lazy husband

what do you do when your 22 year old husband all of a sudden starts acting like he's a 22 year old bachelor with no family? lately all he wants to do when he gets home and on his days off is sit and watch tv or play video or computer games. he has no interest in me unless its sex or our son. he wont even get up to get him something to drink. i'm at my wits end. he wasn't always like this

  • i'd leave him, see if he that's what he wants. if it is then you're better off anyway bc he won't change till he's ready.

  • Let him starve. Quit doing his laundry. Don't do anything for him! Make him get up and do it himself! You have to crack down on him. Be mean!

  • Has anything big happened recently in your lives or his work life? Are there things he usually likes that he doesn't seem to like anymore? Is he avoiding friends he usually talks to?
    If this is a recent, sudden development, give him the benefit of the doubt. He could be withdrawing from depression or anxiety. Talk to him before you try doing anything else, please. See if something's bothering him. Try to be nonconfrontational about it, making him defensive is only going to make it worse if he's having issues.
