To get right to it, the only things DH does around here are mow the lawn and do his own laundry. I'm not exaggerating. We have DS age 3 & DD age 5. I teach high school English, and when I come home, he gets on his Playstation or Ipod while I entertain the kids and cook dinner. Also, I'm going to start my master's degree online, and DH said to let him know if i need his help with anything when I start that. IF i need anything?? I'm going to be teaching all day, bringing home papers to grade, doing my OWN school work, and he implies that I might NOT need his help?! I feel like making a list of chores is something i would do for a KID, not him. But if i say anything about how i feel like i do everything around here, he just gets mad & says he's a shi**y husband, but nothing changes.
I'm not sure what i should do, i just needed to tell someone. Thanks.View Thread
Hi, all. . .I'll try to make this short. I am 31 years old, and my husband of almost 10 years is 37. We have two beautiful children, ages 5 and 2 1/2. It seems like since we've stopped trying to have kids, I have NO desire for sex whatsoever. I never initiate sex, and my husband has to get me close to orgasm before I'm interested in intercourse. Sometimes I have these weird feelings of anger, almost, when we're having sex. . . I don't know what the problem is. If the two of us are just watching TV or something and he starts touching me sexually, I feel uncomfortable. It's really tough for me to share this, but I know that he doesn't deserve my lack of interest. He tells me I'm in denial and that I'm just not physically attracted to him (he's overweight), but I really don't think I would want sex from ANYONE. I think I need to find a sex therapist or something, but I wondered if anyone here had any ideas or feedback for me. The only thing I can think of is that no one EVER talked about sex when I was growing up, and so maybe I've come to think of it as inappropriate/taboo/whatever. TIA for any input.View Thread
No, there's no fear of pregnancy b/c DH had a vascectomy after our 2nd. I am not on any medications. . . I have always had irregular periods (currently haven't had one since September) and now am wondering if maybe I have some sort of hormonal imbalance that could be at issue here.View Thread
