I feel my marrige is falling apart after 18 months
I'm a 50 year old Australian who married a 30 year old Pilipino 18 months ago.
We first met 5 years ago when I was on Holiday here where met at shopping mall where my wife worked.
Before we got married we lived together for 9 months where we shared the home duties
I work full time in excess of 50 hours per week, My wife works part time 10 hours a week
I feel now my wife spends more time socialising with her friends than spending time with my self and doing her share of the home duties. At the moment I do the lions share of the cleaning and most meals are take away with out vegies.
When I confront her it only ends up in an argument.
My Wife asks me when are we going to have a Baby ? I reply when we can both keep the house tidy.
The logical side of me Wants to say if you cant pull your weight its over, But in my heart I still Love her and I believe she loves me
I know someone in a similar situation he's been married 5 times and thinks nothing of it. HOMER S go with the flow. You've done your part let her do hers.
Apparently when you were "wooing" her, she got the impression that you were her sugar daddy and were going to take care of her completely. That meant treated like a princess - no housework, work, and now she wants a baby (to seal your commitment and maybe even your manly desire?)
Is that right?
You reap what you sow, friend.
