You know, it sounds like a case of possible depression due to poor economical circumstances and his/your misunderstanding of his role as a new father.
We have one 2-1/2 year old, and my W had been displeased with my actions. We had been going thru tough economic times as well and I felt it was my #1 priority to assure that we kept the bills paid and a roof over our heads. I work full time and on top of that bought/fixed/sold items on craigslist to keep us afloat. No vacations no relaxing weekends just work work work, and with a crushed disc and 2 herniated ones in my lower back, poor sleep on top of everything else.
We have a newer home that still needs alot of trimmings, I got a lot of flak for the lack of those "trimmings", no money for them, and my "ignorance" as a father, when in fact I was looking at the bigger picture and doing my best to keep us in our home.
My W didn't, and still doesn't understand that.
