- Wedding: October 2013
My husband and I have been together for over 4 years, recently married.
I have a college education and he does not, this has NEVER been an issue, until this evening apparently. I don’t know what has been under his skin but he was so distant and uninvolved this week. He usually helps cook and clean without me asking, everything we do is even across the board. He has been so weird all week. Monday night he made me stop on my way home for beer, fine. He had 2. Last night (Wednesday) he had the remaining 4, again, he was fine, not out of line at all. Well tonight, I come home, he’s already had a 40 oz. He then asks me to go get another, I say fine because I do NOT want him driving. Unfortunately, he does have a DUI on his record. So I pick it up, come back. We were just watching tv when he starts talking about work.
He works a manual labor job and makes great money for someone his age, nothing to complain about at all. I work at a financial services company, and up until a month ago, I was making about $2,400 less annually then him. Well, I got a raise, so that shot me up an extra $1,300 over him. He brought it up tonight that he should of gone to school, and he’s bright and smart and so on. He also mentioned he should have a job like me. Then says of course you had to go off and make more money than me, again. This is when everything turned south.
He started to act super resentful, and I couldn’t talk to him about it due to him be intoxicated. So I complied and just listened. Well he says, have sex with me or go buy more beer. I said wow okay, well I don’t mind doin the deed, well that was the wrong answer. We still had sex, but after we were done he started asking for me keys (we have a single car garage that one of us parks in front of at night) specifically my spare, because it wasn’t in the usual spot. Well I hid it because I didn’t want him driving, especially my car. He wouldn’t let it go so I was trying anything to distract him. Back massage, head massage, you name it.
We ended up messing around some more and that made him tired and he passed out after. My problem is, it’s almost 4 hours later, I can’t sleep because I am upset that he was drunk, I HATE alcohol in large consumptions, and because he made those comments. UGH.
