He likes being married but...

Okay what would possess a man to say this, "I like being married to you as long as I don't have to be around you?" Really? Why would you say that to your wife? I'd rather not be loved than have someone say that to me again!

  • It just means he likes the benefit of being married to you, but does not want to spend time with you. Maybe you two fight all the time, maybe your personalities are not compatible... Who knows. There are lots of factors that could alter the meaning behind this.

    But I can tell you three things. One, no one deserves to hear that. Two, you either need to decide to do marital counseling ASAP or three, file for divorce.

  • You need to tell old buddy, he canot have his cake and eat it too. If he is going to be married to you he has to be around you. So find out what he wants to do.

  • That's kinda crazy, cause my husband is always off and about and I always tell him "I married you because I WANTED to be around you, not because I wanted to be a single mom with a husband that does whatever he wants".
    Men need to get it together, seriously.

  • What a butthole! That was very rude of him to say that to you. Without knowing your situation, I'm not sure exactly what more to think of it.

  • I would stop letting him touch me. I wouldn't do anything for his benefit. No laundry, no cooking, and if he wants to go anywhere besides work, he needs to find a babysitter for your children. You do your thing....and see how he likes it!
