Husband only gave wife $100 for holiday food, gifts, and decorations, so she decided to do the following…

A stay-at-home mom, grappling with financial constraints, turned to Reddit seeking advice when her husband, the primary breadwinner, allocated a meager $100 for holiday expenses. The husband, having prioritized a football trip overseas, left her with the responsibility of managing all aspects of the holiday, from decorations to gifts.

The couple’s holiday plans took an unexpected turn when, on December 20, the husband informed his wife about the $100 budget for festivities after being absent until then. Unhappy with the amount, the wife confronted him about prioritizing personal interests over family needs. Despite ensuing arguments, no resolution was reached.

Several days later, the woman discovered an envelope with $100 and a note from her husband, urging her “to make it work.” Despite his messages, she stood firm in her decision not to organize the holiday with the limited budget.

The woman’s Reddit post gained considerable attention, with many expressing support for her. Commenters criticized the husband’s financial control, prioritization of personal interests, and lack of respect for family needs. Suggestions varied from standing up for herself to considering legal action for the sake of her and her children’s future. The consensus was that she deserved better treatment and shouldn’t tolerate such behavior.
