My home life sux because our house is tiny and my husband sits on his ass all night staring at the TV, drinking beer, ignoring our son and if I don't talk to my husband then he gets pissy. He is shut down and defensive if I dare bring up anything.
So while my 5 yr old dances,jumps,spins, gets crazy because he is starving for his dads attention DH just stares at the TV.
We don't do crap as a family and don't eat together. I worry that my son will grow up without table manners because the coffee table is the table.
I cannot talk to my husband about any of my feelings because he gets so flippin' mad. Everything has to be his way. He won't even eat supper if he doesn't like it. He is 50 and theres no changing him and I can't leave or he will make me leave the boy behind.He's never cared for our son why would he start now...It's all about the control....so hows your family life?

I am sorry for your situation. He can't make you do anything. If you want to leave talk to your family and make a plan. Then go to court. To answer your question when my hubby is here. He plays with the girls for a little bit then makes dinner (he is picky so he cooks). While I clean it up he plays with the girls. Then he puts our oldest to bed, while I do the youngest. Then we have our time for 2 hours till he goes to bed. He currently is deployed so he calls and talks to the girls a few times a week and once a week they talk via the computer. They send care packages back and fourth.
