Meet James, a 27-year-old nurse who has a 1-year-old son with his fiancée, Sarah. Sarah decided to leave her previous job and stay at home to take care of their son while James worked. Although they shared their son’s care, James made it clear that when it was time for work, Sarah should be taking responsibility.

She Complained

Recently, Sarah has been complaining about James’s shift hours changing, which is something he can’t control because the unit lacks nurses, and it’s impossible for him to do day-to-day planning. Sometimes he works 12 hours, and sometimes he works 15, so it’s quite unpredictable. However, he does his best to spend time at home and give Sarah time for herself.

She Was Mad

2 days ago, Sarah’s cousin’s wedding was taking place, and that morning she wanted James to skip work and stay home with their son so she could go to the salon with her sisters. James told her he couldn’t skip work and that she could either call his mom or just wait for him to come home. Sarah threw a fit and said her cousin’s wedding was important, and James was being unsupportive.

James left home after that and started his shift at the hospital. At around 1pm, when he was in the middle of work, he got a few missed calls from Sarah. Then she sent a text telling him she was at the hospital’s parking lot with their son.

He Lost It

James went to meet her there, and she wanted him to take their son and watch him until she got back from the salon at 4pm. James lost it and told her he couldn’t watch their son when he was in the middle of his shift. She kept saying he should just let him stay with him and that it was okay.

They Argued

James absolutely lashed out at her, called her unreasonable and selfish, and said she could’ve let someone else watch him, but she said her family was busy. They got into an argument, and she left their son with him. James had to drive to his mom’s house and let her have him until he finished his shift.

He Was Accused

When James got home, he was extremely angry. Sarah and her mom said he overreacted and that he was supposed to help since he’s his son too. Sarah’s mother said he was in the wrong for caring more about work than his own son, but James had already told Sarah he was busy. She wanted him to apologize for yelling and causing a scene, but James refused.

He Made Plans

He explained that he had already made arrangements for their son, and he couldn’t just leave work in the middle of his shift. He also mentioned that Sarah was normally fine with his work schedule until recently, and whenever there was an event, they would both make arrangements, and he would stay with their son while she was gone.

He Was Busy

This time, James told her he was busy and that he wouldn’t be allowing her to distract him from work, but she was being stubborn, thinking he was prioritizing work and being unsupportive. James realized that this “misunderstanding,” as Sarah called it, could’ve ended with a discussion, but her mother was determined to paint him as the bad parent who wasn’t “pulling weight” and taking part and responsibility in caring for their son.

He Was Tired

James was tired of Sarah’s mother and how she kept judging him while ignoring her daughter’s behavior. He knew that he needed to talk to Sarah and try to work things out. He also realized that they needed to have a serious discussion about their roles and responsibilities as parents and partners.

Straight to the Internet

James was in such torment given the situation he had been faced with, he saw no other option than to head on the internet and seek advice from a popular forum site.

The Internet Responds

One person writes, “He’s the breadwinner and her job is to take care of the home and the baby, if this is the agreement they have she can’t just dump the baby on him when he’s the one at work and his job pays for everything. Why didn’t she just call his mom like he told her to? Obviously his mom could do it. Do you have a problem calling her mother-in-law? Seems very unreasonable to demand that he be the one to watch the baby when she could’ve found someone else.”

A Further Comment

Another person comments, “You’re fiancée doesn’t care about your job, doesn’t care about your kid’s safety, and even puts her cousin before you. Revaluate the relationship and whether or not you really want to be financially supporting a person who so willingly puts your entire career at risk.”
