A pregnant woman has shared how she and her husband got into a heated argument after he decided to go on a holiday with his mother instead of being present during the birth of their first baby.
Posting on Reddit, the mom-to-be explained that her in-laws don’t consider her completely part of their family.
She also shared how her husband’s family always spend time together at their holiday home in Florida during the festive season.
“He agreed not to go this year because of the baby, but his family is insisting that he go and come back on the 28th which is ample time before the baby is due (on the 30th),” she wrote.
The pregnant woman said that her husband bought a ticket for December 15th to 28th because his parents wanted him and his siblings there.
“Pregnancies are unpredictable, especially in the last trimester and if anything happens leading up to the due date, I need him there. My parents are away until December 26th and my friends have their families, so I will be completely alone,” she added.
The woman also explained that she and her husband got into an argument because of his decision but she was left wondering if she was the one being unreasonable.
Reddit users were quick to share their thoughts on the situation, with one person saying: “This man is not ready to raise a child because he’s still acting like one with how dependent he is on mommy and daddy. He’s not husband material either.”
Another wrote: “He is willing to risk missing the birth of his child, willing to leave you utterly unsupported at one of the most vulnerable times of your life for a holiday. I’m so sorry but this is a glimpse into your future.”
