  • no...if anything, i'm jealous that he goes to work, and i'm stuck at home, cleaning/chauffeuring/etc.

  • my partner resents me and thinks that staying at home is easy! I would like to work part time but childcare is far to expensive and my partner works long hours. so i don't see why he always uses it against me!

  • ~*Nope*~... he does feel kind of bad when he misses a "first"... but since he's been their greatest teacher, like he taught them to first crawl, he got them to take their first steps, and continues to build life long bonds... it isn't that huge of a deal.

  • He was a little jealous for a while, but then got laid off last year because of the economy and went on unemployment. He couldn't WAIT to go back to work!!!! He tells me everyday how great I am doing with the kids and the house. A few weeks of Mr. Mom and seeing how the house really looks while he is gone got him to change his 'tude!!!

  • no my husband loves and enjoys working and supporting us and gives me tons of credit for taking care of our child cause i can do it and have more patience then he does... but right now my husband is out of work so we both get to raise our son till things pick up again.

  • Is he jealous that I get to stay home and play with the kids? Very. Does he take it out on me? No, he wouldn't have it any other way.
