It’s common for women to want another woman in the delivery room with them when they have a baby, whether it be their mom, best friend, sister, etc.
However, you’d think the mom-to-be would also want their spouse in the room with them when they have their baby, right?
That’s not the case for one man whose wife wants her best friend in the delivery room while she gives birth instead of him.
He’s 27-years-old, and his wife is 25. She’s currently in her third trimester of pregnancy and recently hurt him when she revealed that she’d rather have her best friend in the delivery room than him.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time he’s been cast aside and replaced with her best friend. His wife’s friend has been more involved in the pregnancy than he has.
When his wife got pregnant, her friend came to live with them to help her out, and she hasn’t been paying rent, per his wife’s wishes.
Since then, his wife’s friend has been accompanying her to all baby-related events, from shopping for clothes to finding out the baby’s gender.
Anytime he questions his wife’s preference for her friend over him, he says everything they’ve been doing to prepare for the baby is “more of a job for women” and that he wouldn’t like it.
“I just feel really suffocated by my wife’s best friend’s presence at this point, but whenever I try to bring it up with my wife, she complains that I’m acting toxic by wanting to make her cut her best friend from he life,” he explained.
