I am pregnant and I work full time. My husband is laid off and has been for 4 months now. I feel like he should keep the house clean and cook dinner for us since i work until 7pm. I also think he should remember to take the trash out and remember to fill out his own unemployment. He never remembers. All he does is sit at home and play video games and play with our 4 year old son. Am I being a bitch or do i have a right to be pissed?

Some people need a list to help them remember what their chores are.  Make a list, hand it to him, tell him these are now his responsibilities until he gets a job.  Don't give in.

He acts like I don't have a right to be mad

Yes, you absolutely have the right to be mad. I'd probably flip my shit.

Oh I'm not giving in. It's sad that a 29 year old man doesn't know what he should be doing.

I'm trying to hold myself together because he will say I'm crazy when I'm pregnant and I don't feel like listening to that crap.

A agree with that completely.
What household responsibilities did he have when he was working?
