Added DiffLines:

''A Good Husband'' is a spiritual sequel to Allen's ''A Good Wife'' on [=GameJolt=]. While it appears as a cute and simple "be a good husband and do chores around the house to gain points" Unity game, ''A Good Husband'' is a horribly depressing and short game about domestic abuse.
----

!! ''A Good Husband'' contains examples of the following tropes:

*AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:You can kill your wife for being such an abusive, unfaithful bitch.]]
*TheBlank: The game's simplistic artstyle makes the husband and wife faceless.
*CameraPerspectiveSwitch: You can change the game from first-person to third-person at the press of a key. [[spoiler:The game locks into first-person mode once you pick up the gun.]]
*CrapsaccharineWorld: Yes, it may ''look'' like a cute, simple game where you go around the house doing chores for your wife, but it is ''not''.
*{{Cuckold}}: One of the flashbacks is the husband walking in on the wife having sex with his friend. This was ''three months'' before the game begins, although this can be averted by both of the endings.
*DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: ''Horribly'' averted. The verbal and emotional abuse the wife forces onto the husband is ''not'' PlayedForLaughs.
*DownerEnding: [[spoiler:The husband snaps and kills his wife and is thrown into prison.]]
*FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:While the wife does show a second of fear and bargaining, even when her husband has a loaded gun pointed at her face, that doesn't stop her from verbally abusing him.]]
*GoldenEnding: [[spoiler:You can escape the abuse by simply leaving.]]
*HateSink: Unless you're into extreme RomanticizedAbuse, it is literally impossible to ''not'' hate the wife. Every single word she says and action she does is a completely unnecessary, needlessly cruel KickTheDog.
*HeroicMime
*{{Jerkass}}: Jesus Christ, is the wife one cold-hearted bitch. Chewing her husband out for telling innocent stories to his friends, throwing out all of his prized trophies, forcing him to pay all the bills, cheating on him, and snapping at him for ''sitting down next to her as she watches TV''.
*MultipleEndings: You can either [[spoiler:go to your bedroom and get a gun to blow your wife's brains out, or simply get in your car and leave.]]
*PinkGirlBlueBoy: The husband has a blue face, the wife has a pink face.
*RageBreakingPoint: The husband quietly and submissively takes everything his wife throws at him, but by the end of the game, [[spoiler:either divorces her, or blows her brains out.]]
*ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler:You can simply get in your car and leave to escape your wife's abuse.]]
*TheSociopath: The wife might be one, only showing a sliver of remorse for her inexcusably cruel emotional abuse when [[spoiler:she has a gun to her head. And even that's just for a second, as she goes right back to the emotional abuse!]]
*TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:The wife gives one plea to her husband to put the gun down before she goes right back to chewing him out, which of course earns her a bullet to the head.]]
*YourCheatingHeart: One of the flashbacks has the husband catching the wife sleeping with another man.
