Is it so bad for me to ask my husband to call and check in with me? Even if he is just out with his family? He went off today with his family and was gone longer than I expected and when I called and told him he should have checked in with me, he got an attitude. Granted, I did approach the situation with an attitude first, but I kind of just expected him to call and check in with me, especially since I'm pregnant and sick, our son is sick, and he was out longer than I was expecting him to be. His response was "I was with my family, so I didn't think it would matter how long I was out." Altogether, he was gone for 7 hours when he was supposed to "just be picking up his birthday money." He answered both times I called and I heard his family in the background, so I know he's not cheating or anything. I am just wondering if it's so bad to ask my husband to call and check in every now and then? Sorry so long!

Ok so are you upset he stayed longer? Or are you just saying he should have been more concerned about you not feeling well? It took me 25 years to train my husband. I finally told him (he travels) I need you to call me when you arrive so I know your okay. That did not work. So I tried "I can not rest until I hear your voice".. Then I just remind him " I need to hear your voice it calms me down."... So he understands this. He will call me now. The thing is he was gone a long time, he was just chilling out with his family. He was having a family time. Don't blow this out of proportion. If you nag too much he will start not answering when you call. If you just say simply (with no tude) "honey can you call me when your going to be say more than two hours late".. Use your words and just tell him I worry. Or I am feeling bad, sick, lonely--huge tires.. Make it simple for the man brain to grasp.
