Pregnant Woman Seeking Advice Turns Into A Wave Of Hair-Raising Relationship Experiences Of Women On Reddit
In the midst of joyous news, a cloud of uncertainty and tension has descended upon the lives of OP (26F) and her husband (28M). Their journey toward parenthood began with excitement, but a recent disagreement has left them at odds. It's a story that resonates with many, and the lessons learned here may prove invaluable to others facing similar challenges.
The couple has been together for five years and married for three, but they recently started trying for a baby, and three weeks ago, OP got a positive test result, which excited both families. However, a disagreement occurred two nights ago. When OP asked her husband to turn off the lights, he responded negatively, saying it's what he expects every night. This led to a long, unprovoked rant from the husband. He told OP that her pregnancy wouldn't change anything, and he still expected her to do all the chores daily. When OP asked for his help, he responded by saying he works hard to provide for them, dismissing her physical and mental well-being. OP got upset and expressed regret about getting pregnant. The husband then left for the night without returning.

The story in detail:
OP and husband Jake have been together five years, married three. They started trying for a baby, and three weeks ago, OP got a positive pregnancy test.
Then, out of the blue, OP's husband decided to act this way after she asked him to complete a simple task.
OP felt hurt, but she completed the task. Following that, the husband launched into an extensive and unwarranted rant.
OP was surprised. She asked her husband for help, only to receive the reply that, since he works hard at his job to provide for her and their future children, she will have to do everything else by herself.
The husband ran away from the problem after OP responded to what he had said.
Now, OP turns to Reddit and asks:
As expected, his post went viral faster than a sneeze in a crowded room, and boy, did it catch everyone's attention! Here are some of the responses it received:
Coparenting with someone this toxic sounds terrible.

This info is just straight up terrifying.
OP's husband is a WALKING red-flag, and it shows.
To which this user agrees.
The majority of users agree that OP's husband is abusive, and the longer OP stays with him, the more danger she is in.
Abortion may sound hard, but OP should consider it in order to free herself from this abusive and terrible partner.
Run, OP, run!
The husband's mask just fell off, and OP needs to act quickly.
