My husband and I have had our bouts of not getting along lately. I have asked a member of my family and a friend of mine both for advice and both of them said basically the same thing, they said I need to make him feel wanted and needed and let him know that I put his needs first and love him and put him ahead of the kids. I just do not agree with this.
Your children need you. Your husband is a grown man, capable of making his meals, doing his laundry, taking care of and protecting himself. Children are not capable of all of that especially young children.
And yes, I do understand that one day it will be just my husband and I and the kids will have their own lives, but even then, they are my blood relatives I will love them forever and care for them even after they leave our home because they are my children. Even if your kids hate you for some reason they are still your children and your blood you can't undo it, If you and your husband don't get along or if he finds someone younger and prettier he can file for divorce and leave and be out of your life, you don't have to deal with him again, so to me kids are permanently yours and a husband can be permanently yours but it's not a guarantee.
Am I wrong or are they wrong??

I will say that the other way of thinking seems to be part of the old fashioned "male dominant" way of thinking. That is now being reborn so to speak with the "proverbs wives" movement (scary stuff).
