My husband is a handful and sometimes he is worse than the children. Am I alone?

No your not alone! I too feel this way sometimes. My fiance is a handful and sometimes is worse than our child! LOL, but it passes and he has his strong points. That is what I concentrate on when he frustrates me so much! By the way, welcome to mylot and hope to see more posts from you soon!

HECK NO! You're not alone! My hubby is 33 and there are times I have to bring a spatula with me to the dinner table so I can smack his hands when he's acting up at the table. He'll annoy us until we're about to kill him. "How many kids do you have?" "5...four kids and one husband."

It is very much true for Indian husbands. Their typical upbringing prevents them to give a helping hands to their wives, specially in front of their mothers. They need evrything in their hands and dont bother to look around for things. They need to be treated the same way we tera our children. Why??? God knows.

Yes I think you are right there. Husbands cand efinetely be worse then children. At least children listen most of the time and if they don't you can send them to their room lol.

hahaha. this is too funny! i always complain about this. i always say that my husband is worse than my 17 month old. at least my son has an excuse, hes little! my husbands excuse...hes lazy. i constantly joke that i already have 2 children, and that the bigger one is the more difficult one. he is the only one who complains about dinner, about the house, about...a lot of things. rrr. just cant keep them happy for too long. i know he loves me, and i love him, but he sure does like to pick at me a lot. i think this is something that all of us wives complain about though. i am also sure that the husbands compalain about us though. oh well. as long as there is love, its all good.

I have a fifteen year old daughter who is taking after her daddy. The both of them are a force to be reckoned with! They will leave their clothes wherever they take them off. I have placed laundry baskets in strategic locations through the house (3 total for three of us), and I still end up picking up clothes to do the laundry! My hubby is known for having two or three glasses going at one time. He will have to dirty a new cup for each drink he fixes himself. I have tried to persuade him into just rinsing the darn glass out before pouring new drink into it, and he just ignores me. My daughter is bad for leaving glasses in her room. Then she will wind up with 8 glasses in her room at the end of the week! It is bothersome because when she does the dishes, she will forget abot them and they don't get washed until I "find" them in her room.

Yes, I am so with you on this! My husband can be a handful at times too and sometimes he makes me want to scream. Sometimes my almost 2 year old is easier to handle then him.

My hubby is definitely worse than my children. He can be so immature at times and he is so fussy about food. I'm so stressed when he's around because I don't know what to cook for him. It's so much simpler cooking for myself and my two kids. Given a choice ,I normally cook a one dish meal but he expects 3 dishes plus soup to go with rice.
