Divorce Or Remain Exhausted
I am a mother of 2 children from a prior marriage. My husband has 2 children from a prior marriage. We have adopted one son together. My husband and I have been married for 6 years. He has become a mean, angry, hateful, man. He drinks daily and falls asleep on the couch several times during the day. He refuses to help around the house. I do all the inside and outside chores. He is fine having me ask someone other than him for help on projects I can not complete myself. He gets angry when I ask his children to help with the chores and calls me a slave driver. He constantly is yelling at my children and our adopted son. His children from his previous marriage are the only ones that seem to make him smile. I work 2 jobs and am trying to arrainge our budget so I do not need to get a third. I have worked three jobs off and on since we have married, and always two. He thinks his 8 hours a day as a police officer is enough, he refuses overtime and extra security assignments. I feel he hates me and that he thinks I am beneath him. I think he married me to care for him and his children, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. I am exhausted and I feel cheated.
