My marriage has been going downhill for a while. I quit work to finish my degree and care for my (now) two year old son. Since leaving work my marriage has been rocky. My husband spends all his free time hunting/fishing. Even when he is home there is no connection between us. I feel that he is unappreciative of the things I do as a wife and mother. He does not share in my desire to socialize and he doesn't celebrate in my successes with me. This weekend was both Mother's Day and my college graduation and I didn't get recognition from him for either. I have been preoccupied lately and I know that I was probably less than nice at times. However, the lack of support with the household and our son only added to the strain. I'm depressed, because I fear the lack of job availability now that I'm finished with classes, as well as the added responsibility a new role will add to this already building turmoil. I wish there was a unified front between us that would relieve the pressure, but instead the relationship is just another source of stress at this point. When I hear about
the time friends spend with their husbands, it makes me more depressed, because we don't make the time for ourselves anymore...and when we have in the last few years the time together has been less than fun. Last summer I has to practically drag my husband to a concert that I won tickets to, and he just made the whole night a downer. I wish I had gone alone, which is the case more often than not when we go somewhere that should be fun together. I don't want my marriage to end, for the sack of my son..I wish we has the fun we had early in our relationship.
