A man and his wife are expecting their first child, and the man's parents suggest they visit after the baby is born. The man agrees, thinking it would be a good idea since they haven't seen each other in months. However, when he tells his wife, she becomes upset and accuses him of invading her space during an essential time for bonding. The man argues that his family are decent people and can be helpful, but his wife demands he cancels their visit. He's now stuck between a rock and a hard place. Is he the a**hole for agreeing to have his family visit?

Man invites family over for baby's birth without consulting wife 🤰
A man invited his family to meet his newborn baby for a week, without consulting his wife. The wife, due this month, was not pleased with the idea, as she thought it would be a lot of work to take care of the baby and her husband's family. The man argued that his family could help and that it would be good to have them around, but his wife insisted that the first few days of the baby's life were an essential time for bonding and being intimate.
The argument escalated, and the wife demanded that the man cancel the plans, but he refused, as he did not want to ruin his relationship with his family. The man is now feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place. What do you think? Was he wrong for inviting his family without consulting his wife? Share your thoughts and reactions below.
