Wife's only chance at job ruined by controlling husband 😡

In this story, a woman with physical disabilities lost her job in 2019 and agreed to let her husband become the breadwinner. However, he reneged on his promise to split the household chores and refused to help. When the wife found a potential work-from-home job and scheduled an interview, the husband secretly canceled it without her knowledge.

He claimed to be concerned about her well-being but the wife accused him of not wanting to share the household responsibilities. The husband has been cold-shouldering her since the argument and deleted her social media accounts. The wife questions whether she was wrong for yelling at him.
