    I was in your shoes. For years. I fought and begged with my husband. He didn’t want to work, he flunked out of school, and hated being a stay at home parent. I finally realized that I didn’t want to be his care taker. He was asking far too much of me, and it wasn’t fair. I took a long time to think about my wording, and then I told him that I was done with the set up. That he had to choose a path, and not whine about each of them. If he couldn’t do that, he was not cut out to be a father or husband and it was on him.

    It was hard, we fought a lot. We went to marriage counseling, we talked seriously about separation several times, but we pulled through. We just had our 14th wedding anniversary, and he is officially working full time, while I am going to school full time and handling the kids.

    I know many would say leave him, but I say you just really need to frame it out. If he can’t contribute to the family as a whole functional adult, then what does that really mean for you and your future?
