r/AmITheA**hole My Wife Abandoned Our Infant In A Burning Building

r/AmITheA**hole In today's episode, OP drives up to his home as his wife runs out of their home in a panic. His wife tells him that the house is on fire, and that the baby is inside. Naturally, OP runs inside to save his infant child, all while the wife tries to stop him. OP put out the fire in the kitchen with a fire extinguisher and then saves the baby. He became furious at the wife for abandoning their child in a burning building, and now the wife is mad at him because he was mad at her.

  • I feel like there is something wrong with mom in the fire story. I get that stressful situations can tend to make you freak out and think irrationally. But after the stressful situation was over she was more concerned about herself than her child. That makes me think of postpartum depression. I hope she gets help. Edit: correcting assumptions.

  • the fire story reminds of this story from my mothers child hood. There was a projects near her school nicked named murder wood two of her class class mates lived there. they had the brite idea to throw a Molotov cocktail into a window. they killed a infant and burned a large majority of it.The next morning two cops in civilian attire came and drug one of the out.the other went into hiding in Washington dc we were in Alabama and he was found 25 years later and tried for murder and arson.

  • To the man whose daughter was left in the burning house. Get a paternity test dude. There are too many red flags to suggest this. First the fire wasn't very dangerous as, just like the man, the wife could use the fire extinguisher and put the fire off. Second, when OP was going to get the baby, the wife tried to stop him. Third, the wife was more worried for her bare foot than her baby. Shame. Even witches care for their children. This woman seems to be their godmother. Decide wisely whether you want to spend the rest of your life with the fear of getting crucified. Good luck.

  • Re the fire story: I would not trust the wife any longer. Even though I have seen teh stoopid erupt from reasonable folks during emergencies, it shows a narcissistic tendency to be so concerned with her feet, her safety, etc. over the child. Most parents would, even if they acted stupidly, at least be freaking out about the baby still in the house. But the wife doesn't even mention the baby. The husband has to ask. That rings alarm bells to me. I would be planning to get out and get custody before it gets worse. But then, I've been burned by a severely narcissistic partner in a relationship.

  • Hurricane : hurry to save my family Flood : Hurry to save my family out of the house Fire : Well, mom I let you get this You can put on snakes, tarentules, mouses but I would always be instinctively highly scared of fire (even if it’s piece of paper that catch fire) People don’t always react well in stress situations, but if you can keep it calm, take things in hands ! [edit] My mom literally like to play with fire (and scared me and my siblings in your childhood), I’m the opposite of this like my dad and flee it. But I’m good with all type of bugs, what she hate the most, especially caterpillars (processionary caterpillar) that I can easily deal with it.

  • First story with driving accident... Funny thing, you should tell them to tell their lawyer to pay closer attention to laws concerning licenses and insurance. I haven't done the research fully myself but supposedly, in reality, you don't need a license for personal use. Insurance companies and various government bodies have conspired together to make it seem like you do, but the actual laws concerning needing a license are for commercial transportation of goods, not personal use of a vehicle.

  • You can frame the situation anyway you like rslash but according to guy telling the story it was a small pan fire which he managed to extinguish with out too much effort, the way to the child was clear and safe so the mother could've easily grabbed it before fleeing the fire and the mother' immediate worry, well only worry from the sounds of it, was her own hurt feet. These things are wrong and show her true colours, that guy needs to leave her and take his baby out of her care.

She even heard her daughter calling for her to help. She said she ran to "get help" that all I remember of it, but their father, who they're seperated from, was destroyed.

  • If I were house-fire OP, I'd be wondering if the wife set the fire intentionally, b/c she's fucking crazy and wants to kill the kid. Running out of an on-fire building and leaving your baby inside = there is something VERY WRONG with you. OP, if you want to be nice, tell her, "Psychiatrist. NOW. No unsupervised time with baby until you're at least diagnosed and medicated." But were I you, I wouldn't be able to move past this. I would divorce and make sure the judge hears what happened the day of the fire, seek sole custody.

  • So much for Material instincts. I can understand she panicked about the fire but why was she only worry about her foot afterwards. After the fire was out she should have came to her senses and realized what could have happened. I definitely think they need to make family emergency plans and practice them as well as some therapy, first aid/safety classes, and maybe some parenting classes wouldn't hurt either. I understand the urge to stay away and to want to protect your child but eventually you need to go home. She is the Mother of your child after all and as long as she hasn't been neglectful or abusive to your baby before this happened I'm sure it can be worked out.

  • I have a very strong flight response to stress, but the way I compensate for that is to try to think through possible situations/reactions before they happen. Obviously I can't anticipate for everything, but it does help so that, as soon as I start running/whatever and get over the initial burst of panic, I already know what I need to do. For example, I was an RA in college and one of my duties was to help make sure everyone got out during a fire alarm, including myself. Way back in freshman year, I figured out the checklist of things I would need and learned it so well I wouldn't even have to think about it. Then as an RA, it was just that list plus my other duties, which I knew beforehand and again, memorized so I could do them without having to think about it.

