He Was Hungry Every Night After Work But His Wife Refused to Cook His Meals Because She Didn’t Want to be His “Maid”

A man recently asked if he was wrong for expecting his wife to leave food out for him whenever he got home late from work. When he finally approached her about the subject, a huge argument ensued. Here’s what happened.

They Moved to a New Place

The man and his wife had been together for more than four years and married for a little over a year. They had always had a loving relationship until lately. Recently, they moved into a small apartment that’s only 700 square feet, and this somehow affected their relationship.

He Worked More

Now he worked really long hours during the week. Sometimes, he would only have one day off or sometimes none per week. On average, he worked 75-80 hours a week and made more than 80% of their total income.

His Wife’s Job Was Part-Time

His wife had a different job. She worked 3-4 days a week for about 6-7 hours each day. She helped out at home by doing most of the chores and paying for small things like tips, drinks, and fun groceries.

Unfortunately, He Worked Late

The issue started when his long work hours became tough for him. He would come home very late at night, really hungry for an actual meal, not snacks. “I just don’t want to have to cook something for myself after a 13-hour day after doing the same all week. I just want to be able to eat with a minimal amount of work when I get home,” he said.

One night, he got home around 1:30 a.m. and found his wife sleeping on the couch. She had eaten a personal pizza from Little Caesar’s.

He got excited thinking she left some in the fridge for him but was disappointed to see none left, so he heated up some Chef Boyardee, ate it, and went to sleep.

“The next day, I had the same kind of night and got home around 1:30 a.m. There she was, passed out, with a bowl of macaroni and weenies (which I really like). But again, there was nothing in the fridge for me,” he said.

He Talked to Her

Feeling frustrated, he woke her up and asked why she couldn’t have made enough food for both of them and saved his portion in the fridge. His wife got upset and said he was treating her like a maid. Then she called him lazy for wanting her to cook for him.

He Thought She Didn’t Care

He tried to explain that he was just hungry after a long day and felt sad that she didn’t think about him. He said, “I think you’re not being considerate,” and that made her very angry. Ultimately, he just wanted her to care.

Surprised, the wife left their apartment and went to her mom’s house, where she cried a lot. He got a text from his mother-in-law telling him to think more about his wife’s feelings. He felt very sad and unimportant, so he didn’t respond to the message.

Was he wrong?

After the argument, the man wasn’t sure if he had overreacted, so reached out to the internet and asked for advice.

People Responded

One person wrote, “Christ, the least she could do is double what she makes/orders and put it in the fridge. That seems like a no-brainer to me.”

Another user said, “He is asking for thoughtfulness, not slavery. He’s only working this much so that she can work so little….”
