A career woman whose husband stays at home with the children complains about their relationship. After a promotion, her husband thinks that she is cheating on him.

A female executive at an international company shared her professional and personal challenges on Reddit. She is the family’s main breadwinner and her role is met with suspicion and reproach from her husband, who is primarily responsible for child care. “I got a promotion and now my husband thinks I’m cheating,” she captioned her post.

The manager states that her company is experiencing a strong growth spurt and as a senior executive she is heavily involved in hiring processes, the development of new systems and other aspects of the business. “I go out of my way to get all the tasks done,” she claims.

The situation is now getting worse. Her husband accuses her of being unfaithful. “He says my work dinners and overtime must mean I’m no longer faithful to him,” the woman said. She is already trying to do her afternoon meetings from home and coordinate all appointments with him, but with the position comes a lot of appointments. “And with the salary too,” she writes.

“It feels like he would be happier if I didn’t work and was the main breadwinner,” she writes.

Your husband seems overwhelmed and dissatisfied with his situation at home. According to the manager, he does about 40 percent of the housework while he spends most of his time looking after the children.

In her post on Reddit, she suggests hiring a nanny to give him more free time. “I really have to force him to leave the living room,” said the woman. Your partner spends most of his time on the phone and then complains that he has “no time” to pursue his hobbies.

The manager feels punished as a working mother and questions whether she will ever find the right balance between work and family. After all, she also takes care of the household, manages to be home for dinner 28 out of 30 days and gives her partner gifts and attention. She states: “My partner has something against me.”

At the same time, she wonders whether a working man would face anywhere near as much backlash from his partner in the same situation. “I feel like I’m being treated unfairly as a working woman,” said the mother.

Since the introduction of citizens’ money, there has been the assertion that social assistance is more worthwhile than working. Instead of cutting aid, a significant increase in the minimum wage would make full-time jobs more worthwhile again, at least the SPD is convinced.

How should we deal with the people from Ukraine who end up with us as war refugees? Should they continue to receive immediate citizenship benefits like they do now, or should they initially be treated like asylum seekers? Here the father of a Ukrainian family who has been living in a large northern German city for a year and a half has his say.
