  • My boyfriend doesn't seem like he wants to spend time with Cayden & I either..(she's 8 weeks old). He either wants to play his video game, or go out with his friends. He invites me to go hang out with him & his friends & says his Mom will watch the baby but I don't want to ask her every single weekend..she works too. So I sit at home with the baby! I need help here too :( I get lonely

  • my husbands the same way even if he's in the house. i have to either engage him in an activity with us or take a walk or do something he likes to do ... like a car show or someting like that. he doesn't mind going to the park either

  • I went throught the same thing with my husband but I can let Cece play outside we have a yard attached to the garage I made an agreement with him i let him work in there for so long a time without bothering him and he has to go for a walk with us or to the park, he got used to it and now after 3 years he suggests it on his own. I know it is hard but they adjust and you can have your family. Patience on our part seems tough but most of the time it works out.

  • I feel the same way you do. My husband works 2 jobs and comes home at 10pm. he has dinner and stays in the living room watching TV till about 12. I haven't told him exactly how I feel cause I hardly see him. On the weekends he's either working or out in the park with his friends. I feel like a single mother cause he's never around our son and I. I would also like to know how I can get him to be around us some more. By reading some of the answers I see I'm not the only one feeling like this.
