About

Internet Husband, also known as "Redditor's Wife" or "Anon Wife", is an image macro series featuring a photo of a woman standing in a doorway in pajamas, appearing rather distraught, while her husband is looking at a computer screen. The overlaid text typically describes the woman's disappointment with her addicted Redditor husband, and references Internet culture in-jokes. Some of the derivatives reference other websites like 4chan.

Origin

The original image comes from a stock photo titled "Man working at computer with sad woman in background" (shown below, left) that can be found on Gettyimages[1] and Fotosearch.[2] The earliest posting of the meme on Reddit was on May 18th, 2011, in a thread titled "The door swings both ways" (shown below, right).[3] The post was made as a response to another Reddit thread titled "I must admit I've thought of this myself" featuring the following image of a man lying awake in bed (shown below).[4] It was not referred to as "Redditor's Wife" until May 20th 2011 in an image posted to the /r/AdviceAnimals subreddit.[5]
