Pregnant Mum of Twins Screams at Hubby for Getting the Wrong Ice Cream – Who Is in the Wrong Here?

Pregnant Mum of Twins Screams at Hubby for Getting the Wrong Ice Cream – Who Is in the Wrong Here?

A man has asked the internet if he is in the wrong for considering withdrawing support from his wife who is pregnant with twins after she screamed at him when he came home from the shops with the wrong flavour of ice cream at 3am.

Taking to Reddit’s popular sub “AITA”, the man asked if he would be the asshole for no longer giving in to his wife’s demands after constantly being berated for no reason.

WIBTA if I tell my wife that I will no longer be helping with her pregnancy cravings or sleep next to her because she lashed out at me for not finding choco chip ice cream at 3am? from r/AmItheAsshole

Now, it’s no secret that being pregnant is tough. And while many of us have not had a pregnancy of multiples, I’m sure we can all agree that it would be even harder to manage a bellyful of arms and legs than it would be with just the one baby in there. But no matter how challenging it might be, there is no excuse for screaming at your most favourite person over it! Sheesh!

People responding to this subReddit are asked to start their response with an acronym that sums up their opinions – YTA (you’re the asshole), NTA (not the asshole) and ESH (everyone sucks here). While a lot of responses argued the for and against asshole status, this one was clearly the best:


The man should also see if he can bring up his wife’s emotional state at her next doctor’s appointment, as her stress and severe mood swings could be a sign of anxiety or depression. And it is better to nip that in the bud now, before their entire lives are turned upside down with the arrival of two tiny, adorable, screaming tyrants.

What do you think? Do you agree with the top response?

  1. Maybe it was best he didn’t sleep with her that night. We don’t know what she might have done if he did. Maybe he felt the same way, and to give her some space. If he tells her he knows it’s tough and suggests he goes to the next appt. with her, he can ask what he can do to help her emotionally
