I don't get it - I work full time, have 3 boys ages 13, 11, and 9. I keep the house clean, do all the laundry, cook all the meals, etc. My husband is constantly critical of how I clean, fusses if the house gets a little messy and doesn't lift a finger. We've already been separated for 6 months and just recently got back together. I was unhappy and couldn't take it anymore. He promised to change, cried, etc. Now it feels like a bunch of bull sh*& just to get me back. He is back to his same domineering, critical mean ways again. He acts like a drill sergeant, yet can be so sweet and communicative and loving with me and the kids as well. Its so confusing - honestly the best way I can describe it is like there are 2 people inside of him. He is going to anger management (court ordered) now. Has only been to 2 sessions, but since its court ordered I feel like he doesn't think he even needs it…I'm frustrated and feel like, why in the world did I get back with him….The kids are happy and seem more grounded and at peace, so that makes me feel like it was worth it. We have started all going to church, so maybe things will improve with time and prayer. Does anyone else deal with this? I hate to sound like "misery loves company", but I also feel it is good to have good supportive women to share and relate with. Thank you all in advance.
