Her Husband Kept Dodging His Parental Responsibilities by Running Into the Bathroom Whenever Their Baby Twins Needed Changing, so She Turned Off the Wifi, and Now He’s Furious

A woman was frustrated when her husband kept running off into the bathroom every time her newborn twins needed something. But when she switched the WIFI off, he said she was in the wrong.

The woman said, ‘My husband and I are the parents of twins who are less than a year old.’

He Always Ran Away

The couple were both on maternity/ paternity leave, but raising twins was a constant struggle. What made it worse was her husband’s absence whenever the kids needed something. If they needed changing, soothing, or feeding, he ran off into the bathroom.

It Wasn’t His Fault

When she confronted her husband about it, he said it wasn’t his fault. He was on medication that caused him to use the toilet more often than usual. The medicine meant he would have to spend an hour in the bathroom after every meal, but the woman knew something was up.

She Told Him to See a Doctor

She told her husband that it was weird that he still used the bathroom so much when he was off the medication. He would take breaks from it for weeks, yet his habits were still the same. The husband defended himself and said it was just typical after-effects, but when the woman suggested seeing a doctor, he refused.

The woman was suspicious of her husband and felt he was just trying to get out of helping her with the twins. She asked the doctor if it was possible for her husband to need the toilet so much when he wasn’t on his medication, and he said it was highly unlikely. The woman thought that her husband was using his toilet time as an opportunity to watch YouTube for at least 25 minutes a session.

It Was Really Difficult

When the kids needed something, she’d prefer he use the restroom first rather than stop whatever task he was performing midway through. But, over the course of a couple of months, he was spending more and more time in the bathroom with his phone. It was tough as her twins couldn’t be fed at the same time, as one of them needed to be positioned a certain way due to health issues. And she would have to endure the other’s screaming while they waited for their turn.

Somehow, her husband would just ignore their screaming children, and the woman was left to deal with it. She didn’t think this was very fair. He could at least cuddle one while she fed one of the twins? It wasn’t that difficult, after all. That’s when she decided to start counting.

The woman said, ‘Since I started truly keeping track, he, only twice in ten days, did not ditch me to go camp out in the bathroom and let me finish 80% of the childcare.’

He Was Annoyed with Her

After discovering this, she decided that if her partner was in the bathroom for more than ten minutes, she would turn off the WiFi. Afterward, he never spent more than fifteen minutes in the toilet. He was miraculously cured… and VERY annoyed with his wife.

Was She in the Wrong?

The woman was glad to have found a way to stop her husband from using the bathroom for such a long time, but he was outraged. He said she was being unreasonable. She wondered if she was in the wrong, so she asked the internet for advice.

And the Internet Provided

One person said, ‘We get it, caring for two children is hard, that’s why it’s not fair for him to be bailing on you.’

A reader was especially angry with the husband, ‘You’ve literally gone through the hardship and pain of being pregnant with twins and GIVING BIRTH to TWO babies! If I had a baby I would be making my husband do most of the work for at least 9 months after they are born…’

Others Chimed in

Another commented, ‘You shouldn’t have to mother your husband as well as your children.’
