It also depends on if you like to make bread or not. I'm not saying everyone should, just throwing it out there. With buying flour in bulk (25lb or 50 lb bags), you could actually get the price of...

I don't know you or your husband. I'm just concerned about you. There is a difference between falling asleep and "passing out." We can only go off your language. (Does he ever not make it to the...

A couple of you mentioned the "golden child" thing. That's not quite it, I don't think. I once heard it described as dh being treated as, "You are God, you are garbage" as a child. THAT makes a...

If he'd quit drinking for a pregnancy, he'd quit before one, just to show you he can do it. But he won't, right? (or can't.) If he passes out when he drinks, he's an alcoholic. You may want to...

Do you censor their library selections at all?
No, not at all.

Do you encourage them to read books that might be more of a challenge?
Yes, but the choice is always theirs.

Yeah, if you are working a lot of hours and your dh is unemployed, it makes the most sense to have him do most of the cooking, I would think (or at least more if it.)
Also, once I was able to...

You said "eye doctor" ; was that an optometrist or Ophthalmologist? I would take him to the latter if you haven't already done so.

Women, in general, have much more fluid sexuality than men. (Women are more likely to be bisexual than men are.) So classifying all women as "very heterosexual" is a bit weird.

If not, then maybe he just needs to understand that you need him to come home by a reasonable time, and 2 or 3 am....
