🤔 Did He Abandon His Pregnant Wife?

Our protagonist, a soon-to-be dad, left his pregnant wife in her last trimester for a work meeting that could help him get a promotion. His wife, who is dealing with a high-risk pregnancy, asked him not to go, but he decided to attend the meeting anyway, leaving her with his mom. Upon his return, his wife is furious and accuses him of abandoning her and not caring about her well-being. He defends himself, saying he wouldn't have left if it was just the two of them, and his mom was there to help. The wife is now giving him the cold shoulder, and he's left wondering if he's in the wrong. 😕 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
