No companionship...

I don't even feel like I have a relationship, but rather a roomate. I work evenings with unpredictable days/hours and he works mornings, Monday-Friday. Everyday when he gets home from work, he does't talk to me. He just wants to sleep. On weekends before I go to work, guess what? He sleeps!!! I know he's got a job but so do I, PLUS SCHOOL! I still try to make time for him.

What do I do before I go crazy?

  • my first marriage lasted 8 years because we worked different hours and never saw eachother....
    Now with my current marriage we tried to both work and juggle our son and daycare...We both talked and agreed that until he starts school we are better off... me just staying home...even if it means being broke! what matters is the marriage and job should come in between that!
    Happiness is not about both parents working and making money...Happiness comes from inside the relationship and deciding what is best for the family.

  • I agree. I've even come close to the decision of not working because I'm always stressing on when I'll happen to have the time to study. I miss my son. :'-(
