I have been married for four and a half years. Two of those years have been awful. We fight about everything, he's very pessimistic, has a negative attitude about everything. I tried so hard to give him things to be happy about... but the house is never clean enough, the kids never listen well enough, I'm too "lenient" (even though my oldest is only 6 1/2). My mom and I have gone round after round because she's pushing for marriage counseling. It upsets me because she knows how he is. He won't even agree to go to counseling. I don't believe that it's going to make a difference anyway because he is exactly like his father. She keeps telling me, things will be better when the kids get older. All his dad's kids are out of the house, and he's still a grumpy b@stard. All my MIL does is complain about my FIL, and I don't want that to be me in 20 years. It gets worse as the each month goes by. No one wants to be around him, then he complains he has no friends. I don't want to be a single mom, but I'm just so unhappy. We've tried to talk, he blames it on work. I tell him to find a new job, he says he likes working there, but it's stressful. He gets mad at me when I go out and leave him home with the kids, but he never wants to go out anywhere with me. It just goes on and on. I don't know what else to do.Answer Question

I say that you need to do some thinking and praying,,,, you need to think about the happiness of your kids and yourself, your kids are number one in your life and your choice should have their best interest in mind, if it was me i would be out. my kids should never see that sad of a home. I hope your are ok and things work out!!
