Let’s dig into the details
A bit of background
OP’s son announced that he had decided to become a marine biologist instead of a doctor. This caused OP’s husband to blame her for ruining his “bright future”
Even OP’s MIL laid her own accusations. She was adamant that OP could end up destroying the lives of her son and grandchild
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“Your husband escalated by threatening your child’s future and that right there is kicking out territory.”
“It's ridiculous of your husband to assume his 9-year-old knows with absolute certainty what he wants to be when he grows up.”
“NTA…Mama bear kicked in because your husband's expectations are TOXIC AF.”
“I am going to say NTA for your original question, but screaming at your husband to get out is ridiculous behavior.”
“The kid is 9! In a week he will be on to some other dream job.“
“What the hell is your husband saying... Your kid will wanna be an ambulance driver tomorrow if they watch an A & E drama with you.”
OP acknowledged she might have overreacted by kicking him out, but she still maintained her stance on the issue.
Redditors agreed that his anger was ridiculous; kids have the most hilarious and impossible career prospects; it was no cause for alarm—the kid was nine!
Fortunately, OP extended an apology, leading to a joint decision for couples counseling.
