After the discovery, the woman said she “lost it” and refused to speak to her husband for days. He began begging her to speak to him again, arguing that “he had to do this otherwise his family were going to shun him”.
Next, she said: “He handed me a paper with all the ‘pros’ of keeping this name explaining that our son will be the ‘golden grandchild’ and my inlaws will favor him over the other grandchildren cause of his name.”
Her husband broke down crying after she wouldn’t budge on her decision. He called his wife “selfish” and told her she was “robbing our son of a good life and good future provided by his grandparents”.
People in the comments made it clear whose side in the matter they were on.
One person argued: “If you have more children, how are they going to feel watching their brother be the favorite because of his name? Put a stop to this now.”
Another wrote: “Your husband has 0 respect for you. This while you had just given birth to his child and had a medical emergency. How are you ever going to trust him again?. He is showing 0 love for you.”
Someone else added: “What he did was a huge betrayal, and frankly, he's getting off lightly with the silent treatment.
“Also, his list of ‘pros’ is crap. If those are things your son would have with BIL's name, they are things he should still have with the name the two of you chose together.”
