A woman faces marital strain as her husband’s irresponsible sister leaves three kids at their home and disappears. The couple, initially united in not wanting children, reluctantly takes in the kids, leading to increased responsibilities and financial strain.
The woman, working from home to care for the children, feels overwhelmed. Despite her husband’s desire to keep the kids, she maintains her stance against raising them.
The husband’s dedication clashes with the woman’s aversion to motherhood, leading her to seek a divorce. Reddit users sympathize with the challenging situation, acknowledging the woman’s boundaries and expressing concern for the children.
Some mention the importance of wedding vows, but the woman clarifies their commitment was based on staying together until parting was a better choice.
