A husband and wife both work. She becomes pregnant and gives birth to twins. Since she earns 150k a year and the husband only earns 30k. When he asks who would look after the babies she says, give up your job because you earn only 30k and I earn 150k, We can save up money for theirs and our future that way. The husband does not want to be a nearly full time father to the kids or give up his job, even though he got on well with the babies and helped out. The row about it comes to a head and he slaps her across the face (never done it before) and walks out. The whole conversation was recorded on the baby monitor including the slap.
His wife calls her father, an ex seal and he arrives at the doorstep with the police. The husband gets arrested and jailed for 3 months for that one slap. During the court case it comes out that he had one previous conviction years ago where a bar fight broke out, obviously fueled by drink where the husband hospitalized a guy for a month. During his time in prison his wife divorces him.
What do you think about that. Is their anything you think the husband could have suggested to alleviate or provide a solution rather than repeat a one off violent outburst in his past.
