Always fighting. Carley 1 child; Cheesetown, WI, United States 775 posts

My husband and I always seem to be fighting over little things. Everything he says drives me nuts...to the way he chews, everything. I don't want to end the relationship but we're just always at each other's throats. For instance, this morning (and I KNOW this is stupid) it was my day to sleep in, just a little. I'm always the one getting DS in the morning, getting him up & ready & fed, and going to work, and then coming home and doing it over again and making dinner, etc. Today was his morning. He woke up with him at 6 & laid him back down, and I believe he got back up around 7ish. Well almost 8 o'clock rolls around and my husband tells me to get up while he uses the bathroom really quick. Really quick was 45 minutes because he then took a super long shower. Then at 9:30 he left for work. Argh. I told him it would've been nice if he would've just TOLD me so I wouldn't have been anticipating going back to sleep. He said I was ridiculous and "always ruin mornings". I'm so annoyed and our marriage lately sucks.

Last night I made dinner after work and did the laundry and took care of my LO who has a really bad cold & is teething. He came home from work and had friends over for an hour and then LO was already in bed and we both went to bed. But he gets morning duty once/twice a week.

So is mine...but I'm always the night caretaker and morning caretaker and I work full time, as does he. He gets morning duty a couple times a week and I just wanted to sleep in before I have to watch LO and clean the house all day.

If it were me, Id tell him if he doesnt have time in the morning to wake up with LO while you rest, then he needs to go to bed earlier, meaning no friends over.




You dont have to lose your marriage mama, but you do need to figure out what is taking away from you two and what needs to change. Talk with him.

Thank you. I know we just need something in our relationship...just need to figure out WHAT.
