What do you and hubby fight about? -- Vent.

I'm so frustrated. My hubby and I have been fighting about repairs around the house and now we know we have to pay a plumber $500. It's a long story, but I wish he cared more about fixing stuff around the house than he does about work. He's a workaholic! We both work full-time and have an 8.5 mos old baby. I get tired and stressed too but I actually care that our bathtub has been leaking gallons a day! Married life is so frustrating sometimes!

  • Sounds like you both have different expectations of whose responsibility repairs are. If he is not interested in making minor repairs, can you just agree to call a professional in the beginning and save you both some aggravation?

  • Eh, just call a professional when something needs to be fixed. I agree with figaro, just agree to call them when the problem starts. No worries.

  • We usually fight about house chores but since I went on strike and stopped cooking dinner; he seems to be doing much better:)

  • how he loses money all the time or that he doesn't listen to me like i told him too. also he can't fix a single thing in our house and it drives me nuts. there is a long list but i have tried to see him differently and tell myself how great he is with the kids and that he really does try to be the good church man i want.
