Anyone else get aggravated when there so doesn't help with house work on their days off I'm a stay at home mom so I do almost everything and that to me is fair but I still expect help on the days he's off work my goal everyday is to catch up on house work during the children's nap time so I have the rest of the day with them and my house work doesn't get ahead of me so today I asked him to do dishes while I folded clothes what's he do lays on the couch and goes to sleep (he got to sleep in today while I've been up with the kids since 6) I know he is tired but being a stay at home mother of 2 small children is just as tiring as working a full time job I don't ask him for much and it seems like no matter how many times I talk to him about this it never sinks in his head im starting to feel like I'm only here for sex, to cook, to clean and to take care of the babies he swears that he thinks men and woman are equal but he sure doesn't act like it!!!!! Ok rant over!!!

And they are his kids. He can help out when he is off work.

I work 80 hours a week, my husband is a SAHD.

I look for any and every opportunity to help my husband with the chores and Child Wrangling.

If your husband doesn't do that, he's a gigantic useless weenie.

A decent man and father helps with his kids. It doesn't matter if you're a stay at home mom. I'm sorry you're married to a shitty guy and bitter about it. Sucks.

Get ready for endless replies of how you should do everything and home and kiss his ass for even being with you, let alone bringing home a paycheck.

My unpopular opinion is everybody lives there everybody helps clean. No matter who works and stays at home or doesnt.

How mature.

Look man, how about you ask him to help when you need him to?  Like THAT VERY SECOND?
