Give us a hand

Today, I'm solely responsible for my kids, entirely, while my husband goes to the gym, his office, goes running, and plays with his buddies. He wanted kids; I didn't. FML

Did you not discuss children before getting married? Why did you have them, then? Just to keep him around? 1) FYL for your husband not giving his 50% for something he wanted. 2) YDI for you giving in to having kids and not divorcing him.

There are a lot of things in a relationship that you can compromise on (eg what to have for dinner, what movie to watch, what house to buy…whatever) but kids should never be on that list.

Who wouldn't want to have kids with a wife like you? If you had the slightest self-respect, you'd demand he puts more effort into raising the kids. After seeing what it takes, I'll bet he gets a vasectomy!

That'll teach you for not sticking to your convictions. Ya done goofed, so deal with it and be a decent, responsible parent.

That's part of why I won't change my mind for a man and I'm sick of hearing "But what if you find a man who wants kids?". NO.

Time to remind him that parenting involves the mother AND the father.
