A Dramatic Turn of Events

After seeking advice from the internet, our protagonist confronts her husband and uncovers the real issue – family pressure and insecurity. It turns out, his brother and coworkers have been mocking him for making less money and having a lower job title than his wife. This led to him lashing out and insisting she should be the one to stay home with the baby. 🕵️‍♀️💔 With the truth out in the open, the couple agrees to seek counseling and explore nanny services, while the husband admits he's open to staying home for a few unpaid months. But can they overcome the judgment from others? Let's see what the internet has to say about this emotional rollercoaster... 🎢

"A GOOD mother would sacrifice the stability of the household so I can feel like a bigger man than I am" is some crazy logic. Unfortunately, abusers often wait until you're 'stuck' with them because of a baby to pull the trigger on their bullshit. They get comfortable and figure you're tied to them forever now. If you didn't hear any of this from him before right now, then it's going to get worse. 💔
