She and her husband had been married for close to seven years, and they had five kids together (two boys, one female, and just recently, she gave birth to their fraternal twins, a boy, and a girl).

When she got married, she had hoped to graduate high school, but things didn’t work out as planned because life got busy. Her husband had an important job that required him to travel a lot, and taking care of five kids also kept her busy at home.

A while ago, she welcomed her twins and had to be on bed rest for a long time. They had to employ additional help to handle childcare tasks that involved mobility, so she found herself with some extra free time.

Her mom had a friend who worked at a testing center that conducted General Education Diploma tests. Her mom encouraged her to refresh her knowledge and get her GED. So, she decided to take an online prep class.

She found that she learned better at her own pace than in a classroom. The subjects they tested her on were easier for her now than when she was a teenager.

Even though she was back on her feet, she continued studying after dropping the older kids at school. Her husband didn’t seem impressed with her efforts and thought a GED wouldn’t be useful for her career.

Despite her husband’s doubts, she took the GED test and passed. She was excited to share the news with him. “Yes! I passed, I passed!” she screamed. Unfortunately, he didn’t react as excitedly as she had expected. He had always said it was easy, so she felt hurt that he wasn’t happy for her.

He Asked What Was Wrong

He noticed she was upset and asked her what was bothering her. She explained, saying, “I worked very hard, and this was the essential building block to being able to start a career.”
