due to many health reasons I don't work outside the home.
(side note before I'm asked: I am a mom in the sense that my babies are all angel babies and looking into being a foster mom, this all brought me here)
anyway, this obviously gives me more free time then my husband has. So on occasion I get chances to go places and do things that he isn't available for.
It's not that often, things like my reunion, the occasional chance to go somewhere for a weekend with a friend, etc.
I've been told from a medical standpoint that I need to have more of a social life and enjoy more recreation.
My husband and I are having some troubles because he gets caught up in the whole 'it's not fair' sort of thing. Meaning I can go, and he can't because he works outside the home and I don't.
I totally understand his viewpoint, but let's face it life isn't fair. It's also not fair that I have these medical challenges either.
I certainly don't tell him he can't do fun things, I in fact wanted to try and go to see his parents for thanksgiving, but he didn't want to spend the time and money. We aren't rich, but we can afford these things occasionally.
It's like he doesn't want to go and do things fun, so I shouldn't either.
So there's a up and coming fun thing where he could probably go as well, but he's taking the attitude
'I don't want to go, so you shouldn't either.'
