Not sure what to title this, question about marrying someone very different from you.
One thing I can't seem to get over is the way we both look at life. He and his family are always saying how poor they are, how life was so hard growing up, how kids are lazy these days ( maybe they are but...), and I always feel like they look at me like I think I'm some princess or something. Ok fine, I'm a city girl living in a small town and I'll tell ya, I don't hate it, but there's still lots of city-fied things in me that I just can't get rid of. For example, whenever my husbands mom calls or comes over I feel like I have to be doing something. Now I am not lazy at all but I've never had to milk cows, or collect eggs, or plow the field at 5am, but I do know what work is. I've worked( outside the house ), my whole life until I met husband almost 6 yrs ago. It was a mutual decision for me to stay home, partly because I got pregnant when we got together, but in any event it was a joint decision.
I just feel like sometimes they never look forward to things, like vacations or events, like they think all life is is just work or the next job. Sometimes when I want to sit an watch TV I feel bad, like I should be doing something.
Can anyone relate?
