My husband stays at home while I work and does nothing around the house.

He does nothing else but watch the kids while I'm at at work. Our son is 4 1/2 months and our daugther is 6 and in school. And worst part about is when I walk in the door from work he expects to get his time away. So I take care of everything around the house and work. I tell him that it is not fair and I want his help around the house but he says that the baby is too demanding during the day. I know the baby takes naps but he still does nothing. Unless I ask him nicely, he is usually spending his day watching TV. He can help around alittle around the house when the baby takes a nap. I consider him a babysitter, because all he does is watch the baby and nothing else and wants to leave when I get home. We spend no time together as a family. I am questioning why we got married and why I should stay with him.

Wow! I'm questioning why you are with him also, lol. Sorry, I'm not trying to be funny. Ok, first thing I would try is sitting him down and making him listen to what you have to say...then make him a "chore" list. A four month old baby is sleeping most of the time, there is no reason why he can't get off his butt and clean something other than he's lazy and don't want to. That's rediculous that you have to go to work all day and he doesn't and then doesn't do any house work and runs out the door as you are walking in it. Sounds like he wants a mommy instead of a wife. Don't put up with that crap! Put your foot down girl!!! If you allow him to do it, he'll keep it up. I wish you the best, message me if you like. Good luck!
