This is embarrassing but I need your advice.
We’ve been married for 7 months. A month ago I started a new job that I enjoy more but is pretty long hours. I want to be able to focus on this job and I want to relax after work.
Recently my husband is complaining about my not cooking enough for him, doesn’t care about his needs, etc. I’ve heard these complaints before but it’s been a lot more these days, he thinks I don’t do anything now and I’m lazy.
Ok, I admit I can be slack sometimes and I haven’t been cooking so often recently but, I keep our place relatively clean and I do laundry.
Yesterday he blew up that I don’t cook enough, he wants his wife cook for him etc. Ok, I understand the feeling but I want someone to cook for me too? I have a full time job that’s pretty demanding. He also said that his mom worked but still cooked for her children.
I don’t even eat what I make for him anyway. He wants a lot of something I don’t really eat. So when I cook a bunch it’s for him, and I make something more healthy for myself that’s cheap.
If he’s gonna eat whatever I make, great. But that’s not the case.
I feel like if he wants something he likes to eat, he can make that himself, he’s an adult. And his mom worked and cooked? well of course she cooked for her children.
When he started a new job I didn’t complain that I took up more stuff arond the house but he can’t be supportive for me?
It’s not like he enjoys a house-wife.
I am so annoyed and I can’t eye to eye so I need your advice.
I don’t even want to talk to him right now.
