Is your husband a couch potato?

I just want to get other women opinions. I'm not here to harp on hubby or put him down I just want to know how many other women go through this and how bad. My hubby is great, hard worker good dad and love him dearly I just think he spends too much time in front of the tv either watching it or playing video games. I know its an outlet for him to do this I just think spending all day in front of tv is unproductive and a bad example for the kids. I work from home plus do all else so no time for tv. I wish he had a hobby, worked out or something. Does anyone else go through this? how bad. No bashing please.

  • Yes he is... Though starting this week he only gets one day off until the new year so... Guess he will be taking a hiatus from his games and shows!

  • Yes and I care a lot. I worked my ass off for 2 years while he sat home on his. I still had to do all the cleaning and had no time to myself. I am bitter about it.

  • No, he woks 50 hours a week and does all the "man chores "around the house, but never lays on the couch. I am the couch potato, but I also work full time and I an pregnant.

  • He works his butt off for us and when I plan a family activity he is happy to come along. He is fully entitled to play video games as much as he likes. He actually does have an outdoor hobby. He loves to golf, frisbee & regular golf. But since he had a bad cycle accident in April he isn't able to be very active right now.
