does your hubby or SO tell you that you complain too much? adult content

my hubby says whenever i ask him to do something around the house all i am doing is bitching, no matter how i ask him. does yours do that to you? i stopped asking him to do stuff bc it seems like it's always a fight but i feel stressed out bc i feel like i am doing so much now. UGH! damned if i do, damned if i don't.

  • No, there were times where I was being bitchy but now I just say it, he does it, no clash

  • No my dh doesn't tellme that he just does what I ask if he thinks that he never says so. He always tells me I need to tell himwhat needs done.
    Sorry yours is being such a jerk about it

  • no. i dont complain about much, and if i do it's something we agree sucks. i dont usually have to ask him to do things either, he just does them. and if things dont get done he doesnt really care, so i dont stress about it.

  • He used to until we put our house up for sale. It was great, toilet seat always down, he picked up after himself and all those little repairs I'd been after him to do...all done. The bad thing about it is that after we moved to our new home he had this OCD side to his personality I never knew existed. Sure it was great that he now cared about how the house looked, but if I wanted to take a break for a day...couldn't do it without HIM bitching! Like you said, damned if you do, damned if you don't!

  • yes my husband has told me that.

  • Wow, you let him off easy. He's say that so that you don't ask him to do stuff.
    Asking him to do stuff isn't bitching. It's the "You never do stuff" or "How come you only do half of the job?" that comes after (or before) that is the bitchy part. Asking someone to do something is asking for help and he knows that. He's just trying to get out of it and you let him right off the hook. Tell him to grow a pair and do what is asked and you wouldn't have to bitch about it. Haha

  • No, mine never does. Of course he is only home one day a week and gets home at 10 every other night, so there isn't much for him to do. He is really awesome about jumping in and helping, even when I don't ask him to do anything.  I'm sorry that yours does that.  It seems to me that he doesn't want to help out.

  • No he doesn't. Maybe you come across like you are nagging.
