Father-to-be walks away from childbirth: “I couldn’t help anyway.”

Do not disappoint

It’s no big surprise that Heather is upset upon hearing this message. Nevertheless, Adrian leaves for work to give the important presentation. “If I had missed this meeting, I would have disappointed my father, and he has always given me everything, I wanted to be there for him. The presentation went very well. When I came out of the office, I saw a text message: Heather had given birth.”


“Heather is still furious with me for leaving her alone. But I am the only breadwinner and Heather’s mother also thinks that Heather is just very emotional. Heather even says that she no longer sees me as her husband and is considering a divorce.” Heather is obviously not the only one who finds Adrian’s behavior unacceptable. “The woman you once promised that you would always be there for her experienced perhaps one of the most traumatic events of her life. Rather than supporting her, did you think it was more important to help your dad? Your wife and children should be able to count on you for support. They should be your priority,” says a reader on the forum.

“You could have helped”

In addition, many people express their opinion that Adrian should have been there to support his wife. “While she was scared and in a lot of pain, you could have been there for her,” said one reader on the forum, a view expressed by many. “Heather squeezed your hand very hard. Do you sometimes think that is comparable to the pain of childbirth?” another reader notes. Adrian’s father is also under fire: “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. You and your father are both completely wrong.” Do you also support Heather and the readers on the forum?
