Even in the most communicative of relationships, it can be hard to ask your partner for what you need, especially if it involves them changing their behavior. But slogging through those difficult conversations is far healthier than holding it all inside and letting resentment build up.

Still, broaching a partner's frustrating habits can sometimes backfire, especially if they're in a fragile space, so at times it feels like more risk than gain.

An exhausted husband on the Am I The A*shole subreddit found himself in this precarious position during a recent conversation with his pregnant wife.

AITA for asking my pregnant wife to stop crying, and to help me around the house with chores?

Good morning all.

OP kicked off the post by sharing that his wife is a few months pregnant and stays at home with their 4-year-old.

My wife is currently going on around 11 weeks pregnant and she's stay-at-home with our 4 year old kid. Even before we got married nearly a decade ago, I always did most of the housework. I did (and still do) about 95% of the cooking (because figuring out a recipe makes her anxious apparently), I do the sweeping and the mopping, I make the grocery lists and go do the groceries, I take out the trash,I do both of our laundry, I do the dishes, so on and so forth.
