Advice and support

My husband and I have been married since 9/24/16 and I want to leave. We have a 3 month old baby girl and he doesn't help with her even after I got out of the hospital... He smokes weed every day, and I'd have nothing against it if it was legal and couldn't get my baby taken... But he's on probation, doesn't try to spend time with her or me, is always playing video games. Gets mad and tells me to stop complaining about being tired bc he works and I don't.. he didn't use to be like this but he doesn't care if he goes to jail and leaves me and my daughter without any support... I want to leave and get a divorce bc my daughter deserves better, I do too... He stopped caring once he found out we were having a girl and not a boy at my 20 wk scan... I just really need to know if I'm justified in leaving bc it feels wrong bc he's my husband but in the past I'd leave if a man treated me like this... I just want some reassurance I guess... Battling PPD and anxiety and dealing with him is just emotionally draining....

Is this the type of life you want for you and your child?

No because my daughter deserves better.. I just feel like I'm over reacting because that's how he makes me feel. My family doesn't think I should give up on the marriage but he won't change. He told me he won't

It's on you to make the decision.

Have you tried counseling? For both of you? Is he willing to get help? If not I'd also think about what is best for my child.

Do what you feel is best for you & your daughter,
Doesn't sound like he is interested in being a father or a husband.
Best of luck :)

Why did you have a baby with this loser?

Despite some states allowing weed, it is still an introduction to drugs and can lead to heavier drug use. Besides it impairs a person when they are using it. It is time to move on with your life, making the best life you can for your daughter.
