DH & I have run into the whole spectrum from "No wife of mine is going to sit on her butt & get a free ride" to "Wow. You've got it made... does she have a sister?" :LOL
The guys who have the first attitude are his friends. He hates confrontation, so he doesn't say anything to them about it. It just makes him not want to be around them as much anymore. Then I get blamed for 'not letting' him out to see them
: While on the contrary, I actually encourage him to go have fun & he says if he's going to do something fun, he wants to do it with me & the kids
I think it's more a general disrespect of me than of SAH, though. DH recently contacted one of his 'best' friends (he hadn't seen him since before DD was born & she's 10 months!!) I think he was hoping his friend had matured a little & that they could be close again, but just over the weekend his friend called. He had his girlfriend say "Hi! Is Kevin there?" when I answered. I said "Yes, just a minute, he's outside." After he got off the phone, he told me his friend might be stopping by & Iwas like
"... but that was a woman... ?" The only thing we could come up with is that his friend is trying to make me think DH is cheating on me
The people who are approving of me being at home are the guys he works with. Conversations like that quite often happen when DH is reheating leftovers from our supper the night before & the smell of a home cooked meal catches someones nose! :LOL I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but DH is an electrician. It's a pretty physical job, so he's dead on his feet when he gets home. Maybe they guys he works with can appreciate the idea of having less work to do when they get home because of that?
