A married WOMEN who asks her to be a stay-at-home mom so he can take his dream job is questioning whether she should agree.
The mother, now a surgeon, took to the I’m an asshole on Reddit to get some outside perspective on the situation.
“My husband sat me down and told me about the job offer he got,” she began.
“That will be full-time and will earn 50-75% more than I currently have, great benefits, etc.”
However, while she is “ecstatic” because her husband has been offered a “dream job”, the job of taking care of the children leaves her scratching her head.
She wrote: “For context, my husband quit his job when we had just had a baby.
“He didn’t like his job but decided to take some time off to stay at home with his mother when the children were young.
“Incidentally when we were discussing this, he said, ‘and now you can quit your job and take care of the baby because you don’t need to work anymore’.
Confused by his comment, she added that she thought it was a joke and took it as such – meaning things immediately got “quite hot” between the pair.
“It got pretty hot because I didn’t seem like ‘want to discuss this’ and ‘don’t have an open mind,'” she continued.
“I told him I wouldn’t quit under any circumstances and he told me he’d done the same to me and that he couldn’t think of any cons.
“He argued that I should support his cause that would support our family better than mine and that it would be better for our child if I did this because his work would give allowing us to see each other and have a work/life balance..”
After hours of arguing, the woman refused to quit her job and her husband turned down the job offer.
She also added in a response to another comment that their problem was not with the inability to care for their children, but rather her husband “prefers stay-at-home parents”.
“His argument was that I didn’t need to work anymore and it would be in our family’s interest if I didn’t,” she concluded.
In the comments section, many opinions shared, but the majority agreed that the husband was unreasonable with his request.
“Between your salary and his new job you can afford high quality flexible childcare,” someone wrote.
“If he’s not happy with that then he needs to be a stay-at-home parent.
“You’re a surgeon, it’s not a career where you can spend a few years and then go back to where you left off. Keep showing your kids all that women are all about. can do.”
Another accused the woman’s husband of being “manipulative”, writing: “The 1950s called and wanted your husband’s attitude back.”
