  • How does he do that? I don't let my husband make me feel guilty! I feel I do enough in our house hold that I have no reason to feel guilty! There is times when I do not have a minute to sit and relax and he comes home and just sitts his butt down and watches tv so when he is going going going I will sit and see his reaction and I will say how does it feel!

  • If want to do something for myself I need him to help me by staying with the kids. First he says ok then down the road he creates this whole drama how its affecting his work. Its such BS he just doesn't want to stay with the 3 kids.

  • The only way a person can be manipulated is for her to allow herself to be. So why do you do that? Of course, he's going to continue to do it because he knows it works. You hold the keys to putting a stop to it, so why are you allowing it to continue?

  • I'm still going to do what I need to do. Its just a pain to hear him whine all the time. It feels like its apart of who he is.
