I feel your pain. My husband is a workaholic and works 80+ hrs a week. He's never home before my son and I got to sleep and very often works on weekends, sometimes just Sat, sometimes both Sat and Sun. I used to get really sad and feel like I'm the only one raising our child but at this point, I'm used to it and it's my husband's loss that he's missing out on his son growing up. I can't force him to change, he has to realize it himself.

My husband is away alot. he works in Athens and I am at home in the UK. We talk via skype every day. I found it hard to adjust at first but now I am used to it. He is normally away for 5-6 weeks at a time. It does get lonely at times, I just have to keep busy. It is the nights that get me. There is only so much tv you can watch!

Mine never was. He would go out almost every night and leave me with the baby. He's now my ex, but yeah it was nerve wracking.

I NEVER got time to myself, he seemed to think I did nothing as a SAHM, and that my job was so much easier than his. Yeah 24/7 is much easier than 40 hours a week, with weekends off.
