Ladies how do you deal or cope with the love of your life not being able to accept that he is no longer your #1 because you now have a helpless little life that depends on you 100%?
DH and I have been married for 7 years and recently at the age of 27 and 29 welcomed our first child 3 months ago.. everything has gone down hill! Dh has now started going back to the bar, being lost in video games, chat rooms and has a million excuses why he can't or won't help around the house or why he has to go "help" so and so with this or that.
Yes, before our daughter was born we were very active, we went out, we would visit the local dance club and people watch, we did things with no plan or reason.. but you can't just drop everything after a baby, you need a plan for what you will be doing with your child, whether it be a babysitter or just a short night out.. being a parent you can't stay out until 3am and expect to function 100% in the morning to take care of a child!
How can I help him, I don't want a divorce and I have suggested he talk to someone about his issues but he refuses. Our weekend away did little because although the weekend was great, he fell back into the same pattern as soon as we brought our daughter home. I love my husband and have somehow managed to keep our sex life as active as before our daughter was born but I need help before this wrecks our marriage!
