Does your husband/partner support you?

Does your partner support you in all of the decisions that you make? Does he help you to cook, clean, take care of the kids? What makes your partner good at being supportive or what can he do to be more supportive?

  • My dh is very supportive in everything that i do or need or decide =) When i wanted to do the sahm thing with our 2nd dd, he was all for it.. Although he works, he comes home and helps with the cooking, taking out trash, taking care and entertaining the kids, and even decorating! I think that he is such a good support for me because he actually listens to me and my concerns. This weekend, i was in desperate need of sleep (insomnia is getting the best of me). I fell asleep at 5 am when my dd was just about waking up. He took her and my older daughter downstairs, made breakfast, did the dishes and did some house work. I slept for a good 6 hours! He does things that surprise me, yet its how he is as a husband (so its not that surprising)..Hes a good supportive husband bc he makes sure our family is happy and stress free =)

  • my husband is very supportive in most everything in our house and with me. he helps out a lot around the house. sometimes he can be stubborn and not think things through and we struggle but most of the time he comes around. the only thing i can think of that he was firm on was the right choice in the end. so it worked out. only thing i would change is that he had more money or better job but were working on that.

  • My hubby has been totally supportive. We met 2 years ago, and 1 month after we started dating I got pregnant. Now, he could have up and left, but he didnt. He stayed at my side and supported me through my pregnancy. I had a c-section and he supported me through everything. He helped me to the bathroom when I couldn't walk because the pain, and when we brought our daughter home he got up in the night to get her, even though he had to get up early for work. He cooks, cleans, and helps with our 2 kids. Now that he works 12 hours, I do the housework and clean, but he still offers to help or rub my feet. He is amazing.

  • Same here. Financially yes, but everything else I do on my own. It can be very overwhelming at times. Sometimes I feel like I'm obligated to do more but then there are other times when I feel he should. It's a constant battle I fight on my own.

  • Financially he supports the household! He cooks, does laundry does the grocery shopping! I clean the house!

  • He helps me if I ask him to help, but I do take on a bulk of the household/ childcare responsibility. His job is to bring home money.

    Answer by lowencope at 9:30 PM on Oct. 4, 2010

  • Financially yep, he helps with our child too... He takes him when I'm stressed to the max. As for the house, he'll help out in other ways, He'll take our son out for the day so I can turn up the music & clean. Im OCPD So things have to be done just right. He'll wash the dishes or something like that But normally I HAVE to do most of it. Because If I don't It will drive me insane.
