Do any other women have husbands/SO who work a lot?
I've been dealing with my husband's work schedule for a long time now; I should be used to it. But, I'm not! I still feel lonely and almost like I'm not even married. He works six days a week, leaves at about 7am and gets home after 9pm. He has his own business. I feel like he loves to work and that's great. It's his livliehood and he's great at what he does. But, what about the kids and I?! When he is home, it's very hard for us to connect because of the lack of time we've spent together. Also, he hates to talk on the phone or even take a couple of minutes to connect during the day and evenings. I've already beat that issue into the ground as well.
Honestly, it makes me feel very unwanted. I really want romance and love and feel that I deserve it. But, without my man essentially in my life, I don't get my needs met. I feel like I'm a good looking woman, I'm educated, meet his and my kids' everyday needs and bend over backwards to meet him for lunch (with all of his guys) when he has a precious minute to spare. So why is this so hard?
I do other things to occupy my time so it's not like I'm just sitting at home twidling my thumbs. I work at school, hang out with friends, have playdates, take care of my home, visit with family, etc.
I've expressed my frusturation over and over throughout our relationship and it's really no use. This is the way he is and I accept him for it. I just want to be able to get over it completely.
Do any of you ladies have husbands or SO that work a ton? How do you deal with the lonlieness?
