  • I dont think so..... but only you can know that! but my hubby is a farmer and works 24/7 and harldey see's me or his kids and I HATE IT but i cant do anything about it because if he neglects his work we dont have money, but he does need to learn how to manage his time more and it's a stuggle we have everyday cause im the only one worried about it!! your not alone and i know how hard it is!!

  • I don't know If he is cheating, but be careful. I have a friend her husband was working all the time and she later found out that he was not and he was out drinking with friends while she was at home with her brand new baby, day and night. the truth came out though. It always does.

  • My STBX is a farmer/rancher. As he put it clearly one day in a huge fight "his farm is his passion'. That's why as you read above, he is my STBX, not my husband. Yes, I appreciate him providing for his family to no end, but seeing me and his kid's maybe 2 hours a week, weekends included is not enough for me. He prob. is working. Maybe his work is his passion too. I know when we were trying marriage counceling, the councelor told us that men use work to cover up depression, anxiety, etc. Don't know if this is your husband, but good luck to you.

  • Okay, he's my ex husband, but he cares more about ANTYHING besides his kids. He's a deadbeat!

  • aww these stories make me sad. i never see my hubby except for sunday mornings, but we need the money, he works two jobs. i also see him about 1/2 an hour a day in between jobs. he's miserable not seeing his kids though. somethings not right if this doesn't make a father sad, IMO.
