He resents me for being home, and assumes I do nothing all week.

by Jesi

I work 3 of 4 weekends, and he works Sun night through late Friday most weeks. Sometimes he stops in for a shower or nap when home crosses his path.

Always pleasant at home, and everything is great. But then I get text messages about how while he is working like crazy I am home getting nothing done around the house. Mind you we have a very hair dog and it's summer, so an hour after vacuming there will be more hair.

Also have a 6 year old whose main talent is making a mess. And on top of the usual house chores I am doing a DIY wedding that is about a month away, so that's time consuming.

I've never been one to have a spotless home, but there are always clean dishes and clothes, food in the fridge, bills paid on time, yard work, being a mother, etc. So it might have been beautiful just 2 hours before he shows up, which I can never plan on, but by the time he walks in there is jelly on the table, a pile of laundry needing folding, and wedding crap covering the counter I'm trying work on.

He is all smiles, hugs and kisses. But when he's gone he claims nothing is ever done when he's home as soon as we argue. It's like "male refrigerator blindness".

Now he's giving me the silent treatment since I said we'd have an experiment to see what the house would look like after a week of me doing nothing. Childish I know, but I can't figure out if he just has super high standards (never used to). Or if he is being resentful of my home time, and pictures me in my sweats on the couch watching tv all week. Should I actually do the housework boycott so he can see how much of an ass he is being? Or just try and become June Clever mixed with Rosie the Riveter? Any advice? ANY?

solution to any problem NEW
by: Ella Smith


My Name is Mrs. Ella Smith I was married to my husband for 10 years and we were both bless with three children, living together as one love, until 2011 when things was no longer the way the was [when he lost his job]. But when he later gets a new job 6 months after, he stated sleeping outside our matrimonial home. Only for me to find out that he was having an affair with the lady that gave he the job. since that day, when i called him, he don't longer pick up my calls and he nothing since to come out good. Yet my husbands just still keep on seeing the lady. Until I met a very good friend of my who was also having a similar problem, who introduced me to a very good love spell caster. But i told her that if it has to do with things that i am not interested, but she said that it has nothing to do with pay first. but the only thing he was ask to do was just to go and buy the items to cast the spell, and that was what she did. And she gave me the spell caster e-mail address and phone number. When i contacted him, i was so surprise when he said that if i have the faith that i will get my husband back in the nest three [3] day, and off which it was really so. but i was so shock that i did not pay any thing to Atingo but my husband was on his knells begging me and the children for forgiveness. This testimony is just the price i have to pay. This man Atingo is good and he is the author of my happiness. His email address s0lid0dspelltemple2@gmail.com

Better think twice

This isn't going to get better after you get married. Better resolve any issues before you say "I do".
