Pregnant woman Accused of Being Lazy And Not Performing Her “Wife Duties” Even Though She Has a 12-Hour Job
Speaking about the weight of the world resting on your shoulders. That’s exactly how this pregnant mom feels after working 12 hours each day and taking care of her lazy husband.
The husband had the audacity to complain that she is not performing her “wife duties” because she doesn’t spend enough time home.
“My husband complained to my mom today that I’m too lazy. That I haven’t cooked a proper meal in a week and I only cook easy quick meals. I’m working a 12 hour job while pregnant and he’s working from home.
My job is also a 2 hour drive from the house. I’m away 14 hours a day overworking myself while he does nothing to help around the house and the few times he does help he rubs it on my face while calling me lazy and complaining to my mom and his mom.”
To make things worse even the rest of the family also accused her of being in the wrong, including a close friend. It blows my mind that someone can blame a pregnant mom that works 12 hours per day for not cooking for her husband daily or cleaning after another adult that’s perfectly capable of taking care of himself.
To make things worse even her mother and mother-in-law want her to be a ”better wife” to her husband. The only support she has is from her sister that unfortunately lives far away.
Read her story below:
AITA for telling my MIL and mother I’m not here to babysit my husband? 1 (30f) have been married to my husband for a year.
We are expecting our first child and it’s a really tricky pregnancy for me. My husband grew up as a mommas boy but throughout our relationship that dynamic changed and he became more independent.
His mother always cooked for him, cleaned for him even when he was an adult because he was never required or taught how to do house chores. He learnt all that through me.
I’m working a really hard job since I was 25. I work at a warehouse and I always work overtime because my boss is horrible but that’s another story. My husband is working from home even before the pandemic.
Now, my MIL and my mom call me a bad wife for not caring for my husband properly. They claim its my job to do the cooking and cleaning. My mom justifies my MIL intervening in our household matters. She says I’m not a proper housewife.
My husband complained to my mom today that I’m too lazy. That I haven’t cooked a proper meal in a week and I only cook easy quick meals. I’m working a 12 hour job while pregnant and he’s working from home. My job is also a 2 hour drive from the house.
I’m away 14 hours a day overworking myself while he does nothing to help around the house and the few times he does help he rubs it on my face while calling me lazy and complaining to my mom and his mom.
While I was at work today, my MIL called me and complained about how her son has lost weight since he married me and how I’m not feeding him and she’d never let him marry me if she knew how shitty I am as a wife. I told her her son is a grown man who’s fully capable of taking care of himself, also told her to never bother me again while I’m at work and hang up.
My mom called me few minutes later to also complain and I told her I’m not my husband’s babysitter I’m his wife and if she and MIL want to act like babysitters to him then, they should be my guest.
