Ok Ladies – married for almost 3 months, been together on and off since 11th grade (almost 10 years). We have 2 small children… and I feel like I’m on a boat all by myself. I cook alone, clean alone, wait on him hand and foot, breakfast and dinner served to him in bed, take care of the kids ALONE, and work full time. We barley speak to each other, he just got laid off right after the wedding… I feel like mom/dad/husband/wife all rolled up in one! what happened to the honeymoon stage? It wasn’t always like this. HELLLPPPP!!

why is he eating dinner in bed instead of with the family? why are you waiting on him hand and foot? does he work like 14 hour days or something? does he travel extensively for work?
if you want to change the situation, you’ll have to change your actions. i used to do ALL the cleaning around my house – everything. Then i stopped doing the things i wanted help with. i asked initally, and i started to feel like i was badgering him, so i stopped asking. so i stopped asking and then i stopped doing. now, hubs mops the floors, wipes off the tables, takes out the garbage, etc… hell, he is even cooking once in a while. i had to stop waiting on him to realize himself that he should be doing more around the house. instead, i told him exactly what i w anted and stopped doing all the work myself. life and our relationship has improved 100%.
