Well if you can’t leave him and are so unhappy, what else can you do? Either you speak about your concerns with him, see if he changes a little bit, suggest marital therapy for the both of you, or go alone if he refuses. Unfortunately if he doesn’t want to change and knows that you’re not going anywhere anyway, this will be your life.

Either insist on counseling or, if things are well past that point, see an attorney to explore your options.

What has he said when you ask him to be home more?  Definitely time for counselling.

You can’t take your son with you if you go?

What does your husband say when you point out to him that he comes home like he’s just getting lodging and boarding?

Who is making his tea 2x/day?

I’m not getting your reasoning. I’m also not sure why you’re clarifying that he’s not addicted to alcohol? I may have missed something there.

Personally, I wouldn’t keep making tea (or anything else) for someone who was taking me for granted and treating me like I was running a bed and breakfast and they were a guest.

Was he like this before you got married?

aaaaaaaaaaaa :  I think you should consider going back to school, even part time , for some kind of job training, refresher courses. This can help you get back some confidence, help you get out of the house a little bit, and maybe find a job in the futureif you would like.

This seems rough Bee. 🙁 That’s all I have to say. I do agre with PP – you need to get out more and get some independence. You’re his wife, not his slave. You’re a team and leaving you to tend to your family alone is not ok.

Hugs
