    I asked him to do light yard work like raking

    leaves at our house. But he won't - that's my job. I asked him to fix things that break around the house. But that's my job. I've learned a lot about drywall. I asked him to put away the holiday decorations he insisted on hauling out. But he wouldn't - that's my job. I...

    I am married to a sweet,

    sensitive, loyal man who cannot follow through with what he says. We talked about kids when we fist started dating. I told him when we first met that I can't have kids, so I was planning on adopting. I made sure that's what he wanted too. He said over and over how much he...

    My husband needed pants hemmed; I apologized

    and said work is busy right now, I'm not going to have time to tailor his pants for the next few weeks. He nodded and said he'd call a tailor. Then he almost cried - "Would you help me find a tailor? I don't even know how to start looking." Ugh. Fine. I'll either find a...

    we just had twins and anytime he is asked to

    work late he does. I've told him I feel like I'm doing more and am exhausted and he says I have to put in the work to move up. I understand cause I work too but geez!

    I've been deep-cleaning the house,

    steaming carpets, etc - but first I've been moving my husband's dirty shorts from the living room, his shoes from the stairs, his belt from the kitchen (where he inexplicably keeps it), his mail from the sideboard, table and recliner chair, his dirty dishes from the end tables...

    He insisted on coming with me to my office

    Christmas party, so I skipped it rather than go with him.

    Yesterday the power cut off

    while I home, doing chores on my day off. No biggie, I figured my husband had left the bill unpaid again. The utilities are one of the bills that we decided are "his" to pay, but sometimes the power or cable/internet company shuts off our service due to an outstanding balance...

    He's accosting a pizza-place worker over the

    phone right now because his online order didn't process correctly. I'm ashamed; he's being so rude! We had lunch together earlier today and his coworker told me how lucky I am to have a husband who cooks for me so regularly. This was news to me - I wasn't aware my husband...

    It's Time To Change

     I close my eyes, and imagine a life that is not my own- I wish my husband would get a clue.  I work so hard raising these kids and trying to be a good mother to them.  He makes me worry about everything. I keep the house clean, I make the dinner, lunch, bfast...

    He had a breakdown over his job again.

    He had three issues at work and decided to bring up one of them to his boss. His boss fixed the one issue and asked if my husband was happy; my husband lied and said yes. Then my husband promptly called me and took up my entire dinner break during work to cry and complain...
