If a wife and husband decide from the get go that she is going to be a stay at home mom, why does he later on bitch about it?? I've seen post responses etc on Cm and actually had conversations with sahm and their husbands make snide comments or complains. Saying things like "im make the money I make the rules", or all you do is stay home all day , or being a sahm isn't that hard things like that. I mean I dont understand why they get so bent out of shape if it was a joint decision.

I don't either. I feel bad a lot of days because I'm not contributing any money and some days due to a thyroid problem I'm too tired to get any housework done. But DH never complains and always tells me he understands when I can't do a lot and is glad that I get to spend a lot of time with DD. I guess maybe some husbands don't realize they'll have a problem with it until after they've made the decision?

 Weird. I make the money and DH stays home... I feel bad because sometimes I feel like he does more work than me. Actually he does.

staying home is MUCH more work. I have done that too.

Idk maybe that is the case. My dh always tell me what a great job Im doing and how he's glad I get to spend so much time with the kids. Right now my mil is here helping but thats because im on bedrest. Even with 2 kids that are 15 months and  1 13 months (adopted) he'll even take 2 days off at a time to help me incase I feel overwhelmed.
