Would a husband ever give an ultimatum like this to his wife? Would the wife ever choose an animal over her husband? Wait until you hear this.
Liz Haslam was given an ultimatum from her husband, Mike, who grew tired of the growing dog situation in the house. At last count, there were 30 dogs that she was caring for. Now in the case of the marriage vows, you know the part that says “for better and for worse,” many would have thought Mike doesn’t have a leg to stand on but in this case, he was done.
Twenty-five years of marriage is down the drain, and this was so sensitive to Mike that he hasn’t talked to Liz over the last 18 months. Now that’s some serious anger.
Haslam chose her numerous canines — and told Mike to leave. “I haven’t seen or heard from him since. I thought after 25 years, he should know giving up the dogs was not what my intentions were,” she told Express.co.uk.
Haslam was born into an animal-obsessed family. Her mother bred West Highland terriers and her father ran an animal food company.
Since letting her husband leave 18 months ago, Haslam has not spoken to Mike, even though the former couple has a 22-year-old son. She has expanded the number of dogs she is taking in and has also offered shelter to a homeless man.
“I don’t sit down till 11:30 at night so you can’t just go on holiday. And I can’t turn around and say I am not going to do it any more, it is my responsibility, I took the dogs in I can’t just stop,” Haslam said.
Unfortunately, she will have to take a break from rescuing dogs for now: The animal rescuer says her landlord has given her an eviction notice and she now has to find a new home for herself and the growing number of rescue dogs she is caring for.
After all that fuss, she is being evicted from her home. It looks like Mike saw this coming down the road and tried to warn her but she wasn’t listening. Do you think you would give your spouse that type of decision to make? Would you decide to stay with your spouse?
Do you think she was wrong for choosing the dogs? Do you think Mike was wrong from giving her the ultimatum? SHARE your responses below in the comment section.
