A concerned stay-at-home dad has taken to the streets of Reddit to plead his case with his angry wife.

In the post, the man explained that he and his wife are parents to a 4-month-old daughter. He revealed that at the start of their marriage, he and his wife used to work in the city and, as a result, woke up early to take the same train to the city for work.

However, since he became a stay-at-home dad, he sees no reason to wake up.

Now, while his wife wakes up around 6 am every workday, he sleeps in until about 7:45 am or whenever his daughter disturbs.

Unfortunately, his wife isn’t buying any of that and is getting angry with him for sleeping in while she wakes early. She considers it unfair and has asked him to wake up every morning with her. However, the man insists that he can’t as he does most of the night care for their daughter.

Now, he wants to know if he is in the wrong for insisting that he can’t wake up early.

Many internet users advised the man that he wasn’t wrong for wanting to sleep in. While some advised him to talk to his wife about switching roles, others asked him to try and be there for his wife.

Some were, however, able to see the big picture as they told him that his wife’s anger stems from different schedules and lack of intimacy. A Redditor advised:

“Most of the evenings are likely with your daughter as well. You might want to try waking up with her two or three times a week just to have a cup of coffee together.”

This is similar to a story of a father who wants to know if he is wrong for asking his wife, who works the night shift, to wake up at 8 even when she sleeps at 4.

He explained that whenever she comes back, he encourages her to sleep but she prefers to be on her phone as a form of relaxation.

She is usually on her phone until around 4, but her husband then wants her to wake up around 8 like she often does, and she thinks that’s unfair. He now wants to know if he is the bad guy in the relationship.
