A man has said he is filing for divorce from his wife after she started an OnlyFans account – and it’s really dividing opinion.
The husband explained that his wife has always been very active on social media and gained thousands on followers on Instagram through her posts.
When one of his wife’s friends told her how much money she makes through sharing adult content on the paid-for subscription platform OnlyFans, and how “freeing” it was, she informed her husband she was going to sign up.
He said she had always been “a free spirit” and revealed her plan to quit her job once she got built up a profitable fan base.
But he says the decision has not only angered him, but upset their 11-year-old daughter whose friends teased her about it when her mum put a poll on Instagram asking if her followers would like to see her join OnlyFans.
He wrote on Reddit: “Now I’m strictly against this for two reasons: for my own personal reasons and because we have kids. I told her that I’m uncomfortable dating a sex worker and that our eldest has social media and so do her friends, this would ruin her.”
After his wife posted the poll on social media, he continued: “Our daughter screamed at her mother and nasty words were exchanged. They are not talking and this was two weeks ago,” Yahoo reports.
“My wife went ahead and made the account and already posted some pictures.
“Yesterday I told her I’m filing for divorce and I’d ask for full custody. I can’t stand the shame and our daughter is heartbroken and being bullied at school.
“I’m beyond p***ed, I never thought my life would lead here.”
After asking for opinions on whether he had overreacted, one person replied to slam him, writing: “What kind of outdated 18th century mindset do you have, thinking an OnlyFans account ‘brings shame upon your family and children’?!?!
“Your daughter getting teased because her mom has an OF account is BS. Someone needs to teach her how to stand up for herself and her mom’s bodily autonomy, and that sex work is real work.”
A second said: “You have a family. You don’t just run the second there’s conflict. Go see a couples therapist, work on your issues. Tearing your family apart over this is weak.”
But others defended him stating they would consider the decision to be a “form of cheating”, arguing: “She violated your boundaries for the relationship and continued to do what she wanted without sparing a thought to you or her daughter.”
And another said: “Your children are negatively affected and such a major lifestyle change requires mutual agreement in a partnership.”
