Blessed, But Soooo Stressed!

My husband and I have been married for six years. We have been together since high school. We have had several ups and downs in our relationship prior to our marriage. One resulting in me concieving a child outside of our relationship. We got married four months after I had my second child (the one that is not his). For a while everything was going well.
We decided to combined our bank accounts.Thats when he started the over excessive spending putting us in a lot of debt. After that he lost his job making 30,000 dollars a year and had to take a job paying 20,000 dollars a year. This placed the financial obligations of our household solely on me. It is four years later and he is still working the same job. Not only that but he works from 2p.m. until 10 p.m at night. When he comes home he watches t.v. and go to bed. Me and our three children goes to work in the morning and that leaves him with the rest of his day to himself. I thought he would clean up, cook, or do something while hes at home to help me out some. After ive worked all day and I have to take care of my own children in the afternoons im so tired. Im also responsible for making sure that the bills get paid. He does nothing all day but sleep and work on a job where he sits on his behind all day. I fuss and ask for help. He may help out one day and feel like I have to thank him for doing so, then it goes back to the same old stuff. Im trying to make my marriage work, but im tired of getting short changed in my relationship.
