  • You guys need to sit down and divide the responsibilities and lay out what each of you expects of the other person. Without communication nothing will be solved.

  • GOODLUCK HUNNEY! I can tell you it isn't easy.. He bring home the bacon and that's all he thinks he should have to do because you don't work. Well, your FTJ is cooking, cleaning and taking care of him, and maybe a child or two, NOT AN EASY TASK! Maybe if you just ask him to do little tiny things that will help you get everything done faster..

  • Be sure you are doing your fair share. Remember that he is at work, plus the commute, maybe car maintenance. Suggest that you both talk over what needs to be done both in and out of the house and divide up the duties.

  • He probably thinks since you stay at home that you get to take on all the responsibilities of the house. He probably thinks you have time to do everything including the lawn. You need to tell him what you do during the day to make him aware that it's not as easy as he thinks it is.