  • 14:14 sounds like her instinct in an emergency is to delegate, to get help. The “find an adult” instinct. Which can become a problem once YOU’RE supposed to be the adult. I don’t think immediately running out to get help instead of immediately running to get the baby means she’s a bad mom in the sense she doesn’t care about her daughter, but she does need to work on independence and problem-solving skills. There are plenty of situations when the best thing to do is find someone else to help you, but there are also situations when you don’t have time for that and need the skills and confidence to help yourself. Honestly, I probably would have done exactly what she did. I don’t trust myself to deal with anything serious, so my first instinct is to look for someone else. It’s one of the reasons I worry about how I’ll do once I have to live independently.

It was only a little nudge like your one because it was going slowly, but still, they should really have paid attention before trying to back up into another car. The reason we didn't back up to get away was so we DIDN'T do that.

  • What the narrator is saying about him and his wife's polar opposite reactions to high stress situations, it is most likely evolution. Back when we had to go hunt and gather for food, men were usually the ones to handle the dangerous situations. And when they were in life or death situations when hunting big game prey, or fighting some dangerous predator, a man's adrenaline will kick in, his brain will go into hyperdrive, and his instincts will take over. He'll do whatever is necessary to get the fuck out of there alive. A woman also has this, but to a much lesser degree. A woman will be more inclined to think carefully about the problem, and come up with a solution logically. This is because they were usually not in immediate high risk situations like the men. They had more time to think before they were in imminent danger. These reactions were formed due to each gender being in completely different situations, and so their reactions were formed to be perfect for those situations. Its just biology and evolution. There are exceptions to this rule, but generally, this is how it is.

  • Oof that fire story... My mom did something similar. My dad was reasonably incapable of getting past that. He should've divorced sooner since my mom cheated on him after that. Before the inretrievable incident, my dad was mowing the lawn once and mom was walking me in a stroller down the block. She didn't secure me well enough and I toppled out of my stroller, face down on the ground. My mom panicked and screamed until dad ran off the lawnmower a block away to pick me up off the ground. So... Yeah. These types are big red flags for me. Your wife needs schooling and therapy to work through situations or you need to leave because if not this time, next time will be worse. Trust me from someone who has seen the next step in that line of 'incapable of making a rational decision'.

  • no, this is 100% wrong here. i get the feeling that the mom did this maliciously. First SHE runs out of the house leaving her daughter behind. second, she tries to STOP her husband from going inside and saving their daughter, 3rdly, she LEAVES and apparently is gone way longer than it takes even the fire fighters to get there. 4thly, the next day shes MAD AT HER HUSBAND, for not being there to take HER to the er about her feet, and does not focus on her daughter at ALL. She's not upset, apologetic, or guilty at all for leaving her daughter inside the house with a FIRE that could have KILLED her. All she can focus on is herself, and how SHE feels. She didnt even ask about her daughter at ALL. This to me just screams narcissitic behavior. I get the feeling the mom was tired of being the mom and wanted all of her husbands attention without a child. Im not saying she intentionally started the fire, though it would surprise me if she did. But she definitely took advantage when the opportunity presented itself.

  • No, there’s no excuse. They had a CHILD, the wife was one, dumb as hell, 2 she was bitching about HER feet being hurt running. Doesn’t matter if the fire was contained when he got home, fire spreads fast. Everyone is to be accounted for in this. We learned this in elementary school and through high school. That didn’t seem to stick. While the fire hadn’t spread she could have made it to the baby and ran out! I don’t care if it was high stress, kids are the priority in these situations to any parent with sense! I’m not giving leeway on this, unless there was a second story and the kids were trapped in their room then yeah you can’t get to them. But AGAIN there was a clear way to the baby because the fire JUST started. That’s dangerous even more so in rural areas, that’s not something to be careless about when it comes to your own BABY!

  • Hey Slash, the stress situation is on point because believe it or not I am working in a sort of high-stress place. I work in Animal control and if a dog or cat freaks out it's a split-second decision we have to act before and then some. I have two situations for you; 1. We had a really small dog but this small dog was abused and suffered mentally to the point it will bite children. So, the last-ditch plan was to see if one of us could cure the dogs (Sadly didn't work out dear reader). This dog at this point almost bit everyone or did bite someone in our staff except me and some other guy. I was handing a treat to this dog (very bad move) and it bit the ever loving shit out of my hand to the point part of my nail was coming off. Thankfully I somewhat used to the pain I did not react too much to it so the damage was not too bad. 2. There a numerous times dogs do escape from the cage and this is one of those days. I was cleaning the room next to it and was going to clean that same room but one of the more bitey ones escaped (Don't worry, he lives and just loves to be mouthy). Well, as I walk in they just stroll up to me really fast. Thankfully he stopped right before me because otherwise, my fight or flight response would have kicked in. So, I kneeled down & played with him a bit, and escort our big boy to his cage. So, I am like your wife where I slow down and very rarely I go with the quick response. Sometimes it's not all about what could have been done but how does a person respond and what can you do after. You did good speeding up r/Slash because I would do a sort of mixed response which could cause a bigger collision.

