A woman refuses to cook for her husband after working all day. Was she wrong?
Emily Cleans The Home For 4 Days
A woman who we’ll call ‘Emily’ recently shared a story about an argument with her husband over leftovers. Emily, who had been off work for four days, spent her time deep cleaning their home. “I have been off the last 4 days. So I finally had a chance to do some spring cleaning. I deep cleaned the whole house. Yes this did take all 4 days. I did bathrooms, fans, oiled wood tables, opened and cleaned windows everything.”
Her Husband Expects A Cooked Meal
Emily’s husband expected her to cook every meal since she was home. “My husband sees that I am off and I have had to serve him every meal since I am home.”
He Expects Her To Cook Dinner Happily
Usually, Emily doesn’t mind cooking, but she was tired after deep cleaning the house. “90 percent of the time I don’t mind. Yesterday I was tired and was making steaks for dinner so I didn’t feel like making a breakfast omlette too. He got upset and I ended up making both breakfast and dinner since I didn’t want to fight, but he says I made a face.”
She Said She Would Not Cook The Next Day
“After dinner last night I packed up left overs and made it clear that I would not be making ANYTHING the next day. Everyone agreed since I work today. When he got off work this morning I served him something quick to eat.”
He Claims She Is Ruining His Birthday Month
Since it was her husband’s birthday soon, she booked a hotel for them to get away. “I have a hotel booked for this weekend for us. I was trying on clothing and packing up when ne asked to heat up his left overs. I said “I told you yesterday I wasn’t making anything today.” He responded with “your going to make a problem over heating something up on my birthday month”
Emily responded with “I am tired and explained yesterday that you keep making problems with me over food.” Her husband responded with “no, you’re making problems over food. You just don’t want to serve me anything any more. Cancel the reservation I’m not going anywhere. Thanks for ruining my birthday month!” Emily noted that she did heat up the left overs which of course her husband refused to eat. She also said, “And the reservation is too late to cancel so now I’m out money too.”
The Husband’s Behavior is Abusive
Many pointed out the abusive behavior of Emily’s husband. As one person stated, “It sounds like you have a job, and yet you are also in charge of all household chores AND all food preparation? And your husband can’t heat up his own leftovers? Are his arms broken? And then refusing to eat the food when you made it for him? He’s straight up abusive.”
The Husband is Controlling
Others pointed out the controlling behavior of her husband. As one person stated, “He wants you to cook, clean and organize everything and all he has to do is show up? He sounds very controlling.”
The Importance of Leaving Abusive Relationships
One person shared their own experience in an abusive relationship and urged Emily to leave. As they stated, “As a woman who spent a decade in an abusive relationship catering to a narcissist, get out now. I stayed. It was a mistake. A huge one.” They emphasized the importance of preserving one’s sanity, self-respect, and dignity.
Don’t Cancel the Reservation
Many urged Emily not to cancel the reservation and to take time for herself. As one person stated, “Don’t cancel the reservation! Go yourself and get some rest. Your husband is playing mind games with you.”
