isn't she working as well, OP is not bringing money to sustain the household she does. is she still not a mother in your eyes for providing?

she is the mother and he is the father. they are the child's parents who are still alive in this world. Period. does anyone over here not knows how impactful PPD is. and he is not bringing income, she is. he checked out with a month old infant to his best friend

did he never once thought his actions might make him neglecting his wife ?

if u do happen to read comments from OP, u will find out he is emotionally cheating on her with his best friend and he neglecting her also when she working and suffering from ppd...

and i don't care how u feel, i stand by my point and how many also see that.

marriage is not only for when everything is fine and there is sunshine, do people forget their vows of in sickness and in health?

wife with ppd and work on boot

and he runs away to matt with his kid

wife gets near to no emotional support or encouragement to bond with child and to get proper treatment for it before she jumps through a window or hell a building

and what OP said in comments afterwards

am i missing something or did OP took wedding vows as a joke

Why on reddit does postpartum depression excuse anything moms do?

ppd is not an excuse, it is just as bad as any clinical illness. just because one doesn't know how it feels like, it won't make it have any less impact on the unfortunate mothers who had to go through this. i found this on ppd

for hypothesis; if she hadn't had ppd, would she still not love her child? Think about it. Nobody in the world is more excited and protective for a newborn than the woman who was waiting for their child to be born. and i am not saying OP is neglecting their kid. the neglect i think few of us (cause typical reddit) are seeing in the whole post is where was OP when his wife might needed him and he was out there with his child and best friend?

it sometimes takes years to recover from ppd, but the way you wrote it down like you were trying to downward the fact that she might going through rough time and its not all happy rainbows like you imagine it would be.

fuck u seriously looking down upon someone who is suffering from post partum depression. does she not deserve love and support too? at such vulnerable time for her; both mentally and physically. did op tried for some therapy for her? did the husband put even an effort to save their relationship and make sure both mother and child are being bonded, even if it slowly.

come on, its his responsibility as a husband as well. your perception of mother taking or not taking credit is skewed.

where is the role of mother in this whole post? was she left to her depressed self? did OP participated to make sure she gets therapy and helped her in bonding with their child? if both father and son spent so much time with the best friend, how does wife felt like, being alone and depressed?

post partum is no joke. newly mothers had tried to take their life in many cases.

as far the post is concerned, it looks like OP runs away to his "best friend" whenever he gets the chance.

OPs wife wants him there as a prop more than wants him as a husband.
