you can't trust to bathe or cook dinner for or to even watch the kids so you can go shopping or out with family or friends?
So many times (way to many to count) I see so many posts and or answers from women who cannot (or will not) trust the the father of their children, to actually look after the children. Why would you #1 have a child with a man like that and #2 stay with a man like that??? Or for that matter a man who refuses to work (not due to illness or physical disability)
I work with a gal whose SO will not work, she can't/won't leave the kids with him, he treats her awful and she just takes it...???? Yes some of it is self esteem ...but what are you teaching your kids?? I want to give my kids a good if not great example of a loving, caring, united couple...not one that bickers and fights and is one sided. I am not bashing ...I am just wondering....and to be honest I guess I am also hoping some one with think their relationship thru and make a change for the better for their kids.
Kids need BOTH parents, whenever possible to be involved in their lives.
Not trying to piss anyone off ...I just think our kids deserve the best!....don't you????
And yes I have been there!! and done that!! I was miserable and I knew I deserved better, it didn't matter that he thought I didn't. I left. It was hard but I am much better off and happy

For me it's not a matter of trusting my husband with my children, it's me realizing that a man who puts in 60-80 hours a week at work to support our family deserves some down time at home. He should not be expected to cook, clean or take care of the kids as soon as he comes home. Now in the case of your friend, if I had a husband who would not work, there would be no staying with him (barring something like disability where he is unable to work). I will not support a man, if I have to do it all, I will do it alone.
