AITA: 'He's a deadbeat dad': Mooching husband shames wife and moves out as punishment for taking a weekend to herself after she slaves over 4 children and a full time job without his help

One working woman and mother of four kids, recently got into a fight with her deadbeat husband about their shared parenting and Reddit…
