When you first read the title of this story, you’ll laugh but in theory, it’s pretty sad that a wife’s nagging ways led her husband to literally leave her and choose a life of solitude over her. Malcolm Applegate is living the life.
Many of you might be saying, “Well, that’s it-I’m not getting married.” While that sentiment is understandable, if you choose to get married, please don’t become a nagger. If you do, just be very aware that your significant other might choose the woods over you. Malcolm Applegate’s story is one for the ages.
Malcolm Applegate claims he could no longer get on with her after she became unhappy that his hours at work had increased.
For starters, he’s bringing home the money but alright, carry on. The 62 year old wanted change.
Malcolm said: “The more work I took on, the angrier my wife got. She didn’t like me being out of the house for long periods of time. I was married for three years, but unfortunately it got too much.
“I decided to leave for good. Without a word to anyone, not even family, I left.”
He added: “My day-to-day involves working in the shop or driving the vans, I’m not fussy what jobs are given to me as long as I’m working.
“I have a lovely room, I am able to work and I can still lead an active social life – I love it here – my life is officially back on track.”
He did not want to share her name so she would not be found. His happiness is priority and maybe we can all learn something from him because he has a point. But the fact that he chose this life versus his wife speaks volumes.
Nagging gets you no where, folks.
