I am the mother of three children, and feel like a mother to my husband! At this point I don’t know what else there is to do. I’m on maternity leave with our last baby, and determined to actually enjoy myself this time. This is incredibly hard to do with a lazy, irresponsible, immature 30 year old husband.
He leaves his dirty clothes and dishes throughout the house, doesn’t bother eating dinner that I’ve made – instead will eat hot dogs or pizza pops – leaves garbage laying around, will spend the last bit of money we have with almost a week before more is coming in, and I am more than fed up. If I call him out on any of it, I get told he ‘cleans up plenty after me so don’t start.’ If something needs done that doesn’t directly benefit him, then it’s up to me to do it.
Is this marriage? Am I being an ungrateful nag, or is this what I have to live with for the next 40+ years?
Sincerely, Mom of three + one from Kitchener
