This Redditor turned to the Reddit community after her husband ignored her when she was taken to the hospital with a medical emergency. She responded with a bit of cold shoulder treatment, ignoring him back. She wanted to know if she was is the wrong for ignoring him.
The woman, a 24-year-old pregnant woman, was visiting her family in Pennsylvania while her husband, also 24, was visiting his family in Florida.
A Trip to the Emergency Room
She had been experiencing cramping, which she initially thought was Braxton Hicks or round ligament pain.
However, when the pain worsened and she noticed blood in her urine, she decided to go to the emergency room.
Calling Her Husband
The hospital diagnosed her with a severe UTI that was on the verge of becoming a kidney infection, causing contractions and a fever.
While at the hospital, she tried contacting her husband multiple times but he did not respond.
After being discharged, she called her husband and found him to be heavily intoxicated.
She expressed her anger towards him and said she did not want to speak to him that night.
However, he proceeded to message their family’s group chat and a Discord server where she talks to her online friends because she was not responding to his texts.
She has copies of a few of his messages.
Dripping With Sarcasm
One message, in particular, had a sarcastic tone to it, stating that she doesn’t allow her husband to drink.
He went on to continue to say he wanted to spend time with his family and have fun while having a few drinks and not worrying about it.
He went on to write that his wife was mad at him even though he was just trying to enjoy spending time with this family since his dad had passed away recently.
His Father Passed Away
Her husband lost his father seven months ago.
She states that she was never prohibiting him from drinking, she even encouraged her husband to go out with his family during his visit to them.
A Confrontation With His Sister
Upon returning home, she went to call her husband to mediate the situation and prevent further embarrassment.
Instead, his sister answered the phone and criticized her for not trusting her husband and being overly sensitive and dramatic due to her pregnancy.
After this, her husband ignored her for the rest of the night.
The woman wonders if she is the one in the wrong in this situation.
Here’s What People Said
Reddit users were quick to comment on the thread, most of whom are siding with the woman and her reason for being upset.
One commented that her husband attempted to make her look bad in front of their friends because she set a boundary for communication. The user continued to write that although alcohol can impair judgment, it’s concerning that their immediate reaction was not to give her the space she requested.
The Reddit user stated that the messages sent were also manipulative, avoiding the actual reason for her anger and instead framing her as controlling and unreasonable. This behavior is particularly concerning given that the individual is about to become a father.
Some commenters thought that the woman should consider reevaluating her relationship and whether she can rely on her partner when needed, especially now that they are about to have a child together.
What do you think? Is she justified in being upset with her husband? What would you have done in this situation? Leave a comment!
