  • Is he smoking crack? LOL If you work full time outside the home he needs to do some of the work to. Otherwise stay at home and dont work if he wants you to do it all.

  • That is impossible! I used to be in that situation but now I am a stay at home mom and depending on the kids act during the day it is still hard to get everything done. With you working he should help out some. We got into a routine, which we still do, is when dh gets home he plays with the kids while I get dinner, do dishes and basically clean the kitchen. It is so helpful that the kids aren't underfoot for awhile.

  • My husband expects me to do an awful lot. If I let him get away with it, he would. I don't let him get away with it though. We meet somewhere in the middle. Either he is trying to push you away or he is just really selfish and maybe can't see how impossible he's being. Have you ever told him this is too much for you to do? Have you ever told him he has to help out more then this? Being religous, divorce is scary for me, but I do believe in seperating and I would do it in a heartbeat in a situation like yours. That's only if he wouldn't listen, though. That's only if he wouldn't take you seriously. Some men don't start taking us women seriously untill we walk out that door.

  • If you have to work all day and he does to, what chores is he going to help you with once he comes home? "What's good for the goose is good for the gander".
    When you see him sit, you sit. When he kicks off his shoes, you do the same. Remind him marriage and parenthood are a partnership. DO NOT let him try to tell you he makes more money either; that doesn't mean he works harder.

  • I am now a stay at home mom and my hubby works 6 days a week. I do laundry and house hold chores and watch the kids 6 days a week. During the week we take turns cooking dinner. But on Sundays he keeps the house straightened, takes care of the kids, cooks all three meals, and best of all he lets me sleep in. Was not always like this though, took awhile to get it through his thick skull that I need as much freedom as him.
