If he all of a sudden said he is working a lot. Coming home late..I would be suspicious he was doing more then just working. That's how I would feel.

I think it is totally fair for you to want your husband home with you and your kids.. but NOT fair to ignore him or hold good work ethic against him. Try talking openly to him.. if he is working late for the right reasons (to make extra money you guys need, to secure his job if there is danger of layoffs, or to prevent trouble in his office) then I think you should cut him some slack. It is hard having your hubby gone a lot but if it benefits your family, he will appreciate your support. If there is no way around him working late do cute things with the kids to make him feel appreciated.. like make "thanks daddy for working so hard for our family" cards. Do extra to support him, this probably isn't a permanent thing.. but if you ignore him and pitch fits.. its not going to entice him to come home any earlier.. he may stay later just to avoid tension at home. Just my suggestion. Hope it helps. God Bless

My husband is a workaholic also, but that is also how we got to where we are today. He does make up for it though, when it is family time he tells clients it is family time I will call you back and when it is date night we answer the phone for no one but the babysitter if she happens to call. There is give and take there and a lot of time I give more but he has provided well for his family so I cut him some slack!
