrilled and started buying us gifts and decor pieces that he made from his woodwork for the baby. My husband thinks that those are all nice gestures but I couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable especially with how much he keeps mentioning the baby.

A few days ago, my husband and I found the gender of the baby. The minute we told Will, he started calling the baby a random name he picked and was going to give to his baby if he wasn’t infertile. He then started begging us to use this name and my husband said it was a “done deal”.

I refused but my husband called me heartless and asked me to do this one small, nice gesture for his struggling friend to give him closure and honor him after all the things he has done for us. I flipped and said it’s my baby not his.

Will heard this and left immediately. My husband yelled at me saying it’s his baby too and my behavior towards Will was abhorrent. He left after him and didn’t come back til the morning. He kept saying the same thing and pressuring me to agree on the name but I refused. Am I Wrong for choosing this hill to die on?
