It's a tough road ahead, but she's ready to take action. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💔👶🎮

"NTA. Leaving you alone with the kid like that when you're sick is abhorrent, and the comparison to being a single parent seems fitting to me. But... you're contributing to your own misery here, and you need to stop it. For some reason, you have accepted this setup of him working and being an occasional babysitter instead of a father, and it's burning you out. But he seems to think that's what he's supposed to do, so he gets defensive when you start to demand 'more' of him. If you want that relationship to last, you'll need to communicate your frustrations to him. Sit him down and talk to him about your typical day, how much work a baby creates, and where you need him to step up more and take over his share. Otherwise, you will carry on as he currently is, and you will be quietly and silently heading for divorce."
