He dosen't contribute to the house much, cleaning, occasionally, with the kids very little and financially (after he spends his money there's really nothing left to contribute). Over the last year or 2 that I've known them she has talked to me about leaving him several times. The things that he says/does and expects of her and the kids would be in my opinion justified in leaving him. Now I'm not suggesting that she does leave him and I never have. I've been a listening ear and supportive and such but it's getting old. I have pointed out to her that she has said this before and never leaves him. He will get the picture when things get to her breaking point and he'll change for a short while but is then back to his old ways. He's not changing it's the same things again and again. I'm sure someone out there has a friend like this and what do you do/say to this person?
I'm at a loss, she would be no worse off without him. I know this beacuse she lived with him working in another city and only coming home on weekends and she was doing just fine, even better. Those were her words. I just don't know what to say to her anymore. It's gettting frustrating hearing it over and over again. Will this pattern ever change for them?