  • My issue with the fire story isn't the moms reaction *that* day (for multiple reasons) but the next. Her only concern were her feet and not the well-being of her own child that she left behind in a burning building (even if not on purpose). I mean, no matter how much you loose your head in such a situation, at the very least you would show concern as soon as you calmed down and a whole day is long enough for that. It shows that the mom doesn't care about the daughter.

I asked, “Do you realize I just saved our daughter’s life?” He seemed to think that of course it was something I should have handled even though I was in the kitchen doing dishes and he was literally sitting right next to her at the table. 🙄🙄🙄

  • Imo, when you have a child, you NEED to realize, your life is no longer your own. Your wants, needs and your very life should NEVER outweigh your own.. that mother thought she and her husband were above the life of their child, never even thinking about the child. Children don't choose to be born, but parents choose to have them and should choose to nurture and protect them. Idk, but if I grew up and heard that my "loving" parent said that, I would never trust them to be completely selfless..

  • If you were like the wife in the fire story, you would have just kept going the same speed instead of saving you and your wife by speeding up. You were the more reactive between you and your wife, but at least you were still somewhat rational and avoided the collision the best you could while panicking, unlike the mom flipping out about a tiny grease fire and leaving her baby to fucking die

  • I hope the father whose wife abandoned their baby never goes back and files for custody. I hope he told the fire department exactly what he saw and did.

  • The story with the baby and fire. Ok for 1- the first thing I would of done is get the baby out before running away 2- grab the phone and call 911 AFTER making sure the baby is ok. 3-safety classes and first aid. But the fact that the mom literally abandoned the baby, didn't bother going back in after her and she tried keeping her husband from going inside marks up a the biggest red flag that one can get. How do we know she didn't just purposely cause it? It may have been claimed to be an accident but the fact she didn't at all try to save her own daughter, tried to stop the dad from saving her, and literally had the audacity to complain him not driving her to urgent care over her foot which not even bothering asking if the baby is ok or not, all that tells me she doesn't care or want the child and part of me has the feeling of her trying to get rid of her. OP- NTA, you saved your daughter, risking your life as a good parent should. I'm sorry but since she did that. Not only will I be recommending you to leave her but keep her away from your daughter in case she might actually try to do something bad to her. Your wife gets 10 out of 5 for child endangerment and neglect. (Yes I gave her double because I can't stand parents like this)

  • I did a first aid course before I had thought of having kids and it came in handy when one sons was chocking something on the floor

  • I understand that the mother ran away cause she was scared. It was her impulse and her first instinct. However, the fact that she tried to stop OP from saving her daughter, makes her an a-hole

  • op from the first story you are not the butt hole, yet you have toxic friends. you did nothing wrong so please don't feel bad about your choice, op from the second story, you definitely need to leave this guy, he sounds like an immature j e r k and you deserve better, op from the third story yeah you did nothing wrong, this is your and your fiancee's wedding not your families, who cares if you are having a kid before marriage. your family are butt holes minus the little sister, do what makes you and your wife happy. now op from the last story, i understand why you would be angry at your wife, she did leave your child in a house that was on fire. maybe she did panic yet she seems to be selfish, not once asking if the baby was okay or holding the baby just upset you left her alone. my advice take some first aid classes, learn how to deal with fires, and family counseling. if your wife refuses to do any of these things, well my friend you have your answer and get a divorce.

  • During a high stress situation is to go and act, if I'm scared I'll try to run because I can't handle it,if I'm in a big argument I'll hide so I don't say something I'll regret. Everything really depends because I can't handle things

  • The one with the baby and the fire. I know everyone reacts different. But I would die first, before I would leave one of my kids in a burning house or any other dangerous situation. Thay are both in their 30s now and still I would risk my life for them.

  • I totally agree about the fire story. It would be easy to say that you would do everything right in that situation but not everyone is as good in an emergency as they think they are. She should probably prepare herself better for emergencies but everyone in the comments is acting like she hated her baby and threw the baby into the fire or something. She probably just panicked and ran out of the house like a lot of people would do. If her baby is a brand new infant she might be having some post pregnancy stuff going on where her memory or rescuing making skills aren’t even back to normal. Everyone is saying she’s a horrible mother with no maternal instincts but none of us know the entire situation. I don’t think either of them are the asshole but I do think people in the comments are giving their hypothetical selves waaaay too much credit.

  • When you are a parent especially a mother the first thing you think about is the child and most parents would DIE to save their kids. This woman is not mother material because she ran out without the baby. Red fucking flag!
