 My husband works crazy hours because he is in the Navy so I can understand his work hours but after work he ALWAYS goes to the gym for 2 hours so he doesnt get home until like 7/8pm , meaning he eats dinner, showers and relaxes (watches tv). I do not get any time with him and when the weekend come he doesnt want to do anything because he's tired from his week and or he will go to play Basketball with his friends. I feel like he doesnt want to do anything with me and or our son.I've told him on numerous occasions to make up a whole day just for us because we have a sitter or that we should do things as a family and it seems to go in one ear and out the other. I dont know what to do anymore. He says that I stress myself out because I make things out to be more than they really are, but is it really a lot to ask him to want to spend time with me being that I barely see him throughout the week? I feel like the marriage is getting old too fast and I dont like it at all. I want to do what I can to make it work but I am running out of ideas.

Let him know your lonely.....write it all down in a letter and give it to him. That way he has to listen to what you have to say before he interrupts.

Being a military wife is hard, crazy hours and all. My hubby is out now but with his new job & he's going to school at night, he's very busy. But he does make some time for family. it sounds like your hubby would rather hang with his friends than you. you need to tell him that being a good husband is more than just providing for the family. he needs to be there as well. His kid will end up growing up without a father around and may resent him years later.  You two need to sit & talk about where your marriage & family is going.
