As much as I love my boyfriend, and what a great dad he is to our 3 month old daughter, he is THE MOST insenstive man I have ever met (besides my father). I feel like he holds it against me because he is working and I am not. Most days are really good, but then when he comes home in a mood, I cant hardley take it. I need a break too!! I dont know what to do.
I use to feel this way too...and I would feel bad if the house wasnt real clean of if I wanted him to watch the baby so I could shower or poop. LOL
They really dont know how hard it is to be home all day with a baby.
I never really got my dh to understand...we just made it through somehow...
Sorry I dont have any real advice...just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I went through this very same thing.

Your boyfriend is taking advantage of your financial dependency. He may be abusive because he knows that you do not have the financial resources to get out, especially with a baby. My ex husband became abusive because of this reason. I tell my own daughters to be financially independent before they enter a relationship because of this reason. If a man becomes abusive they will have the financial resources to get out. Wish you the best.
He would never be abuseive. We love eachother deeply, and have a "normal" relationship. Its just I feel unappreciated sometimes I think because he doesnt understand what a freaking JOB it is to be up with her all night and care for her all day!
