how many spin offs do we really need?
another? ..................... eh.
my dad was a workaholic growing up.
it was hard on my mom come evenings, but I don't think she minds now that she has a million dollar beach house on the bay to spend her summers in..
Quoting anyotherday:how many spin offs do we really need?
I get that it can be hard if your partner is working all the time. But seriously to divorce over it?
My husband has always been a workaholic. It used to bother me a lot, but after 23 years, I'm good with it. I've never had a problem when the kids were young, just packing up and taking them on a road trip or something like that. Waiting for him would bother me. Basically, he's a big boy, and he can choose whether or not to come along with us.
And now the kids are older (late teens/adults) so I can go do whatever I feel like doing. And he and I take "long weekends" without the kids - and I've given up being upset that he's still checking mail on his phone and things like that.
Oh, and he just got a big promotion (works for a very large multi-national company). So now the bonuses will be equal to a years pay, instead of 2 months pay. Plus profit sharing (and this company makes a LOT of money). He grew up poor in a very dysfuctional family, and the money is important to him. No big deal to me. I'm a big girl, and can handle things on my own.
