My husband works for a salary paying job. That means no matter how long he works...he doesn't make anymore. He is usually leaves the office hours after his co-workers have gone home. I am happy he found a job he loves...but what about his family? Together we have an autistic toddler. It would be nice for our son to see him during the weekdays. But, he never does. DH leaves before our son wakes up and doesn't come home until long after his bed time. Every time I bring it up he says I should be happy he likes his job. What can I do??!!

You need to tell him straight up that he needs to start being home with you guys more often, that you are glad he loves his job and are very happy for him, HOWEVER he has a family that needs him too. Its very important he has time with his son especially now when he is young he is going to end up missing out on so much because he is choosing work over spending time w/ his loved ones. I had a similar issue w/ my dh, the only difference is that his job does depend on how much he works, since his job is all commission its like he has to be out there hustling ALL the time, but since telling him how important it is he be w/ me and our son he makes an effort to be home more often.
