My DH and I have been married for 10 yrs. We've been parents for 7.
3 yrs ago we moved into our current home. he doesn't cook unless he has to when I'm gone (and even then he buys pizza many times) He doesn't do any dishes, and absolutely no laundry. we have 5 children. that's a lot of dishes, laundry, etc to do on my own!...

a few months ago, he introduced the Wii to our oldest 2 girls. They loved playing his friends Mario game. He knew we couldn't keep the game, as it wasn't ours...So, he decided to make it a Christmas gift. We haven't bought each other gifts for the last couple years... anyway... How convenient that he use something that he really wants for himself (he bought another mario 25th anniversary addition or soemthing like that) and was able to tie it in as a gift for the girls as well. Yes, he would have bought it for himself anyway but the point is....he was suppose to spend the majority of the money on Christmas this year because I paid for about 90% of it last year. ( We have separate finances ) So, guess what! the money he spent on the kids this Christmas was something he bought for himself that he is sharing w/the girls....and then! he put "to Daddy, Briana, Laura From: Santa"
the girls and I decided to make DH a book of 12 coupons for ice cream of his choice each month (not to exceed a gallon per month). I found cute clipart for each coupon ect. I got nothing! I know it's more about giving... I really shouldn't be so crazy but, come on...he got 2 Wii video games and ice cream for a year!

I don't know. tell me I'm crazy if you want. tell me I'm being selfish and to suck it up and "take it like a mom!" I just need some thoughts other than my own. thanks!!

:hugs: Oh lady... your hubby needs to GROW UP. I would be upset as well. Video games are not cheap and if he was able to afford two of them essentially for himself he could have gotten you a little something. I think that's real sweet that you made him those coupons, and he could have done something homemade as well. Ugh I just don't even know how you do it. My hubby is a clean freak and does his own laundry, I couldn't imagine having to do all the chores for a family of seven. Sounds like you need to sit down and have a chat with him and let him know til he starts helping out those ice cream coupons are VOID.

Yes, he does. agreed.
as for the coupons being void...I don't think he'd care. he has enough money of his own to go out and buy his own ice cream... in fact, the coupon book sat on the floor in the living room for a few days before he picked it up and threw it on the top of his entertainment center. as for the games he really hasn't played much...mainly cause the girls haven't wanted to play and he's been busy with some family tree/geneology project

The majority of our arguments are on how I can't do it all on my own and that I need him to help out with the housework. he thinks he does his share in the fact that he's saving to buy our house. he saves a lot each month and he thinks that's enough
we're going to counseling right now....the counselor doesn't seem to know what he's doing most of the time tho...not happy. we'll see if anything comes from our next session...
