My Husband Lied About His Boss Denying Paternity Leave — I Was Shocked When I Discovered the Truth

Sarah always trusted Ethan, believing in his promises and their shared dreams. However, when she discovered his shocking lie about paternity leave, her world fell apart. With her unborn child in mind, Sarah faced a tough decision: confront Ethan and risk everything, or take control of her destiny to protect their future. What would she do?

Ethan and I stood in the nursery, surrounded by pastel colors and baby toys. I could already picture our baby sleeping peacefully in the crib.

“I can’t believe we’re finally doing this,” I said, unable to contain my excitement. “Just imagine those first few weeks with our baby, both of us here, supporting each other.”

Ethan smiled, but it didn’t quite reach his eyes. “Yeah, it’ll be amazing,” he said half-heartedly.

I frowned. “Is everything okay? Did you talk to your boss about paternity leave?” I asked.

He sighed and looked down at his hands. “I did. He wasn’t very supportive.”

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“He wants me to go to another city for an important project. He hinted that if I refuse, I might lose my job.”

I felt like the air had been knocked out of me. “Lose your job? But we need your income, especially now.”

Ethan nodded. “I know. We can’t afford for me to get fired.”

I took a deep breath, trying to keep my voice steady. “So, what are we going to do?”

He shrugged. “I don’t see any other option. I’ll have to go.”

I wanted to cry. We had been so excited about this plan, and now it felt like everything was falling apart. But I couldn’t let Ethan see how much this hurt me. He had enough to worry about.

“Maybe,” I said, trying to sound hopeful, “we can figure out a way to make the most of the time we do have together.”

Ethan reached over and squeezed my hand. “We’ll make it work, Sarah. We always do.”

I forced a smile. “Yeah, we will.”
