I never imaged myself as the nagging wife, that's not what I wanted to be, but it seems lately that's what I've become. My husband and I have been married just over three years and as far as our love and connection that's still great. We both deeply love each other, but it's just I feel like I'm in a parent/child relationship more than a marriage to an ADULT sometimes.
He works part time and I work full time, although I do work from home so I'm able to do things a little easier here. I'm the ONLY one who cooks because he says he can't cook and that he'd burn the house down so he isn't even willing to try. Fine, whatever if you won't cook you should at least help me around the house. Every few weeks on a weekend if I corner him and force him he will help me do a pretty good cleaning, but the problem is the commen since stuff. He comes home and throws his coat on the couch, he finishes a snack and leaves the trash laying on the nightstand in our bedroom. Instead of taking out the trash he'll overflow it to where it's literally laying all over the floor. He'll have the day off while I'm working all day and the dishes in the sink will still be there that night. He'll wear the same dirty socks for a month without changng because he's too lazy to do it.....sadly I'm serious about that last one.
He spends all night and day playing video games, playing around online, and watching tv and/or reading. Once about every six months he'll do something without asking like the dishes or sweep or something, but then thinks that's his free pass to say "See, I help out, I just did the dishes and you act like I never do anything"
