Hi. There's many things I want to say, but at the same time I don't wanna stretch this out, so I'm gonna get right to the point. My wife feels that she does way more then I do. I work 2 jobs, ranging around 60 hrs a week, I started this so she can take some time off for the birth of our baby boy. He is the only child we have, and we are coming on 3 years of being together, 1 1/2 married. Anyways, I've been working hard for about 6 months in resataurants, where I get broken down, sometimes I'm slurring when I get off because Im so tired. I also had a major religious commitment that I completely dropped so I could be with my fam more. I think she has completely forgotten it. I had hobbies that I have totally minimized, and much more. She, on her side watched our son 24/7, and I'll be the first to say that may have been just as much work. Now she has gone back to work partime, and now she is all over me about watching our son. She actually wanted me to spend my only 2 days off, watching our son the whole time, knowing I have a hundred things to do. It really appears to me she has absolutely no care about anything that I have to do on my spare time, chores, errands, hobbies, she has very little concept of this, while she has an iphone that she is on every moment of the day.
Back to the point, in a nutshell, I work very hard and I have made huge sacrifices for my son and wife, she has too, but she feels I dont help out enough. I have even heard that women cant help but feel this way, and thats fine with me but what am I suppose to do when shes driving me crazy, starting arguments and whatnot. How do you handle someone who can only see it one way, and not the actual way?
