It's been three years since Steven and Gloria Nelms got married. Gloria gave birth to a boy named Ezra, and when he was born, she decided to quit her job. She stayed at home to take care of their baby, but Steven did not like the way Gloria handled their finances.
It All Started as a Wonderful Marriage
On his blog, Steven wrote that his wife's income couldn't even cover the expenses of basic child care. The couple decided that Gloria should quit her job and dedicate herself to the baby's needs.
The Baby Arrived
Steven stated: "With childcare costs, it would’ve been a wash with her income at best. So we decided that she would stay home as long as it made sense.”
He Thinks She's Too Costly for Him
Shortly after, Steven realized that he couldn't afford his wife. He found out that she spent way too much money. Read on to see that he wasn't wrong at all.
Taking Care of a Baby Can Be Very Challenging
“I’ve had this thought in my head for a while now. I’ve been thinking that I can’t afford for my wife to be a stay-at-home mom. My wife stays home and takes care of our son every single day. She changes his diapers, feeds him, plays with him, puts him down for his nap, and comforts him when he’s upset'', said Steven.
