It's not that my husband doesn't want to be with our son, he adores our little man. But he seems to want to be a father and husband when it's convenient. He often chooses to spend his free time playing video games, sleeping or going out, leaving me to take care of the baby and house all day and night. I've tried talking to him about it, but he just gets angry at me and says I'm trying to make him feel guilty for having time to himself. I've tried explaining that I need time to myself as well, and the more time he spends to himself, the more time I'm "working."
By the way, I'm a stay at home mom and he works a very demanding job with long hours. Having me stay home was mutual ( I used to work a demanding job with long hours--- and made just enough money to break even when it came to the cost of daycare) It just made more sense to our family to have me stay home.
I don't know if he's starting to resent the fact that I'm not working, or if it's something else? I have been wanting to work from home, unfortunately, with him not being around very much, I don't have time to pursue that.
I guess my question is--- is he just adjusting to how different his life is now and will eventually come around, or is this a problem?
