My DH and I are 37 with a 7 year old and 20 month old. He takes zero responsibility for either child. Our oldest is autistic, and the care for a toddler and a 24/7 son is exhausting. He has 7 days a month off (consecutively) and my house looks like a war zone when he goes back to work. I've complained, let things stay messy and undone but nothing has worked. He says he understands and is going to help, but I'm still waiting! He will help if I ask for every little thing (run bath, give bath, help with homework, cook supper). But he does things in his own time and usually not fast enough for me! So my feelings are if I have to ask for every little thing, I might as well do it myself. Perhaps if you tell your DH how you feel he will step up on his own. Good luck.
