Maybe he was right, maybe he wasn't. You decide.
Most of us are at our wits ends because it's hard being cooped up alone or with your partner or family for so long. Imagine being pregnant on top of that. As beautiful as pregnancy is, it's not easy, walking around with a huge belly, feeding two people. Agreed, pregnancy brings about some crazy cravings as well as some nasty mood swings, but how much is too much? Recently, a distraught husband took to Reddit to share an incident. He says that while he was warned by his friends about how intense pregnancy cravings can get, he's been doing everything he can to make sure his wife is happy.
He says he even drove for 40 minutes at 3 am to go to his in-laws' place as they had the particular food she was craving for and she just couldn't control it. After a few such incidents, he sat her down and had a calm conversation where he told her that while he's got it easy because he wasn't the one pregnant, but since she is, he just couldn't keep throwing everything down to be at her beck and call at all times. He then went on to add that he's the one who usually cooks at home and a while ago, he made a dish from their native, something quite similar to that of our Pizza, he adds.
He spent about an hour making the dish and cut it into pieces like you would a pizza, and then he made a salad to go with it as well. It was one of their favorite dishes so he was quite looking forward to the meal. So he got the "pizza" out, put it on the table and went back to get the salad, and came back, only to find that his wife had put the entire "pizza" onto her plate. Now I should say I have cooked this meal quite a few times and it had always been that we took half each, so I asked her hey how come you took it all, he questioned. That's when she replied that she was craving it because she was pregnant.
She then added that while she knew how much he liked it, she wanted him to adjust with just the salad for once. He then said that he's okay with her having the pie, but he asked for one piece out of the 10, but she refused to do even that, saying she wanted it all and asking why he couldn't make do with the salad. This started an argument and I just told her that I found it rude that she was trying to stop me from having 1 piece of my own food that I cooked. She still refused to give me a single piece and then said something that really hurt me. She commented on his weight and said, "honestly you should stick to salad in general anyway."
He adds that he's been unhappy with his weight but he's been working on it, and there have been results, but this comment from his wife, out of the blue, just hurt his feelings. I told her enough and took the plate. At this point I now have the remaining 'pizza' left and told her she can 'eat salad or come apologize' and took the food to eat on our alfresco. He went on to say that he knew he was being an asshole, but he did what he did since her comments hurt him that much. Honestly, I don't think this is the right way to treat your SO, despite the situation and people on Reddit thought the same.
