Couple In Conflict (…and workin it out) 😉
- Robert & Carla Graves from Cincinnati,Ohio
- Married for 2 and a 1/2 years
- 3 children
I think my husband is immune to giving the children baths. Whenever bath time arrives my husband vanishes right before my eyes and miraculously reappears in the basement sitting on the couch in front of the t.v. I’m not asking that we equally share the responsibility of bathing our children. But I am asking that he participate. I work and I’m tired after work. These are his children too and they need to be cleaned and i’m not the only one that knows how to make a bubble bath.
When I get home from work in the evenings I want to relax and not be bothered with that type of task. I feel like she is giving me something additional to do like I don’t have enough on my plate already. She gives the baths and I take out the trash. We both agreed on this when we were in pre-marital counseling. When I give the baths is she gonna take out the trash. NO. Therefore I’m leaving the bathing of our children to her and I’ll handle other important aspects of managing our home. She should handle her business and let me handle mine.
