I am a married woman, I worked 8 hrs a day, and when i got home i have to attend to my son and the household chores, for I dont have a helper..So when sleeping time comes I am very tired already, but my husband has request before going to sleep.. Despites of my very tiring day, I did not hesistate with my husband's request for i am afraid if it will be a start of an argument and I dont want him to get mad.. So, I wanted to know how will i refuse my husband's request without hurting his feelings and offending him..

try to be witty and 1 step ahead of him. for example when u come home find some moments alone with u'r hubby before getting in bed, hug him and tell him something like "it feels so good to hold u, i'd wish i wasn't so tired. i would have loved to fool around later if it weren't for this crazy day i had. i feel exhausted". that way u'r not hurting his feelings or lie to him

Tell him no because you are tired and if he wants things from you he has to help you around the house so you are not so tired.

Maybe you should sit down and have a talk with your husband about this. You need your rest too. Your downtime is important as well as everyone elses in the home. Wives, mothers, and women in general need to take the time for themselves. Let your husband know how you are feeling and maybe he will help out around the house or do the things for himself. Even if it is once or twice a week. Just something to help you out.
