Since the birth of her son, the mum claims there has been a shift in their marriage. 

Writing online, the woman opened up about how her hubby avoids telling her his plans and keeps most things a secret. 

But after one morning when he was in the shower, she helped herself to his phone after hearing it “pinging”. 

Thinking it was urgent, she picked up his phone and read a group message with his friends organising a “do over” of the night before.

“He absolutely hated telling me what his plans were”

Posting on website Mamamia, the anonymous woman wrote: “From that moment our son was born, nothing changed for my husband.

“He absolutely hated telling me what his plans were.

“As a result of his disinterest in participating in our adjusted family life, our marriage, where we had one been ‘best friends’ and an equal partnership, floundered.

“We fought and fought about it; I just needed something from him to show we made a difference.” 

Her husband had been out until midnight – presumably drinking – and had gone straight to the shower in the morning without speaking to his wife or baby.

The distraught mum recalls reading a text to his pals saying he couldn’t make the drinks because “SWMBO will say no”.

After becoming irritated he had blamed his absence on her, she confronted him about it and he replied: “It means ‘She Who Must Be Obeyed’.” 

She compared reading the message as to being slapped in the face.

“I was mortified. It wasn’t a matter of ‘obeying’ me… It’s not called ‘asking permission’ like he’s a teenager and I’m his mother,” she wrote.

“It’s called respect for your family. After five years of marriage, this is what I’d become to him.” 

Even though the couple had been together for 10 years, the woman knew she had to walk away from her relationship. 

She took her baby and left the husband the next week.

“To me, I didn’t have a choice,” she explained explained.

“Staying with a man who valued us so little wasn’t an option.”
