33. He was a Grade-A asshole.
When I got to the hospital, he basically told me that I wasn't going to be able to handle unmedicated childbirth, because I hadn't "trained" for it. That was such prudent advice, seeing as I'd already given birth once before, and he had pushed out exactly -hmm- ZERO babies from his loins.

When my first baby was born, my husband and I weren't married, and the day after I delivered, the nurse brought some supplies to my room, including a fake rose with a little tag that read, "Thanks Mom, for life," from the area pro-life organization.

I was so fucking insulted by their presumptiveness that to this day, I still get angry when I think about it. Oh, and that was the extent of their generosity. They certainly didn't pitch in to send me and my bastard child home with a pack of diapers or a little knitted cap, blessed by their good Christian hands. :eyes:
