Husband Tells Pregnant Wife ‘You Know My Mom Comes before You’ & Goes to His Mother Instead of Helping Her
A six-months-pregnant woman asked her husband if he could be more present and help her prepare for their baby’s survival. What her husband told her next shocked her.
A Reddit user asked others on the platform if she was being unreasonable in issuing an ultimatum to her husband, who had been largely absent for much of her pregnancy. She soon learned how dire her situation was.
The woman explained that she and her husband had been together for five years and married for six months. She was also six months pregnant when she turned to fellow Reddit users for advice.
The woman shared that her husband and his mother had an unusually close relationship, saying: “My husband is a complete mommas boy. He’ll call his mother for hours and talk to her and spend time with her more than he does with me.” However, her final straw was the event that led to her posting on Reddit.
WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THE WOMAN AND HER HUSBAND?
When the woman reached the sixth month of her pregnancy, she asked her husband if he could be around more and help her prepare for the child they expected to welcome.
Her husband told her that being around more for her would eat into the time he had to spend with his mother. While the woman understood that concept, she explained that she needed him more than his mother did at that point, to which the husband replied:
“You know my mom comes before you.”
The woman was shocked by what her husband said but took it in stride when he left to go to his mother’s house. She then did everything she needed to do by herself.
While she prepared for her child alone, her mother-in-law phoned her and told her she had won. To make matters worse, as the mother-in-law bragged about her win, the wife could hear her husband laughing in the background. Although angry, she continued to go about her life as usual.
