In response to a confession. The comment to the op does sound bitchy. I think we should expect the dh behaviour - absolutely - but the op was pleasantly surprised. I’m also glad the op didn’t chide her dh on his dinners - scrambled eggs is fine! How nice to be taken care of, no matter by whom, what a relief.

I swear, sometimes I think DH is actually full on amnesiac. Example: about a year ago, we argued about our trash cans. We have the massive curbside cans that are big enough to stuff a few dead bodies into. We only ever put 1 bag of trash in the trash can per week. I told him the gigantor can takes up a ton of room in our tiny side yard, it’s harder to wheel out, and I wanted to havethe trash company swap it out for their smallest size. He refused, saying we might someday need to fill it, despite the fact that that day has never existed. This week I had the trash company swap it out without talking to him. He said to me we should have done that a long time ago because the huge one takes up so much soace and we barely use 10% of its capacity. Cuckoo!

In response to a confession. You're a better woman than I am. Call me shallow, but I would have run for the hills as soon as I found that out. Kudos for staying and making it work.

In response to a confession. I'm of a generation where the man was the breadwinner and the woman was the homemaker (60+). This is the first time I'm completely dependent on my DH and he's really come through for me. That's it...that's all there is. Quit making a big damned deal over it, would ya?

I am with a man who has a diagnosis of schizophrenia. It is so tough sometimes and we don't even live together.

In response to a confession. The only family I have left is my aunt and uncle (they've stood in as my parents since both of my parents were gone by the time I was 22), and they live on the opposite coast. We were supposed to all go on a big family vacation two years ago, but dh got stuck on a months-long project out of state, so it was postponed to last summer. But last spring my uncle was diagnosed with a terminal illness. He's still at home but my aunt and cousins are running ragged with juggling work schedules and caring for him - he has to be watched 24/7. He also refuses to let ANYONE see him.Dh and I are going away for a night for our anniversary in Sept., and I'm taking ds away for a few days next week. But the next time I see my family will be when my uncle passes. Morbid, but it is what it is.

I had foot surgery two days ago and now navigate through the house on a knee walker. DH has surprised me BIG TIME. He's done the cooking (mostly scrambled eggs and toast, but that's OK), done dishes and laundry, made the bed, and kept me on my pain pill schedule. I never dreamed he'd be doing this much!

In response to a confession. I find this kinda sad. Your dh can't/won't make his own dinner never, ever? I can't believe you think it's history making that he made sandwiches.. geez, it's not even like he cooked anything! He sounds pathetic.

History was made on Friday evening: My DH made his own sandwiches for dinner. I was in the middle of doing an online assessment for work and he had no choice. He most DEFINITELY benefits more from marriage than I do. That's likely why most women aren't ultra sad when their DHs die first, haha. My grandma was sad when my grandpa died, but now she's probably happier than she ever was when he was living.

In response to a confession. I know it's not the same as a vacation for the two of you to go together, but why not go see your family on your own?
