There’s direct evidence that I was a crap husband and that my ex-wife made the right choice in ending our marriage.
I left her alone and crying in the hospital the night our son was born. Fact.
When given the choice, I often chose myself and my preferences over her and her preferences. Fact.
During disagreements between us in which I felt confident in my beliefs, I treated her as if she was wrong, and as if her ideas or beliefs were stupid. Fact.
Because my ex-wife is female—and in my life experience, I’d seen mostly women handling the lion’s share of household tasks and childcare like laundry, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, decorating, and basically everything related to caring for babies and small children—my general behavior and state-of-being in our marriage was one of passively leaving most life and household management tasks and decisions to her.
