Let's be real: dads don't have much of a role in the birthing process beyond support. But does that mean they should feel free to come and go as they please?
That's the question Reddit users are grappling with right now after a dad asked for advice about a 20-year-old grudge his wife is apparently holding against him.
He opens his post with the subject line, "[Am I the a-hole] for not staying overnight with my wife in the hospital?" and an anecdote about his own wife's family:
My wife comes from a large family and for the most part they are incredible. However, one of their quirks is they feel that if one of them is in the hospital someone HAS to be there, ALL THE TIME. I learned about this when my mother-in-law had knee surgery and my wife and her siblings were making a schedule of who would be there every minute of the day. I told my wife I thought it was odd but she thought I was crazy for NOT thinking someone should be there all of the time.
