Having kids is never easy for any woman and it does come with plenty of compromises.
But a beautiful marriage means saying hello to compromise and respecting each partner’s wishes, be it personal or career. However, this next story about a woman who opted to be a stay-at-home mom and was punished for doing so by her husband is leaving netizens divided.
As days go by, the financial situation only seems to worsen. And that means the cost of living continues to rise as we speak. Therefore, couples are really struggling to make ends meet and when one of them finds it so much easier to stay home, the response they get is disapproval.
The new mom says she was beyond shocked after her husband gave her a divorce for opting to become a housewife who would stay home and look after the kids.
She said that her decision was taken to prevent spending huge sums of money on things like nurseries and babysitting. But for her man to punish her for not working after marriage with a divorce left her speechless and literally blew her mind.
The setup clearly may work for some people while for others, it cannot and that could lead to a breakup as in this case.
The husband got plenty of backlash from his friends and family for the irrational decision because to throw five years of marriage down the drain is just a lot. Let’s not forget how the duo were dating since high school so there were a lot of feelings involved.
But the man explained how the reason he loved his wife so much was because of how smart, driven, and ambitious she was. They used to bond on things like academics and clearly were super nerdy. And that’s when netizens did try to see where he was coming from and applauded him for getting out of the marriage.
Meanwhile, others feel he ruined his wife and child’s life because now they both have to suffer. What do you think?
