My DH works hard all week. I get that. But last night he went to a friend's to hang out & ended up spending the night. Good choice not to drink & drive, but he came home & slept most of the day. He did absolutely nothing around the house or with the kids. Now tonight he's off to a BBQ & won't be home til who knows when. He's planning to go into work for a while tomorrow, so we pretty much won't see him all weekend. I can't imagine being away for most of the weekend, not pitching in around the house or with the kids. It just wouldn't happen. It's not fair to me that he gets to be so carefree while I'm home holding down the fort. Does your DH/SO ever pull this crap? How do you feel about it? How do you handle it?

I don't know, I think I just have a different philosophy than you. My DH will have to be away sometimes for work. That's just the nature of what he does. I run things at home. He has a pretty demanding job and the responsibility of earning money to keep our household running smooth. Sometimes when he comes home he is tired and takes a nap. Does it bother me, yeah, I guess it kind of does. But I understand why he is tired. He does make an effort to help when I need and ask for it though. My kids are a little older (8 & 10), so it's not like I have diapers and stuff to deal with. But even then I just took my lumps just like he did. Life is hard at times.
If he is consistently looking to spend time away from your family I think that would really bother me though.
