When she questioned him about this he refused to discuss it at first. This started an argument between the two and things heated up.

He yelled angrily at her saying that he paid for her ticket and that should be enough. Telling her she should stop acting like “royalty”.

“Economy Isn’t So Bad”

He explained that if she thought about it, that economy-class just made sense for her. After all she didn’t work and he did. Upset, she decided not to go altogether.

When she decided not to go he changed his tune. Begging her to go with them. She refused him, going to pick up their children from her mothers house.

Rude Messages

Hours later his friend sent her some rude messages. He called her entitled. Saying that this was why he didn’t want him to invite her to begin with, and that her attitude proves his point.

She did not respond to him. Instead blocking him as he grew increasingly rude towards her the last few months.

Her husband then began to gaslight her. Telling her that she cries when they exclude her, but when he finally “decides” to include her she acts out.

Questioning Behavior
