  • Yep my DB has been the same way... I have been made to feel lonley quite a bit since my pregnancy with my twins. I was stuck at home a lot durring the pregnancy and his excuse was "I gotta go have a life" which he did until the girls were about 8 months and I said things need to change. I still feel lonley quite a bit but we are working on things. You will survive.. just have a "come to jesus" talk with the man and tell him how it is

  • It sounds like your hubby needs a wake-up call - tell him that you need help with the children - they are half his, so half the responsiblity belongs to him. You cannot continue to be a single parent. If he refuses to help out, tell him that you are going to hire a nanny.

  • I can't believe so many men are like this.. my husband was / is so hands on with our son.. granted we only have 1 and I know I've taken on most of the responsibilities but those are still my own issues lol!! you NEED to make him step up or resentment will step in.. he may earn the paycheck but you both are working and YOU are tired too, what gives him the right to sit and watch tv with 2 crying babies?? you BOTH need unwind time. I think a very good sit down talk needs to happen
