I don't have that issue and here is my advice. Be ready to leave when he gets home, hand him dd with a list of any info he may need and tell him you are going to watch a movie to relax. If you are nervous to leave replace that with a long bubble bath and glass of wine.


Tell him If he would like to join you next time that would be wonderful

No. You married a child. Your husband is supposed to be your partner, if he isn't then your marriage is a failure. Sorry you're in that situation, but if you want to change it you have to just do it. Go, leave the house and go with your friends and don't ask permission, just go. Don't give him a choice.

Haha thats been my life for the last 6 years, BUT if I need to go somewhere, I can leave my kids with Dh at anytime. He doesnt go out unless we go together (which is rare).

No, my husband tells me I need to go out for a girls night, but I want to spend my time with him when he is actually off. I can spend time with my friends while he is at work and when the kids are in school.

 Sorry, I don't have that issue and never have.

You need to sit down and tell him what you need. If that doesn't work, hand him your daughter and walk out the door for a couple of hours.

To a certain extent, yes, but we do go out sometimes. Life is different after you have children. You have less time, more to do. It gets monotonous. I suggest that you find a way to get a babysitter and go out with him as well as, with friends. It really does make a difference. I would INSIST.
