I notice my wife has been pissed at me lately saying I don't love her anymore. I work at nights from 10pm-7am. I come home and I can't get much sleep. I got tons of problems to think about and try to solve like bills, bills, more bills and where to get the money. question: Am I wrong not being sweet? I don't do it on purpose. I think I'm just too preoccupied. any advices?

Does your wife work too. If so what hours. I know my first wife worked days and I got a full time job working nights. And of course we were young and I was foolish for not going home at after work and going to the bars. No cheating though. Just nnot being there when she needed me. That and money(maybe raising the kids)are the biggest issues.

Unless you want to be divorced you'd be wise to take the hints your wife is throwing at you. Everyone has stress and everyone has problems but, if you have someone who is special to you, you have to take some time once in awhile to show her (or him) that you care. Do something together that the two of you enjoy. You will not regret investing time in your wife.

it may put on strain on relation. but the partner should understand that career is equally important. it is needed for living . may be you can balance both the front equally.
