The Family & Parenting ForumsFamily dynamics can be exactly that - dynamic! Post here about family related issues such as parenting, blended families, step-families, new relationships with children involved, family of origin issues, in-laws or sibling issues.
I am hoping that someone can give me some advice here.
My husband is always complaining about by family. I bought a bday gift today for my sister and my husband got mad. He said he didnt understand why we always do things for other people or are always there for other people but they are never there for us (or as much) in return. He is always complaining that my father gets on his nerves because he wants things done but doesnt often offer to come help us out. I feel as though I am always in the middle when he starts complaining.
I get frustrated and tell him not to do things for people anymore if they cannot help us out but he continues to do whatever people ask of him. Then he turns around and *****es to me that he is tired of doing things for other people. I am just so frustrated and really dont know what to say or do......
