My SO and I agreed that I get a job at nights. We need the extra money and I wanted to get out of the house for a bit. So I started work two weeks ago and have had one night off since I started. It's been crazy. I come home at around 12:30 am every night. I get up at 6 am with the kids and get DS off to school. I am so overwhelmed and SO doesn't help around the house. So I get home and have to clean. I am angry and just can not stand him right now. Vent over

Don't take this childish advice.  She's not even married.  What the hell does she know?

Quoting Sassy762:

Go on Strike

Tell him that he needs to help out and IF he doesn't then you won't be cleaning either

Quoting jillbailey26:

Talk to him about it.  Let him know that he needs to help more around the house or you'll be forced to quit.

This is why my husband and I agreed that I wont work. I know that he wouldn't get things done when he's home the way I do when I am. It would still all fall on my shoulders even if I was working too and I'm just not doing it. Just tell him that you need his help around the house now that you are working. I mean really, what else can you do?

 I went to work in August of last year because we were just getting back on our feet after a long downward spiral. We needed the money to get caught up on bills. I lasted until November of that year. It was overwhelming. I had to spend nights away from my family, and where I worked, I couldn't do it. My husband understood when I told him that I couldn't go back, there was drama that involved me and the supervisor and I wasn't going to fight her when I knew that I did nothing wrong, I just didn't want to be there.  I was pregnant as well, so I think that I got too emotional. But while I was working my husband was the most helpful guy around the house.

I would suggest talking to him and telling him that it is not fair that you have to work and do all the chores around the house. Maybe he jus doesn't recognize that you need him.

he doesnt need to help, he needs to participate in the running of the household which involves cleaning.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

Yes he does.  She's working now too, the household stuff should be split between them.

He will get up and help with whatever it is I just asked. But not keep up with helping.

Quoting jillbailey26:

Does it ever change anything, even for a short amount of time?  You could always get home one day to a messy house and tell him then that you're putting in your two week notice the next day.  

Quoting heartnhidin:

I have, he doesn't communicate back to me. He literally sits there and goes "okay yeah I know"
