You need to talk to your husband and tell him that you need him and want to spend that day with him. Men are clueless sometimes and we women sometimes think they should see what is obvious for everyone else. Just sit him down in a calm and loving manner and tell him what is in your heart. Good luck!hugs

Kick the bf out. Or talk to your dh and tell him how you feel. He may not be picking up on how you feel unless your have been married for like many years.

I have been there... we didn't live with his best friend but the guy ended up being called "twat boy" by me because he did everything in his power to undermine our relationship and I swear he wanted my ex to be with him.  We ultimately divorced in part, due to this.

Talk to him and if that doesn't help then there are some deeper issues that need to be addressed.

I would love to kick him out lol. But right now financially I cant afford for him to move out. But he really is annoying. You would think he would get a clue and get out but he doesn't. I ended up staying up later than usual for nothing. Grrrr

If your husband still wants to act like a high school kid then he isn't ready for marriage

EXACTLY........what my SO told me. It took me lots of tears and frustrations to realize men are obvious and we pretty much have to spell it out for them. Now what the men do with the information is totally on them.

Yea it looks like I will be having another talk with him about it. It's frustrating that I have to say something though
