At the risk of being slammed and I really don't care if I am, I am going to put it out there and say. If that was me in that situation and I was at breaking point along with my family being at breaking point too, I would do whatever is necessary to try and save my family. I would have tried it. No ifs or buts about it.

Re: I locked our toddler in his room every night to save my marriage
Everyone needs to stop mentioning co-sleeping/bedsharing as an alternative. If it works for you and me, lucky us... But it doesn't work for everyone!
People need to get off their high horse and realise that sometimes parents need to do things that we may consider drastic for the wellbeing of themselves and their children. It is not wrong, it's not inhumane, it is a different option they have chosen. We most certainly shouldn't be judging based on what they should/could have done, we don't know what they tried previous to locking the door.

I think the major difference is, when someone on here gives an ultimatum to their partner they are doing it because their PARTNER is behaving in a disrespectful way and the PARTNER needs to change their behaviour to save the relationship.
From what I read from the article, his wife had done nothing disrespectful to him at all. This was not her fault. She had tried everything alongside him. She was the one getting up multiple times a night, she was just as distressed and exhausted as he was. Giving her an ultimatum because of the CHILD's behaviour I find arrogant and selfish. I actually don't judge the locking the child in the room bit, I totally see why they did it, and imagine if I were that desperate I may do the same. I just hate the selfish way he approached it.

Or... instead of trying to demonise him. You can look at it that he was doing it for her own good. A LOT of parents mother in particular forget their own welfare in order to do what they think is necessary for the child. Even if that means they are wearing themselves down and going to make themselves sick. A lot of mums need a kick start from someone else to snap them out of it. Be it their husband. a doctor their mother or a friend.
