A father-of-two says he wants to divorce his wife after her decision to give birth for a second time made him feel ‘resentful’ towards her.
Sharing details on a Reddit thread, titled: ‘Am I the ***hole for wanting to divorce my wife for the birth of our second child’, the man wrote.
‘After the birth of our first child, I discovered that I don’t like being a father. I don’t feel that I am good at it,’ he wrote.
The man went on to say he’d told his wife he ‘never wanted to have another kid’ and as his first child got older he was looking forward to being able to spend more time with her ‘without a kid around’, shares Daily Mail.
‘I was also looking forward to being able to do more interesting things with our firstborn.’
When his wife fell pregnant with their second child, he said the pair discussed their options and settled on a decision to terminate.
However, on the day of the scheduled appointment, the man said his wife couldn’t go through with the procedure and ‘guilted him’ into keeping the child.
‘She was concerned about the physical and mental consequences. Now, two years on after the birth of our second, I still resent my wife. I love our kids more than I love her,’ he explained.
The post has since been deleted after receiving a mixed response from users. You can still read the responses to the original post.

Many argue it was not his decision to make and suggested maybe he should have had a vasectomy if he was so against having more children.
