I am really hoping you can help me. DH and I have been married for 3 1/2 years and just had our first baby. Communication has ALWAYS been a problem with us. Normally we are good but when he has just a few drinks it gets bad.
I will start with last night just as an example. He works a lot, dont get me wrong but he also makes lots of time for friends and drinking. So, last night he said he was going over to his Mom and Dad's to work on something and he would be home around 6:30. I never called him because I assumed he was working on what he said. He is normally late by a good half an hour sometimes 3. So, he called at 7:30 saying he was supprised that I hadnt called him yet, and that he was at a friends house who asked him to be an usher in his wedding. I asked him if he could come home then because he keeps missing days with his son because he is working or just hanging out with buddies. I then turn into nagging wife and call until he heads home. Finally at 8 he is headed home. (an hour and a half since he said he would come home)
Starts complaining about the clothes that are folded but not put away. (Babies clothes and he was in bed didnt want to wake him up) I am in bed already because I have to be at work at 6. He then keeps slamming doors and complaining loud enough for me to hear about everything he can think of I am sure. Finally he comes to bed and starts yelling at me for calling him and texting him. I said "you are so inconderate, you are a father, when will you start acting like it and be home? Take part in his life? And your wife who you have always put second to your friends, where are
