A grieving woman who lost her mother to cancer was left furious because of her husband’s lack of compassion.
She took to Reddit and explained: “I took part of her care and my husband helped a lot in the past few months. He loved mom, or so I thought.
“He help me take care of her at home, he’d visit daily when I stayed with her and he cleaned her yard, walked her dogs, handled her financial issues, brought her stuff she needed before she went to the hospital.”
But one evening, the woman found out that her mother had died. She said that her husband had returned home 30 minutes later.
“He was resting on the couch in the living room when I came downstairs and my face was very telling but he didn’t notice somehow,” the wife continued.
“He casually talked about how long and hard his day was and didn’t notice that I didn’t say a word.”
She explained that her mother had passed away an hour ago but his reaction just left her fuming.
After staring at his wife for a ‘good minute or so,’ he asked: “So, what’s for dinner?”
She said that her husband insisted that they had to eat first before going to the hospital.
“I blew up at him and called him unbelievable for his response to the news of my mom’s death,” she said. “He argued back talking about how he was working nonstop all day without having time to eat anything.
“Then basically talked about all the things he’s done for mum and how he owes nobody nothing.”
She added: “I stayed with my sister after the funeral. He came to try to talk to me but I felt I wasn’t ready.
“My sister was confused saying no matter what his response was to the news, my husband doesn’t deserve this treatment from me after he helped out and I should just try to work it out with him but I told her to stay out of it.”
Redditors were quick to share their opinions, with one person writing: “Honest to god dude, this is not acceptable. The days after I lost my mom are a total blur but I know my husband kept me fed and watered and resting – not complaining about a long day or whatever. And my husband is not exactly Mr Emotional Intelligence.”
Another said: “The first thing he said wasn’t even ‘I’m sorry’ or ‘are you alright’. It was to ask you what you were going to make him for dinner…an hour after you learned your mother died.
“He didn’t even acknowledge her passing at all before he asked you for food.”
