I've been married going on 10 years and nothing is never 50/50.

More like 80/20 at best. My DH is good* at One thing making money , that's it.

Not even less then avg parenting skills.

I'm getting burned out. so how do get my husband to be more active as a father and a home owner.

ATM I do it all.

wow over 200 replies  as soon as the kids are asleep  I'll read them all.

Okay for those saying 100/100 your just not understanding.  Effort  put in to a marriage  has nothing to do with getting stuff done.

50/50 as in splitting everything that makes life run smoothly. ( BE THE TEAM PLAYER )

iI don't care if just watches while I get stuff done. "REALLY  watches them not him playing on the ipad while they run wild fu&@ing stuff up for me"

theses kids our half his genetic pool there for, half their mess is half his... that's how I feel

JUST BECAUSE I'M WORKING AT HOME DOESN'T MEAN.

I OR ANY OTHER  SHAM OR WHAM  SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE A SLAVE. 

Those why do let him blah etc... He's a grown ass man , I don't (let ) do sqwat. 

He does what he wants...

Those asked if tried talking to him. I have talked to him, at him & to point of tears. He's brick wall and doesn't see what's wrong.

When you find the answer, tell the rest of us.

Now I'll step aside for the ladies with perfect father-husbands.

Communication.
Do you both work?
If he is working all day and you are at home, I don't see how it could be 50/50.

First issue is: Marriage is NOT 50/50...it is 100/100. If both of you are not giving 100%, then you are both cheating each other.

Try talking to him first. If that doesn't work or you've already tried it, stop doing everything for him. Take care of yourself and the kids, but stop doing his laundry or cooking him food, etc. If that still doesn't work you'll have to either put up with it or tell him to gtfo. In my opinion, if a husband only wants to make the money and do nothing else he can do it elsewhere and stop adding to the mess you already have to clean up.
