The way they phrased it as something the husband did makes me suspect OP didn't know. Perhaps the vent was behind furniture where it was hard to see. In a small or oddly laid out room one might squeeze into, say, the gap between a couch & a wall, to gain access to a part of the tree, or put a recliner or something else that had been near the hole, into storage to free up space for a gathering. Or she did know but couldn't do anything about it because he's a bully & INSISTED the grate be left out. Months later OP has forgotten about the hole, or just gets distracted for a moment, steps in the hole. I am a big fan of due dilligence, and yeah, people shouldn't have holes in their floors. But we don't have enough info to conclude that OP was negligent.
Your husband is an idiot. There are lots of different grates you can get that increases airflow without leaving an open hole in your floor.
Well, that's just grate! Ain't it?
