Sharing her story on Reddit, the woman, who has physical disabilities, said she had initially been ecstatic to secure an interview with a company who was willing to facilitate her needs - only to have the opportunity stolen from her.

She explained that she was let go from a job in 2019 and had since struggled to find another company willing to hire her.

While she was okay at first with her husband becoming the "breadwinner", she soon found herself doing all the chores around the house, which led to her feeling "physical discomfort."

"He made a deal with me and promised that everything will be 50/50 once I start working again," she wrote. "I told him I would find a job and he laughed and said 'good luck'."

However, when she shared the exciting news with her husband, he was less than impressed and said nothing.

She soon discovered that he had rang up to cancel her interview.

"My husband came home and admitted cancelling the interview," she revealed.

"I asked why and he said this job had lots of requirements and I didn't seem fit to be accepted there so to spare me the heartache of being rejected, he just cancelled the interview.

"I flipped out on him and told him he destroyed my one and only chance at landing a job but he said he was just feeling concerned about my wellbeing."

She added that her husband had also deleted her social media accounts, claiming they were bad for her mental health.

Reddit users rushed to the comments section to condemn his actions.

"The first response always seems to be to leave, but in this case, definitely. He's trying to control every aspect of your life - run, before he succeeds," one person wrote.

"I read that first line and said out loud GET OUT! This man has red flags as far as the eye can see," another said.

"This screams abuse. You quit a job, became full time chore doer, basically have no life outside of what your husband wants you to have and then he cancels your potential way out and isolates you from anyone on your social media. Leave," a third added.
