Is it ever okay to neglect a pregnant wife? 🤔

When a couple is expecting their first child, it's typically a time of joy and excitement. Unfortunately for one Reddit user's sister-in-law, her husband has been neglecting her and their unborn child. The user, who is excited to become an uncle, is growing increasingly concerned about his brother's behavior.

Despite initially being supportive, the brother has been choosing work and friends over his wife and upcoming responsibilities. When the sister-in-law was rushed to the hospital due to excessive bleeding, the husband was nowhere to be found. The user confronted his brother, which led to an argument and false accusations.

As if things couldn't get any worse, the user later updated the post to reveal that the husband was cheating on his wife. With the due date only three weeks away, the family is rallying around the sister-in-law to offer support during this difficult time. But the question remains: is it ever okay to neglect a pregnant wife?

Let's take a closer look at the comments and reactions to find out more about the story.
