Man concerned about wife's 'uncommon' egg habit – dividing opinions

A bemused husband has taken to Reddit to express his concern over his wife’s peculiar dietary habit of consuming “six boiled eggs a day”.

The man, puzzled by her love for the protein-packed snack, sought advice online. The internet community is split on the matter, with some recalling acquaintances who also indulged in daily eggs.

In his Reddit post, the husband shared: “My Irish wife boils about six eggs a day, and eats them throughout the day as snacks. Is this an Irish thing? She claims it is pretty common and almost cultural phenomenon.”

He further clarified his own background: “Worth noting I am an Irish citizen too, but born and lived in Spain for the first 20 years of my life. Surely eating six boiled eggs a day isn’t normal haha. [sic]”.

Even the most avid egg lovers had their doubts about such a high daily intake. One commenter remarked: “I like eggs but I don’t think I would like them if I ate 6 every day.” Another wrote: “Your wife is cracked.”

Some users discussed potential health implications of her egg-eating habit. A comment read: “I grew up being told that you absolutely cannot eat more than two eggs per day, I think it was something about cholesterol. Luckily the egg advisory council debunked that.”

One added: “6 hard boiled eggs a day? Jesus man, do sleep in a separate bedroom or something? You must be able to taste her farts.”

Another expressed: “6 is very much uncommon. I’d eat about 2-4 a week max.” Other participants recommended keeping chickens to cut back on the expense of buying eggs. One individual mused: “Probably worth investing in a few chickens if she plans on keeping that up.”
