I can't vent to anyone else so please just allow me some air time for a moment. I am 28 yrs old.. i am an assistant manager at my job making good money but I work 60+ hours a week. My husband and I have a 5 yr old son. My husband works m-f 7-4 and his job is not near as stressful as mine. He did have to start pitching in more with our son when i got promoted which i talked to him about before i ever applied for it.. he takes him to school and picks him up almost every day.. that is great.. the problem? THAT IS ALL HE DOES! I come home from working a 13 hour shift today and found out he called out from work because he had a sore throat.. my house is effing trashed.. dishes piled up.. trash overflowing.. hes laid up on the couch in his underwear.. my son is napping(@5pm!).. ive been on my feet for 13 hours and i sit down to take my shoes off and he has the nerve to ask what i am cooking for dinner.
He has it so easy compared to a lot of marriages.. i never nag or bitch at him.. his friends tell him what a good woman i am and he doesnt care. When i worked 40 hrs and i was off every weekend i kept my house immaculate.. now I want to puke. I do all the laundry.. cooking.. dishes.. toilet scrubbing.. while he sits his ass on the couch stuffing his face. Im just done. I want a man who appreciates the work i do and respects me enough to help. We are like roommates only hes the irresponsible one that cant help out (and hes 10 yrs older than me!).
Before everyone tells me to sit him down.. i have.. ive talked til im blue and if he does help its halfassed only to please me. Anyway.. thanks for letting me vent.. idk what i am going to do. If i leave i will have to give up my position bc I'd never be able to raise my son with my schedule the way it is.. we have no family nearby to help. :-(
