I never thought this could happen to me. My husband and I were impatiently awaiting the arrival of a baby. I was in the hospital where I was told I would have a baby in 7.5 months.
I returned home, inspired and happy. I walked through the door of the house, but no one greeted me. My husband, his father and his mother were in the kitchen, discussing something.
“When will you finally be done with her?” » my mother-in-law said to my husband. I walked in, and it seemed like the three of them were discussing something, so I decided to lighten the mood:
“I’m pregnant!” Congratulations ! » No one showed joy on their face. My husband’s parents got up and left, asking their son to think about something I didn’t understand at the time.
And then came the day I gave birth. My husband arrived with his parents to pick me up from the maternity ward.
The first thing my father-in-law said was, “You’ll get maternity pay, I suppose… You’ll give it to me.” » I was hurt when I heard these words.
I got in the car. The discussions about my maternity benefits went on and on, and my husband said, “Just give it to him, he won’t stop.” You clearly see. »It was my money and my child’s money. How did I suddenly have to give it to him?
My father-in-law heard this and said, “Don’t make a fuss, we have been looking for a new wife for our son for a long time.”
Give up maternity benefits. I will repair my Zhiguli (a car), just so that there is something left for your son. ” I answered :
“Your car has nothing to do with me. If you want to fix it, do it with your own money. Forget my maternity benefits.
I won’t talk to them anymore. I am tired of enduring such despicable treatment towards me and my child in my own apartment.
I didn’t work to give my hard-earned money to an incomprehensible husband! Especially when he’s looking for a new wife while I’m pregnant. And they don’t even care that much about their grandson. »
