I have been down this road for an awful long time, and i feel that i have done all that i can do to let my husband know that i need his help! We have two young girls together, and we both work full time. We have been married for almost 2 years now, but we had our oldest daughter who is now 4 when we were in our senior year of high school. Our youngest daughter is now 9 months old.
We own our home, and it comes with the usualy upkeep and chores, but i feel like most often it is up to me to get anything done. i do the dishes, laundry, grocery shopping, running the girls around, errands, bills, cleaning the house, feeding both children, ect. I have to beg for his help, and he always gets mad, says i'm b*tching, and it always ends in a fight. He is often doing whatever he wants to do, such as stuff in his garage, watching a movie in our room alone, while im downstairs with the kids, or playing some video game. I know that he sees me constantly running around with stuff to do, but he very seldom offers to help. Needless to say, i am stressed out, and i am resentful of him. I feel like i have no patience for that stuff, and i feel like a single mom with 3 kids, instead of 2! It shouldnt be like this, and i know that most relationships are not like this. So either he changes, or i leave; thats really where i feel like i am right now. i just cant handle it anymore!
