Hi everyone . I honestly can't tell if I'm being unreasonable ..

Dh has a very demanding job as it's his own business . He travels to England every week overnight and has to do some form of work most evenings . We have a 10 month old dd who is very clingy at the moment and I'm really struggling to get any housework done at all .

Dh also plays football all day Sunday . Every weekend it seems we have to see his family so that leaves very little time for us as a family .

Would it be unreasonable to ask him to give the football a rest for a while? I know this is his hobby and he loves it and as much as I love dd I'm finding myself feeling quite lonely !

I would just love to be able to do some housework at the weekend and spend some time as a family and it just never happens at the moment .

I am aware a lot of people have much bigger problems than this and I have so much respec for single parents. Maybe I'm just being a whinge??

Ofcourse YANBU. Could he even alternate weekend of family time/see his family then the next weekend family time/football?

Two questions:

1 Why does football take all day? That seems a bit unusual.

2. Why do you have to see his family every weekend? That is too much surely?

Oh and another one, have you asked your H how he feels about spending time with you?

It sounds shit and I feel sorry for you.
