I am married for 6 years.
Suddenly I notice the change in my wife. It’s living lifestyles, no cheating or what.
Partly both also at fault. Let’s not talk about the faults. I have 2 wonderful children age 3 n 4. My wife don’t do house work. She want to focus on her career. Recently she keeps want to go overseas with her female friends.
But she is not interested to go with her family. To me I feel like go overseas should b we family go together. Anyway, we never been overseas before as we feels there is too much stuff to bring and kids still young can’t walk by themselves. But recently I did suggest we go overseas together but she isn’t interested but she wants to travel with her friends.
She feels she married too early the kids is obstructing her to do what she wants whether it’s work or traveling. I told her every parent are the same. I also don’t travel, most mother also won’t travel overseas without her kid or family. U are not the only one making sacrifices.
Now she says she wanna do stuff that only makes her feel happy. Any comments on this?
Here are what netizens think:
- What nonsense is this? Just because other mothers don’t have the privilege of a supportive husband or system in place, does not mean you got to subject her to such “noble” sacrifices? Is she going to relax when going on trips with family and young children? She’s gonna be a full time nanny lugging children planning packing everything. Think about how entitled you sound in this post.
- Even after being married, it is important to have balance in life. Time with family, friends and socializing. Let your wife travel with her friends, be understanding and perhaps you can help look after the kids while she travels so that she can unwind. Maybe you can plan a family trip next time and cover the expenses. Or otherwise start with a staycation first. Send her to the airport and see her off.
- it’s different travelling with her friends vs travelling with family. she’d be more carefree and unwind with them while travelling with young kids.. it’s a chore. i would suggest you let her go with her friends and let her know to limit to # a year as you don’t like it. (idk why you dont like it unless no one help with the kids?)
