  • You have to tell him what you want. Some men can't figure it out on their own.

  • Have a calm sit down conversation with him. A conversation is not nagging. Tell him you are overwhelmed and stressed out and you need help. Do not list all the things he doesn't do, do not tell him how crappy he does things, just tell him how you feel and what you need from him.

  • Just sit him down and be honest with him. Explain your concerns and work out a plan.
