A stay-at-home mom shared the pain her husband caused when he made her feel like she was the odd one out. Was she acting like a “royal” and being “entitled?”
Trips With His Best Friend
OP (Original Poster) shared that she and her husband had not traveled outside the country for years. However, it was not the same for her husband and his best friend.
She shared that her husband goes on vacation every year with his best friend. OP said her husband reasoned that he and his best friend attended sports activities together.
A New Destination
OP’s husband and his best friend were visiting a new place this year. So, her husband said she could go with him.
Her husband offered to finance her trip because she was a stay-at-home mom with no income. She said her husband paid for her tickets and everything else.
Their kids were then left in the care of OP’s mom.
His Unfair Decision
Then, OP found out that her husband had booked tickets for first class for him and his friend. On the flip side, he only booked economy for her.
She was so mad that she couldn’t hold her tongue and confronted her husband about it.
Initially, her husband didn’t want to discuss it with her. However, soon, it turned into a heated argument.
OP’s husband yelled, “I paid for your ticket, for f**k’s sake; isn’t that enough?!”
Acting Like “Royalty”
OP’s husband didn’t stop and said that OP should stop acting like “royalty.”
She shared that her husband told her that if she thought about it, economy would be fine for her because she “technically” doesn’t work anyway.
Refusing to Go
OP was so hurt that she decided to forego the vacation altogether. He changed his tone when she told her husband she wouldn’t be going anymore.
She shared, “He changed his tone and started begging me to just go with what he planned, but I declined.”
OP left to pick up the kids from her mom’s house and went home. Then, her husband came home three hours later, “huffing and buffing about what happened.”
After that, OP received a text from her husband’s best friend calling her “entitled.” He even said that this was precisely why he didn’t want OP’s husband to take her with them, and she proved his point.
Blocking Him Out
At this point, OP’s had enough. She blocked her husband’s best friend and said, “I did not respond, but I blocked him since he’s gotten increasingly rude over the past few months.”
Was I Wrong?
OP said her husband exclaimed that she “kept crying about being excluded,” but when he finally offered to take her with him, “This is what happens.”
She shared that her husband is “perfectly capable” of financing the trip. However, she still asked if she was wrong for acting the way she did.
What Redditors Have to Say
The community couldn’t believe how disrespectful OP’s husband was to her.
A top commenter wrote, “If you’re a stay-at-home mom, then all the money he earns is shared funds. There is no ‘him’ paying; in fact, you paid for his first-class ticket as much as he paid for your economy ticket. The level of disrespect is astounding. Divorce him and get half plus alimony.”
Aside from the top commenter, many Redditors were advising OP to start thinking about her marriage as a whole.
“I hate to jump on the Redditor divorce wagon, but in this case, it’s so obvious how much he doesn’t care or even respect OP. Not the a**hole,” wrote one user. Another said, “I’m not sure why he even married OP. It seems like he’s already in a long-term relationship with his friend.”
You Are Strong Enough to Leave Him!
People also told OP that she could stand on her own two feet and didn’t need to let herself be stuck in this situation.
One said, “OP, I was once a stay-at-home mom in a financially and emotionally abusive marriage. Leave him. File immediately. File for support immediately, and there are a lot of remote jobs now. There are more and more companies that are valuing single moms. You were strong enough to leave the airport; you’re strong enough to leave this jerk.”
You’re Not Wrong!
Some Redditors also shed light on how OP and her husband’s agreement should have worked. People say that if they agreed that OP stayed home to care for the kids and the house, then her husband’s income is also 100% hers.
Someone shared, “If the family agreement is that your job is to stay home and care for the kids, then his money is 100% your money, too. You are not entitled for expecting to be treated as an equal in the relationship. This is 100% about being treated as an equal, and instead, your husband treats you like you don’t deserve nice things because you are not a wage earner.”
