'Married to Medicine': Hobart wants Kendra to ditch her career to be full-time mom, fans say he has no respect
Fans wonder if staying home with the baby is a luxury, why isn't Hobart volunteering to be the one to do it?
Motherhood often prompts difficult conversations between new parents, especially with regards to work life. In this week's episode of 'Married to Medicine: Los Angeles', Kendra Segura and husband Hobart Leung went out on a dinner date where they had a chat about her job situation.
Kendra has been wanting to take up a permanent position but Hobart had asked her to look for only part-time opportunities for the coming six months so that their newborn baby is taken care of and attended to at all times. Kendra understands the concern but also assures him that she knows how to juggle work and home. The conversation was going okay until Hobart said that women in Kendra's position would do anything to lap up the opportunity. Hobart not being able to see that Kendra's skills are better utilized at work than at home, ticked her off. In her interview, she said she was surprised and confused that Hobart wouldn't support her.
But Kendra gave it another shot and asked what Hobart would like her to do instead. He said it would be great if she could ask her future employees if it could be a part-time position. Both are right and are not able to strike a balance between their thoughts and opinions. This has been a topic of discussion at the Segura-Leung household for a while now and unfortunately, it hasn't been resolved yet.
Meanwhile, fans cannot believe that Hobart would make Kendra feel bad about choosing a job of her choice. "Ok so Kendra got a great job and Hobart didn’t even congratulate her??? Instead, he just made her feel horrible for wanting to work and made her upset? Wow he may not be as nice as I thought #married2medla," a viewer commented, while another asked: "If staying home with the baby is a luxury, why isn't Hobart volunteering to be the one to do it? #Married2MedLA." Another fan said, "Seriously, it's clear Hobart wants Kendra to be a stay at home mother and doesn't respect her as a professional or a doctor. No me gusta. #Married2MedLA."
