My brother in law has been living with us for about 3 months now and he is an absolute horror to live with. Not only does he play his music at all times of the day while my 3mo is trying to nap/sleep, he NEVER cleans up after himself even though I’ve asked him (nicely) repeatedly to do so. He just recently blew up at me for leaving ONE dirty pan on the stove because he was trying to make dinner... More
He always talks about how he wants more kids but hardly helps out with the one we have. I’m not sure if it’s because we’re both new parents and he’s nervous but he hardly spends any time with her. He’s also super messy so i’m always cleaning and trying to get him to pick up after himself. And at the same time he complains that the house is too clean!!! We have a 7.5 month old so she’s always pu... More
This my 1st time posting. I’m a father to a 4 year and a 1 year old, ever since our kids were born they have been attached. I know kids want to spend time with their parents, but sometimes my wife and I just want quality time . Even if it’s just for a night. Any ideas on getting the kids to be more independent? I hope this doesn’t sound selfish of us
My husband and I have always been a little switched from the stereotypical couple. I’m the one who constantly wants sex, and my husband doesn’t feel that it’s as important as other things in a marriage. In my personal opinion, a sexless marriage isn’t a marriage. For me, sex is a way to gauge how we are as a couple. If things are good, and we are communicating well and relatively content, we ar... More
We’re a family of 4, my husband and I and our two kids. I have a big family compared to my husband. Holidays, and celebrations, etc are a big thing for us. He is always unwilling and states that he doesn’t need to go or be there. But we’re a family and we should be there together. Not just me and the kids. I understand that he doesn’t or we don’t need to go to every family event but if it is im... More
My husband works all day then comes home and gets back online. He feels the pressure from the “always on” culture of his team, many of which are older men whose kids are grown, yet we have two young kids. Any suggestions of books that addresses this issue? (Note: I work too, but when we discuss it he takes it like a nag or that I don’t support his career.)
I don't understand why my husband feels cuz he works 12 hours a day he shouldn't have to do anything for the kids my kids are 18 14 + 8 and when he gets a day off of work while he wants to do is sit around the house and still wants me to do everything and then when I do want to go have me some me time he wants me to take two other kids with me.
We are having our first baby in June and going on a babymoon in a couple weeks (to Washington DC). Our last day there will be his birthday. Any recommendations for gifts or special things to do? TIA!!
Literally from baby name, to what to do when LO is sick or teething, to baby gear and it drives me up the wall. And when I tell him about it he says it’s just good to get a second opinion. It’s his younger sister and just because her kid is 4 doesn’t mean she’s a baby expert. Sometimes he’ll ask him mom but he’ll ask her too. What annoys me the most is when she’ll try to tell us what medication... More
I am a STAY AT HOME MOM and I don’t drive due to serious anxiety problems so I’m literally stuck at home. I’ve thought of getting a job but I’d pretty much be working just to pay the baby sitter so that’s out of the question. I have no clue what to do at this point I’m starting to feel tired of my relationship and have started arguments for no reason because I feel like my husband is just free... More
My husband and I had a fight the other day. I tried to talk to him about it after the kids went to bed and he went off on me. I was upset about the situation and how he reacted. I posted about the issue we disagreed on in a facebook online advice group. I was looking for input as to whether I was being unreasonable. I have posted in the group before and the advice has oftentimes helped m... More
So I’ve been seeing these posts on fb how it says “Dad should take pictures of Mom randomly when she’s doing stuff with the kids so they can look back on it etc”.. my husband never does. And I always take pictures of him with our babies at home or when we’re out. And now it’s starting to make me feel bad. My first Mother’s Day he didn’t do anything, doesn’t do anything on my birthday, Valentin... More
So I’ve always had the issue of going out with my partner to someone’s gathering or party and not knowing how to get him out the door after spending a considerably good time with his friends. I’m not an outgoing, adventurous nor social person but I try to be every now and then for him. Recently we’ve had kids and I’ve grown to be more strict with our outings due to the kids schedules, how long ... More
So I am about 27 weeks 6 days pregnant and during my the start of my pregnancy till now I have been having strange dreams of my SO. The dreams always consisted of him leaving me or cheating on me but it was with always someone I knew. I feel like it can be me not feeling confident with myself due my body changing with it being my second pregnancy. But when I had asked people and even asked like... More
I’ve been going to the gym for the past two month to lose the sympathy weight but I can’t get my wife to participate with me mainly due to the fact that her dad used to punish her as a kid by doing physical activity so her cognition of exercise is twisted.
Husband works 9-7 5 days a week and most nights when he comes home he continues to work til midnight. We’ve talked and fought and now go in circles about how he never takes the kids or gives me a break. On weekends he sleeps in while I get up at 7-8 am to get the kids dressed and fed, then he will sit on his laptop and work all day and meanwhile I’m left alone again all day with the kids. I’m f...

I'm a pretty damn good mom of twins but it gets hard a lot of the time. My S/O works a lot to provide for the family. It feels like he isn't doing what he should with the babies though. They're a little over a year old and I was hoping he would interact with them more. He basically gets home and says hello, gives hugs, kisses and every now and then will play with them for 5 or 10 mi... More
