I Feel Like His Mother

I have a problem with my husband. He drives me crazy I feel he is more like my teen-age son than a husband. He lets me take care of everything(I HAVE TO OR IT WILL NOT GET DONE, HE JUST DOESNT PAY ATTENTION) I have to be responsible for the children(HE YELLS ALOT IF THEY WHINE) and paying all of the bills. He does give me his paycheck, but complains if I don't always have money to give him. After bills sometimes there isn't any left over. He runs up horrible expenses, that he says he will take care of but never does. And he is always sorry for the temper tantrums. MY PROBLEM IS I WANT US TO BE A FAMILY WITH TWO PARTNERS AND TO RESPECT MY HUSBAND AS A MAN. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE HIM MATURE WITHOUT LOOSING THE FARM?

Re: I Feel Like His Mother

Sounds like most of this is about finances. Have HIM do the checkbook for the next 3 months, that should stop his spending and help him to be aware of what shape you are in financially...and why you have to say "no" sometimes. If he says he can't do it, thats fine, just have him sit WITH you while you do the bills each month. Point is, he needs to be aware of whats going on, to actually SEE it.

Re: I Feel Like His Mother

Since you have a house you may also want to consider growing some of your own vegetables and herbs. It can be a nice pastime for you and maybe even for him. I can't do that stuff though, I live in an apartment and I have a black thumb, I killed my Chia pet in 3 days
