Man Asks if He’s Wrong for Not Making His Kids Be Quiet When His Wife Had a Migraine

Here’s my rule in life: if someone says they have a headache and they feel like s**t, you leave them alone and be as quiet as possible.

But it sounds like this situation is pretty ugly, huh?

Is this guy acting like an a**hole to his wife?

Read his story below and let us know.

AITA for not making my children be quiet while my wife had a headache?

“Been with my wife for 2 years; I have two children from a previous relationship who are 5 and 8.

Currently 7 months pregnant, been married and living together for 5 months…it’s been an adaption for everyone, mostly the children.

During our relationship even before living together I knew my wife got the occasional migraine, she takes pain k**lers but says they don’t help so she’ll usually spend the day in our bedroom and sleep.

Kids are at home and wife has a migraine, I’m working from home.

Kids are doing what they normally do, playing.

Wife texts me asking to keep them from making so much noise, I was in a meeting when she texted so I didn’t actually look at it till an hour later.

She’s upset but the way I see it is it’s the children’s home? They’re playing, what am I meant to say “my wife has a migraine go read a book?”

I don’t think I’m TA, wife does.

Figured I’d ask here.
