Family is everything

Today, I thought I would take my family to the beach for the day. My wife is sitting on the front porch, not talking to me, because after working a 60-hour week, I would rather enjoy my family and the fruits of my labor, rather than help her clean the house that she has spent all week at, doing nothing.

if you have multiple children that she's kept alive, your house is dirty but livable and she's kept the place running, chances are she's worked more than your 60 hours and you probably said something stupid like you did here and THAT'S why she's not speaking to you. stay at home mom is a full time job that she never ever gets a break from, including at the beach. she doesn't get to clock out and go home.

He said so but it does not mean it is true. If he has little kids (he does say he would like to enjoy his family) she has been taking care of, then YDI. If she really did nothing, then yes, FYL.

Spend two hours + doing house work and my house looks like someone had a house party in it. If I want it to look spotless my wife or I have to take the kids out while the other hits the house work hard. Leave the house work and take your wife to the beach, she needs it

This is one sided. From her point of view I bet you’re the bad guy too. Communication is vital to make a relationship cordial.

Yeah, stay at home parent isn't anywhere as difficult as mainstream ideas would have people believe and they get a TON of breaks. Stop that bullshit right there.

How often did you remind her that she did nothing all week? Because apparently, that isn't getting through. I'm sure she'd be MUCH less angry then...

I know your pain. My husband is the same way. Between work, college, and kids I should also be doing the housework too.
