I M32 am the sole breadwinner in our household and my wife is a housewife (she had a job but could no longer keep it due to health issues). We also have a one year old daughter at home.

Since I started working from home, my wife started treating me like I was available to do whatever she needed, like fixing that fix, doing laundry, etc. But I work long hours from home and I need to be committed and professional or I risk losing my job.

She has already interrupted my work several times. I had a conversation with her about it and I asked her to stop asking me to do things until I was done working and she said okay but that happened. reproduced a few days ago when she burst into my office with our daughter all of a sudden telling me to keep an eye on her while she goes to the clinic.

I interrupted my work session because I was caught off guard, she didn’t tell me anything in advance. She said she suddenly started feeling pain in her stomach and needed to see the doctor as soon as possible. I explained that I had an important job and couldn’t stay with our daughter or keep her in the office while she was working. She said she would be soon but I urged her to call her sister and let her come and stay with our daughter. In my opinion, it seemed like the only reasonable solution for both of us, but she lambasted me saying no because it was an emergency when my work could wait. She said she didn’t have time to wait for her sister to come, but I said I would call her myself and tell her to come. I even suggested paying here and all my wife had to do was wait a few minutes until her sister arrived.

She stormed out of the office with our daughter after calling me a selfish jerk with no empathy to make her wait longer before visiting the doctor. My sister-in-law arrived about 20 minutes later and my wife then left. I tried to call her to check on her but she purposely hung up on me several times and when she got home she was still pretty mad at me which I don’t understand because I think I I provided a solution that allowed him to go to his doctor’s appointment and allowed me to resume my work session but no.

She kept talking about what an awful partner and father I was for refusing to provide help when she needed it and refused to sympathize with her predicament and keep her waiting for her sister when she had need to see the doctor ASAP. She now completely refuses to talk to me. I think my compromise was reasonable, I don’t really understand why she got so upset.

Here’s what netizens think:

  • If her stomach pain was so bad, how did F have the energy to argue with you. It looks more like she’s making a scene and being dramatic.
  • The problem is that the woman is crying wolf. The end result is that when she might really need him, he thought it was more or less the same.
  • I agree, provided it is really an emergency. If that were the case, he would have to intervene even if he was not to work at home.
  • Good luck with the rest of your marriage, you have a drama queen as your wife.
