Refusing to make all my husbands meals?
I have three kids and am currently pregnant with my fourth. I left work to take care of our kids. My husband thinks that because I don’t work outside the house it’s my responsibility to take care of ALL duties related to the house and kids.
You name it- cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, homework, school activities, drop offs, etc. On top of everything I do, he also expects me to make all of his meals- breakfast lunch and dinner.
I am so tired recently from entertaining the kids all day and I’ve been having a hard time with my pregnancy. He told me “life’s tough this is your job” and has no sympathy for me.
In fact, he thinks I have it easy because I “don’t work.” The last two nights I’ve refused to make him dinner and he’s acting like I’m a useless ‘horrible’ wife.
Why can’t he stop at the store after work and pick himself something up? Or look at what we have in the fridge and make something?
When he’s hungry he’ll constantly say “I’m starving, I’m so hungry etc” being passive aggressive to let me know he wants me to make him something.
I’m completely undervalued and unappreciated. Am I wrong for putting my foot down and refusing to wait on him hand and foot?
- I’m not even married to your husband and I want to divorce him. What a jerk.
- Unless your husband is working 16 hours a day, he had better start stepping up. You’re doing the work of babysitter, cook, cleaner, and personal shopper. How many jobs is he doing?
- I spent 10yrs as a SAHM. When he was at work I was in charge of all kid/house duties. When he was home it was 50/50.
- Why are you still in this marriage and on your way to having a FOURTH kid with him?
