Why, oh why, do I send my dh to the grocery store? $130 on crap. Total crap. Half of what was on the list he said he couldn't find, but it's just because he didn't look. I asked him to get two bags of store brand corn chips. He gets a tiny bag of Fritos. I had meals planned and one of them was nachos. And then he bitches that we spend too much money. I know damn well I could have gotten out of there spending under $100. Never again, dh. Your grocery days are over!

In response to a confession. OMG, I am so, so sorry that happened and that your ds had to see it. Assault changes everything. In that regard, I've always made it clear to every partner that it's "One and done." If it happens once, it could happen again. I hope you make the right choice for you and your son. Also wanted to say, ds was 19 months old when I ended my relationship with his father, and it resulted in assault and the police becoming involved. Ds would not go NEAR his father while we were waiting for the police. We had 50/.50 during our custody battle, which lasted for years, and ds would FLIP every time he had to go to dad's - even telling me if he had to go he'd rather go to grandma's. I did get full custody, and even up to 5th grade ds was telling friends that he hated his dad. Like I said, assault changes everything. Be strong!

I think I stayed with my ex for so long because, in my family, loyalty is love. All the women are miserable, but they stay married and brag about the length of their marriage, like it's some kind of accomplishment. Everyone talks about how wonderful my grandma's 69 years of marriage were, but it's total bs. My grandpa had an affair and fathered a child with his mistress. My grandma obviously wasn't happy. But let's celebrate their beeyootiful marriage. Such bullshit. It's OK to leave someone who doesn't make you happy. My divorce taught me that there is no grace in being a martyr.

I really hate how my dh does the dishes because he does them half assed, but compared to my friend's dh's/bf/so's (and most of them on here) he's a domestic god. He does laundry, cleans, cooks, runs household errands, yardwork, takes ds to the doctor, ortho appointments, assists dh in the mornings, etc. He is usually the one that calls in to work when ds is sick or is off school and he's the only guy I know that does all that. All these men expect their partners to shoulder all the emotional labor and responsibility of running a home and nurturing their children. I've encouraged him to do all this. His mom is always so surprised that he is so involved with everything because that's not how he was raised. His brother isn't like that all. His baby had a double ear infection and his mom asked what kind of medicine she was on and he just shrugged and was like I dunno. He's not perfect, but neither am I. I'm not going to be featured on snapped because I hate how he does dishes.

I've been married for a long time. We have a good marriage. Good sex, good times, enjoy hanging out together....Last night I had a dream that DH was having an affair with the female half of a couple we see on weekends. She's a lazy hypochondriac who sleeps about 15 hours a day. The odd thing is I've convinced myself that my horrible joint pain and fatigue is rheumatoid arthritis, and all I want to do is sleep. Projecting much?

The pettiness and bickering on this site over the stupidest shit is unreal. People are advising someone in a shitty marriage with a shitty husband to leave him and everyone loses their shit. I don't see an issue..if op was a friend of mine irl and told me all the stuff he does/doesn't do to her, I'd tell her the same thing. So what.

Her dh sounds exactly like my ex-husband, and my coworker's exhusband, and my bff's current husband. Loads of men pull shit like this. Believe it or not, there's been a lot of research on the topic because women are socialized to tolerate this bullshit. So fucking what if she's trying to save her marriage? She isn't weird, or crazy, or even unique in her situation. Way to talk down to her, though. (Yes, you did.)
