Husband eats daughter's birthday candy, wife explodes 😡🍬

Lockdown has led to many challenges, and for this Reddit user, it's her husband's sweet tooth that caused a huge argument in their household. The couple has different parenting styles, and the husband is known for always saying 'no' to their children's requests for snacks or toys. However, when the wife bought their daughter two boxes of her favorite candy for her birthday, the husband couldn't resist and ate a significant portion of it. The wife was furious and accused her husband of being a thief who doesn't like seeing their kids happy. She even left the house with their kids to cool down and bought more candy for her daughter. The husband, on the other hand, thinks that they are making a big deal over candy. Will this candy crisis ruin their marriage? Read on to find out what Redditors think and share your opinion.
