  • Hey dont feel so let down... speak to ur hubby abt how u feel and that there is still more to this relationship even after having kids... dont complain just talk it out.. remember men dont like to be nagged... see what he has to say on it... and concentrate more on ur self and kids... get a new hair cut done... look good and feel good factor .... do things taht u enjoy doing... come on cheer up...

  • The longer you allow your hubs to treat you like this the longer you will be miserable in your lif; he ignores you, doesn't help, and doesn't appreciate you which are all negatives in this relationship. What are some of the positives? What do you like about the relationship?

  • um i have talked to him about it. all he says is he has to a lot on him mind but he wont tell me what. he is a drill sergeant and to take him to work i would have to take him a 4 in the morning. its not worth it to me. the kids get grumpy and hateful. i just feel like i am about to lose it. and he just doesnt care :(

  • My SO is military too and it drives me nuts how he acts like he doesn't care about anything and walks away when I try to talk to him about stuff. I have to send a short and concise message to him telling him exactly what I need. Have you tried doing a search here on CM for other moms in your area for a play date or anything to make friends and get out?
