My husband and I are expecting in May. We are having our baby a little sooner than we planned and I’m worried his maturity is going to cause problems for us.
I have only spent a handful of Saturdays with my husband since we started dating. He has always made it very clear that Saturday is “for the boyz” and I can have him the rest of the week. When it was just the two of us fine, I’d go hang out with my girl friends or have a day to myself but now that I’m pregnant he doesn’t see that family needs to be a higher priority.
I told him he needs to be at home to help me as my belly get’s bigger and the baby is born, but he said “this is the only thing he’s ever asked for” is to have Saturdays with his friends. He said we can do whatever we want during the rest of the week and I tried explaining to him with a baby Saturdays are going to look a lot different but he said he would be miserable if I changed the one thing he’s had consistent in his life for over 7 years.
How do I get it through his head that eventually Saturdays with the boys need to stop?
