We've had a lot of fights around here about
it, especially in the last year. But, after finally figuring out how to communicate I finally figured out that it wasn't so much that he was upset that I wasn't pulling my weight with household stuff, but that he was more upset that I wasn't there for him and he felt like he was getting the shaft overall. As I've worked to find ways to show him that I'm still here for him, and to do what I can he's calmed down and has actually started trying to be more helpful. I guess what I'm saying is try to figure out what's really at the root of things, and I know that's easier said than done (especially, when you are working and hurting and feeling overwhelmed), but you've got to learn the new normal and figure out how to communicate with each other.
