Of damn double standards!!! Sometimes my husband treats me like a child. I can't get a job that requires working any time during the weekends because that's "our" time(he works mon-fri and im currently a sahm) but he can go play golf with his friend on the weekends. And he justifies it by saying I have a choice not to work weekends. He doesn't have a choice but to play golf with his friend on the weekends because his friend works out of town during the week. Wtf!?!?!

So you have to ask permission? You're allowing him to treat you like a child.

I certainly didn't ask for permission. He straight up told me no weekends. An I fought back but he made me feel so small when he said "so working on the weekends is more important than spending time with your family. You have the choice not to work weekends" ugh. Manipulative maybe??

If you work weekends who will watch the kids while he golfs? This all about him and nothing to do with family time. He does not want to be stuck watching the kids IMO.

I was thinking the same darn thing!! He took the focus off "weekend time is our time" and made it about me having a choice and him not having a choice.

Just tell him you're going to put the same amount of time and energy into your relationship that he does, and go get yourself that job.

Now the question is ...what are you going to do about it? Is he asking you to find a job or are you looking to get you out of the house?

I'm wanting to go back to work in the fall to pay for private school for our son. I don't know what to do about it honestly...I try and be firm and he makes me feel so inferior.
