An anonymous man took to Reddit to ask users whether he was being unreasonable for asking his wife to take on a small portion of the chores after he told her he feels “burnt out”
Pregnancy can be both mentally and physically tiring, so having a partner there to help out can make things a little easier.But sometimes it can be taken too far, as one husband found out.
The anonymous man said that his wife is 24 weeks pregnant, and so far “it has been a fairly easy pregnancy”.He explained: “I have done my best to be a good husband. I work full-time, started doing all the chores (cooking/cleaning/pet care), and of course, try my best to accommodate her cravings.
“She has been taking it easy and spends most of her day relaxing. She says she’s ‘never felt better’.”But tackling so much has left him feeling “burnt out”.On two occasions he asked her whether she’d be able to take on just a small portion of the chores, but she refused both times.
