I Resent My Husband

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 669 People

    I swear nothing I do is good enough.

    he is never happy. I told him I would stay at home when I had our daughter when HE suggested it. He wasn't happy about that. He asked me to go back to work. However, everytime I've gotten a job he stays on me all the time and won't let me do my job. He starts arguments when...

    My Wife Resents Me...

    I lived far too long hoping

    for changing. Hoping he would stop lying. Hoping he would be respectful. Hoping he would acknowledge that I was a person and not just a thing that bore the titles "wife" and "mother". He would show me glimmers if hope. Just enough to keep me around. Hoping for that change that...

    Oh my..things have not been good lately.  I know the first year of marriage is supposed to be hard, but this is taking it to a whole new level.  My husband and I met and dated for a year before tying the knot.  When we were dating he was nice, and respectful and we...

    He Decieved Me

    I found out a year ago that my husband looks at gay **** on the internet.  To make things worse, he had a personal ad on one of the web sites.  He says he's not gay, just looking.  I can no longer trust him and I hate that he has embarassed me like this.

    He Is Just So Lame.

    To hear all of my husband's complaints, you'd think he's about 90 years old.  He is only 37 but everyday he seems to have some new ailment.  He has had problems with addiction which we have dealt with/are still dealing with.  I have been very supportive. ...

    Husband refuses to find a job,

    just obstinately spends all his time making mobile phone games which no one wants to pay for. He made $30 this year. He refuses to even explore other avenues (even working in McDonald's is better than nothing damnit). I have a one year old and a house coming later this year...

    I Care About Him And Don't Want Him To Hurt

    I regret saying in an earlier story, joking about how he's "up for grabs - any takers?" I know that sounds awful and I don't really wish to hurt him. I don't wish to make him out to be so awful that no one would want him. Truth be told, if he didn't have a lot of wonderful...

    He Talks To Other Women And Makes Me Feel Guilty.

    He has texted, called, emailed, and exchanged pictures with other women. He turns it into either I haven't been giving him what he needs or how dare I think so bad of him or its only an issue because I think it is. He doesn't care about me!!!

    but I do. My husband and I have been together for 8 years and married for 5 months so I feel that it's wrong for me to resent him for his ways when I've known about them for so long. I think I resent him because over the years I figured the older he got the more mature he would...

    Currently in a domestic partnership with a man

    and his bazillion kids. Not only cannot I not stand the look of him, but I really don't like his kids anymore either. He lies to me constantly and is a financial leech. I plan on being out of this relationship before summer. Life is too short.
